The B Line. Serving cheap, gourmet meals since 2002, a decade before all those food truck guys came on the scene. A gift to Tucson, and a huge part of any discerning UA student's meal plan. I can't believe I'm saying this, but even though I've consumed the steak salad and the Pasta Alla Vodka and just about everything on this menu, I had never eaten the tacos until this week. 

What was I thinking? The hunk of blackened Mahi Mahi on here is just about the best fish I've ever eaten on a tortilla. Heavily spiced but oh-so delicate, it's just beautiful with the shredded cabbage and buttery avocado. It's simple food, done really really well. But what am I saying, you knew that already ...   

Weird irrelevant fact: My partner Housten and I actually ate here on our first date, and we've been together nine years this month. The food was that good!
