Great venue and great food. Indoor and outdoor space. Win/Win situation. Ask for Kaylin to plan your event.

We stay at a condo within walking distance from the restaurant, so we visited there twice. One was for drinks & nachos. Good margaritas but then it should be for $42 a pitcher!!!! We ordered two plates of nachos, two pitchers of margaritas, a side order of extra chips & salsa plus a tiny plate of roasted jalapeños & the... More

I had lunch and dinner here and took a friend from Texas that knows and loves BBQ. He gave this place a 10 out of 10 and that is what I did as well. The BBQ is fantastic and smoked just right. All of the sauces that we tried were very good and they have some killer side dishes such... More

The service and quality of the food were both excellent. We ate there twice in one weekend (that is how good it was!) and our waitresses were Malissa and Mia. Both were very friendly and took great care of us!!

I don't think you can go wrong here at Catalina BBQ, we've been going there for a few years now and have never had a bad experience. The food is always good, the pulled pork and burnt ends are consistent and always are great. We've had the smoked prime rib when it's on special and it's amazing....we've always . been... More

Always delicious and well worth the drive if you're coming from the other side of town. Went for Arizona Restaurant week and I was able to sample so many of their delicious menu items. Hard to pick a favorite but the pulled pork potato skins are a must order for the table. Melissa our server was a delight as well.... More

The Atmosphere, Service (Mia) , and Food were excellent. Mia was a great example of what a Marriott employee should be. She talked up the rest of the resort and genuinely seemed to enjoy being there. I have a relative who manages a Ritz Carlton hotel in NY and Mia reminded me of him in that she had the perfect... More

Now I am not a big rib eater but Catalina changed my mind. Best ribs in Tucson..... Only complaint is they need to offer towelettes to clean your hands. I will eat there again on my next trip to Starr Pass.
