Mays went downhill starting with that so-called appetizing photo that accompanied the review in the Weekly. The photo of the eggs benedict above is a close second for most unappetizing food photo.
The Chicken and Waffles hatred isn't hatred so much as it's pure sensibility. If you eat that stuff to start with your judgment is seriously impaired. The larger problem is one's judgment is clearly obvious around one's waist and rear.
Everybody got that?
Back to hating.
no but Alvernon dead ended there,
Penca is very active on Facebook. They post photos of their dishes daily.
This sounds like another place to avoid, featuring mediocre food and plenty of it, just like all other American chain restaurants.
"...opened in 1980, back when the intersection of Fort Lowell Road and Alvernon Way was on the outskirts of town."
This was not "on the outskirts of town". Writer obviously did not live in Tucson in 1980.
Sounds like Penca - a mexican restaurant. It opened a few weeks ago and looks nice but I've yet to try it.
Hi guys... We just noticed something that looks new on E Broadway downtown (right next to O2 fitness, so 188 E Broadway or something like that) that looks like a bar or restaurant... Didn't have time to stop, but do yo uknow what it is?
@rconnelly, The name is Prickly Pops. You can find us on facebook. Thanks for asking. If you come by this the St. Phillips market this Sunday your first Prickly Pop is on the house. Just stop by and say howdy. We also make a mean prickly pear margarita mix.
@Local Yokel... oh i hope not
BIANCHI'S has GREAT Italian food; if you don't know where they're located, they are on the NE corner of Speedway and Silverbell. While it's way out of the way for most Tucsonans, it's well worth the drive. TANIA'S on Grande has been around for decades and they have a large menu; the food is delicious and they have some cold items to go as well. WINGS AND RICE located on the SE corner of Pima and Craycroft has great wings and a variety of sauces; their fried rice/hibachi rice is very good and a good twist on fried rice. VITELLO's in Catalina, AZ has great Italian food; I love their marinara sauce, Chicken Pinocchio, pizza, etc. HOGIE HOUSE has been around for decades and they have the best subs (on Mondays, 9" sandwiches are only $4.99, so they're $3.00 off). There are so many places to mention, so when I think of more, I'll post them.
Las Margaritas (Oracle and Grant locations) and El Doradito (on S. Park Ave.) have GREAT Carne Seca; El Doradito calls it 'Machaca,' but it's Carne Seca and it's SO yummy! I don't like El Charro; it's SO overrated.
dry river = gone?
The clam chowder at Trident is unbelievable. By far the best in Tucson, and rivals and beats many I have had right on bodies of water.
Aha Dan!!! I thought it was him because it was listed under his top 5...now I get it!!! Yup! Free maduros for life!!! Now, thanks to your mention in this article, I've created new topping options, a spicy nutella sauce, or honey and powdered sugar!!!!! Come on by!
@CP - thought you'd never ask.. Viro's..
Luck Wishbone garlic toast? Are you kidding??
Good information. Thank you.
While I do love almost everything on The Cup menu, I prefer the Tofu Scramble at Blue Willow, preferably on the patio, and I agree with Susan that Mother Hubbard's Green Corn Waffle w/ green chilies is a quintessential Tucson breakfast. Speaking of breakfasts, I also love Ghini's Eggs Provencale, and I would really miss Adventure Coffee's Full Moon Blend.
Other favorites: the chocolate Babka and sandwiches at Beyond Bread, anything on Feast's ever changing menus, especially the chocolate truffle cookies, and my dogs and I can't let a weekend go by without a stop at Coffee Times drive through for Chai Tea Latte and dog biscuits...they are such nice people.
lingo what is the name of your company?
