It's difficult to provide clickable links in a paper copy...but it's kind of silly to not have links in an on-line version.
Just got back from lunch. The food was delicious! (Red chile beef burrito combo.) The service very friendly, and the atmosphere very pleasant. I'll be going back, for sure.
I'm headed there right now for lunch!
mrbigshotno1: that is just a stupid attitude; like cutting your nose off to spite your face. If this rag's reviews bother you so much, why do you read them and comment on them? Is it just so everyone can know how negative you are?
SonoranWinds: did you not notice the address listed right there in the review's sidebar? Is looking up an address difficult for you?
"Tucked into an ever-busy Campbell Avenue strip mall"
How about a little more detail- such as mentioning a nearby cross street, or it's x blocks north of Grant or Glenn or Fort Lowell?
Just about any place this rag touts, is pretty much a place I will avoid (especially after that last "Best of Tucson" disaster). Thanks for your service!
great place to eat! the food is awesome and customer service is awesome!!!
All I can say is "I'm hungry from reading this"
So what's that brown thing in the photo?
(Tip: captions are good.)
Tried this little spot a couple weeks ago. Went for breakfast a little later on a Saturday. Got the burrito from the under $5 menu, which I only finished half of. Boyfriend was a little sad that they do not offer any sort of breakfast that included pancakes and eggs & bacon. Its kind of either/or. For example, Good Egg has a dish for $8 or $9 that includes two eggs bacon or sausage and pancakes. Ala carte was like $11. Everything was very tasty and we loved the jalapeno bacon. Service was friendly. I love trying new LOCAL places, and we will be sure to return next time bf and I have a sleepover on the east side (I live way way west)!
@Sonoran Winds - yikes! Good catch. No, I meant Coronet. My caffeine titer must have been low.
I definitely share your sentiment. I and a friend waited until the day after the Grand Re-Opening of the Rincon Market to make our first visit in over a year. The food is just as good as it was before the fire. It's great to have the Rincon Market back.
I've been there a number of times now, and I heartily concur with the review, especially with regards to the breakfast items. Baja Cafe has quickly become one of my favorite places for breakfast. One of these days I will stop by and check out the lunch menu.
Pollo Feliz makes me crap myself
@SalMinella - you reference Cadence in your comments about Coronet. Mistake or are you trying to make a comparison with the place so-named on Broadway (which is student housing)?
We had Sunday brunch there a few weeks back. We were patient and got a nice table inside after a few minutes. The food (and specialty drinks) were all delicious, and while it wasn't cheap, it wasn't overpriced! People in the Old Pueblo are spoiled! If you want great new restaurants, you're gonna have to be at least slightly adventurous and try something new, and be ready to pay for something that's a cut above. Oh, and try the muffins. They were delicious!
Pollo Feliz finally opened at Speeday and columbus at the same building Taco Juans and Whataburger was at. They had signs up for almost a year but just opened this past week.
This review was pretty much dead-on. Tried the Coronet a few weeks ago - we sat on the patio (it was still cool enough in the evenings to enjoy the patio ambiance) - and though we CHOSE the patio, we pretty much had to sit there because all of the inside seats were taken by groups of people who were there when we got there, still there when we left, and appeared not to be eating. Though we were the only patio seat when we got there, the service was not good - it took more than 15 minutes between wine order and wine delivery. The food WAS good but we noted the very limited and eclectic menu. It would serve the owners well to add some traditional entrees. And we noted that the food was also very pricey for what we got - the cost for two people neared $100 (appetizers, entrees, 2 glasses of wine). Our final observation of the evening was that the Cadence does not take American Express - we conveyed to the owner, who approached us and asked us about our dining experience (way to go!) that this probably would affect our return. For the prices they charge, they should accept AMEX - I am certain that we aren't the only household in Tucson that pays as many bills as possible with AMEX due to their generous "points redeeming" policy.
A week after our experience we conveyed our thoughts to some neighbors and they strongly encouraged us to return to the Cadence to try their "amazing brunch" and we will do so. We aren't ready to write this place off yet, and figure that we just caught them on a night too soon after their opening, when they were still trying to figure things out.
Unfortunately, there is practically nothing of the foods you described that make me want to check the place out.
Great writing !! Very impressed
