This is by far my favorite thai place in Tucson. Yes, the service is not the best, the restaurant is often closed on random days and it's a little run down but the food is well worth it. Also, the lunch buffet is great and inexpensive.
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.
I have never been so disappointed with a service in my life. I have 4 cats and wanted a portrait with me and them all wearing identical sweaters that I knitted myself. I worked very hard knitting them and wanted my hard work captured in a family portrait. The events leading up to the portrait were precessional and gave the impression that my needs and expectations were ensured to be met. I was wrong. I was way wrong. When we arrived at her studio she snickered and made a snarling remark about how horrible my sweaters looked. After a brief moment of fight back tears I continued on because I didn't want to let my cats down. Especially Mittens. He has been excited the whole week prior. My cats were well behaved and didn't make any fuss at all. It really helped out that 3 of them were stuffed after they passed away 2 years ago. When she took the picture she didn't even tell me to say "cheese." As a young girl, that was always my favorite part when it came to taking a picture. She took the picture unexpectedly and wouldn't take another without wanting to charge me for an additional photograph. When I got the picture in the mail, I was mortified. Her photoshop skills were lackluster at best. I felt like Mittens could have done better. He was so disappointed when he saw the photograph that he walked away and hit under the bed. Prior to the photograph I asked her to remove a mole that noticeably sits on my face. Not only did she not remove it, but I'm fairly certain she added hairs to it. Circling back to her candid snapshot, Mittens was licking him self and I was in mid-sneeze. Needless to say, I am unhappy and never plan on calling her again.
I own a local business here in Tucson, and I always try to support the local community and small business. When approached by this studio for work collaborations I figured I would give it a chance. The owner is young, and very unprofessional. Talks about her personal life in less then pleasent ways. Not very reliable as our appointment times had to be changed a few times. I think her quality of work shows promise but I wouldn't jump at the chance to work with this business again.
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

dont know what the big deal is. Food is average. No bar. long wait during prime time. Clinton ate hear? So what. He ate at MC'D's too.
A feast for the eyes and ears. A very soulful, sensual place.
From the ambience, to the friendly staff, to the great food there is nowhere else in Tucson that I enjoy eating more. It is a must hit every time my family is in town!
Awesome food, haven't had a mediocre meal ever since I started eating there. It's usually packed Sunday late-mornings, so get there early or be ready to wait for a table, it's a small-midsize restaurant.
Best prices for cards. Fun atmosphere. Also, one of the top rated judges presides over the events. Good people. Good times.
I tried this place years ago and never went back as I thought the food was mediocre and the place too loud. It can get loud but its really a great restaurant in an area of town with few choices of restaurants. Pizza is just fine, thin crust better than regular. Food portions are hugh and all the food is tasty and reasonably priced. Great staff. Beats dealing with a Brooklyn Pizza kind of place.
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.
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!!!
Great beers, tasty food, attentive servers, no skimpy portions! Very relaxed kick back atmosphere, pool tables too.
The best food I've had in Tucson. I went last Septemeber for my birthday and again for Cinco de Mayo and then my mom, aunt and I resolved to go at least once a month. I always get the Plato Poca Cosa and give the chef free reign on what I eat and have never been disappointed. The chocolate mole is to die for.
Try it for Hot or Cold Sandwiches, Hot Italian entrees, even salads - this food rocks!
Careful, if you order the Chicken Parm sandwich... You'll start craving this place and be back again & again!
My favorite secret menu item - A Tuna Sandwich on a TOASTED roll. Trust me...
Eating here was the worst dinning experience that I have ever had in any restaurant ever. I went with my grandparents and one of their elderly friends who had suggested the place and wanted to teat us. We started out by ordering a few appetizers and I bit into something rancid. We instructed the waitress to take away the remainder of that appetizer tray and to bring me a clean plate so I could finish sharing the other appetizers. She asked us if we wanted to order another appetizer and we said no, that would be fine, just bring a clean plate please. She did, and we went on. Then a guy, who I assume was the manager, actually brought the remainder of the appetizer plate back to our table and demanded to know who said that the food tasted rancid. I said I did. He said he didn’t understand and that he didn’t think that I knew what the word rancid even meant. That it meant rotten. I was blown away. I was trying to be discreet because the friend had highly recommended this restaurant and was picking up the tab, and now the manager is hovering over our table with the tray in hand, telling me that that it must be the balsamic vinegar that I’m tasting, and that I don’t know rotten, slimy spinach when I just spit it out of my mouth! To make things even worse, he goes on and on to tell me I should order something else, that If I think that tastes bad, than I’m not going to like the Greek salad that I ordered as a side dish to my entrée because that’s “just the way it tastes”. And you know what, I didn’t. It was completely bland and dry. But that’s besides the fact that no body enjoyed their meals after that absurd encounter. Being there with octogenarians, I didn’t react the way I wanted to. We tried to mumble through with some awkward jokes about him coming back out to ask me if I knew the definitions of more words, but it was still embarrassing. Can you imagine what would have been like if it was a dinner with clients or people from work? I will definitely never go there again with anyone, for any reason, and I suggest no one else does either.
Now repurchased by Jose, the original owner of Hideout West on Mission. It is clean and bright inside and out. Worth stopping by to check it out. Back to basics neighborhood bar with good food, drinks, and 14 flat screen HD TV's.
