Tubac Jack's is a bit of an institution in Tubac. A bit of the old West atmosphere and the bar area can get a bit rowdy (but in a good way)...Food is good and a reliable and the servers are fun and knowledgeable about the town and its history. Actually, not many options as the town itself is small but... More

I have been here twice now and both times I have been fully satisfied. I ordered steak both times and the second time, I personally went to thank the chef. I ordered my steak seared for just a few seconds on each side, and it was cooked PERFECTLY. One of the better steaks that I've ever head, and that's saying... More

My husband and I ate Dinner here. I had chicken fingers and fries and soda. My husband had a steak, mashed potatoes and soup. The price was very reasonable. Under 40.00, he also had an imported beer. Definitely a place to go.

We had lunch at this wonderful restaurant. There were 4 of us and everyone had something different. The green chili stew was phenomenal! One of our group had a strawberry walnut salad and it was enormous and excellent. Someone else had the barbecue and it was also outstanding. They also offer some decadent desserts. The service was impeccable. Our waitress... More

My husband tried their pork stew and like it a lot. I liked that it had cilantro. Their chips and salsa were very good - light and crispy and the salsa has just the right amount of kick. I had their famous bar-b-que and it was great. I loved their homemade sauce. Just the right amount of kick as well.... More

On Friday nights we gather with friends to enjoy Johnny Bencomo play his guitar and sing. This historic, local restaurant features great BBQ pulled pork sandwiches and baby-back ribs, flatbread pizzas, quesadillas, burgers, and many other special items. A variety of Southern Arizona bands play Saturday nights, with dancing on the outdoor patio. This is a great place to bring... More

This restaurant was fun, relaxing, and you get fed a great meal. After shopping and walking all day you need a good place to hang for awhile and I recommend TUBAC JACKS. I had fish tacos (yum) my hubby had a burger, both were super good and the cold beer just makes everything all better. Our server was efficient, happy... More

We had lunch at Tubac Jack's and ended up staying almost 3 hours. It's an old style tavern with a restaurant too. Strongly recommend the fish tacos. Great atmosphere and very nice down to earth people working there. There is indoor and outdoor seating, recommend sitting outside in the spring, fall, and winter. Strongly recommend that you come in on... More
