Our concierge at the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort suggested we visit this restaurant for a change of scenery and glad we did. Many good choices and the margaritas and cold beer was outstanding. Our server offered tips on the best margaritas and food and was spot on with his choices. The place was packed with locals, so it must be good to keep them coming back.

Part of a family owned chain dating from the 1920s. Great Margheritas! Good food! Nice ambience! Reasonable prices!
Crowded on weekends, but reservations are usually accepted. Large portions, but are happy to split if asked.

Absolutely delicious food with incredible choices. The Carne Seca is special! Very nice atmosphere and our server was top notch. Plenty of parking at this location. Some day, on a future trip to Tucson, we will also try the downtown location. Highly recommend!!

Great lunches, dinners, drinks, prices...what's not to love? Red & green salsa with your chips...sit inside or out, back room for larger parties (used this when the relatives were ALL here for lunch! Nice!)
