Bravo, a solid profile on a Tucson tesoro!
Paco and Mom's is a New Mexican Restaurant! Not Mexican, there is a difference!
If your all going to avoid chains, then stop eating at Pita Jungle, Diablo Burger, El Charo, Sir Vesa's, Molina's, Guadalajara Grill…shall I keep going?
La Hacienda is owned by a gentleman who also owns two Mexican Restaurants in Washington where he lives part of the year and another here in Tucson where he also owns a home. He's passionate about his food and he loves both places, so sue him for sharing it in the towns he resides? He also has introduced some Yucatan dishes to his Menu, which we rarely get in the Street Taco dominated 'hipster' Downtown scene or bland Sonoran Slop scattered across our Beloved Old Pueblo. La Hacienda is neither.
La Hacienda is not just for White Hairs, it's just when you eat at a Eatery in-between Midtown and the Foothills... Guess what, It's going to be filled with Snow Birds during the Winter Months? Demographics Rita, wake the bleep up!
Finally the Agave Art... Poor Rita, lets not get PC on even Critical on Historical representation of Mexico's Proud Agave Culture in both the fermented and distilled beverages. Be it actual Mexicans that farm, harvest the crop? Oh no I can't see that while I'm eating or drinking and be a white person in the process now, can I?
We need Toxic Ranch to survive. Outside of the two Zia Records locations (though Oracle is the only one worth your time)…Tucson has Zilch!
Fair enough Dan, but the BOT has many flaws as the categories are limited and the results are limited as well... like how many toys stores do we really have in Tucson to vote for?, or bookstores?, etc…. Then how many of those stores advertise in your publication currently and in the past?and when I flip thru that issue I'm amazed at the winners and the similarites in ads through the year… I however stand my ground on the review and find it amusing that the reviewer gave props to Gio on many points that have been criticized of the place thus far on social media sites?
This review had me rolling in the isles….I mean I know advertisers get a shout out in the Best of Tucson Issue every year. In fact, you just gave a shout out to all your culinary advertisers in the Issue two weeks ago. Now we have this glorifying review that point on point tries to make amends for all the criticism you find of this Nue Taco Joint over at Social Media sites like Yelp. Props to the Homemade tortillas, but in no way is two Tacos and some chips filling enough for a meal. Maybe if I was a waif-child hipster, living on $75 a week allowance for mum and da? My tacos looked nothing like the photos in this article, in fact it was laughable how small they looked on those cold metal pizza pans. Speaking of which, by the time you get your tacos, that are ice cold just liked the over-iced, premixed drinks. I've topped a better buzz off a diet coke then their $9 premixed punch. I did like one of the tacos but would have needed it served to me sooner, on a warm plate and three or four to fill a dinner appetite. That would have totaled my tab well over $25 and I can think of many other 'less-hip' joints where I could have order for two of us for the same tab total?
I won't even go into the cluster-f*ck our waitress got our tab into when ordered our meal and fib after fib she told when she came to the table and realized she messed up two meals and forget a third? The Manager was right behind her when serving the food and none of them tried to make amends for the waitress's mistake. One action that would easily had been forgotten if they made up for it, instead we got tiny cold tacos!
Don't fool yourself Urbanites and Hipsters, there are so many other Taco eateries that have way more tasty and filling tacos in a far less hip, Target-like College Dorm Interior look?
