I went to Mi Nidito on a Sunday night on the advice of a tour guide. Perhaps it was because of what I ordered, but I am really not sure why so many people are willing to wait 45 minutes to over 1 ½ hours for a table here. First, a parking lot attendant, dressed in black, talking on his cell phone, waves “NO, NO!” at me as I was entering their lot. He did get off the phone long enough to advise me to park across the street, but couldn’t tell me how long the wait was. Inside, the manager/host was a little rude about my wanting a table if it was “just you?” My wait was about 20 minutes, and I was led quickly to a wet table: at least it was a four-person booth to myself. I was served water fairly quickly by a busser. The waitress did not speak to me, merely stood by my table and glared impatiently as I told her what I wanted. I had the rellenos, which were slammed onto my table fairly quickly but somehow had already lost their crispiness. They were both filled with and drowned in very bland melted white cheese. The rice and beans that were served with it were better: the rice actually tasted like rice with a savory blend of Mexican spices. After about 15 minutes, I could not cram anymore greasy cheese down so I pushed my plate away. Considering how rushed everyone was, I was surprised to have to wait 10 minutes for my check. After another 10 minutes with cash out to pay, I finally went to the front to pay. I was glad to get back to my hotel to sleep it off.
You get a lot of food for a great price. Trust me, there isn't a better Mexican restaurant in Tucson. When you get there you will have to wait for a table. That should tell you something. Wait. You won't regret it. I have tried just about every Mexican food place in town. None of them come close to Mi Nidito in quality. Yeah, the wait can be a bummer, but trust me, the food is worth it. The service is worth it. The atmosphere is worth it. No one I've ever taken there from anywhere in the US has said they know a better place. It's that good.
The food is good, the margaritas are great, and if you hit this place when it's slow, then it rates 4 stars. But if you hit it at lunch or dinner, the incredible amount of time you have to wait for a table just begins to wear you down. This place deserves four stars, but the crowd that's out front waiting, waiting, waiting, is always enough to make me go somewhere else. So, four stars for food quality, two stars for the incredible wait for a table, so a compromise of three stars.
THIS IS PROBABLY THE BEST SONORAN MEXICAN RESTAUARANT,WITH AUTHENTIC SONORAN FLAVOR. YOU CAN EXPECT TO WAIT FROM 30-60 MINUTES BECAUSE IT IS ALWAYS BUSY, BUT IT IS WORTH THE WAIT. TRY THEIR FROZEN MARGARITAS THEY ARE GREAT.
