Re: “The Skybox Restaurant and Sports Bar

Went a few weeks ago to check out 80's and Gentleman and thought it was pretty damn good! The band was tight and the atmosphere was fun. There seemd to be a mixed crowd of all ages and somewhat of a small cult following with their 80's dress theme going on. The band broke out some songs I really hadn't heard in a long time and it was apparent they have it together. As a bonus, I was able to take my drink outside with me to a burn a smoke. Can't comment on the food but the drinks seemed to come without any noticeable problems so all in all, I had a fun night and will definately go again.

Re: “Acacia Real Food and Cocktails

A quality operation all the way around. The type of restaurant you would expect to find in an upscale community. The room is quiet and attractively decorated. Service is professional, no gaps and no imitation striving to be current. The food is well prepared and well presented. I would not classify it as a destination, but it is well worthwhile.

Re: “Bai Thong

How can you trust the opinions of someone who says "there are very few good places to eat in Tucson"? I can name dozens off the top of my head, and I would include Bai Thong among them. As an immigrant from the Bay Area, my standards for Thai food are pretty high, and Bai Thong is the only Thai place here I can abide (although I've never tried Thai China Siam on Oracle). Bai Thong isn't spectacularly good but I'm always happy with what I get--e.g. the shrimp with pineapple (somewhere around #6 on the entrees), the smoked/dried beef appetizer (whatever it's called)--and the Thai tea ice cream is great.

Re: “Tony's Italian Deli

Went there for their Valentine's Special Dinner - amazing!
The food is very good and the portions are huge. The cramped space is balanced by friendly service & a neighborly effort to please.

Re: “Bentley's House of Coffee and Tea

Bentley's has excellent soups and other fare, as well as great coffee drinks. The atmosphere is comfortable and airy. The staff has a complete list of all menu ingredients so for vegans or gluten intolerant/dairy intolerant diners this is an excellent place to eat. Be aware that while there is WiFi, it is cut during the lunch rush so they can accommodate their lunch crowd. People tend to use Bentley's as an office, which can make finding a table problematic. Clients should be sensitive to the owner's business needs and free up tables when necessary. This is a great place for desserts as well - overall high food quality, everything made fresh. Highly recommended!!!

Re: “AliBaba Persian and Mediterranean Restaurant

Great Persian food, especially since I didn't expect to see one in Tucson! I plan to go there next time I'm in Tucson. Persian food, in my opinion, is better than Greek or Indian (although I do love Indian food). Not spicy but very flavorful is prepared properly.

I just wish the atmosphere was nicer.

Re: “Bread and Butter Café

The food is fast, consistent and good. As a friend from East Europe said, "It is a coffee shop just like in American movies."

Re: “Meet Rack

Great burgers and wild named drinks. Juke box and pool table. Ping pong on the patio. It's home of the aunt eater and God. A Tucson classic.

Re: “Boston's The Gourmet Pizza Restaurant and Sports Bar

I don't know what the previous two commenters ate, but this place is actually pretty good. The pizza is flavorful, kind of a wheaty/honey crust that I enjoy. We've taken friends here also and they've always liked it. Service is fast and friendly, too. I guess the commenter above owes me $5, because I can honestly look him in the eye and tell him I enjoy Boston's!

Re: “Fleming's Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar

Very good food and service, but bring your wallet!! Fleming's is chain but don't let that turn you off. While their Tucson location isn't their best it's still real good! Serious food for those who don't mind spending the bucks. This place is a notch or two above both Sullivan's and Mc Mahon's. For sure, Fleming's is a snob's paradise.
