well that explains that reta!
adam hasn't lived in Tucson for ages.
boring! bring back adam!
I don't patronize the Flores' establishments - they are way overrated.
The curried goat is superb.
They do have a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Zemams?id=1515869…
I have been to both Zemans and I heartily concur with the review. The food is excellent.
We stumbled upon this place. Although it can be a bit hard to find, the food is cooked fresh and the prices are super reasonable. Besides an extensive menu, they also have a $5 section. Our family of 4 usually orders about four items (each comes with rice) and it's a great feast for just about $20. Great customer service and each time I go I wonder why more people aren't there.
Coming from a Slovack/Russian backround, I was eager to see if the very positive review by the Tucson Weekly (Rita), was accurate - it was! Even though it was almost 40 miles from my house, I thoroughly enjoyed my Russian High Tea & it was worth the $15 that they charge. To justify my time & fuel consumption, I also ordered lamb dumplings ($11/lunch) & the appetizer sampler (for 2 as it was two pcs each for $13 vs one pc each for $9) to GO, My server was "Vladimir" (Carlos, from El Salvador) - polite & helpful. There was a language barrier w/the owner's mother, but Chef Natasha was delightful & possibly spoke better English than I do!
Their menu has always intrigued me, but haven't made it there yet. Thanks for letting me know to stick with beer when I do!
Ha! They did the Raymond dusty but he is still going strong. The Original Mr K's on Park, yum.
As for Mr. K's - The blame lies squarely on RICHARD YELLOT.
Richard - Stick with scamming people in real estate, the restaurant business isn't for you.
drinks here are overpriced and have no booze in them.
that's great to hear.
I will add that it's not just a gimmick, the owners are great folks who really care about the beach, the vibe, the food, the people, etc.
that was one of my minuses at one point. great minds....Burnie Mak.
"Minuses: ....; no beach"
Update to my earlier review from 2010:
My husband and I are fairly regular customers at Don's Bayou because we love the good food and pleasant chats with the owners, Don and Teresa. They're such nice people and make us feel welcome as soon as we come in the door. Lately we've been going in on weekend mornings before noon when they serve large mugs of rich coffee (freshly brewed by the cup) and beignets (kind of like a doughnut: a square of fried dough eaten hot and sprinkled with powdered sugar). I know they're adding freshly-cut fruit to their weekend morning menu, too. We haven't tried it yet but intend to do so. The weather has been so beautiful, so we've been enjoying this weekend treat on the patio overlooking the garden area and the Catalinas.
None of their food, much of it deep-fried, is particularly good for the waistline, to which we can personally attest because we can't resist! One of our favorite entree items is the shrimp po'boy. It's plenty spicy with either remoulade or shrimp cocktail sauce , and oh so good! We also love the really thinly sliced, vinegary cabbage coleslaw. The food tends to be expensive, but really fresh seafood IS expensive, even on the coast. The fresh crayfish boil is wonderful and wonderfully messy. It's not always available, so we "liked" Don's on Facebook so we'll be alerted when the high quality crayfish have shipped in. There's a beer on tap that we really like called Andy-Gator. It has a higher alcohol content than normal, and is what we were looking for in a good brew to go with our spicy meals.The only thing we didn't care for were the fries, but who needs them?
This place deserves to be supported by happy, well-fed customers!
Picky Palate, It s considered the Eastside following our rubric.
Fini's is fun, and it's generally a good value, with a caveat. Your waitress will ask if you want coleslaw or fries, etc. with your burger or other selection. She won't mention that if you take the bait, it's an extra three or four dollars (I don't recall exactly, just that it really boosted the bill for the table.)
Fini's is also a cilantro-lover's paradise, so if you are one of the many who can't stand the stuff, your options will be really limited.
Lastly, and this is a minor quibble, Fini's is in the Catalina Foothills, a straight shot up Swan to near the top. It is nowhere near the east side of town.
