We took house guests to visit Tubac as it is a great town with lots of lovely shops and galleries. We had lunch at Shelby's Bistro on a deck with a nice view. It is decorated in a colorful southwestern style. The menu makes use of a variety of local ingredients. The food was very good and so was the service. It is a great spot to relax after walking and shopping.

Great service, sublime food, great view of the mountains, loved the colorful napkins (really they did add). Portobello mushroom dishes were fabuloso. Soup was divine!

Consistently very good. Been going there for over ten years. Changing menu but always exceptional! Eat outdoors in weather is good.

I've been to Tubac several times and never heard of Shelby's Bistro til I read about it on Trip Advisor. They should advertise locally so both locals and visitors can find out about it. We went on a Fri night in Aug. There were only about 3 other diners there. The waitress said the bulk of their business is when the snowbirds arrive. The ambiance was lovely. We sat outside next to fireplaces with gas logs and a view of the mountains. Our meals were delicious. Wine was 1/2 price so we splurged on 2 bottles among 3 of us! All in all a very reasonably priced dinner, good food from appetizer to dessert, and a nice atmosphere. We will definitely return now that we know it's there!

Shelby's is a great little place for lunch or dinner. Although the inside is small, the patio is great, with nice views. The food is always delicious, the menu is changed a little each time I have been there, which is a nice touch. The best sellers remain on the menu, so everyone should be happy. The service is always good, the food served is stylish and yummy, and the wait staff is pleasant. Shelby's is a good choice for anyone new to the Tucson area, with shopping right next door. It makes for a great day out.
