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

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 […]

Saint House Rum Bar: A Review!

Ernest Hemingway Pouring A Drink

Editor’s Note: Sadly Saint House is now closed. A Rum Bar After it’s time perhaps. (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 … Continue reading

El Torero Mexican Restaurant: A Review!

El-Torero-Bar-560x373

A couple of years ago, our dear Tucson friends, Dan & Wanda, moved to Austin, TX. On a rare visit back to the Old Pueblo, they stayed with Ms. Karen & me for several days recently. We had a lovely time together, as always. That was expected. What wasn’t expected was their “must go to” […]

Iron Door Restaurant: Mt. Lemmon

Ski Valley Iron Door

The Iron Door is at the top of Mt. Lemmon. Good burgers, sandwiches, chili. Fresh baked pies. Weather permitting, ask to be seated on the patio. Hummingbird feeders hang all over the eaves. Service can be sketchy if they are not prepared for a crowd or someone doesn’t show up … Continue reading

Lindy’s On 4th Avenue: Does It Have The Best Burgers In Tucson?

Lindy’s OMFG Challenge

Last week Neighbor Roy & I continued our quest to find the best burger in Tucson. So far, we’ve reviewed Monkey Burger Downtown, and the new Diablo Burger in the Rialto building across from Hotel Congress. On both occasions, we had an overall delightful experience, but did note that both had their strengths & weaknesses. […]

Bisbee Breakfast Club

Bisbee Breakfast Club

I had breakfast at the Bisbee Breakfast Club. Every local I talked to recommended the place, so I felt compelled to test it out. The locals were right. Nothing fancy, but breakfast in Bisbee. Definitely. Bisbee Breakfast Club 75 Erie St in Bisbee, AZ 85603 For more of Bisbee’s Best … Continue reading

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

Overland Trout: Just How Good is it?

Overland Trout Chef Greg LaPrad.

November 2013 – Because it was a very rainy late fall Saturday afternoon, we didn’t expect Overland Trout to be all that busy. Apparently we had underestimated the buzz over this new restaurant in Sonoita. Fortunately, we had the foresight to make a reservation. We had first heard about Overland … Continue reading

Shelby’s Bistro

Shelby's Bistro Tubac

Shelby’s Bistro is a very good place to eat while visiting Tubac. It’s hidden away behind some shops and galleries and over a bridge on the south side of the Village, but once you’ve found it you’re in for a triple treat.

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!

Cushing Street Bar & Restaurant: A Review

Cushing Street Bar & Restaurant Interior

September 2013 – Ms. Karen & I are going in search of the Best Brunch in Tucson. We decided to start with the Cushing Street Bar & Restaurant because we had wanted to dine there for years and just never got around to it. Part of the reason is we … 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
