Re: “AliBaba Persian and Mediterranean Restaurant

The food here is totally bland and NOTHING ordered between myself and the 3 other people I went with was remotely fresh. According to my friend, they got a new owner a couple years ago and that's when the food started to suck.

Re: “Magical Mystery Dinner Theater

Horrible! Maybe we were expecting to much, but it's not worth $39 a ticket, the show took close to an hour to start after it's scheduled time. The whole show was very amateurish, the "actors" served as the waiters, the food was just disgusting, I too have no idea what that white sauce was nor what the heck that bland rubbery rolls they tried to pass off as chicken. I attended the 11/13/2010 and was one of the people that walked out. Don't do it listen to the reviews, I'm not one to walk out, so I don't waste my money but it was too much to handle.

Re: “Magical Mystery Dinner Theater

In 10 years of living in Tucson, this is the worst idea I have ever suggested to my friends and family. No Mystery here give it up, the acting is pitiful, food beyond explanation and yes what was that white "sauce". Definately NOT for children bordered on pornograhic. No words can describe how I wanted to just get up and walk out like some of the other tables did but having paid $39.00 a person we saw it through to the end. One would think after 40 years you would just get better, not the case with this one, please fellow theater goers pass this one up......

Re: “Magical Mystery Dinner Theater

This was the biggest waste of 3 hours of my life and a total rip-off. Lame dialogue, props, talent and definitely not kid-friendly despite what the delusional owner said. The biggest MYSTERY of the night was what the heck what the white stuff that was poured all over the "chicken." Better Business Bureau, it's time to close the longest running Mystery dinner show in Arizona.......Please.

Re: “Golden Phoenix

I get the impression the buffet is leftovers from some other restaurant. I would consider going hungry instead of dining here again. It is not just one thing either. Dirty place, low quality food, everything seems to be at room temperature except for a cold glass of water.

Re: “El Charro Café on Oracle

Horrible horrible customer service, the food was cold when it came out and they just recently raised the price of almost everything by $1 - I would pay the price if they had half a clue how to manage and treat their customers. This is my 2nd bad exp. as I gave them a 2nd chance thinking the first time was maybe just a bad day for them. Wrong!!!! I will NEVER eat at this location again - nor will any of our friends or family.

Re: “CrossFit Works

The worst cross-fit gym in Tucson. I was a member at this gym, until I noticed people getting injured, not using good technique or form!!! The owner of this gym- Jennifer Higgins is totally strange. She drops people for not following a paleo diet, or participating as fully as she expects. If the ownership of this gym was better, I think it would be a much better place. It is dirty and small and the trainers aren't exceptional. Save your money!!! There are much better/cleaner/nicer/professional Xfits in Tucson.

Re: “Magical Mystery Dinner Theater

If there was a ZERO star that's what I would rate this place as. The owner - ROSS HORWICTZ - hung up on me when I called and was inquiring about seating arrangements and he would not honor a certificate to his own establishment! DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND HARD EARNED MONEY TO GO TO THIS ESTABLISHMENT!!! I would reccomend finding something else to spend over a hundred dollars on! Oh, and by the way, gratuity of 18 percent is automatically tacked onto your bill!!! So you're tipping even if you are not satisfied which in my opinion makes me think that there were a lot of unhappy customers and had to start that policy!

Re: “Vero Amore

Don't waste your time or money at the Swan Rd location. It's hard to believe the owners allow this place to operate using the same name as the Dove Mountain store (which is absolutely fantastic). A visit to Swan Road found disinterested, messy wait staff and food that was not worthy of the Vero Amore name. No water was offered, had to ask for menus, no offer of a wine list, grey colored prosciutto in the appetizer..... Not good.

Spend the time and drive to Dove Mountain for the real Vero Amore. You will be shocked at the difference.

Re: “Janos J-BAR

In April, The last time I was at Janos J-Bar and I do mean the last, there were no entrees or appetizers on the menu that were not laden with blazing hot chili peppers. I asked the waitress if she noticed this and she said she did and so did many diners and they complained. I asked her why Janos put peppers in everything and she replied, "He has just gone crazy with peppers." I asked if he grew them and that made them profitable to use instead of herbs and spices and she chuckled. She said the only solution she knew was to order a plain vegetarian plate and request no peppers as the other items already had hot pepper in the dishes including the crusts and batters. The plain veggie plate was twenty something dollars she thought. I politely told her I can steam veggies at home and I gave her back the menus and we left. Don't dine at J-Bar unless you really like food so hot with pepper it will burn your mouth.

Weak. Don't waste your time. Try Monkey Burger.

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.
