Located near Arizona University in downtown. Nice and original decor, great friday night ambiance. Menu is limited but food is great, excellent service, good value for your money.

Because they are located near Centennial Hall, we've gone to Wilko twice before concerts. Never again. The super nice wait staff can't make up for a very slow and very mediocre kitchen. French fries arrived cold after a 35 minute wait.

My husband and I were seated promptly but after that the service was slow which was concerning because the place was pretty empty. I started with the salmon cakes and they were tasty. I then had the jerk chicken sandwich and it was underseasoned and dry. I asked for some more mayo and that helped slightly. My fries were lukewarm.... More

It’s been two years since our last review of this gem near the Main Gate of UofA. And once again, it is noteworthy to reiterate how good this place is. The food is superb - eclectic menu, perfectly cooked (and accommodating your special requests!). The items are full of flavor, tasty! OMG, you have to get the Truffle Fries. WILKO... More

We have eaten here twice when attending functions near the University's Main Gate. They have a good selection of sandwiches, salads and main course entrees. This visit I had a BLT with avocado on sour dough. My friend had a brie and sliced apple sandwich on a roll. We both had fries. The food was delicious. Service was speedy. They... More

Creative menu choices. We had the beets and blue appetizer and the roasted Brussels in balsamic reduction. Both appetizers were huge, but not in a good way. Too much product. Same with side salads. Dessert was a real treat, layers of flavor in a plain cheesecake. Staff was polite and helpful, but painfully slow. Did not check back with us... More

This restaurant is cavernous and warm with a big open Kitchen. They mix nice cocktails and the atmosphere is good for small or large groups. We had the specials and they were all delicious. Brussel sprouts, Salmon cakes, 3 different salads and Pizza and Pasta and a burger. Everything was fresh hot and delicious. This really is a something for... More

There are myriad restaurants on University Boulevard, just beyond the University of Arizona west entrance, but this has become our "go to" eatery there because of the food quality and the usually above-average service. Our most recent visit occurred on a Saturday afternoon when my husband and I went there with a friend for a late lunch. Only a few... More

We decided to try Wilko after a lecture at U of A this evening. We were seated promptly even without a reservation, and all the staff were friendly. Their draft beer selection is limited but included Dragoon IPA, and the wine options were varied and unusual. Walk has a full bar with a very wide selection of all kinds of... More

We stopped in after a lecture at Centennial Hall, and about 50 people must have done the same thing. All of the servers were patient and upbeat, and the food was good despite the crush. We have always loved the burgers and pizza.
