I am a retired USAF Lt. Col. I am an adjunct instructor of Spanish at Pima Community College, teaching 2 or 3 classes each semester…
I love it when reviewers rave about restaurants that they eat at because someone else is paying the bill. Give us a break! Almost any restaurant would be good at the prices you quote for this place. It's not a place that the average Tucson Weekly reader can afford.
Is this a reprint from "The Onion"?
How does 2 restaurants become "various'?
Taco Giro is on 22nd STREET. In Tucson, STREETs go east/west and AVENUEs go north/south.
Being one of Tucson's best barbecue joints doesn't say much. I'm told that BrushFire BBQ is very good, but I have not tried it. Jack's BBQ has closed and what more is there? While I hate to praise anything in Phoenix, I'll take Honey Bear's BBQ any day and would love it if we had one here.
Xenophobia (or never go south of 22nd St fear) has obviously influenced this category, when only Mi Nidito has made the list from the MANY excellent Mexican food restaurants on South Fourth Avenue. Guillermos, Rigos, Michas and Crossroads are all "Old Pueblo" Mexican restaurants. El Torero, off S. 4th on 26th is another. As is the little take-out on S. 12th, Los Jarritos. I don't question the quality of Poca Cosa, but it is more a niche restaurant than a people's Mexican restaurant. El Charro, not the El Charro restaurant that I knew on Broadway many years ago, is tainted as a McMahon's chain. In the future, folks, let's get out and give some of these old favorites a try and vote them the recognition they deserve!
There won't be one who complains about the money THEY are making because WE, the taxpayers, are paying to give them a better location for their business. I'm sick of their crying.
