A candidate business for a chef Irving intervention. so sad
I guess you didn't try their lamb meatballs...they're made with canned tomatoes.
Worth noting that they were closed for five years and they re-opened recently....Interesting to know that it sounds like nothing has changed!
Thanks. Won't waste my time driving all the way out there.
Try El Minuto downtown.
I had heard good comments about La Placita, so when I had a doctor's appointment nearby, I decided this was the perfect time to treat myself. When I arrived, several tables were occupied and the door was open. The hostess greeted me and I asked for a table for one. She said, "oh I'm sorry, we close at 2." I looked at my watch: it was not quite 2:02 p.m. I asked if she was tied to that time, since it was barely 2 pm and she said yes, there were no exception, the restaurant closes at 2 for lunch. This is not as though I showed up with a party of 8 -- I was alone, looking for a quick lunch. I hadn't read the restaurant's webpage before going and their business hours are not obvious (if posted at all) on the doors or windows.
This is not good business. I don't particularly care what the food or decor are. There are plenty of excellent Mexican restaurants in Tucson and I will give my business to those who are happy to have customers and will not refuse to serve them 1 or 2 minutes after closing in the middle of the day. No bueno, La Placita!
We went on Second Saturday night, and there were glitches. Food was OK, I would have expected something a bit more ... spectacular, given all the hype this place has received. Server messed up drink order. Not sure we'll go back with all of the other amazing choices now in this 'burg.
I've not been yet (I work a block down/east) but I'm hearing the same things - nice to have some upscale food downtown but it still needs a little work. Each time I walk by, they've always been pretty full which is great.
And now we know why...
Umi Star is closed. Ostensibly for a kitchen remodel. For a few weeks.
This review makes no sense at all.
rconnelly Mind your own business. My post had nothing to do with you though I have noticed that many of your posts are quite mean spirited. I guess my suggestion that street car money be used to help struggling business's is something you find distasteful. Have no idea what you are talking about in mentioning food trucks. Can't read?
rconnelly so you do not like my suggestion that the politicians do the right thing in helping area restaurants! Thats your problem, mind your own business!
I think the 'DB' on the bun is not only tacky, but it makes me think of a brand who's name is synonymous with 'Dog Days - Night'.
you turned this into a diatribe about downtown and the street car? Do us a favor - stay away from downtown.
Second, Google Tucson Food Trucks and you can find where the trucks are most of the time.
In looking at Yelp, its clear that they were probably referring to the Truck
being closed, not the "brick and mortar" location!
Thanks Burnie. I drove around the downtown area Saturday morning and did not spot any location for these people. Hopefully, they are still open as I did like their burgers,. Cannot believe the convoluted mess the idiots running this city have created downtown. Its no wonder businesses have closed and God forbid the dysfunctional politicians would do something that makes sense by enforcing the delay penalties with the streetcar manufacturer and using some of that money to help out the merchants. By the way, just received email from Eat a Burger that yes, they are open.
