A Westside Treasure

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... read more

Teresa's cafe is a great place to have good Mexican food and the prices are very reasonable! Great specialty drinks. Service is great and nice little bar area with tv screens.

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

Definitely order the Mexican dishes. We went to breakfast on a weekday so it was great to not have a long wait, which is normal in the weekend. My boyfriend ordered the French toast and I got one of the Mexican dishes(machaca and eggs). Mine was amazing and his was less than good.

Went their because the huevos ranchero were promoted as beating Bobby Flay. Good flavor but light on food. And left Hungary. Would not go back for that but would try other entrees.

It was terrible. First I made a reservation. that is in itself was like talking to the village idiot(s) . by the window I requested. We got there and the hostess said that they do not guarantee that. So we opted for the table for 2 and had another chair added. We ordered and we waited and waited and waited.... More

I rented a casita for a week on the west side of Tucson and the owners recommended Teresa's as a great spot that locals frequent and raved about the freshly made flour tortillas. It was great! I went at about 6:00 and it was full - dining area off to the left and bar on the right. Didn't want to... More
