Re: “Best Burrito

Nicos and Chipotle? What a disgrace for a city 40 minutes from mexico. Who is voting 80 year olds from the midwest and 6 year old McDonalds fans?

Re: “Best Mexican

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!

Re: “Best Burrito

Wow.. Nico's then Chipotle. Wow. My vote is for McDonald's breakfast burritos, if this is the mentality. Drunk gringos.

Re: “Best Chile Relleno

What is it about the new TW that just can't get the Clinton presidency facts correct? I mean, we all would like to forget about his time in office, but c'mon! This makes 2 for 2 with the Clinton/Mi Nidito mistakes. Shame on you TW.

Re: “Best Mexican Fast-Food/Drive-Thru

@amyquinns001 Why? Nico's is a million times better than Taco Bell. I'm writing this for future Googlers' benefit. El Potosino, which used to be a Los Betos, is my favorite Taco Shop.

Re: “Best Mariachi Band

Tucson High's website is outdated and incorrect but it is an honor to receive this recognition!

Re: “Best Sonoran Hot Dogs

do not get sonoran hotdogs from guerro canelo. their other food is great, but the dogs are terrible. they don't use the right type of classic hispanic buns that melt in your mouth and have the little sweetness. the fact that they are on this list shows me it is politically influenced and someone is on the take. if you go there try any of their other items.
i agree that BK makes amazing sonoran dogs. personally i would try any of the independent street vendors with their own food carts/trucks. i have not had a bad experience at any of them yet

Re: “Best Tortillas

Love this place. Carne Asada burrito, the tortillas, a pint of red salsa. What else do you need. Take it all home and wash it down with a Bud light.

Uh, President Bill Clinton ate at Mi Nidito in 1999, and sworn into his first term in 1993.

Re: “Best Sonoran Hot Dogs

After eating a sonoran dog at Papa Locos I can not eat one at EC. PL uses all beef dogs that are bigger so the you actually get meat with the first and last bites and the buns are to die for. EC uses those cheap little 3 meat scrap dogs. This review says in all.

Re: “Best Mexican Restaurant for Visitors

This choice is super irritating!!!! Mi Niditos is so overrated and the wait time is super ridiculous for some mediocre food. I'd rather take/send visitors to Guadalajara Grill.

Re: “Best Mexican

As much as I love Cafe Poca Cosa (its my favorite restaurant in town), I don't feel likes it's your typical Mexican Restaurant.
