Re: “Retooled

The food in the photograph looks damned good!! I will definitely be trying this place. As far as "new or different" goes I don't recall that claim being made in the article. So, while I enjoy my food others can complain all they want about things that don't matter.

Cheers!!! The Hamburglar

Re: “Retooled

I'm sure I'll go here eventually, but let's not pretend this is something new and different. Burgers and fish tacos? Um, how exciting?

Re: “Creole Comforts

"cut her bartending teeth by learning from her older sister who has helped open wildly successful bars and high-end speakeasies in New York and Philadelphia. After opening a popular cocktail lounge here in Tucson..."

Which bars, speakeasies and lounge?

Also, some info regarding prices would be helpful. Journalism 101.

Re: “Creole Comforts

I agree with HumanBean. The Weekly used to be the only publication in Tucson that had actual reviews instead of laudatory pap written by toadies. It would address the excellent as well as point out areas that could use improvement. Thus, it had credibility. Now it's worthless.

Re: “Creole Comforts

Good for Tiffany. Any bartenders that refers to themselves as a "mixologist" need a sharp slap in the face.

Re: “Creole Comforts

I am usually not a fan of Yelp ratings but when they are as numerous and consistently bad as the reviews SAZ gets, well, where there is smoke there must be fire. Seems like service is the main complaint, especially towards the bartenders.

I appreciate the new format that the Weekly is taking towards restaurants/food but it comes off as more of advertisement than a review. I get it, you are trying to write about the food and the personalities behind it but that does not help the readers and potential customers who are more interested in the dining experience. You cannot offer an authentic review of the experience because you have become a platform for the owners to be at their best, not at their normal. Ideally best and normal would be the same thing but anyone who has experience in the industry knows that this is usually not the case.

Where does this leave me, the potential customer? I have to go to Yelp to get reviews of the dining experience.... Thanks.

It's amazing. I've been a regular customer at the Rillito Farmer's Market.

Oh boy, sure hope the toppings include pineapple, kale and Brussel sprouts, and don't forget bbq chicken! What's this proscutto stuff anyway?

Re: “Bobo's: Anatomy of a Tradition

We were visiting a local resort and found this place on Yelp! At first we weren't sure if we wanted to try it but the steady stream of happy faces coming out of it told us we would like it.

My 90 year old mom had a huge banana pecan pancake and added chocolate chips. It was the size of a medium pizza! The friendly waitress told her if she ate the whole thing the waitress would pay for it!

Mom tried but couldn't do it. I had the most amazing Reuben Omelette. The home fries are unique and a must have.

One of the staff was having a birthday and they brought everyone a piece of birthday cake!

Great comfort food, great service and fantastic prices.

A must for UA students and resort visitors alike.

Re: “A Taco Welcome

Hey, good news! I guess the chain restaurant did not open at the 4th & University location afterall. Don't know if it is the same people, but it is now a local restaurant called the garage. Went there last night, good food and something like 12 craft beers on tap. They did a cool job on the design of the building.

Re: “Kung Fu Noodle's Not a Knock Out

Hmmmm... so I'm not sure if this is a good review or a bad review. Either way, we didn't have the same experience. We were a party of 4 and 2 of us are the adventurous types and the other couple was not. My husband ordered a Firy Wok intestines and I had the Pickled Cabbage Fish Soup and they were both phenomenal. The other couple had orange chicken and Udon noodle dish and they were both very happy as well. Our service was good and when the server had trouble with English, she called over someone else who happily translated. The inside of the place is not fancy, but I don't need fancy when the food is really good. I'd give this place 2 thumbs up.

Re: “Vegan Vibes

Every time I'm down town I hit Urban Fresh up. The service and food are amazing. Chauncey and his family are kind, cheerful, and welcoming. Best vegan restaurant in town!
Do yourself a favor and go in for their daily special and one of there housemade soups, you won't be disappointed!
