Re: “Little Café Poca Cosa

This place is amazing. The music is loud and your food is served up with love. You can taste how happy the workers are in the delicious food. Plus, they give to those in need each month. Try a basil pineapple drink and eat every bit of salad they put on your plate. Little Poca Cosa is rejuvenating and reminds me what I love about Tucson.

Re: “East Coast Super Subs

East Coast Super Subs (ECSS) produces excellent subs; there's no two ways about it.

This is where I go in Tucson for the best hot sandwiches. You'll see a ton of reviews on other aggregates like Yelp! -- but the hype really is warranted. Go here; you won't be disappointed.

The menu details a variety of subs, but highlights the top ten. The *Broadstreet Bully* and the *Jimmy McKenna* are exceptional and worthy of their #1 and #2 rankings.

However, even the sandwiches excluded from their most popular rankings are still righteous (i.e. The Philly Fanatic). The bread rolls ECSS uses on their subs really makes them special.

Re: “Bison Witches Bar and Deli

Love this place! Been going for years. Fun hot wait staff, great drink specials and huge sandwiches and bread bowl soups. The outdoor patio bar is a great plus!

Re: “Lovin' Spoonfuls Vegetarian Restaurant

I've been eating this food for years and I love it. There are simply no reasons to have animals killed to gratify a whim for good eats.

Re: “Bangkok Café

Great fast lunch...lunch menu is inexpensive and delicious...the Thai ice coffee is a pick me up in the middle of the day. Lunch includes a lightly flavored chicken-based broth with some celery in it, then some rice, some crispy eggroll...the Basil Chicken is delicious and I always use their condiments, chilis in vinegar and spicy chili sauce to make my own, of course...recommended for a quick lunch..

Re: “Arizona Inn

The Audubon Lounge has a terrace overlooking the cricket lawn, surrounded by colorful flowers. Birds are chirping in the trees. The most relaxing place unless it is more than 110 degrees outside. The prickly pear Margaritas are the best in town, on ice with salted rim, of course. The chilled leek and potato soup, Vichyssoise, is thick, flavorful with a hint of white pepper, perfect for hot weather. The quesadillas with shrimp or chicken come with three different condiments, salsa, sour cream and guacamole and the tacos are as crispy as puff pastry.
The main dining room Sunday's brunch is outstanding, as much Champagne as one wants (medium dry California Champagne is served) and the food is great, a sit down Brunch instead of buffet. Much nicer....as one concentrates on the food one is eating instead of thinking what to get next from the buffet...very civilized. Take your time and enjoy.

Re: “Acacia Real Food and Cocktails

Love Acacia! I usually sit right by the Philabaum fountain admiring the different colors in the water streaming down...just wonderful. The food is very good, Crab Louis has tender and big, succulent pieces of crab in a light dressing, delicious with a chilled Fetzer Gewurztraminer. Great place to while away a hot afternoon after shopping at St. Philip's plaze. The dining room is more private and less noisy than the Italian place opposite of Acacia...the food is what you expect when you order, no surprises, well prepared, nothing exotic, just simple and elegant. Recommended.

Re: “Café Poca Cosa

Still one of the best places in Tucson. Not as nice as it used to be in the old hotel location, the music has changed, the view is bad, and instead of flowers, plants and artifacts, it is steel, and more streamlined. However, the house margaritas are still great, the salsa freshly made, the carne asada tender and flavorful. I preferred the old lively place with the homemade dressing in wine bottles on each table...but I am glad she is still around and doing her magic in the kitchen. Suzanna showed Tucson a new form of Mexican cooking, without heavy cheeses, guacamole, and nachos; instead she cooks in the Sonoran style and that is light, flavorful, and memorable food. Thank you Suzanna!

Re: “Gandhi

After having spent a good amount of time traveling across India I would like to think of myself as picky when it comes to Indian food. I would say that the vegetarian dishes at Ghandis's are as authentic and delicious as I have had anywhere in the world. I highly recommend the Shahi Panner and the Malai Kofta. Their cream based curries are so good that my friend form Bombay said it tastes her grandma's cooking!!
**I would agree that their buffet is disappointing and not even close to on par with their dinner menu. So don't judge by the Buffet!!

Re: “Bai Thong

I am confident they have the most authentic thai food in town. Unfortunately this place all ways seems empty whenever I visit. This place makes the food at Bangkok cafe seem watered down and tasteless (which it truly is). The only place I think that can compare is Char Thai, but I have begun to prefer Bai Thong's soups (I recommend the Tom Kha Gai), curries (Try the red curry with shrimp) and even their noodle dishes. I would declare Bai Thong the most authentic Thai restaurant in town although the ambiance is not quite there.

Re: “Famous Dave's Legendary Pit Bar-B-Que

Food was excellent. Service was wonderful and I look forward to eating there again. The multiple choices of sauces is enough to please any palate. Would definitely recommend this restaurant, and look forward to eating there again!
Keep up the good work.

Re: “Lindy's on Fourth

Lindy's on Fourth is amazing. Simply put. From the wild menu with very unique named burgers, great service, to the increddibly delicious burgers. Lindy's is a great place to go for lunch, dinner, or on a day where nothing can satisfy your appetite! Lindys is the best place in Tucson to get a burger, hands down!

Re: “OPA!

Every time me and my husband come back to Tucson for a visit, Opa is on our list. The food is fantastic and the service is very personable. One of the best Greek restaurants I've ever been to.

Re: “Mama Louisa's Italian Restaurant

Been going there for 50 years. Joe's special and the sausage meat pizza, way over the top! Chef Alesi was the best, God rest his soul.

Re: “Vero Amore

Classic Neopolitan Pizza Pie, they make their own fresh mozzarella, use quality ingredients and the wood oven delivers a unique rich taste. Tucson is very lucky to have such a pizza parlor, today everywhere you look its thin crust and wood fire oven but this place actually gets it right. Plus great salads!

Re: “Dickey's Barbecue Pit

I love love love the ribs! So juicy and tender! The regular sauce is so succulent and drinkable! (They also have sweet and spicy sauces) I am always treated well at Dickey's and love to get some ice cream after my ribs. I'm glad they are in town!
