This place is under new management and is now a great place to visit. The owner and his wife are very friendly and make you feel right at home. The Mexican menue is typical, but the quality of the food is way above average. The pozole, which is available only a couple of days a week can't be surpassed. It has to be the best in the Tucson area and if you are lucky enough to be there when they have it, you're in for a real treat. The chef really knows how to cook terrific Mexican food that is fresh and delicious. The second time we went we had the enchaladas and the tamales and we were not the least bit disappointed. Everything was moist and flavorful and could'nt have been better. If you happen to be driving south on Nogales Highway, don't pass up the opportunity to enjoy this great family run bar and grill, or better yet, set it as your destination and plan a trip to eat there as soon as you can. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
Nothing special. Older men tottering around getting "turned on." Wish I'd stayed home.
New management and maybe chefs. Not as good as in the past.
These places could use a good scrubbing, but must be ok with
the health department. Have been to Luke's on Ft Lowell as well
as the one on Grant. Big difference in the amount of meat put onto
the sandwiches. Ft. Lowell site knows how to load up the bun,
much more stingy at the Grant location. The Italian Beef is
This place is phenomenal. I love everything about it. For those naysayers.. Good, that means I will always be able to get a table there.
Papa Locos is sooooo goood. Actually you can grab a six pack of beer next door and bring it in to the restaurant. Alot cheaper than paying $4-5 for a beer at other places.
We visited this restaurant with a large group of people and our waitress was wonderful. She managed to get all our orders correct and had a wonderful smile the entire time. Everyone enjoyed the food, this place is great can't wait to visit it again!
I go to the Guadalajara Grill West
at Least 2 times per month for Happy Hour
Great Place to Chill; Beer and Margarita's are great.
Fresh Chips and Salsa; The Owner Emma is very customer service oriented
and plus she is easy on the eyes.
The bartenders Ramon and Christina are great.
I give this place a 10.
The free tango lessons at Cafe Vincente were the greatest one on one dancing instructions I have ever witnessed. Superb is the only word we can use to describe the combined experience of authentic Tango Argentina lessons taught by Ms. Forde, her attention to individual requests and her professional style. Along with the great food and beverages our evening was nothing short of magnificent.
Oh my gosh. Blah-anchi's. Crap-anchi's. No, really. My husband had the meatball sandwich and I have the lasagna. Yuk! So flavorless and blah. We could be wrong but from the looks of their pizzas, we suspect they are on par with what you might get at a school cafeteria.
Me & my ol' lady went to the Monterey Court Cafe for breakfast on a Saturday morning and we both decided to get the Monterey Breakfast (burrito), mine served w/ the seasonal fruit and her's w/ the southwest potatoes. What a great choice we made, everything in this burrito seemed to compliment each other; plus the pico de gallo on the side was beyond fresh. It may seem expensive @ $7.95 but believe me, I was convinced that when I saw the size of this thing that I would be taking some of it home. That didn't happen. It was so good that my gluttonous side kicked in & I devoured the monsterous sized thing. Delicious food, great service & a very casual atmosphere. We will be returning in the near future to try some of the other delectable sounding items on the menu. Highly recommended!
The menu items are really good. I wouldn't recommend the buffet though.
Run of the mill food, overcrowded,barely fair to poor service, decent prices.
This is my neighborhood mexican joint and I go here at least 3 times a week. It never disappoints. A favorite is the bacon, egg and bean burrito without cheese or potatoes but I love the carnitas, carne asada, papas tacos, ceviche. You name it. You can ask for substitutions in all your burritos. I went on a burrito tour of a mile wide area and this is the BEST. I love their spicy salsa.
yes last time i went staff was unfriendly
but breakfast for me and wife was $8.00
best deal in town
Absolutely phenomenal place to go hang out and eat a pie or two. (And this is coming from an East Coast transplant pizza snob) Love the italian pie, and the pepperoni pizza, while a generic choice, is the best pepperoni pizza I have ever eaten in AZ.
The beer is ice cold too, and they have sports on the flat screen.
Why wait for an hour to get into GG, when this place is right next store?
If I could give this restaurant zero stars I would. I've been to this restaurant four times with others who are extremely fond of it, but I find the food tastes bad and looks bad too. In addition, I would ask them how they prepare a dish before you rate this as healthy food. My last meal I had them prepare the tofu/broccoli dish with a Mongolian sauce. The tofu was overcooked and had a strange taste, the sauce had the consistency of water, the broccoli wasn't even warm so it was basically raw in terms of crunchiness. When I asked them how it was prepared, I was told that the "tofu is deep fried before it is added to the dish." Deep fried tofu in a sauteed vegetable dish is not healthy, obviously. I don't understand why this restaurant gets a great rating every year and why they claim to be healthy Chinese food. If you want something much better and healthy, try Asian Bistro at Ft. Lowell and Campbell. The Mongolian Tofu is AWESOME, as is the rice noodles and vegetables dish with a name that escapes me.
Unfortunately this restaurant has closed.
Excellent phos and other Vietnamese foods. Fast and friendly service as well. I always try to eat at Halong Bay whenever in Tucson.
This is our second review - see 2011 review. Service continues to be a major issue at Opa. I asked twice for a drink refill. Put it this way. I ended up leaving my seat and walking over the beverage fountain to refill my glass myself. Awful! The free humus they give you remains very band too. But for five bucks the gyros during lunch are a deal. But don't add fries or a salad b/c you won't need all that extra food. Plus your five dollar meal will turn into an eight or nine dollar lunch.
