Re: “Mexico, Muddled

"You call me a coward you better be prepared to come from behind that computer and say it to my face...esp. considering we're all in the same small city."

Hey coward, I'm ready to show you how much of a keyboard warrior I am in person.

@Adam - That means a lot coming from you. Believe me, I will continue until they peel me from my keyboard.

@Jacqueline & Fred, Thanks for your support!

@schpetta - I think their concept is brilliantly cool.

Anyone else notice the vegan is the most angry poster? Try getting some saturated fat, it does wonders for your mood.

Re: “Mexico, Muddled

I think she spelled it out pretty clearly, red and green are really only two options because the type of meat doesn't play much into it. If they had 6 different preparations of each meat, that would provide more options. If this was a vegetarian or vegan restaurant, why did they have meat at all?

Your service, while commendable, has NOTHING to do with whether you're a coward or not. Your reaction to a written article, however, speaks volumes about you. I choose to use a proxy name because I've had identity theft and stalking issues from people before and the last thing I need is an unbalanced person who makes physical threats showing up at my house because HE reacted poorly to something I said.

Re: “Mexico, Muddled

None of my previous comments can be disputed. She wrote a nonsense article and I called her on it. If I was too harsh she better get a new gig b/c a true writer needs thick skin.

How in the hell can you make the complaint "not enough meat options" ? How would you like it if we flipped the script and there were only 2 restaurants that served dead animals and ALL THE REST were vegan ?

I don't care if you call me fucktard, idiot, whatever...but coward is not true. First of all I'm not hiding behind a cute alias like "rancho snob or burnie mak". I stand by what I said. And it's no straw man argument to bring up prior service either. It is a fact. I did serve w/ the 3rd Battalion 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 82nd Airborne. Many men & women have lost their lives & limbs over there.

You call me a coward you better be prepared to come from behind that computer and say it to my face...esp. considering we're all in the same small city.

Re: “Noshing Around

Good food coverage week after week, smart writing, error-free. Methinks you should continue writing this column for the good of Tucson diners.

Also we have a new line of summer cocktails.

Re: “Mexico, Muddled

David James -BMak says fucktard a lot, so don't take it so personally.

I'm sorry you feel attacked here, but it is common for the locals to chastise people they think are unnecessarily rude to another person. Yes, others were rude too, but you got really personal about it. If you have issues ..just take that as me telling it to you straight.

Re: “Standout Sides

The owners of Union commenced a million dollar remodel this week at the south end of the Plaza directly across from the Windmill Inn which commences an 8 million dollar remodel of the hotel to a Homewood Suites in July, set to open October.

Anyone know what Union plans there?

Also, the new General Manager of the soon to be Homewood Suites is named Charles Brown!

Ah, yes, the Veteran Defense, second only to Godwin's Law, as the perfect straw man defense of inexcusable behavior.

Re: “Standout Sides

So, a fully-loaded burger would be around $18. That is indeed upscale. Putting "crunchy" almond slivers on top of veggies is recycled 1970's. But we live close by, so I hope they get it straightened out.

Union, which has small dish goodness, is a favorite of ours.

Re: “Standout Sides

Adding cheese to a burger is $1.

The long review and Noshing Around are two articles I check every issue. I hope you stick around.

Re: “Standout Sides

I'm not good with semi colons but I think you said adding a slice of cheese to a hamburger is $4?

Re: “Mexico, Muddled

I don't need to explain myself to hypocrites. I will just say that of course i used my real name as I am not ashamed of ANYTHING I SAY, unlike the keyboard gangsta who goes by "Burnie Mak", the real BMac is dead and was a total G. You, not so much.

"fucktard" huh, that's brilliant. I am an Iraq war veteran asshole, so shove your coward comment up your ass. I'm not the one hiding behind a fake name.

Re: “Mexico, Muddled

Wow, David James! Something must be seriously wrong with you emotionally for you to become so nasty and full of rage over a restaurant review! And I have to wonder too about those who clicked "like" under his comments.

As for the restaurant: I haven't been, but the larga in the photo does not look appetizing at all!
