Neighborhood: University/Main Gate Square
Yelp rating: 3.5 stars
Entertaining Yelp review: "When I first came to town for work I thought this place was full of strippers. I never went that time but I thought why would they put a strip club so close to campus. I've seen much closer in other cities! Dive joint for the college kids. I mean its across the street from U of A so i wouldn't expect any less. Regardless food and service was amazing."
(13) Sausage Deli
Neighborhood: Jefferson Park
Yelp rating: 4 stars
Entertaining Yelp review: "I was back in my old college town this past weekend and it brought back many great memories from the times I had in Tucson, AZ as an undergrad. Naturally I had to revisit some of the amazing cheap eats that fueled me for all those late nights of studying...drinking. The sausage deli was a mainstay of mine averaging 3-4 sandos per week. It's since changed locations since my departure more than a decade ago but, the sandwich is still as great as ever. With my Rainbow sandals on, I headed back with great anticipation."
