I absolutely LOVE Pastiche Modern Eatery!!!! The new owners could not be nicer and for what they did for the Federal workers when the "shutdown" occurred, by offering the workers a free dinner, I realized I wanted to spend my money at Pastiche!!! The food is very tasty and the wait staff are very helpful, polite and very fun!!! Thank you Pastiche!!! More

I can always count on Fleming’s. Service and food are always outstanding. A special shoutout to my bartender for going above and beyond with a special request martini. A martini that Fleming’s should add to their menu. Thank you for a great birthday dinner! More

Global, International | Midtown, Tucson

This place was really fun and friendly. Would give 5 stars on food except that my husband was disappointed in crispy chicken. He thought skin was chewy rather than crispy. The duck and asparagus tart were supreme. Presentation is beautiful and wine list outstanding. The chef cane around to each table which is always nice. We had a 7:45 reservation but arrived early. The staff did a great job of accommodating us. More

Tequila Factory at Casino Del SolTequila Factory at Casino Del Sol
$$$$
Mexican | West Tucson, Tucson

The Tequila Factory more than lives up to its name with more than 120 varieties of fiery flavor gracing its shelves. This is an authentic cantina experience. Great food, fun people, and a rustic feel of old Mexico are all mixed together at Casino Del Sol. Order signature, family recipes and homemade soups and salads. Traditional and unique entrees served fresh and enticing. Go ahead, order another margarita, no one’s countingMore

Discover Tucson

Considering that Tucson is the birthplace of the chimichanga, it should come as no surprise that Mexican restaurants are prolific in this city. Tucson falls right on the edge of the Sonoran Desert, and the cooking style in the city represents what's popular throughout this desert region. Sonoran dishes are typically based on beans, corn tortillas, cheese, peppers, and meat. Of course, although Tucson is distinctly Sonoran, it is also American, and that means you're sure to find a melting pot of cuisines within the city. When you're ready to branch out from Southwestern fare, try seafood or steak. Thin-crust pizza hits the spot when you want a familiar dish, and to top off your meal, homemade gelato is a local favorite.
