Re: “Best Cafe Hangout

This place has ok food but the baristas working the front are nasty examples of the grungy, self-centered, hygene-challenged youth that infest downtown and 4th Avenue. If snottiness and slow service don't bother you then eat here. I ordered six sandwiches and they acted like it was the biggest order they had ever seen. When other customers came in behind me they told them it would take 50 minutes to get them served. They must've turned away at least six customers this way. It took me over an hour to get my own food. I think they planted, raised, and harvested the wheat out back before they baked it just to make my sandwiches. The owner needs to fire them ASAP before they go broke.

Re: “Best Place to Make Pork Fried Rice Your New Addiction

They didn't know they had gotten a mention in the Weekly until I went there to try it out for myself not long after the "best of" issue came out. Now I always pick some up there on the way home from the Casino. One of these days I might even try one of the other entrees.

Re: “Best Pizza

Vero Amore. Ballparks and lunch counters are all the majority of New Yorkers know about pizza. Vero Amore is the real deal like what you'll get in the best places in Little Italy.

Re: “Best Delicatessen

A restaurant that serves sandwiches made with the same cold cuts you can buy at the grocery store is not a deli. This is a decent sandwich shop but the word delicatessen only applies to establishments that roast their own meats and preferably bake their own bread as well. Being a native New Yorker I find it quite irksome to see the word delicatessen used so indiscriminately.

Re: “Best Pizza

Apparently no tried Dry River Pizza Company......by far the best pizza in Tucson. Brooklyn is just okay. Empire, Magpies, and Sauce all have better Pizza than Brooklyn. Brooklyn only won because it is cheap.

Re: “Best Place to Eat Pizza With Barflies

Empire is my new fave pizza in Tucson. Thin crust and AWESOME sauce!

Re: “Best Pizza

True NY pizza folds in half, then flops over at the tip and the oil/grease drips off. The only place we have found that comes close to being in NYC and having a good slice is at NYPD. No I do not work there, but have found Brooklyn Pizza Co. to be very inconsistent and ever since coming back from having the best pizza in NYC they have my vote hands down! They even have the right cheese! Not over or under sauced, all of the flavors are there they way they should be. Crust is exactly the crunch you should expect and you can get full off of 2 slices easily. Yes East Coast bias here as well, but if you're going to review pizza NY pizza is the only one to compare it to.

Re: “Best Burger

I still think Fuddrucker's is the best spot for a burger. Unfortunately it's way east and I live in northwest...

Re: “Best Delicatessen

Boar's Head cold cuts does not a deli make. A real deli roasts it's own meats and bakes it's own bread. A sandwich made with ingredients you can buy at any Fry's supermarket is not noteworthy.
