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

Dakota Cafe: A Dining Review

Dakota Cafe Front

It was a hot July Sunday, barely afternoon, when Ms. Karen & I took off on one of our adventures. We usually do a Sunday day-trip, but we got a late start and this would have to be a half-day trip. We headed for the wilds of East Tucson, a … 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

Saint House Rum Bar: A Review!

Ernest Hemingway Pouring A Drink

(September 2013) Dr. Gil & I meet over lunch or dinner 2-3 times a year to solve the most pressing problems of the world. He’s a successful Tucson physician, and his interests are wide-ranging, including politics, religion, & international travel. So conversations tend to be lively. They usually begin with … 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 [...]

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.

Sawmill Run Restaurant, Summerhaven: A Review

Patio Dining At Sawmill Run On A Fine June Afternoon.

June 2012 To escape the oppressive June heat a few weeks ago, we drove up to Mt. Lemmon for the day. Traveling with Ms. Karen & me were her brother & our sister-in-law, Cliff & Lynne, visiting from Florida for the first time. Another reason I wanted to go was that I had heard there [...]

B Line on 4th Avenue, Tucson

The B Line Restaurant

The B Line is casual dining and a local favorite for good reason. For breakfast, their crapes, bagels, and pancakes are excellent.
For lunch and dinner, their menu is varied – from soups & sandwiches, to salads w/ or w/o chicken or fish; to carne asada burritos; to pan fried salmon – all very tasty.

Santiago’s Mexican Restaurant, Bisbee

Santiago's Restaurant Bisbee

Just about every time I have gone to Bisbee over the past year I have tried to dine at Santiago’s Mexican Restaurant. However, something always managed to spoil my plans…until last week.I had heard a lot of positive comments about Santiago’s as I wandered Old Bisbee taking photographs and talking with the natives. Now I know why. Just walking in the front door will put a smile on your face. The interior is light and colorful, even playful. Very Mexican in the best possible sense. Santiago’s is a happy place.

La Cocina Courtyard

Table 10 Bisbee: A Dining Review.

Bisbee-Table-10_thumb

The best thing about the Inn at Castle Rock is not the funky, yet comfortable rooms, nor the rustic café, nor even the view from the balconies. No, not even its history. These are all well & good. But the best thing about the Inn At Castle Rock is Chef Hazel.
