“Not what we were hoping for”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

Tucson McGraw's looks like a fun place to eat with a great view. However, it feels more like a bar that also serves food. We've eaten there three times in the last 10 years. The third time was last week. Still no better than ten years ago. My wife and I both had hamburgers (cheeseburger and patty melt). The cook must have squeezed every drop of juice out of the burgers. They were dry and without flavor. My patty melt had very few onions and the tiniest piece of swiss cheese. The rye bread was too thick. The result was that I had to drink water after every bite. My wife felt the same way. For a $10 hamburger this was NOT what we were looking for.

“Lovely view”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

They serve really good burgers and fries and if the weather is OK to sit on the (covered) terrace you can feed the cheeky ground squirrels as well. Service is friendly and efficient.

“Average bar food with a great view”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

I have stopped here a few times. Typically after a round of golf or a visit to the fairgrounds. The beer is cold and the food is just o.k.
Nothing special here.

If you sit out on the patio, you can give some food bits to the ground squirrels who frequent that area. If you are lucky enough to be there when there is a storm to the south, you can see an interesting lightening show. Really pretty neat.
