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!!

Re: “Retro Restaurants

Last Chance was dynamite. You could go in just before closing and get free slices and whole pizzas leftover from the evening. This was in the mid-70s as I recall. The beer was always frosty cold.

Re: “Sorely Missed

Cora's Cafe on the corner of Irvington and Old Nogales/6th - Right across from the Rodeo grounds.. Some of the best cheap breakfast I'd been raised on for special morning occasions. It was too tragic when it closed and re opened as some sort of mexican sea food place.

Re: “Meals on Wheels

does anybody know why a food truck couldn't be at sabino canyon (especially on a weekend). i think it would do a great business - lots of hungry hikers and only vending machine junk available.

Re: “Italian Style

I used to work at Da Vinci's. It was one of my first jobs. I started as a dishwasher, cooked some pizza's and years later cooked there briefly. I have a lot of great memories from that place. The Ali family was a lot of fun. The staff was like family. You really don't find places like that any more. My wife still request me to make the chicken toskonini. Thank for the memories. Love ya Cosmo. Kev

Re: “Season's Readings

Not a published writer… just had an idea, my characters are a bit two dimensional; I could use a bit of help in building the story… I also like Well Written Sensual stories… Not the usual four letter assault on the American Language. One can be just a sensual/sexual with better phrased, animated descriptions of bodily motion than what one gets in the normal porn.
As a challenge, I wrote a poem that uses NO vulgarities, no 4 letter slang, yet it's a real sexy page. Email me and I'll send the poem for your evaluation. Terry

Re: “Italian Style

When Corleones was on Mabel St. near UMC, the atmosphere was great!! The restaurant was located in a house blended with a residential area. Food was very good! A night out for dinner was fun at Corleones while a student at U of A in the 1980's.

Re: “Evolution of eegee's

The ingredients are a secret for good reason. I don't want an imitation Eegee. Yesterday I drove from Phoenix to Casa Grande (new Eegee store) to get a bucket of lemon. I often wish they would would start packaging Eegees for commercial sales in grocery stores. Oh yeah, and the bread too. Yum!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: “Hot Stuff!

um, the Salsa Ranchera and the Mexican Red Sauce are plenty hot enough. I prefer the Green Jalapeno on everything though.
