Love their steak and beans, and salads...never have enough room for dessert. Servers have been friendly. We enjoy walking around the trail dust town, and shop a bit...don't visit much anymore since moving to a rural area SE of Tucson...have to drive to Sonoita for a decent steak now :D
KJ Sean is by far one of the best KJ's I have ever met. He has the most diverse and comprehensive collection of song choices and provides a fun experience.
The Venue, Salty Dawg, while a bit congested at times, provides friendly and fast service.
TMW is a must see whether its at the Salty Dawg or a street corner!
Great service! Friendly staff beef stroganoff and fish is awesome wings are all drumsticks 13 per order! Great dive where there's something todo everyday of the week especially now since footballs here!
No new reviews so i thought I would post one.
Friday has perennial 80's and G. Cover charge and packed. Saturday night ; no cover smaller crowd and sometimes very good bands (Giant Blue, etc). Definitely the night to go. Mixed crowd with many older people looking for hookups (well it's true). Drinks are very reasonable for Foothills, food good. Bartenders are nice and fast
This restaurant has the best vegetarian Vietnamese selection in Tucson--very extensive. Prices range from more expensive than I would expect to very cheap. Luckily their excellent baguette sandwiches are only $4.50 and are delicious.
M&L Airport Inn Bar and Grill come check it out! New bold and dynamic atmospere that will stimulate your mind. The new remodeled look is updated and has two new beautiful patios and a brand new kitchen opening soon!
Great bar great people friendly staff new hot bartenders ! Cant wait to see the finish project!
Caliente DJ has a great variety of music from Old school to the new hits and even reggaeton and cumbias! He has the party lights and he's system sounds great! The music he spins makes you wanna dance! =)
I moved here from San Francisco and have had a hard time finding really good Chinese food. BirdsEye frozen vegetables tossed with plain chunks of tofu in a salty brown sauce doesn't do it. I can't believe it took me this long to try Lotus Garden, but it's the real thing--snow peas and carrots were lightly cooked so they were bright and had a bit of snap, the sauce relied on the flavors of its ingredients and not salt for its punch, the tofu was sliced thin and lightly fried for texture and flavor, and the shrimp were huge. My new go-to Chinese place.
Very good food and an excellent selection! I'm glad I live close by. P.S. I spoke Spanish and was answered in English!
Agree that it is a great addition to the Oro Valley restaurant scene. My son-in-law visited from Cambridge MA over the holidays and felt it was a real find. He brews beer at a place called John Harvard's ( yeah it is near the University by the same name) . Lot of great beers and an incredible variety of west-of -the-Mississippi local brews. Food is good brew pub snack food . Not sure what a gastro-pub is, but sense the taste/variety fell a bit short. But this is a place about the 100 + beers, not the food.
I enjoyed the entire experience. Everyone did an excellent job. Only suggestion would be to have more private tables and a little more elbow room. It's a beautiful location and very central.
The strip mall is dumpy, and the interior of Mother Hubbard's doesn't win for style. What they do have is great service, great food, and fair prices. My wife and I have been there for breakfast and lunch. It's pretty much a scratch prep for everything. Their locally sourced and created ingredients are top notch. Food with character!
Very good sushi. Didn't try anything else, but will definitely go back.
Maria's Taco Salsas are pure magic they are so fresh and delicious, with creative ingredients. The place is small, yet a diamond with the best tacos in Tucson for this experienced gourmand of Mexican culinary delights.
Let me start where I am coming from. When HiFalutin first opened my wife and I went and had the most horrible experience: slow, bad service, cold food, sending it back twice, and horrible wait times, in a very noisy crowded atmosphere. Even talking to the owner about the issues seem to elicit a "Meh!" attitude. So bad we walked out after 2 hours and not paying.
Fast forward maybe 8 years and for some reason my wife got spammed on their email list. Communications ensued and we were offered a gift card in an effort to try them again. OK, so we thought as they were still around after 8+ years they must have some sort of following.
We decided to go there 5:30pm Monday, the 22nd of August with friends and it was like night and day. We had a couple of happy hour $3 appetisers and then I had the $17 top sirloin steak with the wife lashing out on the $25 filet, both were cooked exactly as we asked them to be and were very tasty. The sides were good and hot, as hot food should be. Our friends both had enjoyable chicken dishes.
The service was somewhat inattentive but absolutely nothing like the abysmal service just after opening.
Would we recommend them now? Certainly and I'll stop bitching to friends about how bad they were 8 years ago :-)
Beer selection is excellent, with a few local-ish brews and a ton of ones from places you may never have heard of. Pizza is serviceable, with a crispy crust and decent toppings. Service can be slow, even during the summer months--plan to linger.
Great selection & fresh pizzas, topping combos range from classic to new inventions. Be sure to schedule extra time if you go during lunchtime.
This is one of the places we think of when introducing friends to downtown dining. Casual but hip, well-prepared dishes, and a friendly staff. Favs are the mac & cheese, and steak frites.
Tried their Sunday Taco-bar buffet. Mexico City-style, slow-cooked, full-flavored meats are exceptional. Weekday menu excellent. One of the best shredded beef chimichangas I have eaten! Great fresh food totally prepared in Gabby's kitchen, even the chips. If you like good, simple food, check it out. I am going back for the buffet for sure.
