QUICK REVIEW: On Grant Road just west of Silverbell Road (up on a hill north of a McDonalds) is one of Tucson's most revered Jewels of the Desert. We call this place simply "Mosaics." Having been here a number of times, my review comes from the heart. Mosaics is that place you go if you or friends/family/business acquaintances have never... More

I have been coming to Mosaic for years. The food is consistently good. They hand make their tortillas right in the front of the restaurant for customers to see. I hadn't been there for quite a while as I had been going to another place closer to my house. I went there b-4 Christmas and have been back 4 times... More

Food is very good here with a large variety offered on the menu. Drinks are excellent...go at happy hour and get the margarita's. It seems they are always busy but service is great with friendly, helpful, efficient waiters. Prices are very reasonable and the good meal makes it worth it. We would highly recommend you dine here.

I've eaten here multiple times and have always enjoyed the food. For me, it's one of the better Mexican spots in town. Nice building, interesting looking and service is good. The only negative is the one person bathroom for ladies... This establishment is well visited and hopefully they are able to add another bathroom stall for ladies in the future.

We visit Tucson about once a year and always come to Teresa's. Fresh homemade food, cheap compared to what we would pay in New Jersey and friendly service. The chicken tacos are my favorite but everything is good. Great happy hour Mon-Thur it was 3.50 for a margarita and I think 3.00 or 3.50 for a quesadilla. If you don't... More

My wife and I stopped in twice now when visiting Tucson. Their breakfast options are delicious. I recommend their chorizo. Their refried beans are not made with lard but just as delicious. For lunch I had a red chili burrito with beans. My wife had machaca tacos. Amazing! Great posh southwestern Mexican decor. Great service. Delicious food!

We had breakfast at about 11 am, so it wasn't very crowded. The hostess chose the nicest table available, and the entire experience was full of similar acts of good hospitality. The busboy brought coffee and kept it coming. Servers helped each other out with pouring coffee. Our server was knowledgable about the food. He brought us corn tortillas, in... More

On Saturday and Sunday the restaurant offers a breakfast menu up to 11 a.m. We enjoyed authentic breakfasts. I had molee breakfast burritos and my husband had huevos rancheros.

I was a little nervous since this restaurant was rated over 100, but it was close to my appointment. From a distance it looks like a nice restaurant in Old Mexico. Inside they served the best Bloody Mary I have had in years. We ate two bowls if their tasty salsa. They served us quickly as I had an appointment... More
