Best Margarita any where.
40+ years ago, Club 21 or the old Panchos on Grant would always be the place I would take a gal on our first date, and the #4 was usually the choice at the club.
We moved to Tucson in 1960 and lived in a motel close to the Club. My parents started going there for dinner. Later on, in 1962, that is where they took me for my 21st birthday and I got to drink my first margarita. Still my favorite drink and Mexican food is still my favorite too. Loved the article. We live in Lakeside, Arizona now, oore would still be going to Club 21!
Our favorite go - to Mexican Restaurant. Whenever we have out of town guests, we always bring them there for authentic Mexican food. Skip is always there and always stops by to see how the food is and if we need anything. Only complaint...there's a big gaping hole in the men's bathroom wall and lots of graffiti on stall walls.
I love the new location and I've been twice so far. They're down the street from me, and great for a weekend lunch.
Just a note though - the Carrows building was not their original location. They originally opened on the west side of Campbell, not too far from where they are now and subsequently moved to the east side of Campbell into the big building.
Family sounds great. How about the food? Where is this place?
If you don't visit Ahmet & Halida's place, it's' Your Loss! The food is OUTSTANDING & one-of-a-kind for Tucson/southern Arizona. The family is as good as the food. Their story is a Real Example of Land of Opportunity! Congratulations on your anniversary & best wishes for many more years!
This is a tremendously touching story. Thanks for introducing us to Chef Alisah's. It would have been helpful to mention menu and location. Why exclude that stuff in Chow article spotlighting this hidden gem?
this is not a review! It's a nice piece about a nice restaurant.
Writing a restaurant review 101: address, business hours, highs/lows, drink options. A photo of plated food helps too.
Did you actually eat there?
Thanks for the help. I guess my eyes went past "Chef Alisah's" as a reference to the Chef, not the restaurant. My bad. Sounds like a great place.
Sorry for misspelling the name! It's Chef Alisah's.
Here's a link to what looks like a luscious menu:
I've been going there since it opened in 2008, and the dishes have never disappointed me. Below is the website with the menu. Check it out, go, and enjoy.
The name is in the Heading and repeated in the 2nd paragraph. It's "Chef Asiah's."
Here's the address:
Michelangelo San Marcos Plaza, 5931 N Oracle Rd #117, Tucson, AZ 85704
You Goggle the hours and read additional reviews.
What is the name of this restaurant? If it's in there, it's easy to miss. Address? Is there any particular dish on the menu to describe? This is a good story about these members of the community and their journey. But I will have to search to find out how to try this place. Why make it so difficult?
I love yoshimatsu . I'm so glad they are doing well.
The Poke bowl!
I would love to write for the Swill section...lets make that happen!
Hi Jorgiana. I'm not sure where you received the information that college students are not eligible, but that's not entirely true. College students DO qualify, but only if they meet certain requirements. Here is a link that can help you figure out whether or not you qualify.
Curious as to food assistance for college students. I just found out college students are ineligible for SNAP. Other than market on the move, and going to food banks, is there help for working college students?
