Re: “Del Dia

Screw all y'all. Susana has been a boon to downtown for decades, and Poca and Poquito are two spots I return to every time I come home. If, by Mexican Food, you mean beans and yellow cheese, then there are plenty of places for you to spend your time and money. Enjoy them, that will leave extra room at Susana's for me.

Re: “Del Dia

Tim, because they (whoever "they" are) have designated it a "cool place" where "cool people" go. "Cool people" like to pay $6 for a taco because they think it makes them look "cool" and by no means is this the only "cool place" in town. Is it "cool" man?

Re: “Del Dia

I've never understood the attraction to CPC. This is place is terrible. The prices are crazy high, the servings only look big because they add a bunch of unnecessary fluff to them. The salad is constantly awful and takes up half of your plate anyway. I went here once when I moved to Tucson years ago and never went back - there are so, so many better Mexican restaurants here!

Re: “Sichuan Sidepiece

You're really missing out if you only look at the American menu. The not-so-secret Szechuan menu is where the best menu items are hiding. Just thinking about it makes my mouth water…

The Szechuan menu isn't secret, it's just something you have to specifically request.

Re: “Sichuan Sidepiece

Madeline Gerrish worked as a nurse at St. Mary's before she opened S.O. I went to school with her grandson. He was a nice kid from a nice family. Real Tucson people.

I miss Tucson. That Tucson, anyway.

Re: “Sichuan Sidepiece

Her name was "Magda" Her radio commercial was on KTKT, KCUB, KTUC, etc. between the Jim "That's exactly right Hank" Click and the Wally "Call for Wally" Sevitz commercials. "Hi, thisa Magda from Szechuan Omei......." And as Wally would say "and we'll come a-runnin"!

Re: “Sichuan Sidepiece

The story of this place is pretty cool. Most long time people in town remember Madeline's ads on TV. I can't remember the catch line but she was this cute little old woman inviting everyone to eat there. The remarkable part is that she bought the restaurant on her own without telling her husband - very nontraditional for the time and culture. She was a powerhouse in the city,

Did I just post to a five-year-old thread? What was it doing on the Chow Main Page?

Maybe they can change up their apparently less-than-stellar image this way.
