We went there in mid April, it was gorgeous weather so we ate outside. The food was great (burger & steak were both cooked just right, penne rigate was perfect, truffle fries were just ok.) This place is just outside the front entrance to the...More

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.

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...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...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...More
