Re: “East Coast Super Subs

My wife and I are from NJ and couldn't wait to try the Italian subs for dinner one night a few weeks ago. It was a big dissapointment. The rolls tasted like they were at least a day old. The cold cuts/provolone are not the best quality and sliced way too thick. The chopped, not sliced cherry peppers are soaked in way too much vinegar, to the point of drowning out the other flavors. There were no seasonings, like a dusting of oregano, and the oil seemed to be a cheap vegtable oil, not a decent olive oil. So...fuggetaboutit. Wouldn't make it in Jersey.

Re: “Beyond Bread

I do not understand this places' popularity. Like were is the meat? The sandwiches are hugh only because the bread is hugh with very little filling. And when I eat there which has only been twice in eight years, I worry about chipping a tooth.

Re: “Luke's Italian Beef

Food is ok. Prices are not. Better value and service elsewhere.

Re: “Luke's Italian Beef

I have been a fan of our local LUKE’S Chicago Hotdog for 20 years of 101 E. Fort Lowell Road (888-8066), 4444 E. Grant Road (321-9236), but I’ve never been to the Luke’s on Thornydale. Not only was the food late getting to us, my order was wrong. I approached the counter to speak with the young lady who had taken our order and explained that I simply ordered two Chicago dogs and fries (which is on their bright yellow menu) and all I’m missing is my second fries. She responded, “you got what you paid for.” I said yes I got part of my order that I paid for but not all of it. She then began to raise her voice in the crowded little place stating that she is not going to give me the fries so, I can take it or get the hell out.
McDonalds has better service than this and there are kids behind the register, this lady was clearly into her fifties and still no common sense of customer service.

Re: “La Feruta's NY Pizza Café

This _was_ La Ferlita's (Feruta's?) and it's been closed for at least four years. Now Giordano's. I liked La Ferlita's pizza better.

Re: “Luke's Italian Beef

Speedway and Ft Lowell locations are no longer in business as Luke's.

Re: “Luke's Italian Beef

Luke's Italian Beef on Alvernon was a disappointment and a waste of time and money.... the kid with the tattoos working there would rather work on his truck than wait on customers.... He acted annoyed to take our order and was rude.... The girl doing in the back doing our french fries did not even know what she was doing? I expected a lot better food and service for the price!!!!! The lobby was a mess and employees were just standing around talking..... Not going back there again! I would rather go to the one on Ft Lowell I have always had best service and hot food!!!!

Re: “Luke's Italian Beef

NASTY NASTY NASTY, This is no way close to a Chicago sandwhich, Pastrami should never be warmed up on a grill, and served burnt and dry. and for $8.00 and change, I should get at least a drink and fries. but was very disappointed on taste & price. & will never ever go there again. Who ever says this taste like a Chicago style sandwich is not from Chicago and has no clue..

Re: “Luke's Italian Beef

I've gotta say, I am disappointed in the Speedway store.

Luke's, on Alvernon, is the real deal; the old fellow there is related to the master Italian beef maestro I grew up with in Chicago. He knows his stuff; not so at the other locations which apparently are owned/run by others. Point: dryish beef sandwiches are a no-no. Italian beef has to DRIP and SOP thru the brown bag - you have to wear an apron to eat it. At $6.95 a pop, a customer should be licking their fingers after eating one, and lusting after another.

Go to the Alvernon store; I hope it still delivers.

Re: “The Daggwood Café

New owners as of March 2012.....maybe a new review is in order? I had a delicious sandwich there today. The place has been completely updated and is clean and appealing. The reggae music was refreshing! Boar's head meats.....what a tasty treat. Yay.

Re: “Luke's Italian Beef

While disappointed with Tucson restaurants overall, I do like to go to Luke's on Ft Lowell. The place is a dive and the people rough around the edges but the sandwiches are good and the fries the best I have ever tasted. Be forewarned, the new Speedway location is under different ownership and the food is not as good especially the fries they are using.

Re: “Luke's Italian Beef

Luke's on Speedway is the best! The staff is outgoing and friendly...and the owner, Jason is a real treat to look at too! Excellent food...will be back soon!

Re: “Eegees

Eegees locally formulated and mixed frozen drinks are one good reason to stay in Tucson during the summer months.

But to me, their food is a reminder of why I do not like "fast food" on generic rolls without a variety of breads availlable -- and I find their portions small for the price. I would rather pay a little more for a better and more thoughfully tastie sandwich -- and even though they are a profit center --- their fries, while good, are supplied in small insifficent portions.

The Eegees tradition of a flavor of the month shows there is some thought in formulating their frozen specialty -- I just they would get around to backberry, rasberry and a few more "tart/sweet" formulas with a little more fequency -- particularly in the summer.

Re: “Sertinos Cafe

This place changed ownership a few months ago.

Re: “Eegees

Eegees food quality has always been great! But I see the menu got a little more expensive when they changed to the newer lower case logo revamp.

Wish their sandwich of the month would be reduced at least a dollar off in price so they were a bit more competitive with that Subway $5 deal. But eegees is great!

Re: “Kool Tortas

Kool Tortas variety of sandwiches and home made tortas is a winning combination

Re: “Eegees

I just realized it has been 40 years since the first time I had an Eegee's. It's been about two weeks since the most recent. Eegee's is one of the greatest restaurant ideas in Tucson, I always get the original grinder and a Pina Colada and I will continue to do so. Gotta love the Ranch Fries, too, but the cholesterol is too much for an old fart like myself.

Re: “Jason's Deli

Jason's Deli has closed in Tucson. The franchisees have gone out of business as of May 30 2010 at both locations.
