This place has a great deal of potential and is pretty damn good as is. There are times, however, where their BBQ lacks the flavor punch that it is capable of.
As a bar, this place is 5 stars for sure!
left out a word, should have said ribs are very meaty and not too fatty
very meaty ribs with good flavor and too much fat.
can't understand the other reviews, awful food ... very oily because too much food is being cooked in pans and the pan is not hot enough. My wife and I were both ill after our meals here. this is a common theme in their Yelp reviews. We should have listened to those warnings.
Good to see the Hog Pit getting some good reviews, this place has great BBQ. I've had the brisket and pulled pork sandwiches, the ribs, and also the chicken. The meats are always tender and juicy, the rub they put on the slabs is great, as are the 3 homemade sauces (mild, med, hot). Sides are excellent too - slaw, cornbread, very tasty beans. Owners are very friendly, good selection of beers, plus sweet tea. Nice place, the pit master knows his stuff, check it out!
So good! Nightlife used to be kind of lame until they opened the Hot Pig. It's rockin!
Our family had a birthday dinner here thursday May 23rd. Celebrating many blessings.
The food was outrageous.. delicious and prepared with a thoughtful hand. I never knew
you could prepare shrimp in so many ways.. I really appreciated the clean surroundings.
We are done with Chili's. It has lost its appeal from a time when service was prompt and the food was hot. Our server apologized from not having the food we ordered (they were out of stock) to having to wait for them to find green peppers for our fajita, then not bringing any out. Rice and broccili cold, steak not even close to being the right temperature. It wasn't even busy, so running out of food, slow apologetic service, and undercooked cold food is inexcusable. Chili's best days are very much behind them
Now closed according to the AZDS:
Went here for dinner after a show and after we paid our bill we were asked to leave becuase they had a reservaton for our table even though there were open tables. we told the hostess we were staying for the jazz and she left. a few minutes later, the owner came to our table and asked if the hostess explained that the table was needed for reservations (we made reservations too). when we asked about the open tables, she said that we have overstayed our reservation and kept reminding us what time our reservations were for. For 3 of us, the bill, with tip, came to $170 so it wasnt like we dropped only $10. As we were rising from the table, the owner continued to berate us about overstaying our welcome and insisted that we "need to understand" that you can't stay for jazz at 7:30 for a 4:30 reservation. My friend said she didn't need to understand anything becuase she would not be returning and shockingly, the owner said good, don't come back. We were so embarrased to be asked to leave a restaurant. we are 3 professional women who went after the show at the TCC so it wasn't like we were college kids acting rowdy. The owner actually followed us out into the street continuing to explain her reason for asking us to leave. The way the owner should have acted was to explain to us that they had reservations waiting and offer to move us to the bar and even offer to buy a drink for our troubles (although we would have declined a free drink becuase we had already had 2 glasses with dinner). I am simply amazed that the owner and hostess asked us to leave instead of offering to relocate us. I will never return and I will make sure to spread the word to avoid this place.
The smallest frog legs i have seen they had to be the front legs
Excellent food, Tucson best breakfasts. Don't miss the chiliquilas. Dinners are also tasty and varied. Even outside tables. Best on the east side of town.
Mediocre at best. I've tried it several times over many years, never a good meal. Always expensive and lousy service.
Best in Tucson and perhaps Arizona. Prices are good, portions are large and the food is excellent.
Food has taken quite a decline. Very disappointing.
Food is no longer fresh and steaks are not longer premium grade.
Great place for a steak!!! Fabulous food & atmosphere with live music on the weekends.
Worst steak I have ever had in a restaurant. Supposedly prime meat? You can do better at Costco. Don't know where they get their meat. At least they took the 36$ price off the tab. Service was actually good. Decor is a bit gauche, especially for Tucson, which isn't impressed by ostentation.
La Cocina has great food whether you want a nibble or a meal. La Cocina is in the courtyard of the beautiful Old Town Artisans of Presidio Barrio. La Cocina has a great assortment of live music. What else could there be?!
My favorite restaurant in Tucson! Every dish I've had there has been amazing. Lots of vegetarian and vegan options too!
