Elvira's has been in business since 1927. They moved their restaurant from Nogales, Mexico to Tubac, AZ last year due to the violence and other problems at the border. It was a good move because they have retained their longtime clientele and now have new customers. I am a Tucson native and used to go to the one in Nogales for years. The food is not your ordinary frontera style. They specialize in moles (7 or 8 kinds). My favorite is the mole negro. The flavors are complex and delicious. I plan on going back again next week.
