Re: “Evolution of eegee's

Richard, you will be happy to know there are now two places serving Eegees drinks in Phoenix ... we don't have to drive to Casa Grande any more!!! A Blimpie sub shop on Indian Bend and the GreatSteak at Tempe Marketplace both serve the standard trio and FOM Eegees!

Re: “Evolution of eegee's

They need to expand. People moving to California or as far as Florida miss Eegees

Re: “Italian Style

I agree with wildcatforever: CorleoneĀ“s on Mabel Streat near the university is part of my good memories from the time we lived in tucson. The house had several cozzy rooms to choose, good pasta and pizzas.

Re: “Sorely Missed

I really missed El Greco's. I ate at the one by the UofA as a kid and then in college. We had our wedding rehearsal at the Ft. Lowell location so I have many fond memories of the restaurant.

Re: “Check It Out

That really sounds like a great idea. God forbid Monsanto should enter the picture.

Re: “Calories of Concern

With all the money coming in from the Casinos, why wouldn't anyone on the Tohono rez be able to eat right if they wanted to?

Re: “Retro Restaurants

I know there isn't room to list all the old great places, but I remember going to Austin's near Broadway Village in the early '60's with my dad after UofA basketball games in the old Bear Down gym. Dad wouldn't let me try any of those other ice cream flavors, C,S & V were the only flavors of real ice cream to dad (and that was OK)
Best chocolate malts I ever had! Johnnies Fat Boy couldn't be beat! The free sopapillas for dessert at Panchos in the old Del Ray shopping center on 22nd st. were the best. I probably wouldn't care for them now but the simple hamburgers at Burger Chef on 22nd & Craycroft were a treat to a seventh grader (Mom would have killed me for riding my bike down there with my pals in 1965). The core of the building of El Molinito on 22nd is the old Burger Chef. Lotta memories, good one's of Tucson.

Re: “Retro Restaurants

Araneta's Mexico Inn--I still consider it the best Mexican restaurant in Tucson. Their huevos rancheros and chimichangas were superb--and the salsa!!!

Re: “Sorely Missed

Thank you all. Tucson was a great place to eat as well as to grow up. Don't forget the Hula Hut on South Stone for very good stakes and funny drinks, and later the Panda Bar. MJL

Re: “Sorely Missed

Its now 2013 . . . I still remember all these places and miss them so much! Living in Scottsdale now since 1998! Much has changed here in Scottsdale too since the mid-90's. Crud! I miss my early 20's! Smuggler's Inn for disco dancing during the late 80's!!! / krk

Re: “Retro Restaurants

My goodness, trip down memory lane.. raised in Tucson from 12 to 24, 1960 till 72.
Knew all these wonderful places, my favorite being Ye Olde Lantern with the appetizer tray, large red leather booths, fireplace and warm friendly staff.
My parents have long since passed but the first dinner we had when we visited Tucson before moving there on Xmas 59 was the Lantern. Lived near Coat of Arms and had rehearsal dinner at Cliff House, reception Coat of Arms. Great memories of so many others. Redwood Lodge, Vitos, Skyroom..Tucson has a proud heritiage of great eats. Thanks for the memories!!
