Tale of the Tape:
(1) El Charro
Neighborhood: Downtown (also Oro Valley and Ventana)
Yelp rating: 3.5 stars
Entertaining Yelp review: "The chicken is well marinated so the taste is deep in the chicken and the meat isn't hard or dry, unlike chicken when not marinated enough."
(16) Vero Amore
Neighborhood: Old Fort Lowell (also Dove Mountain)
Cuisine: Pizza, Italian
Yelp rating: 4 stars
Entertaining Yelp review: "Our waitress, who was also the bartender, has a very loud, bellowing voice that can drown out a concert. When not taking our order, she would laugh, talk and carry on with her bar customers, often yelling from one end of the bar to the other. Every head in the restaurant turned and looked at her whenever she bellowed. I could not hear my partner across the table, but I could hear that waitress."
