Tale of the Tape

(6) The Hub

The Hub Jason Bartel

Neighborhood: Downtown


Cuisine: Traditional American

Yelp rating: 4 stars

Entertaining Yelp review:  "Honestly I have no idea how Tucson is a UNESCO top five food city as the city in general is on par with Duluth or Jackson, Michigan."

(11) Prep & Pastry

prep & pastry Jason Bartel

Neighborhood: Hedrick Acres


Cuisine: Breakfast and Brunch

Yelp rating: 4.5 stars

Entertaining Yelp review: "I got Jamie's michelada... DANG that blew me away from how good that was! Totally wasn't expecting that. It's basically a beer version of a bloody mary and usually when I ask for micheladas at places that aren't known for micheladas (besides mexican/latin restaurants) they don't turn out so good. OH!! they even put TAJIN on the rim! Which to me is the cherry on top to any michelada or bloody mary. So breakfast already started out with a nice bang with that drink."
