Re: “Second Chances: Saguaro Corners

I like it there, as well. But, only once in a while - mostly for a drink. The Quinoa Kale salad is delicious.

The prices are a dollar or two over what they should be. They use cheese sauce instead of real cheese, which has a bland flavor. The service is hit or miss and the furniture is old and/or cheap both inside and outside. (Sometimes I wonder if food/drink places that open on the East side think that we don't need or want quality surroundings. Then they wonder why they aren't making money and eventually close.)

Lastly, there are very few vegetarian options. The calabacitas are supposed to be vegetarian, but are grilled on the same flat top as the meat, which ends up in the tacos. And, I think the fried cheese curds ("Curds of Amazingness") are fried in the same oil as their fish n' chips, because that's all I tasted when I ordered them. So, it's difficult to taste the cheese... and again... it's not very vegetarian friendly.

But, it's a great place to relax with a beer and take in the beautiful scenery.

Re: “Second Chances: Saguaro Corners

Really like the place. As far as pricing, I didn't think it was that bad. Most places that serve craft beer are gouging-- with the exception of Tucson Hop Shop. Another thing I really like about this place is there are NO annoying TVs outside to ruin the atmosphere. This was the main reason I visited in the first place: to verify that they deviated from the mindless TV obsessed masses. It's true! Keep up the good work!

Re: “Second Chances: Saguaro Corners

The food and atmoshere are good, it's just that the beer is way over priced. I won't be returning.

Re: “Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad: 4 Seasons Restaurant

We love this place. The server is always very friendly and responsive and the Thai food is delicious. One really exciting thing is that you can order Thai food for breakfast. I love that I can get green curry first thing in the morning.

Re: “Let’s Be Real: Dominick’s Real Italian

I live in the area and I really wanted to like Dominicks. I've been 3 times. The food is not terrible by any means, but it's not remarkable at all. It is not homey, not particularly authentic... but I know it's still a new place and could be having growing pains. I'm not Italian, but I respect the cuisine and appreciate it when it's done right.

Tucson is becoming much, much more happening than I ever thought it could be ten years ago. Santé!

Re: “Let’s Be Real: Dominick’s Real Italian

Dominick's menu and execution is fantastic. This coming from an Italian who's lived in many big cities (since that seems to be a necessary credential in this debate).
Everyone is entitled to their opinion but let's perhaps stay on topic shall we? No need to slander the neighborhood.

Re: “Let’s Be Real: Dominick’s Real Italian

Thanks, Rita. Obviously, I mis-read Dominicks as Domino.

Blushing here.

Re: “Let’s Be Real: Dominick’s Real Italian

It's been ages since I've had a meal at any fast-food restaurant, and nothing I've read here will change my mind.

Tomorrow afternoon, I'll be heading off to my kitchen to make up one my fabulous spaghetti-with-meatball dinners.

At a tenth of the cost that fast-food restaurants charge.

Plus 200% more delicious!

Guaranteed.

Re: “Let’s Be Real: Dominick’s Real Italian

There are new restaurants opening all over the valley. I can't even keep up with the changes. Could you start a monthly update and show new name and new address, even if you don't have time to do a review on them??

Lasagna and More is opening March 1 on the NE. Great marinara!!!

Re: “Let’s Be Real: Dominick’s Real Italian

Super review. I have a new found respect for HH. Finally someone who can call a pot black. The poverty stricken neighbors who have never had a decent meal out in their lives defend this place simply because they don't know better.

Re: “Let’s Be Real: Dominick’s Real Italian

We've been going to Dominic's for years. We love the lunch special and the dinners have never left us grumbling. ( We don't care for Olive Garden. Tastes too much of Chef Boy-ar-dee. ) To each their own. I am just gob smacked at how such a lovely place got slagged. Pity. Dominic's is a grand place.

Re: “Let’s Be Real: Dominick’s Real Italian

I've never eaten there, but what I find curious is ...Why does the reviewer continue to dine at Dominicks if she thinks it's the worst place for Italian food ?? If I have ever had an awful food experience at a restaurant, I NEVER return.

I live in the area and frequent Dominick's. No relation to the owners, not even friends. But love the food! Meatballs and spaghetti ...wonderful. Fried eggplant ...wonderful.

Re: “Let’s Be Real: Dominick’s Real Italian

i am always amused when people who don't agree with the review accuse the reviewer of a 'sour connection to the people" or they "have it out for them". Nothing could be further from the truth,, In my experience the responses are from people who are friends and family or have been asked by the owners to write a response.
