Steakhouse | Downtown Tucson, Tucson

We went to Bob’s (based on reviews) for my Hubby’s 66th. We asked for a quiet table with a view...it was lovely! His filet was not only perfectly cooked, it was buttery soft and full of flavor. The carrots were amazing, and the carrot cake was delicious. We had a very nice server, but I have to say that the person who refilled our water glasses and cleared our dishes was over the top efficient. The manager actually delivered my husband’s cake with a candle on it. We had a great experience! More

We had a grand time dining with family from Rochester, New York. My sister in law and I each enjoyed the Vivace speciality excellent sliced filet mignon on toast in Marsala sauce. My wife delighted in her favorite Red Bird Chicken in creme sauce, while her brother was very pleased with his choice of striped sea bass. Stuart took great care of us, today ncluding provision of take out tiramisu for four along with our leftovers. We are always pleased to bring friends and family to Vivace for fine times and memorable meals. We’ll be back! 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

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.
