Service was good and the ribs were fantastic (maybe a little pricey). But I was appalled by how filthy the men's bathroom was. I am not particularly fussy about this issue but I am amazed that the owner allows this. Especially since other people have complained in previous reviews...

We were there during the Luminaria nights celebration. Very busy but they were prepared for it. The food and service were great. The smoke prime rib was outstanding. Only reason not a 5 was the seating is a bit tight. Loved the live music as well.

We really liked the super friendly staff and semi-kitschy atmosphere. Quesadillas were yummy! Good beer selection. Great way to start out day in Tubac!

Everything was so fresh, fast, hot, and a unique menu. It was clean in there, fun, and a fun place to eat outside.

Considering the location, competition in the area and high price, everything was mediocre. The hand written wine board boasted some quality wines, but the were all out. My choices ended up being the house white or the house red. Our server was not familiar with the menu items and had to keep finding someone else to answer our questions. The... More

Stopped for lunch on Black Friday. The restaurant was very busy. The very pleasant waitress took our drink order and wanted us to know the kitchen was extremely busy so food would take a little longer than normal. Food did take a little longer than normal, but she checked with us, refreshed drinks and kept us updated. My taco salad... More

My parents, who live in Tubac, we're looking forward to taking me to this place on a Friday night. We evidently caught them on a bad night. My mom and I had the green chile stew, one of the specialties, which my mother said in the past was excellent. Unfortunately, the recipe must've changed for tonight, as it was salty... More

Sri, I'm so sorry your experience was not up to your expectations or our usual standards. I want to assure you we did not change the recipe for the stew, but clearly someone goofed. I hope the next time you're visiting you'll come back and give us another chance. Please ask for me or my manager so we can make... More

Inside and outside seating provides a relaxing atmosphere. Good menu with interesting food items. This place can get quite busy on weekends and in the evening. Easier to get good service and food served during lunch time. They often have live music on the weekend evenings.

We went to Tubac Jack on a lark--just an impulse to try it. We are very glad that we did so. It was relaxing outside court, and the food was very good. We expect to go back many times. The green chili stew, salmon, ribs, and burgers were very good.

Thank Paul U
