old owners, great menu board, great steaks gone for good – I was also one of the many thousands of people eating at Lil Abners each week for years. It was great and had a big board for a menu. But tried it in 2009 and someone had purchased it and had no written menu and only the one in a waiters head. The steaks were over priced and very poor. Stay with all the great steak resturants in Tucson. Too bad this use to be my number 1 place to eat.
Great Food, Iffy Service and Ambience – Went with a fun group of 7 for dinner. First impression...what a dive!!! Took forever for the waitress to come over. She was kinda bored and cranky. Did not like the verbal menu due to the lack of prices. But then the food came out, and it was fantastic. The rib meat fell off the bone. My steak was tender and cooked to perfection. Pintos, potatoes, and Texas toast were a nice addition. No one was quite sure what to do with the pico de gallo.
The music was a hoot...reminded me of Mom & Pop Nelson's (Willie Nelson's parents) band at the ubiquitious chili cookoffs in Texas. Yee haw!
Bad service and dirty bathrooms – This is a sad attempt at the past. The wait staff needs help and the food has gone downhill. The womens bathroom was very dirty. For the money it cost to eat there the service should be prompt with a smile. Instead we got a wave with I'll get to you and loads of excuses as why it takes sooooo long. They need menus there not just a verbal "this is what we got". Then more apologies. The steaks are thin, the ribs are burnt, and the bussers want to take your plates before you are finished. Never again. Go up the street to the Road House even if it is a chain, its alot better.
FUIMOS ESTAFADOS – Aparte de estar en un lugar lejos del centro es un establecimeinto muy descuidado, supercaro para los servicios que ofrece, bebidas caras, servicio lento y malo. Nada extarordinario aparte de los precios. No se paren en ese lugar si no se quieren sentir defraudado. Mil veces mejor el Pinnacle Peak.
Way overpriced!!! – The inside of the place is so dark it is miracle I was able to see at all! MENUS ARE NOT AVAILABLE* PRICING IS NOT VISIBLE! And for a decent meal for a party of two, you will not leave without spending $100! Not worth it! THROUGH THESE DIFFICULT TIMES* FINANCIALLY THIS IS NOT THE PLACE TO GO!!
we got there and were like what – we went there for my moms b day someone recomend it we saw the place and were like what. went in and we were like were did we come. but saw the food taste it and were like o my god its so good
Highlite of road trip – Wife, daughter and myself went Tuscon for a night. Looked at yellow-pages for steakhouses. Name sounded interesting. Drove out and found place laid-back step back in time type steakhouse. Wife and daughter little on the "ugh" side when entered doors. They are the "eat less meat" type. Upon getting a "whiff" of the fabulous steak on my platter, each of them tried a bite, ordered their own and did everything except lick the empty plate when they finished. We are planning to fly from Nashvile to Phoenix again in April, rent a car and the highlite of the road trip will be ....you got it, the best place for steak and pork ribs I have EVER pulled up a chair to, and that says a lot. Li'L Abners, Tuscon Az. !!!
Classic Tucson – Don't go to Lil Abners if you're looking for cushy atmosphere or mingling with the in crowd. IF YOU WANT THE BEST RIBS EVER, go there. I have had ribs in Texas and S. Carolina, but believe me, they don't hold a candle to Lil Abners. Best ribs in Tucson, period. The beans are pretty good too!!!!!
Overpriced and overrated! – If you among a large party of say 12-15 people, don't expect speedy service. You may wait nearly an hour for your food. After dusk, use a flashlight to check on your meal. IMHO, this location is overpriced for what is offered, plus, it looks like a dump! There are better choices closer to town.
