Re: “Total Makeover

Thank you. Yes the food was great. It was really nice to see a positive change with Putneys.

Re: “Total Makeover

Great article, well written and informative! I mostly cling to the old days in Tucson. Back in the late '70's, Putneys, Al Smith's and the bar at Cliff Manor was a hang out of sorts for folks that worked in the restaurant/bar biz on the northwest side of town. Lotta fun, lotta booze, lotta memories. I'll visit the "new" place next time I'm in T-Town. Good luck to them!

Re: “A True Tucson Original

I worked there back in the 70's as a busboy. Loved the food especially the gigantic Cheese Crisp.

Re: “A True Tucson Original

Club 21 rules! Great food, relaxed atmosphere and decent prices. Plus, I gotta make sure that my official Club 21 monster margarita glass gets used at least a few times a year. My family and I always look forward to our visits here. Congratulations Skip! Here's to hoping that there's at least 70 more years ahead. Sincerely, DC

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.

Here's a link to what looks like a luscious menu:

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?
