Hey folks....you don't go to Tucson McGraw's because it has "haute cuisine". But tuck in there an hour or so before sunset, sit outside, have a couple of "Fat Tires" on tap and revel in the gorgeous scenery to the south and west. You'll love it. The fries are great, and the tri-tip sandwiches are pretty good so just enjoy and don't whine about this not having a French chef preparing your fare.

The prices have gone up, no more french fries with sandwichs, the menu is small - but the service never improves and the place is still dirty as ever. After 8 years of on/off visit and always poor service. We'll not visit again - we go to the New Settlement on Spanish Trail now.

Let me get this out of the way first - what's with the four stupid fake saguaro's? This drives me nuts every time I see the place. I've considered driving my car into them as a public service. As for the view, it is indeed one of the best in east Tucson. It is perched on one of the highest points in Tucson proper. On the patio, they roll back several garage doors and you can enjoy the fresh air as you look south over the lowland area. The generic Mexican food and service are nothing to write home about. If the weather is good, you're in the neighborhood and you just want some chips and salsa - then by all means give it a try.

McGraw's has been on the top of that bluff overlooking the stables and
"as far as you can see" southern desert seems like --forever!
Originally and partially owned by a Canadian who loved the location.
Sure, appearances and interior are quite rustic, but little change, other than
some paint and some exterior development has occured since its debut!
Great outdoor-indoor patio(with lots of visiting roadrunners)--try the
signature Tucson grilled cheese---margs by the pitcher, and all american
bar cuisine is to be expected.
Service has always been cordial and smiling. Sit at the bar during 100 plus
degrees and see if you don't enjoy their icicle cold beer!
This place is made to have fun--and to enjoy a great "Tucson Cantina"
experience.

I've been to this restaurant 3 times and have yet to get served after 20 minutes. Once we actually got water but that was the best. After our third try we decided to call it quits. We never tried again!
