Great food but serious concerns about cleanliness including bugs, dirt and food bits.
Directions: NE Corner of Skyline and Campbell in Tucson, AZ.
Spending the weekend in Tucson we finally made it to a restaurant that I have been longing to go to for over a year. It is Sur Real on skyline in Tucson. We had a reservation for 9 p.m. Friday because they had 2 larger parties earlier in the evening (100 and 20).
We arrived, hostess seated us at 2 tables shoved together. The tables had been cleaned and set and my skin promptly stuck to the table. While peeling my skin off the sticky the tables shifted and there were chunks of food between the tables.
We called the waitress over and she had the bus boy clean and re-set the table. The menu at Sur Real is South American. The food was really good. They have a Churrasco grill, so you can get a choice of 6 different meats and rubs/sauces. I had the sampler with pork, beef and cuban chicken. It was very good.
We order mojitos because we are in a competition with our friends (who were dining with us) to find the best mojito in Arizona. Mine had brown, slimy carcass of mint. Sending them back we did get some with "fresh" mint which translated to only a little brown around the edges.
Any restaurant can have a bad night. Additionally another set of Tucson friends wanted to go to Sur Real with us the following day. So off we went for lunch.
Turns out the night before proves the old saying about everything looks better in the dark. The carpet was beyond filthy. You literally could not see the carpet pattern in the walkways. It was pure black. In their defense the areas under the tables were clean. You could see the pattern and there weren't any large chunks of food on the floor.
We sat down at a table and I promptly killed a dozen ants marching across the table top. Thru the meal I also managed to kill 3 of those orange/black flying bugs and a spider (thank Gawd not a tarantula!!!)
Again the food was good. Again we dodged e coli, trichinosis, salmonella, and who knows what.
Not going back. Am calling the health department.
