Proper: A Dining Review

bar at Proper downtown tucson

January 2014. For at least the past two years we have been aware that good things are happening in Downtown Tucson, and that includes many new restaurants and pubs. Hub & Playground Hub Restaurant & Ice Creamery and the Playground Bar & Lounge have been open since before the Modern … Continue reading

Rosa’s Little Italy – Bisbee

Rosa's Little Italy, Bisbee

I have tried to dine at Rosa’s Little Italy, but circumstances didn’t allow me to make reservations. BIG MISTAKE! Rosa’s is only open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. The place is packed. No reservation, no luck. I have yet to ask Bisbee locals for dining recommendations and not have them mention … Continue reading

La Cocina Cantina

La Cocina Courtyard

You can dine indoors or in the Old Town Artisan’s courtyard, enjoy the creative cocktails or local beers at the bar, listen to live music under the stars, and dance until the wee hours. Great fun in a historic setting!

Tubac Deli & Coffee Company

Tubac-Deli-logo

One of the better places to eat lunch in Tubac is the Tubac Deli & Coffee Company near the entrance to the Village. Coffee & Danish in the AM. Good sandwiches and salads in the PM. Or just stop in for a cold drink on a hot day. Tubac Deli … Continue reading

Wildflower has Many Mysteries

WildFlower Restaurant

December, 2011 – We two had completed our errands and were trying to decide where to eat lunch. I used my mobile device to consult tripadvisor. Their customer reviews rate Wildflower highly. I checked their website. According to their menu, Wildflower says they continue “to set the standard for innovative, … Continue reading

Dining Near Tucson Museum of Art

Awesome Sunrise

This is what our eastern sky looked like a few minutes ago from our viewing deck. Just thought I should share. On another note, Ms. Karen & I had Sunday brunch yesterday at Agustin Brasserie in the Mercado just west of Downtown Tucson on Congress Street. What a magnificent interior. The food and service was [...]

Cafe Roka – Bisbee

Cafe Roka, Bisbee

Is Cafe’ Roka the best restaurant in Baja Arizona? You decide. But I’ll tell you this little story. Mr. Woodry and I have been dear friends for well over 40 years. He was my first supervisor on my first job after I graduated. Since then we have traveled extensively together … Continue reading

Jax Kitchen On North Oracle: A Review

Beet and Arugula Salad

January 2021. I had heard good things about Jax Kitchen on North Oracle and so, when I received a Groupon offering Lunch for 4, I was reasonably certain I could talk three friends into dining with me. With me for lunch last week were Ms. Karen, Ms. Sue, and Ms. Marcia. Always pleasant to dine [...]

Blanco Tacos + Tequila. La Encantada Mall – Tucson.

Blanco Tacos Y Tequila

Updated December, 2013 – BLANCO Tacos + Tequila says they offer “modern Mexican fare in a casual-chic setting. Updated classics like tacos, enchiladas, and queso crisps are reinterpreted with fresh, flavorful, and unique ingredients.” That they do and they said it better than I could. Blanco is not ‘authentic’ Tucson. … Continue reading

Brooklyn Pizza Company

As I usually do before I go to a dining establishment to write a review, I checked with the usual “real customer review” sites that contain some portion of “fake” reviews. Yelp & TripAdvisor customer reviews for Brooklyn Pizza are generally 3-4 Stars. And Tucson Weekly’s readers usually vote it … Continue reading

Stables Ranch Grille at Tubac Golf Resort: A Review!

Dos Silos at Tubac Golf Resort.

Summer 2013 – Neighbor Roy & I enter Stables Ranch Grille at Tubac Golf Resort with just enough local historical knowledge to be dangerous. Once past the thick mesquite front door we are walking on a cobblestone floor that is well over 200 years old. Had we been here back … Continue reading

Manor House & Rock ‘N Horse Saloon – Safford

Saloon-1-250

The following is a review included in our post about our Southeastern Arizona road trip which you can follow under Adventures and Back Roads. Now we were really hungry and getting desperate. The next possibility would be Manor House & Rock ‘N Horse Saloon. One obvious problem is that this … Continue reading

Kazoku Sushi & Japanese Cuisine

Kazoku's Shrimp Tempura Roll

May 2012 – I have discovered a second Asian restaurant that I can whole-heartedly recommend. The first was OM Modern Asian Kitchen with its delicious and eclectic choices of Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese, Chinese, Indian and Malaysian. And unlike most Asian restaurants in Tucson, OM has a small, but well-chosen selection … Continue reading
