Re: “Goodbye, Frankie Cheesesteak

This is our 25th year in Tucson after immigrating from Philadelphia. Before Frankies, we were lost in a desert without a true Philly cheesesteak in sight and pretenders still asking if you wanted mayo on their faux concoctions. Here, in the Weekly, I stumbled across a notice that a cheesesteak place was opening. My thought was, "whatever." But then I saw that they were bringing in the rolls from Amoroso's back home. And, Frankie confirmed, they had cheeze whiz bubbling on the burner.

Frank was an institution who worked hard alongside his cooks and servers. He was an ambassador for the best Philadelphia has to offer. Cheesesteak, cheezewiz, wit. Sorry to hear of his passing.

Re: “Goodbye, Frankie Cheesesteak

Frankie was a true Philadelphian - gregarious, thoughtful, and open, he befriended many and most especially my late husband Newt Disney, another Phiadelphian. Newt or Diz treasured that friendship just as much as those Philly cheesesteaks wit, and hoagies which made you think you might just be in Philly with that first bite!

So sorry to hear this sad news. Frankie made the last years of my husbands life happier just as he did for so many in Tucson. Heres to Frankie!

Re: “Roll ’Em!

From out of town and we found Rollies Mexican Patio on Yelp. It was excellent! I got Tito's Burger and found it to be quite unique in how the patty was cooked. I loved the sauted onions, peppers and 'drowned cheese' effect. They even put on aome avocado for me! Excellent... Keep up the great work!

Re: “Trail Grazing

We stay at the Lodge and eat at Coyote Pause when we stay in the big city. The Lodge is a wonderful place for a weekend or more, with its own short hiking trails and close access to Tucson Mountain Park's trail system. The restaurant is a real jewel, using local ingredients in its menu items. I grew up not far from the Cat Mountain Lodge/Coyote Pause so it's a real treat to say there, eat there and to enjoy the Sonoran desert. And I remember Stan's Antique Museum back in the late 60s and early 70s. It had a sign out front advising passers-by of its free admission and another large sign at the museum exit next to a "donations" box announcing "this isn't a free museum." P. T. Barnum was right.

Re: “Meet and Greet

Yeah but the story says the website advertises Kennebecs but they are using Pure Gold.

Re: “Meet and Greet

It all has to do with the final product. FReezing them before cooking, makes it so that when we do cook them the outside to get a little crispy but not overcooked by the time this Center gets nice and warm. Come on in and give them a try.

Re: “Meet and Greet

Wish the new business and owner success, and I've never been in the food industry, but I'm curious why you prepare your kennebec fries, then freeze them for 12 hrs?

Re: “Food Fiesta

The summer festival seems to be a really interesting event and I can't wait to participate. Mexican food is one of the most unique dishes in the world with a vast variety in flavors, colors and spices. This variety can be due to the climatic, geographical and ethnic differences and heavy foreign influence. As I was learning more about the Mexican dishes, I came to know about Mole Poblano from this article https://foodlocator.menu/blog/introducing-mexican-cuisine-22 which happens to be their national dish. It has a very curious origin story. So this will be one of the dishes I'm looking forward to check out in the festival.

Re: “West Side Satori

Went to Maru a month or so after it opened. The ramen is good, yes, but everything else seems to be an afterthought. Takoyaki is not fresh, and looks like the frozen takoyaki that you can buy at Sandyi. Onigiri is also mostly premade, and has way too much rice.

If you want a better overall Japanese street food experience on the west side, head to Kukai at MSA.

Re: “Paleo-Riffic! The Hidden Grill

That's great Chump Funny 20!

Just do yourself and everyone with common sense a favour:

Leave your political opinions out of a restaurant review. (You know, your loser post name.) And if you do visit this establishment, leave your red MAGA cap and your white hood at home.

Thank you. DC

Re: “Paleo-Riffic! The Hidden Grill

The Hidden Grill is one of my top places to visit when I come into town. The food is super fresh, taste delious, and makes me feel healthy while traveling. Allison Dragony and Chris McClian are such an innovative and sweet couple. Defiantly, the kind of folks that you'll enjoy getting to know beyond their food. GO TRY THE HIDDEN GRILL, You'll be hooked for life with that first bite!

Re: “Paleo-Riffic! The Hidden Grill

The Hidden Grill is terrific!! I wish I lived closer. The food is wonderful, fresh, tasty, and the portions are a perfect size! Also, Allison Dragony hails from New Mexico, not California. She lived in LA several years after she graduated from the University of Arizona, and then made her way to Atlanta. Chris McClain went to Flagler college in St. Augustine, Florida. - GO CHECK THEM OUT, you won't be sorry!

Re: “Paleo-Riffic! The Hidden Grill

We are super lucky to live only a few block away from the Hidden Grill and were one of the 1st customers! What an amazing treat it is to have the super fresh, super yummy options Chris provides each week and it is all made to order. You can watch Chris cook your food through the dining room window. Its a small place, but you can eat in, and we usually just get a last min dinner. We are not Paleo, but you do not miss any grains when you eat here and for those who are gluten free, it's a welcome option. Highly recommend!

Re: “Pie in the Sky

This guy may be good at pizza acrobats, but he is a terrible co-owner. He is the sole reason behind the high staff turnover. He belittles, yells, and insults cooks and servers a like. He will do this in private and in front of people. He goes after people's negative reviews on Google and other platforms by calling out their intelligence. It is an understatement to say he is not a nice person.

I wish they would re-open the restaurant on Sundays! That was my only chance to go there! Loved it!
