Tale of the Tape

(1) Mi Nidito

mi nidito Jason Bartel

Neighborhood: South Tucson


Cuisine: Mexican

Yelp rating: 4 stars

Entertaining Yelp review:  "I ordered El Presidente as I decided that I'd eat my way to the top. The name El Presidente originated when President Bill Clinton came here and ordered to sample all - he was not a skinny lad back then. No disrespect, Mr. President!"

(16) Wild Garlic Grill

Neighborhood: Mountain 1st Avenue

Yelp rating: 4 stars

Entertaining Yelp review: "Looks shabby from outside, but if you turn away you would miss the best food in Tucson. Inside it's rather intimate, could be romantic."
