Creative menu & a nice selection of beers in unique fun surroundings. Great place for a date or a family gathering. Check out the old pix of Pancho Villa & his buddies on the back walls...

We went on a Saturday night with another couple. Our server Nancy was delightful and working with half the menu available. Something about a truck strike left no chimichangas and no avocado hence no guacamole. One chicken and rib combo entree was super dry, the quarter chicken being more like an eighth and the ribs look like leftover pieces (for... More

My husband had a quesadilla and I had a pulled pork sandwich with homemade potatoe chips. You should have seen that quesadilla! We sat outside and were treated to a nice warm day. The pork had a smoky flavor and was very tender. The chips were crisp and perfect. We noticed others with onion rings! We will be back and... More

We had tasty food and thoughtful, prompt service today at Jack's. We were seated immediately, and they let us select the one we preferred. The fish tacos were super delicious; I was disappointed there were only two and they were rather small. The Jacks quesadilla had an excellent sauce and bacon-what's not to like? Cost was reasonable. My husband was... More

I don't understand why some have found this establishment unacceptable. We were just there and I can promise you the food is very good and the servers are very are extremely friendly and obliging. I highly recommend Tubac Jacks....and I don't give rave reviews unless they are deserved.

I'd read in a few places that their food-- specifically what they advertise as their "World Famous Green Chili Stew" was good. It was the poorest excuse for green chile stew-- or any stew-- that I've ever had. It wasn't even stew: it was a flavorless, thin clear broth with a few canned beans and corn in the bottom of...

Stopped for lunch. Southwest salad was tasty, burger was good but the bin was hard. Service was ok but she acted like we were bothering her just to ask for raw onion. I would say it was a good stop on a beautiful day for a decent lunch. Skip the pear iced tea.

We showed up around 4pm for a late lunch and the waitress recommended the mussels which were on special. We ordered those and a couple prickly pear iced teas. The iced tea was great, but the mussels never showed. We went on to order our entres and she said the mussels were sold out, but I think she just forgot... More

Visited on 12-28 and th service was unbelievably horrible. A party of 4 ordering 3 hamburgers and a salad & onion rings.You would think pretty standard for a restaurant of this type. There were only 2 tables occupied when we entered the restaurant at around 2:00. Our waitress was very responsive in taking our orders and bringing water and an... More
