outstanding food and service AND the best people-watching perch downtown. I love the patio on a nice day, watching the world go by. They often have live music in the courtyard of the Congress Hotel.

Keep your eyes on our patio this summer. Our entertainment department has been lining up acts to enjoy these Tucson summer evenings with DJ's and live music.

This is a interesting little restaurant in the historical Hotel Congress. They have a small but good menu with a wide variety of dishes including vegetarian. The atmosphere suits the old hotel, and it's a neat stop if you're visiting Tucson. The parking lot for the restaurant is a little small, but there are plenty of other places to park nearby.

The hotel only has 12 parking spaces, but we're less than one block away from three separate lots and garages, so there's always parking somewhere nearby.

Rather than order a more expensive entree, I chose the appetizer tacos, both the fish tacos and the pork belly tacos. Oh my, what an experience. The tortillas are as thin as rice paper and yet hold together well. Delicious. And the service was good, too.

Many customers often will order an appetizer for themselves as an entree, and we're glad to hear that you enjoyed both styles of tacos we serve at The Cup.

Had a couple beers and tried both the pork belly and fish tacos....each absolutely delicious. Not sure about the other food but the tacos are worth a visit.... Nice patio/beer garden too.

Tucson has a lot of great Mexican restaurants, but we keep hearing from people that our tacos are some of the best in town. One of the perks of having a "New American" menu is we can take the best dishes from all over the world and offer our unique spin on it.

I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed three of our most popular dishes, including The Baked Eggs, which is by far the most popular. Thanks for the review!
