Though the food is not really that good! To bad this place could be one of the hottest spots in that area. One day they might hopefully figure that out.

We stopped here on the way to our vacation home and were pleasantly surprised. We were here in off-hours (mid-afternoon), so it was quiet. The patio seating was lovely and service was perfect. Two of us had pork carnitas and one had arroz con pollo. All were really good. The carnitas portions were very large; two could share one. I... More

We visit Tucson often. This is a favorite for lunch on the way. We like locally owned places that give you a real flavor of the town and hospitality. Por Favor is great.

Hot and tasty. Judging by other reviews, part of the equation is knowing what to expect. Our service was quick, friendly and efficient. Food was hot and tasty, not gourmet or strictly authentic, but good and nice sized portions. Reasonably priced, I'd certainly be happy to go back.

Our son took the whole family here for dinner when we arrived in California for his post-Christmas wedding. There were nine of us and we received timely service. We sat outside on the patio in the evening. It was warmed by heaters and the ambiance was lovely. The food was excellent...everyone seemed pleased with their selections. I had delicious carnitas...
