    Always fun and relaxing to come here. Been coming over to this cafe for years since high school. It's one of my favorite places downtown.

    Open 24 hours which is now rare Downtown. shot in the Dark is one if the last establishments that represent what Downtown Tucson used to be in the 90s and early 2000s

    Love the pasta salad. Beans and rice are good. I've been coming here since the 90's. Different name then.

    The Carlin is indeed dynamite. Love the Shot In The Dark on those hungry nights staggering out of Club Congress. Great place.

    Bring some mosquito netting or a bug zapper. The flies have overtaken this place big time.
