As you’re headed down the I-19 from Tucson to Tumacacori, you will see a sign for the little town of Amado. Most prominently, you will see two rustic looking restaurants across the street from each other.

He explained that the owners of the Resort had just a few days earlier fired whoever was operating Stables, and the Resort was now in charge of the restaurant.
