Oh man... I got a new fav.... Calle Tepas... on Boadway and Wilmot... owned by the son of the two Guadalajara Grills... awesome..El Pastor tacos.. only avialable on Fri Sat and Sun...
Well, Mama's Hawaiian Bar-b-cue didn't make the list this year but as one of our spirited regulars said..nothing a week of free lunches to the office of the Tucson Weekly can't fix:)
Hey, I can always appreciate a differing opinion, as long as it is not along the lines of "Olive Garden is the premier spot for authentic italian food"
I have never been to Asia, but I married someone who was born in southeast asia, and she dines at these places with me!
I have tried Thai food in SF, SD and NY.. and while I am not saying we have the best I have ever eaten, I will say that it is good and I enjoy these places often. (Bai Thong, REAL often)
C.J. Hamm, its ok I'm kind of an odd one out here - I lived in SF Bay Area for a few years and visited Asia multiple times, so I've been spoiled with really authentic, high quality Thai :) Most places here use really poor quality oils (ie Canola) and low quality meats and veg
I vehemently disagree with Dylan. I think Char and Bangkok are good, and bai thong and sa'ing are excellent. Still haven't tried V yet
Where is Mama's Hawaiian. You guys are missing the boat on that...
rconnelly YES! It's kind of far, but oh so good - only passable Thai place in town, imho
I agree with some, disagree with some. I certainly do appreciate The Tucson Weekly food writers and staff for this compilation. Gives me good ideas, since I can never think of new places to go!
@Dylan, have you tried Sa'ing Thai at 9136 E. Valencia?
Good list - but saying Tucson has a great Thai food scene? Are you kidding me? no no no...they're almost all Chinese chefs ≠ poor excuse for "Thai food"
Try the Kangaroo Tacos at Aussie Cantina! One of the most unique taco dishes in Tucson!
Sally Shemwell have you no shame by posting your "specials" at the restaurant you own? There's a reason why none of your dishes made this list….
Maya's Market sandwich from Beyond Bread. Perfection.
Scarpia: Or it's possible that I've done quite a bit of food writing, have worked in the food industry and that we just happen to disagree.
Oh Yeah, the original lemon Eegee is the next best crudo cure after menudo.
LeCaves, finest glazed donut on the planet, and I've been around! (and the jellies, crullers, turnovers, cakes and pies)
I had lunch there today. Handsome room, good service, skimpy menu, average food. I thought when Jimmy and Garret left town we would be spared these amateur/editor restaurant reviews.
it's supposed to be Restaurant Sinaloa on Prince Road!!!!
I make my own "best tacos" - seasoned ground beef cooked with enchilada sauce, cheddar cheese, with thinly sliced iceberg lettuce, cherry tomatoes (cut in half), chopped onion or scallions, topped with homemade guacamole (strong on minced garlic and fresh squeezed lime juice) - all enclosed in a freshly oil heated and crispy corn tortilla shell - YUM!!!!
