Re: “Best Sonoran Hot Dogs

do not get sonoran hotdogs from guerro canelo. their other food is great, but the dogs are terrible. they don't use the right type of classic hispanic buns that melt in your mouth and have the little sweetness. the fact that they are on this list shows me it is politically influenced and someone is on the take. if you go there try any of their other items.
i agree that BK makes amazing sonoran dogs. personally i would try any of the independent street vendors with their own food carts/trucks. i have not had a bad experience at any of them yet

Re: “Best Fish Tacos

Visited Mariscos Chihuahua on Grant last night, Wednesday, with out of town visitors. Food was very good, as usual, but the service was terrible: The entire staff, except for the cook, spent the hour gossiping at the bar. We had to go to the bar to get chips, drink refills and to see the bill, and then they charged us for an extra entree. This location needs new management and a new staff. Just don't fire teh cook!

Re: “Best Burrito

What a joke! You'd think that living in Tucson, these people would actually have even a slight understanding of what good Mexican food is. I am extremely surprised that Burgerrito didn't make this list!!

If you want a burrito I recommend Taco Tote, which offers up a more authentic experience than anything on this list. If a bowl is more your style, Sir Veza's makes a mean one -- the carnitas is just great -- but make sure you head out to the East location of Sir V's, as the Northern location has the worst service in town (Sidenote, their happy hour is killer for drinks).

Re: “Best Tortillas

Love this place. Carne Asada burrito, the tortillas, a pint of red salsa. What else do you need. Take it all home and wash it down with a Bud light.

Re: “Best Mexican Fast-Food/Drive-Thru

@amyquinns001 Why? Nico's is a million times better than Taco Bell. I'm writing this for future Googlers' benefit. El Potosino, which used to be a Los Betos, is my favorite Taco Shop.

Re: “Best Burrito

Are you just sitting at the TW office and inserting this every year? One thing they do excell at is watered down salsa.

Re: “Best Sonoran Hot Dogs

After eating a sonoran dog at Papa Locos I can not eat one at EC. PL uses all beef dogs that are bigger so the you actually get meat with the first and last bites and the buns are to die for. EC uses those cheap little 3 meat scrap dogs. This review says in all.

Re: “Best Mexican

Xenophobia (or never go south of 22nd St fear) has obviously influenced this category, when only Mi Nidito has made the list from the MANY excellent Mexican food restaurants on South Fourth Avenue. Guillermos, Rigos, Michas and Crossroads are all "Old Pueblo" Mexican restaurants. El Torero, off S. 4th on 26th is another. As is the little take-out on S. 12th, Los Jarritos. I don't question the quality of Poca Cosa, but it is more a niche restaurant than a people's Mexican restaurant. El Charro, not the El Charro restaurant that I knew on Broadway many years ago, is tainted as a McMahon's chain. In the future, folks, let's get out and give some of these old favorites a try and vote them the recognition they deserve!

Re: “Best Burrito

Wow.. Nico's then Chipotle. Wow. My vote is for McDonald's breakfast burritos, if this is the mentality. Drunk gringos.
