Re: “A True Tucson Original

40+ years ago, Club 21 or the old Panchos on Grant would always be the place I would take a gal on our first date, and the #4 was usually the choice at the club.

Re: “A True Tucson Original

We moved to Tucson in 1960 and lived in a motel close to the Club. My parents started going there for dinner. Later on, in 1962, that is where they took me for my 21st birthday and I got to drink my first margarita. Still my favorite drink and Mexican food is still my favorite too. Loved the article. We live in Lakeside, Arizona now, oore would still be going to Club 21!

Re: “A True Tucson Original

Our favorite go - to Mexican Restaurant. Whenever we have out of town guests, we always bring them there for authentic Mexican food. Skip is always there and always stops by to see how the food is and if we need anything. Only complaint...there's a big gaping hole in the men's bathroom wall and lots of graffiti on stall walls.

Re: “Restaurant Redo

I love the new location and I've been twice so far. They're down the street from me, and great for a weekend lunch.

Just a note though - the Carrows building was not their original location. They originally opened on the west side of Campbell, not too far from where they are now and subsequently moved to the east side of Campbell into the big building.

Re: “Bosnian Delights

If you don't visit Ahmet & Halida's place, it's' Your Loss! The food is OUTSTANDING & one-of-a-kind for Tucson/southern Arizona. The family is as good as the food. Their story is a Real Example of Land of Opportunity! Congratulations on your anniversary & best wishes for many more years!

Re: “Bosnian Delights

This is a tremendously touching story. Thanks for introducing us to Chef Alisah's. It would have been helpful to mention menu and location. Why exclude that stuff in Chow article spotlighting this hidden gem?

Re: “Bosnian Delights

Writing a restaurant review 101: address, business hours, highs/lows, drink options. A photo of plated food helps too.

Did you actually eat there?

Re: “Bosnian Delights

Thanks for the help. I guess my eyes went past "Chef Alisah's" as a reference to the Chef, not the restaurant. My bad. Sounds like a great place.

I've been going there since it opened in 2008, and the dishes have never disappointed me. Below is the website with the menu. Check it out, go, and enjoy.

Re: “Bosnian Delights

What is the name of this restaurant? If it's in there, it's easy to miss. Address? Is there any particular dish on the menu to describe? This is a good story about these members of the community and their journey. But I will have to search to find out how to try this place. Why make it so difficult?

Re: “Food and Survival

Hi Jorgiana. I'm not sure where you received the information that college students are not eligible, but that's not entirely true. College students DO qualify, but only if they meet certain requirements. Here is a link that can help you figure out whether or not you qualify.

Re: “Food and Survival

Curious as to food assistance for college students. I just found out college students are ineligible for SNAP. Other than market on the move, and going to food banks, is there help for working college students?

Re: “Food and Survival

Spaerhawke,I totally Misread your comment, and thought you were speaking to me. It was pointed out to me that you were not speaking to me, but to the first person who commented on the article. I apologize, my bad. This is what happens when I don't drink coffee in the morning and I read comments. My apologies.
