Oxacan Mexican food

Great service and good view of Tucson. I had eaten here before and liked the food. This time I tried the pork, and it was tasty but dry. I recommend this as a good solid Mexican place on the west side. The construction on Silverbell made it harder to find the entrance, but always worth the trip.

This restaurant came highly recommended by some neighbors and as we were already in the neighborhood we gave it a try for lunch. It was not busy and the service was friendly and reasonably fast. I was looking forward to freshly made tortillas when I ordered the tacos carne asada, but mine were chewy, so I am guessing they were... More

After watching the sunset at Gate's Pass, I stopped here for take-out on the way back to my hotel. It was a Friday night and the restaurant was very busy but the bartender who took my order was friendly. The food was delicious, warm, and well-packaged for take out. I didn't stay long inside but the decor was beautiful and... More

This is a very nice restaurant. It's hard to find if you don't know where it's at but it's worth the effort. The service is always good and the food is hard to beat. One of the best Mexican restaurants in Tucson in my opinion. Worth checking out!

For years, I have been told that there is this terrific Mexican restaurant on the west side of town (Silverbell and Grant). As I live in the east side, its not a practical "regular" destination. However, while on that side of town we made a stop and were pleasantly surprised. The food, salsa, and margaritas were all great. This place... More

Very good food and service. We eat here for both breakfast and dinner. You can get in and out quickly and the food and service is always consistent.

From the delicious salsa, cheese crisp and huevos rancheros with chorizo to the special of the day, chicken tacos and burritos, the whole meal was delicious. We ordered margaritas and I was disappointed. I was looking forward to a great drink and instead it tasted like a limeaide with a bit of salt on the rim of the glass. Having... More

Our friend from Tucson introduced us to Teresa's Mosaic Cafe, and it was well worth the drive! Best Mexican food - I rated my salad a 10! And the guacamole and chips. My husband and I will definitely go there again when we are in Tucson. Charming. Great food. Loved all the mosaic table tops and mirrors. Service great. The... More
