Pretty spot on review except my service for lunch was very good. Will try it again.
Period? Are you for sure about that?
Hubby's English so he's had his share of fish and chips, however we both agree this place is crap. Period.
The fish tacos are pretty darn awesome as well.
That's insane if they don't have malt vinegar.
As a former employee of roughly 16 years I gotta say that Murph and his partner Jeff are like none other when it comes to employers and restauranteurs. They are true family men and their family includes each of their employees. As restaurants constantly come and go in this little city the Kingfisher boys continue to be top of the class. As many, I can't wait to see what's next.
Great interview with a real Tucson legend.
65 year old tourists? You can't be referring to Rita Connelly or are you?
Been here several times. I like the fried shrimp. Wife likes the fish and chips, Much better than what we had at the Hud for 15.00!
Kingfisher has the best baby back ribs in town! Check out the half slab on the late-night menu for $14, which includes skinny French fries & cole slaw sides. This is such a cool place, in the bar, or dining room. Murph is a Tucson legend in his own time!
Gotta have more baby back ribs, but just wish he would open on the far east side at Tanque Verde & Catalina Highway - it would be a license to print money, as nobody out here in the Tanque Verde Valley wants to drive all the way into town for dinner & wine, & then try to safely make it back home way out here. Some 20,000 or so of us out here, Murph! Get with it & check out the huge corner here!
I would like to see the hours of the locations shown. That is just as important as what to ask for when you get there.
This place is delicious! We have been going since it opened. After the first run with no malt vinegar we take our own bottle with us ~ they also have malt vinegar there you just have to ask for it.
Yum! Can't wait to try all of these dishes!😋 I would also add the Mega Fries from Greek House...Yum, yum😋😋
Isn't it just "Mi Nidito"?
Also, does anybody at the Weekly ever go south of 36th street? As far as I can tell, the southernmost location listed here is Mi Nidito, barring eegee's. There are a heck of a lot of restaurants out this way.
Got me, Donkiyote. Gluten-intolerant people?
What about Union or Reforma? the Union's brunch is so yummy and the seabass at Reforma is fab.
Thanks for the many great suggestions. In the Brunch suggestions I would have appreciated a note about the sourcing of the eggs if applicable. I have been looking for a brunch/breakfast spot that has really good eggs -- you know, the expensive, organic, free range ones you get at the farmers market, etc.
I see that my comment about pointing out two mistakes, one of them being major, was removed. TW gets points for correcting those mistakes, but then loses even more points for not acknowledging those mistakes and for omitting my comment which obviously led to correcting those mistakes.
Even during Mr. Gibson's stint as editor, he acknowledged that mistakes are made; he and/or David Mendez would take credit/blame (depending upon how you look at it) and fix the issue. They would also take that extra step to thank the person who brought it to their attention.
The new TW obviously does not understand that acknowledging mistakes is a sign of taking responsibility and showing a willingness to grow & improve. If anyone wonders what I'm typing about, read about the El Mi Nidito dish in the print edition. If you are a person who knows anything about history in the past 20 years, you will laugh your ass off at the major mistake printed about Bill Clinton.
TW cannot edit and deny a newspaper that has already hit the streets.
What a terrific overview of Tucson eateries and some of their special meals, thanks! I'll report back in 6 months anticipating a really strict diet for the remainder of the year.
Am sitting here eating my breakfast of cold scone and diet dr. pepper and just drooling over this article. Well done, Tucson Weekly! Kudos for listing Five Points first (though personally I think that their Salmon Eggs Benedict is the brunch of choice - sex on a plate). More kudos for listing Casa Vicente, a Tucson GEM that is often overlooked on such reviews. The tapas are absolutely incredible at CV. LOVE!
