It's in the name, it's in the interior, it's in the food: it's Irish. In other words, "Molly G" is home cooking in an environment of green vinyl in booths and on tables. It's also one of the few places in Tucson where the management encourages you to smoke, in spite of the city ordinance banning smoking inside food venues, which has caused much controversy among restaurant owners. In any case, if you don't mind the characteristic smell, this is the place to get some good homemade omelets, burgers and meat loaf during breakfast and lunch hours. Inquire about the house special: Southwestern potatoes, home fries with peppers and onion, and two eggs topped with green chili sauce. Senior citizen discounts are available.
As you enter this squeaky clean fast food place, you will most likely notice that most clients seem to be sweating and gasping and not just because of the Tucson heat. The chili dogs at Pop's Chili Dogs are HOT and you'll be well advised to order a large fountain drink with your chili dogs. They are tasty, though, once you get past the initial burning sensation on your tongue. They are also very reasonably priced. Feed the entire family by ordering the Grand Slam (eight chili dogs, two large fries, four drinks). Service is very fast, even for a fast food restaurant.
Oriental screens covered with beautiful flowers, Vietnamese music, red napkins on black tables complete the decor. The young waitress, niece of the three sisters that gave the restaurant its name, is very knowledgeable about the food selections, and you may in fact need some help here choosing from 115 items on the menu. Consult her before making final decisions about chicken, beef, duck, noodle or seafood dishes. And by all means, don't leave without trying an item from the dessert menu, preferably the coconut ice cream. The bar offers a very limited wine list, but an abundance of tropical cocktails.
Seems like everyone knows everyone else here, and the cozy and fun atmosphere at this bar and grill makes it easy for you to get to know them. This is one of the favorites of the college crowd. It does get loud here, especially during Happy Hour when people have to raise their voices to be heard while the TVs are running, but that's what you might expect at a sports bar. The fare consists of burgers and sandwiches with an entree of ribs. Both domestic and imported beers abound, while the wine list is rather limited. Breakfast is served on weekends only. Two patios are available for outside dining.
According to owner Keith McNesby, the best submarine sandwiches are made on the East Coast, and the best subs on the East Coast are from Philadelphia. Be that as it may, after 40 years, Keith has finally brought his family sub shop to the West, where it is being appreciated by a mostly young college crowd. Most prominently, the menu features the Irish sub, made famous by his grandmother in Philly. Other choices include regular sandwiches, tortilla wraps, and a variety of chicken dishes.
Located next to the campus, this bar is one of the favorite hangouts for fans of the U of A sports teams. The draw here are the specialty drinks, which change daily and are available all day, not just for a few happy hours. The main fare is big-size burgers, served with a generous amount of fries, house-made potato salad or pasta salad. The menu also features sandwiches, munchies and assorted Mexican dishes. There is some apparel on display, such as t-shirts and caps with the company logo printed on them. While the beer selection is satisfying, the wine list is somewhat limited (although you may be served Dom Perignon champagne upon request). Outside seating is available on a covered patio facing busy Speedway Boulevard.
If you want to include a true Western dining experience in your trip to Tucson, come here, preferably on Tuesday, Friday or Saturday evenings, which are steak nights. If you're ready to splurge, try the porterhouse but you'd better be hungry! This is a family bar featuring TV, pool and pinball machines, with shaded seating on the patio.
Molina's Midway Restaurant-located opposite the Midway Business Park, was voted number one for two consecutive years in an Arizona Daily Star poll and is hugely popular with locals and visitors alike. Lines can be long during lunch hours, but waits aren't quite as long as it might be, because the restaurant is spacious, and turnover is rapid. Tiled floors, whitewashed walls, decorative wall paintings and assorted Mexican icons provide the correct ambiance. One of the favorites is chicken and beef fajitas, prepared with rice, beans, flour tortillas, guacamole and sour cream. The combination entrees are humungous. Mexican beer is served in bottles and there is a limited selection of Rose, Burgundy and Zinfandel wines.
This centrally located eatery is an icon of Tucson's dining scene. For 39 years, Bobo's has served breakfasts and lunches in generous portions to a devoted clientele that helps spread its fame all over town. The restaurant, a clean and well-lit place, opens its doors early morning to feed early risers, and the rush builds up until the lunch crowd descends around midday. Breakfast and lunch are served any time. Try the famous egg and meat breakfast dishes, like the slab of ham or the 6-ounce top sirloin steak, to learn what a BIG American breakfast is all about.
The reputation of Robert's eatery for wholesome, hearty lunch and breakfast fare attracts clients from all over Central Tucson; it's particularly popular among office workers, cab drivers, policemen and business executives living and working in the area, and an extremely busy place during lunch hours. There's not much decor to speak of, but it's bright and clean with an upbeat, friendly atmosphere provided by the staff and the tasty food it serves. Breakfast specials, pancakes and three egg omelets, as well as lunch specials consisting of steak, veal and homemade roast beef entrees, are all very popular here. Lunch specials change daily. Homemade bread and pies are available to go.
