My parents and I ate there in the 1970"s.
I remember not really liking to go there. I couldn't say why, I guess I just liked Bob's Big Boy, Johny's , Sambo's, Hobo Joe's, Austin's etc. better.
Thanks for the info about the pictures of the family on the wall. Just yesterday I saw a picture of the interior of the restaurant. The AZ Daily Star had some pictures of Original Restaurants that are still open in Tucson. The thing I really remembered about Gus Balon's was a big mural that was painted on that wall. As I recall, it was a picture of a tree and water. I just remember studying it a lot and thinking of stories while we ate.
"The bread, rolls and biscuits eaten in the restaurant today are the same recipes he was serving since the mid-19th century. It was Kelli's mom who brought them to Tucson."
You do mean the mid 20th century, right?
WOW couldn't disagree more! I can only speak to Dominick's pizza because it's the best , in fact it's so good that I have not tried anything else because when I even get close to Dominick's I crave their pizza. I have refereed ton of people there and EVERYONE loves all the food on the menu.
I highly recommend Dominick's to anyone and will stand behind my claim of the best pizza!
Aaaand another TW restaurant review where the link to the official restaurant site just redirects to the TW homepage. Fix it, stat.
Anyway, is this the place that was originally going to be a taco shop from Florida?
Mahalo!! Have to check this out!
Is "roily" really a selling point for guacamole?
