“A pleasant evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

We have dined at the Old Pueblo on several previous visits to Tucson. We had a long day of touring the Green Valley/Tubac area, and wanted a relaxed meal. The entrance and grounds are always inviting, reminding you of an old Hacienda. The interior is dressed in wood giving a semi-formal but comfortable ambiance. The waiter was prompt and offered a choice of different water selections and tended to our drink order promptly.

I started with an appetizer of crispy calamari, which was served hot. They were tender with a nice hint of spicy pepper. My dinner choice was "Three Amigos", an enchilada sampler. I quickly found I did not need the calamari appetizer, the plate was large and filled with chicken, beef, and cheese enchiladas with red rice, charro beans and veggies. All were nicely prepared, bubbly hot and tasty. The wife enjoyed her choice of Sea Bass and Mexican White Shrimp, which were moist, delicate and tender.

Wait service was a compliment to the meal, and we were visited regularly to refresh our drinks and making sure the meal was just right. We shared a nice desert (which we did not need!), and our wish to have a relaxing dinner was fulfilled. I believe there are several new items on the menu, and we are anxious to return and try them. They have live Jazz music on Sundays, which we look forward to enjoying.

It is notable that the owner responds to many of the reviews, which shows me a true commitment to customer satisfaction, as well as keeping the premises and staff focused on detail for their dining guests. Muy Bueno y muchas gracias!

“Good food in a great setting with great service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

Good Southwesten food in a nice clean setting. I sat outside among the palm trees and enjoyed the wonderful garden area.
The food was good. The service was friendly. I would definitely return, there are a few more things in the menu that would like to try.

“Anniversary dinner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

We arrived early-6ish- for a celebratory meal. The food was very good-the fried calaimari appetizer was great, the shrimp trio was cool but also very good. Our service was poor due to our server being overtabled and the wait staff not proficient. This was a definite surprise to us as we have normally been very pleased. Friday night?

Happy Anniversary!!! Thank you for choosing to celebrate with us. I am pleased to read that you very much enjoyed the food. I am sorry that the service did not match. I will address this with our management and service team. We should have been better prepared and we will make sure to up our level of staffing on a Friday night when running a delicious shrimp promotion again. Again, I apologize that was not the case on your special evening. Please join us again and let our GM, Ryan Heidrick, know when you are coming 520-326-6000. I am sure he will see to it that you are well cared for and that you experience the level of service we pride ourselves on providing. Have a wonderful day and thank you for your excellent feedback.

“Private Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

We hosted some dignataries, so we ate in a private room, but ordered off the regular menu. Out of a dozen people, everyone said the food and desserts were great.
