We had stayed in a VRBO very near here while visiting Oracle for a conference at the Biosphere. Based on the reviews I didn't expect much but it was a rainy, cold Saturday night and since this was a block away it became the likely choice regardless of our low expectations. I was kind of surprised by the charm on... More

Great western restaurant with wonderful grub . Ambience reminiscent of the old west . Great serving staff . Reasonable prices , reasonable portions with many menu options . Great separate barroom with pool tables and really cool bar . Separate restaurant facility with amazing history . Truly a great find in a small Arizona mountain town .

Don't order the fajitas. Just trust me on that. Unless you like your fajita vegetables overly soft (think BOILED) and mostly green bell peppers, with very scanty protein. Oh, and if you elect to share this dish, know that the side items (rice, guacamole, pico) will be sufficient for only one of you.

My wife and I visited Oracle Inn steakhouse on Sunday. We walked in and waited for someone to seat us but nobody showed up for several minutes. I finally had to walk toward the kitchen area to get somebody's attention. They claimed they did not hear the bell. I ordered the prime rib, and when it arrived it was already... More

Food is just ok. We prefer the bar to the restautant. This place could be a gold mine if they knew how to manage a restaurant. Service is disappointing. The bartenders simply arent friendly. The food is never the same twice so they must have a hard time keeping cooks. Prices for beer is very reasonable. They just simply do... More

The Oracle Inn was recommended to us by some of our neighbors. It is a good local hang out. The food was good. We had chicken wings and burgers. Both were very tasty and the service was good and efficient. We sat in the main dinning room and check out the bar. The bar is big with pool tables and... More

I am so disappointed! I went there tonight with a friend because the other place we wanted to try is closed on Tuesday. I had been looking forward to eating a nice steak. The reviews were good. We sat at the bar and had the two nicest waitresses. My margarita was ok, salad simple but very fresh and crisp, service... More

My wife and I went to the Oracle Inn Steakhouse and Lounge for the Sunday taco special – 3 ground beef tacos for $3.00. What a deal! The tacos were good and the staff was very friendly and appreciative of our choice to have lunch at their restaurant.

The Oracle Inn has been in business - except for a lengthy closure in the 90's to early 2000's after the local mine closed - since 1938. It mainly serves all-American and Mexican style food as well as German food nights. It is very popular - diners drive all the way from Tucson to get away from the heat of... More

Had a nice drive from Oro Valley to the Sunday taco special--three ground beef tacos for $3. Had two beers and left there having had dinner for under $10 not counting trip. Be sure to tip more--bar is dark, but uncrowded and the tacos were great.
