Re: “Sonoran Ballroom Academy

Good big floor. The instructor who the studio provided only had a few months of dance experience and it showed bad! We later overheard the studio's manager talking rudely about other students and teachers behind their back. Ultimately, we decided not to sign his contract.

Re: “Guilin Chinese Restaurant

If I could give this restaurant zero stars I would. I've been to this restaurant four times with others who are extremely fond of it, but I find the food tastes bad and looks bad too. In addition, I would ask them how they prepare a dish before you rate this as healthy food. My last meal I had them prepare the tofu/broccoli dish with a Mongolian sauce. The tofu was overcooked and had a strange taste, the sauce had the consistency of water, the broccoli wasn't even warm so it was basically raw in terms of crunchiness. When I asked them how it was prepared, I was told that the "tofu is deep fried before it is added to the dish." Deep fried tofu in a sauteed vegetable dish is not healthy, obviously. I don't understand why this restaurant gets a great rating every year and why they claim to be healthy Chinese food. If you want something much better and healthy, try Asian Bistro at Ft. Lowell and Campbell. The Mongolian Tofu is AWESOME, as is the rice noodles and vegetables dish with a name that escapes me.

Re: “The Sweet Life Portrait Studio

My Great Grandmother celebrated her 100th birthday. We wanted to make it memorable by taking a family portrait while we can seeing that she doesn't have many moons left. We were enticed with the savings that we thought we were getting by choosing Whitney as our photographer. In hindsight, I would have paid the extra money for someone with manners. We wanted the portrait done at our Grandmothers house in which she lived her entire life. We spend days of hard labor to fix up the home and get it in perfect shape for our anticipated portrait. I was disappointed when Whitney arrived late with the excuse that she had "bubble guts." I wasnt sure what that meant until I used the google search engine and found disturbing results. She was setting up her equipment and lights in the living room when I noticed she was passing flatulence. Upon confrontation, she then tried to pass blame onto my dear Great Grandmother who sat their innocently in her 90 year old rocking chair. I was hoping that by tolerating her poor attitude and manners that her work would be worth the hassle. Her photo arrived 4 months later and in poor condition. It looked like it sat in the back of someones car. It had dirty foot prints all over it and was wrinkled in many places. It was bittersweet that my Grandmother was not able to see her last photo. She sadly passed away before the photo arrived. I'm just glad she wasn't able to see the poor quality of a portrait that we all worked so hard to prepare for.

Re: “Beyond Bread

I do not understand this places' popularity. Like were is the meat? The sandwiches are hugh only because the bread is hugh with very little filling. And when I eat there which has only been twice in eight years, I worry about chipping a tooth.

Re: “V Fine Thai

Awful food. Seriously bad. The waitress I had had some big towel on her head, smelled like cabbage, and couldn't understand a thing I said. Padd Thai is a signature dish and any halfway decent Thai place should be able to pull it off. It was gross. We complained and someone who claimed to be the owner came over. Started telling us that it was a recipe from her grandmother. Who cares lady, it's BAD!!

Char's - Sorry I strayed. Never again!!!

Re: “Century Gateway 12

Don't bother calling Fandango for ticket prices. The recording says it will give the theater's phone number but it doesn't. Century Gateway is also not in the phone book. So don't bother with this theater, you will be very frustrated and get no info what so ever.

Re: “Amereno's Little Italy

Bad Italian

Ragu is better! All the people adding four and five star must be related to the Asian family that owns this place cause it was musty and smelly inside, the food was cold in the center and the staff was clueless.

Don't waste your time coming here it is NOT worth it!

Re: “AliBaba Persian and Mediterranean Restaurant

Slow service, took a half hour to get our food. Coupons are worthless, you spend way more money using their coupons than if you did not. This restaurant forgot almost half of our order. We had to remind them that some of our food was missing.............and when it finally arrived we were done eating. Worst restaurant ever!

Re: “Sushi Garden

Re: “Maynards Market and Kitchen

I've always been a fan of the grab and go food available at the Market, and then today I noticed that the muffins in the case that were being sold were COSTCO muffins, marked up to $2.50/each. Unacceptable to market food as made in house, then sell generic Costco food. There is no doubt they were from Costco, all four flavors that come in the standard mix package.

Re: “Asian Bistro

Middle school teacher here on a time limit - called in an order for delivery at 10:45. It did not arrive till nearly 1pm - I had 5 minutes. I called several times, and the person answering just said 'hello!" and would hand the phone to someone who spoke English. The English speaker, instead of saying that they were sorry, corrected me - seems I ordered at 10:48... Just as well, the Tom Yum soup had NOTHING in it - just broth - I ordered veggie Tom Yum. There were a few threads of onion. I ordered for friends, and felt bad for them. Most of the dishes are a variation of: fry up some meat and dump a slightly different sauce on it. Orange chicken and Thai chicken nearly the same. Very soggy. I will never return...

Re: “The Original Mr. K's BBQ

I was excited to be taken here by my Fiancee as I am from the South and recently moved here and was craving good BBQ. Sadly, I did not find it at Mr. K's. The meats were average and the sides were incredibly bland. Wasn't thrilled at the thick slice of plain white bread that accompanied the meal as well. Lots of flavors missing at Mr. K's.

Re: “HUB Restaurant and Creamery

WORST MANAGEMENT IN TUCSON! THERE ARE BETTER PLACES THAT ACTUALLY WANT YOUR BUSINESS BESIDES HUB!

The evening of my wife and my first visit to Hub started off wonderful. Great drinks, great atmosphere, OK food. I thought this was a place I could spend every Friday night. Hostess was very friendly and waitress was FANTASTIC (don't remember her name but my receipt says "L7" for the name).

Evening went downhill fast when the server dropped my wife's mustard and ketchup covered hot dog on her lap and in the process launched a full cup of ketchup all over me. The ketchup showered me, covering my sweater, shirt, pants. It even went into my hair and went down my collar and all over my neck and face. My wife rushed up to the restroom and the server (who was different from the waitress) casually said, "oh sorry about that I'll get some club soda, and do you need anything else?" obviously not realizing or caring about the ketchup fury he had unleashed upon my evening. I asked for the manager, whose name was Bret. This is where it truly gets bad. As I still wiped the ketchup off my neck and face, I told him that I was covered in ketchup. His response? "It was an accident."

"I understand that but I am just covered witch ketchup," I said still in dismay and shock at the situation. Bret callously repeated "It was just an accident." As he began to walk away he said under his breath, "Your meal will be comped."

I understand accidents happen and everybody has an off night. But what upset me so much was that Manager Bret never once apologized to my wife or I for what had happened. It was my waitress that apologized multiple times and even continued to give us excellent service after the ketchup shower. In fact Bret seemed inconvenienced to even come over and talk to me. It is very sad to me that someone like that is the face of this business. No one should be above apologizing for their own or their staff's mistakes. To top it off, they only comped the hot dog and tiny cup of ice cream my wife had afterward instead of our entire meal. I did not feel entitled to a free meal, but Bret don't tell me you will comp the whole thing and then only comp what was dropped all over us.

I am aware that it was just another busy Friday night for Manager Bret, but for us- his customers- it was our moment to decompress after a long hard week that was ruined. I just wish he would have cared a little bit about the situation. At the end of the night he went home the same as any other night I am sure. But now I have a ruined shirt, sweater and pair of pants and not so much as an apology from Bret.

Doubt I will go back to Hub. Makes me sad because I really wanted to enjoy myself there and add it to my list of go-to places. Food is similar to BJ's Brewhouse and at BJ's at least you can expect better parking and a manager that likes their job and cares about repeat business.

Got a salad that consisted of finely chopped up lettuce and little else. Not worth the nearly ten dollars I paid.
