Re: “Delectables Restaurant and Catering

Delectables is anything but delectable. The food is adequate at best, extremely small portions, and way overpriced considering the quality. The atmosphere is dingy, the service stinks, and the food is nothing special. I don't know how this place keeps staying in business, let alone getting positive reviews in various magazines; they probably paid to have the publicity, because the place is horrible. Would never eat there again, and would advise anyone who reads this review to do the same and not waste their money.

Re: “Raging Sage Coffee Roasters

Air roasted coffee and then refrigerated, I can't think of a worse method - unless of course you roast coffee in a cast iron skillet and then put into the fridge...

Easily the worst espresso in Tucson, not to mention anywhere with an espresso machine. The grind is set so course all you get is over-extracted hot water, almost threw it up.

On the plus, they do have good scones.

Re: “Great Wall China

Tucson doesn't have any "top" Chinese restaurants, and unfortunately, the Tucson Weekly doesn't have any reviewers that know the difference between Chun King in a can and Alpo.

Re: “Sushi Tran

"Expect to spend at least $25 per person —with occasional missteps"

Excuse me - do you, Jacqueline, have a clue what $25 per person for 4 people buys in a really great but not over-priced place - with a tip we're at say $120+

There's something missing in your value system. Graduate and get a job and get connected to reality.

Re: “Claire's Cafe

We used to frequent Claire's for breakfast when we lived in NW area about 5 years ago. We had to be in Catalina early on a recent Saturday and thought we'd revisit. First clue should have been how empty the place was for a Saturday AM. Food and service sucked. Don't know what happened to this once great place.

Re: “November Bar and Cabaret

ZERO dancers , expected music, lousy mixed drink prices, The 'owner' was outside the club....claiming 'they' sold the place a long time ago.....(meaning the asian woman I met at least 2 yrs ago) DARK dank , uninviting.....The 'owner' was NOT friendly , had to answer his cell phone, and acted very defensive when I approached the entrance to the joint. This is just days after the SHOOTING, in which two employees were shot by some freak who , yes, got away. It was a mexican male as the local news reported. This place seems rather hostile because of this.

Re: “River's Edge Lounge

Unless this place was rebuilt, this place is a fire trap with ancient wiring, mold everywhere and bathrooms that need to be rebuilt. Last winter the bathroom floors were underwater.
Music can be good, but the bar is a dump.
Anyone who gave this place 5 stars must work there.
My girlfriend will never go there again and we love to dance. We call this place, 'The Sewer's Edge.'

Re: “The Office Bar

The people running this place were rude, unprofessional, and the service was ridiculous. Not to mention how the staff reeked of marijuana. I would not recommend this place.

Re: “Bangkok Café

My daughter and I ate here for lunch. The service was excellent- prompt and polite. The food left us puzzled- we appreciate Thai food for the rich medley of spicy flavors, but of the meals we were served, the only flavor that stood out was garlic. It wasn't terrible- but odd.

We've enjoyed Char's and Mina's much more.

Among the worst Mexican food joints in town. And their online coupons. What a joke. Never again!

Re: “The Skybox Restaurant and Sports Bar

Terrible service. Have been a few different times. Food only so-so. My husband & I ordered a hamburger to split and they tacked on a split plate charge! We don't mind paying a split plate charge when they actually bring additional sides but we're talking about a hamburger that was simply cut in half! When we complained, the waitress was rude and corrected the bill but then threw it across the table at us. Have written two letters to the owner about this incident with zero response. This place obviously does not care about custmer service or service recovery.

Re: “Brundog’s Zy-de-que Cajun and Barbeque

I had the gumbo and my friend had the etouffee. Both were tasteless. The Gumbo was thin, watery, it seemed they had forgotten the roux. Spices were absent...The etouffee was also not a winner. The hurricanes were quite weak and the overall impression was depressing. Not recommended for New Orleans food.

Re: “Bangkok Café

Great atmosphere, worst Thai food in Tucson. Everything at Bangkok cafe tastes watered down. It's almost like they do Thai food for Gringo's. Alas, for some strange reason this place is always packed while the authentic Thai restaurants namely Bai Thong and Char Thai do not seem to do as well. Perhaps people want watered down Thai food, but I know I sure don't!!

Re: “Monkey Burger

Monkey Burger - Stopped by to try their burgers and ordered a 1/2 pounder medium rare burger and 1/3 pounder for my 92 year old father. Both burgers came well done and asked one of the lady's to look at it. She said I am really sorry we will cook you aniother one. The next burger came back RAW which at this point showed them and said I go to Zen Burger and never have a problem what's up with your cooks. The next burger came back well done. The manager a young man asked how was it and said it was well done. The manager came back and said I have used three patty's to make you happy maybee I need to hire Zen Burger cooks. What a comment to make when his cooks could not cook a burger right.
Monkey Burger is a waste of time and they are rude! Save your money and go to Zen Burger or even the Wildcat House.

Re: “On a Roll

They stay open late, which means they keep their sushi out all night. Some of their rolls were creative, but that did not make up for the lack of quality and freshness in the fish. The decor was hip and modern, but the staff (and the late night patrons) looked more like street thugs than professionals.

Re: “Delectables Restaurant and Catering

Worst Service / Good food. We arrived a party of 8 on a recommendation from a neighboring restaurant. Upon entering the empty dining room I assured myself we would have good service. The menu looked great and after some time waiting for simple bus service, we ordered appetizers and drinks which came out very quickly. After that the server was non existent and I had to get up 3 times to get some one over to our table and the main course took over 45 minutes to get out, 2 plates at a time. The head chef did come out to our table and offered an excuse that the pasta we ordered took extra time to boil water for ( really ???) . I guess the guaranteed %20 tip was enough for our server to justify her totally ignoring us. An offer of free desert or the free stale cookies and brownies they gave our kids is not enough to make up for very poor service. WILL NOT RETURN

Re: “Panda Village

I just finished a take-out meal from Panda Village. I ordered two seafood combination dinners with side orders of pork spring rolls. The seafood was covered with a bland translucent sauce with no flavor what so ever. And funny that the previous reviewer mentioned her curry being filled up with water chestnuts, because so was mine. Aside from literally a cup of canned water chestnuts, of the essential ingredients that I would assume would be in this dish, I counted three shrimp, two slivers of imitation crab (with a fishy, uncrab-like flaver), and fleck or two of scallops. I really feel like I got ripped off big time. I won't be patronizing this place again.

Re: “Little Café Poca Cosa

It's hard to believe that this place is related to the Big Cafe Poca Cosa. It is incredibly loud, the service is perfunctory at best, and the food is pedestrian. Indeed, it is more like what you would expect at a stand, and having said that, most stands are better. Avoid.

Re: “La Feruta's NY Pizza Café

This _was_ La Ferlita's (Feruta's?) and it's been closed for at least four years. Now Giordano's. I liked La Ferlita's pizza better.
