Great food and marvelous view of the golf course from the patio. Portions are huge, at least for the BBQ salad. It was probably enough for three people. My husband had the tortilla soup which was excellent and nachos with queso dip and we took some of everything home.

I would not say this is the best restaurant at the resort but it is not bad either. If you are looking for bbq I would recommend going off of the resort as there are much better restaurants in town. It is a great place for families and the bar area has lots of tv's if you want to watch... More

We ate here twice during our visit to Tucson. Both meals were very very good. On both visits our Server, John McIntosh, really stood out. He handled our requests without a question, was spot on with recommendations and added to two very enjoyable dinners.

Pleasantly surprised at the large portions and tasty food. I had the brisket with their famous Mac & Cheese... which was amazing. My husband had the Ribs and Brisket with their well known creamed corn. The little cornbread muffins were a delightful addition as well. Our server was very friendly and knowledgable. The only reason I rated it as a... More

We went for a company function, and the service was OUTSTANDING. The waitstaff was cheerful, kind and attentive. The food was disappointing. The menu was fixed, and the three people with whom I ate who ordered steaks "medium" got them well done. (They didn't mention it to the staff.) There were a few vegetarians, and there was only one option:... More

The Queso is good and the BBQ Brisket tips are very good and portion size is huge. Service is a bit slow but very friendly

What a great experience, not only was everything we tried on the menu outstanding but the view was incredible even in late December when it was cold out. We felt as if we were outside. The waiter was polite and very accommodating, the BBQ choices (3 meat platter) and 3 sauces were great. Worth the short drive from Tuscon.

Found this place to be excellent-right on a golf course and restaurant and bar afterwards had a nice variety of beres and drinks and the food was high quality. And there were four 4 o'clock NFL games and then had a different one on each TV. I highly recommend the pulled pork and macaroni and cheese. The pulled pork comes... More

Variety of good food with many BBQ options. We eat here a lot. You can watch the golfers, the birds, or stare at the scenery. Every employer is a delightful person. If you want to watch a sport on TV, there are always a few to choose from
