Re: “1702

Great beer selection but service is way too slow and they don't care. That may work on Friday night when you want people to linger, but at 12 on a Tuesday people need to get back to work. UA staff gets an hour for lunch, I once took my office there and got in trouble because it took us 1.5 hours to get back. Not good!

Re: “Diablo Burger

Local, grass-fed and so on. Their room is boring, the seating unusual, and the food tastes pretty much like you average premium burger. Fries did not impress either. Four of us found no reason to return. Two of us had a glass of wine, the size of each pour varied greatly.

Re: “The Hungry Fox Restaurant and Country Store

I like the place, breakfasts are great but the last time I ordered keilbasa and eggs, it was prepared just fine and served well but I think though they could at least go with Hillshire farms keilbasa instead of a split Bar-S economy Polish.

Re: “Famous Sam's Irvington

Music was played loudly...it interfered with conversations.

I was very surprised that they allowed people to come inside and (try to) sell candy and roses! (It reminded me of being in strip club. And so did some of the food: the chicken wings.)

Re: “Dragon Village Restaurant

Food was just so-so, kinda greasy. They sit a cart of fried rice and other foods right outside the bathroom door off the kitchen, County Health Department would have a fit if they saw that for sure. Very polite and good service but have had better food.

Re: “Magic Tower Games

I was there the day Joe Pinkley is referring to in his post. Joe came in signed up for the tournament that was being held, asked about a card price and then sat down at a table probably to construct his deck. The owner then came up and asked if he wanted the card and did throw a fit when Joe said he wasn't going to purchase the card. (which was under $5) The owner must of had a rough day or something because I have been there multiple times and although he was never the most pleasant person he certainly was never like that.

Re: “Ba-Dar Chinese Restaurant

The difference between eating in at Ba Dar and ordering delivery is night and day. Some consistency would be appreciated.

Re: “The Hog Pit Smokehouse Bar and Grill

This place has a great deal of potential and is pretty damn good as is. There are times, however, where their BBQ lacks the flavor punch that it is capable of.

As a bar, this place is 5 stars for sure!

Re: “AJ's Fine Foods

Hmmm. Could have been a wonderful experience but too much crammed into too little space. A little too aggressive selling wine and the aisles are a bit narrow. Variety is okay but not everything is of the best quality, i mean c’m if you’re gonna sell truffle oil couldn’t you have chosen a good one?
Meat department shines but all their pork has been brines but if you like spending money on salt water, go for it. BUT, too much of the meat is dry packed disallowing any real butchering or options with regard to fat - the main component of flavor in meat. They try but they just don’t have the goods. Now that there is a REAL Whole Foods in town they will need to pick up their game.
There ARE independent butchers and fishmongers in town that put this place to shame.
Their produce is well waxed and geometrically piled but has very little variety. Where exactly do I find Escarole or Rapini?
Too bad one can not award half stars because it honestly only deserves two and a half from me.

Re: “El Charro Café Sahuarita

Nothing wrong with it being in Sahuarita...we need more sit down places to eat. I was thrilled to hear they were coming to Sahuarita. Hubby works at the PCC campus downtown and he and some of his instructers go to the original El Charros from time to time and he is always talking about it. I was a bit dissappointed, the tables were to close together. The food is so so...although I do like the original taco...they are made like I was taught to make the...beef patty and tortilla are fried together...they can keep their lettuce salad topping. I prefer shredded lettuce onions , tomatoes and cheese for my toppings..not a salad mixture with peas ans radishes. We have visited three times...I prefer Manuels local Mexican resturant. Sure would love to see and Italian or seafood eateries here in Sahuarita.

Re: “New Delhi Palace

New management and maybe chefs. Not as good as in the past.

Re: “Luke's Italian Beef

These places could use a good scrubbing, but must be ok with
the health department. Have been to Luke's on Ft Lowell as well
as the one on Grant. Big difference in the amount of meat put onto
the sandwiches. Ft. Lowell site knows how to load up the bun,
much more stingy at the Grant location. The Italian Beef is
fantastic!!

Re: “HUB Restaurant and Creamery

Excels at late-night bar snacks--try the ranch fries! Beer selection is decent, though not anywhere near as deep as that of other local joints.

However, falls short as a sit-down dinner venue. Meats were served lukewarm over several visits, and generally seemed to have been prepared well in advance of the order. On our most recent visit, our waiter, while initially helpful and prompt, seemed distracted. He vanished shortly after taking our order, and we never saw him again.

We may be back for a drink and a snack, but probably not for dinner.

Re: “Amereno's Little Italy

A bit on the pricey side with above average food. The service was outstanding and a nice clean atmosphere. The Veal dish that I had was Good (but a tiny bit salty) and the Sauce on the Spaggetti tasted like it was from a can.
This place is a nice date place with a nice romantic setting.

Re: “Toni's Family Restaurant

Standard diner fare, ate there twice. First had the chicken fried steak breakfast, very good, thin large steak cooked old fashioned style on the flat top vice deep frying, asked for scrambled eggs soft and that's how I got them. Second time, burger platter, asked for medium, done right! Fries were so hot and fresh I burnt my fingers at first. Super fast delivery, almost no waiting and they were busy. Only complaint was the waitress reeked of cheap perfume, but I guess that's a diner!

Re: “Elle Wine Bistro

Okay but the food was underwhelming. When we went the waitstaff seemed to lack training. Lighting and table location was odd.

Re: “La Cocina de Gabby

Not fancy but with really well made food. The menu is limited, which in this case, is good, as every thing is home/scratch made. Service is very freindly albeit bit slow, but after a Margarita or two, who cares. This could become a very nice neighborood cantina.
