Always a great place to eat if you are willing to spend the cash (menu is expensive but made fresh). Great wine list and great (but small) selection of dishes. The appetizers are really good too. Would not recommend the veal because of recent investigations that indicate the use of ham instead of veal.
Great pizza and great beer, however, the service is sometimes scant, understaffed, and takes a long time to get food and refills.
We had several extremely fascinating ladies attend this fun Spring Miniature show to launch the summer in Tucson!
A blast was had by all, the stories that Mary told about the advertising and art scene in New York and Manhattan had us laughing!! A very good thing.
Diana, as usual, is a completely lovely, beautiful woman and fabulous, generous and talented artist. The tremendous team working with her created a successful event.
The food is awesome, tasty, and big variety. Salad bar is so fresh and lots of organic items to choose from. All of that for around $10. Atmosphere is A+ too.
Previously I failed to mention the wonderful service. Both friendly and professional, the service staff struck that perfect balance between the feeling of being stalked on one hand to the sensation of being neglected and abandoned on the other. Nicely done!
Eaten here once; will again. Rundown:
*Specialty drinks overpriced
*Slightly overpriced overall, but justifiable
Eaten here twice. Rundown:
*Nicely rounded beer selection
*Relaxed yet refined atmosphere
*Med-Lg sized portions
*Balanced flavors in all dishes had (fish burrito, salmon salad w/pasta)
*Need to stay open later (suggestion: hire a manager to keep it open later during school to bring in some financial aid :) )
*Deserts, though visually appealing were ho-hum
Such a fun little restaurant! You would never expect how nice it is from the outside. Service was friendly and probably the best sushi I've had in Tucson so far.
Tasty and affordable, but never ask them to make something that is not strictly on the menu, like put potatoes into a breakfast burrito. They give you nasty looks and cook it the way they want to, i.e. potatoes were served on the side.
Plesant, upscale atmosphere, reasonable prices and good music on weekends. A bit too much fried food and I am not eating anything with green lips (mussels.) The salads are boring lettuce and black olives out of a can. This restaurant can do better than that! Ric's is for diners who want to be able to have a conversation and not have to shout over the music. The night I was there Cool Breeze was playing and the cozy atmosphere was just right while rain poured down outside. Ric's appears to be a popular neighborhood spot and no doubt many regulars are at home here.
Waiters rush diners by bring the check before asked. I had to tell the waiter I was not finished and wanted to order hot tea. Ric's can do better than this too!
I will go back and avoid the salads, fried food and waiters eager to have diners depart.
The service is usually good, the food is a bit expensive but served in large portions. The chili is really good, but the ice cream is definitely what stands out! You have to go to Austin's at least once, if only to try the amazing ice cream.
The portions are very big, and usually worth the price! The wait staff is well trained, and generally decent and attentive, plus the desserts are great. There are also a lot of options to choose from if you're a picky eater (like I am).
I concur on the lunch buffet - truly outstanding! The whole menu is budget priced without compromise in quality. The staff are a bit surly but,nevertheless, attentive. You must check it out if you like Indian fare.
Reasonably priced and it's usually a challenge to clean your plate as the portions are very generous. I like that you can have breakfast at dinner if you don't want as heavy a meal.
Yum they have a nice variety of sauces and you can watch any game that's on! Wings are a little small but still good and they have great food deals plus a huge list of beers. Just wish there was a more central location!
Outstanding. Be sure to try the Ethiopian tea - cold or hot - depending on the season. Great vegetarian and meat options. Perfect for a group of friends or family. Order different dishes and eat communally.
I like the concept of a buffet--I can see the food and select that of it I wish. Golden Corral has better quality food than Hometown Buffet (which I'm convinced uses instant mashed potatoes.)
On occasion, food items aren't labeled. But my chief disappointment is that over recent months, Golden Corral only puts out thighs and legs in the fried chicken bin. One used to be able to also get wings and breasts--I guess using only dark meat saves them money, but unfortunately I only like white-meat chicken.
Lastly, it would be nice if one could serve one's self with respect to the beverages (which Hometown Buffet offers) instead of having to rely on a waitperson to refill a drink.
Been a while since I saw Tucson from A Mountain -- lots of memories there. Glad it's clean up and somewhat gang free... Hope it stays that way. Nice place to remind us why we live here...
Want a quiet place to get lost? Want to go for a walk? Run an outdoor track? Run and indoor track. Watch some GREAT inspired little leaguers have a blast? Take your dog for a (confined) run? Try great snack bar food at the SCLL Snack bar? I love this park -- it's eastside -- it clean (usually -- I pick up trash when I walk) and the people are nice. Tennis courts are nice -- basketball indoors -- lotsa desert to go pray for a while... See you there!
It's easy to forget you're in the desert at the Tucson Botanical Gardens. Also the best place in town to get gardening ideas and inspiration. I especially dig the historic photos of the Porter family that owned the property and built many of the existing buildings in the 1920s and 1930s
