Re: “Chili's

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

Re: “Cushing Street Restaurant and Bar

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.

Re: “Maynards Market and Kitchen

this has to be the best bistro in southern Arizona. Fresh sourdough that can compete with San Francisco artisan bread is definitely a plus. I had a wonderful time eating fresh muscles sauted with onions and garlic and white wine and the best part was soaking up the juice with the fresh bread. Very well trained staff and a beautiful market right next to the restaurant. We brought home some Nuttela scones and a layer cake with red velvet and chambord cream. I cannot see a single fault with this place even the ambiance is beautiful, especially when the train goes by when you are eating amazing food and enjoying wonderful company. I love this place!

Re: “Bobo's Restaurant

I've been working as a busser here for the last few months, and all I can say is... DAMN THIS FOOD IS AWESOME!!! I get a free meal twice a day and can't get sick of it! We have so many regulars it's hard for anyone else to get a seat. I have never worked in a restaurant that get's half this busy. Have you ever seen a waiting list on a tuesday at 10-30 in the morning? You will here. The omelettes are made with 4 eggs, and that's only one fifth of the whole thing. God I love it here, and I know you will too!!!

Re: “Jerry Bob’s

Went To the one on silverbell/Cortaro wow what a nice place ! You could do surgery there if needed Its Very Clean and the service was great! We had a Hispanic Lady who treated us like we were at her house as a guest she was Super nice! The food was ok but the service made it all worth it! By Ok I mean Just that it wasnt great but wasnt bad either. we will be back! and Make sure when you go the same waitress gets to serve you. She is only dark hair lady and cant miss her smile!

Re: “Mother Hubbard's Cafe

I go there for breakfast once or twice per week

$1.99 breakfast special is more than enough food;

waitress and service is outstanding.

And the coffee is great

My bill was $4.00

a lot cheaper than IHOP

I totally recommend this place

Re: “The Skybox Restaurant and Sports Bar

It was Bocatta, sad that it closed as it was very good

Re: “The Skybox Restaurant and Sports Bar

No review, does anyone remember what this place was originally called. It was a almost fine dining restaurant with a intimate bar. I was a regular at Happy Hour in 94-95. Which probably explains why I can't remember the name.

Re: “Bubby's Chicago Style

I truly enjoyed the ‘Bubby’s Chicago Style’ dining experience because the food is simply yummy! My youngest boy and his friends frequent the place, and each said I should try the Chicago dog… On my first visit, I tried their Chicago dog and was impressed. Not because I’ve been to the East coast and know everything, but because it pleased my taste buds, and so much that I ordered a second. I’ve returned to enjoy other menu items and found the charbroiled taste that comes with their burgers or chicken salad to be perfect!

The staff appears to be neighborhood youth with a hint of shyness but eager and responsive. Bubby’s Chicago Style provides the three basic ingredients for success: Great food, great service and respect for their customers.

Re: “The Onyx Room

My wife and I had a VERY positive experience at the Onyx Room a few weeks back. The KJ's (Kevin & Sharon) were outstanding and the music quality was the BEST! We would recommend it to all that enjoy good Karaoke and great surroundings.

Re: “Firebirds Wood Fired Grill

What could be a reasonable restaurant is totally ruined by this chain's ridiculous overuse of salt. Every single menu item we've tried has been saturated with salt. In fact, the last time we went my lips felt parched from all the salt. I'm not kidding! We told the manager yet all he did was essentially deny the obvious fact of how they prepare their food. His loss because we're now done with Firebirds.

We guarantee you'll be blow away by Firebird's total overuse of salt. Think we're exaggerating? Find out for yourself, if you dare.

Re: “Dry River Company

One of the best thin crust pizzas in town made with hand-pulled mozzarella! Had their yummy chicken parm dinner the other night (homemade pasta noodles) and I could not finish it--too much food. This is rare for me.

Overall, the food has been great and there is a good selection for wine and beer, although I admit having a weakness for the PBR. Two patio seating areas, one for dining side, one for bar. Bar patio is a good option if you want to be a little rowdy at happy hour or if you smoke.

Keep up the good work DRC!

Re: “Jerry Bob’s

Just came back from eating breakfast here this morning. I suppose it was better than Denny's but that's not saying a whole lot. Anyhow. I took a chance on the biscuits with white gravy. Verdict? Very, very bland gravy over soggy, under cooked biscuits. Unfortunately these greasy spoons are starting to pop up all over filling up otherwise good real estate space. Yeah! Tucson needs more Jerry Bob's like it needs more subpar Mexican restaurants, pawn shops, pay day cash advance stores, smoke shops, and graffiti riddled neighborhoods, right?

So I ask. With restaurants like Jerry Bob's popping up all over, is this a testament that Tucsonians are content with eating at second and third rate restaurants?

Re: “Jerry Bob’s

They basically serve truck stop food. Actually it's not all that bad, unless you care about eating healthy that is. A heap of food for not too much. Works for some I suppose.

Re: “Native Grill & Wings

Total rip-off. Had been there a few times. Each time I was disappointed, which makes you wonder why I came back after my first rip-off experience there. The last time I went (which will remain the last time) I ordered a burger with curly fries. The burger was alright, however the curly fries tasted stale and microwaved. I didn't bother saying anything to the waitress considering she didn't cook the food. However, she was friendly. But that won't make up for the crap food they serve.

Re: “Native Grill & Wings

I like this place for watching sports events, and the food isn't bad... The advice I'd give however, is to make sure you check what they bill to your credit card.. Twice now the amount that they tried to charge to my credit card was higher than the amount of my total bill, including the tax... The first time, when I asked where the extra few dollars came from after they brought me the charge slip to sign, I was told that there was a several dollar extra charge that didn't appear on my bill, because I asked for ice in my drink... I'm not kidding... On the second occasion when they overcharged me, when I asked why my credit card charge was about five dollars higher than my total bill with tax, I was told that they accidentally billed me for someone else's bill... Once I can shrug off, but twice makes me raise an eyebrow.. So although this may have been an innocent error, make sure that what Native New Yorker in Marana charges to your credit card matches your bill, before you sign the charge slip.
