Dining in the Old Pueblo


Restaurants in Tucson favored by

The name is deceptive. Caterers. We love their large cinnamon buns. They cater and have an event center that can be rented out. Always have Car Shows, Market on the move and Holiday events going on.

Check out their website. Hard to find at Ina and Old Father.



Rosa’s Mexican Food

Authentic & small. Best Sonoran and salsa. Campbell & Ft Lowell tucked in the SW corner of strip mall.




Lil Abner’s Steak House

Good steaks & Chicken.  Served Cowboy style. Rustic & lots of outdoor seating. $$$ on Silverbell north of Cortaro Farms. 



Char’s Thai

For nearly 30 years, Char's Thai has offered exclusive Thai cuisine in a casual dining setting. 5th Street and Rosemont. An authentic hole in the wall.

The wild mural is worth stopping to see.

Locally owned and operated since 1998, we offer a variety of hand-crafted breads, delicious sandwiches, house-made soups, fresh salads, and decadent pastries all in a comfortable and friendly environment.

cure for every appetite, every day, every time with updated Italian favorites paired with impressively affordable wines. Italian pasta, artisan pizza and fresh salads. 




Frost Gelato

The best fresh gelato. The owners started the business out of college and worked such long hours we ended up buying them pillows to nap in the back room. They imported the Gelato Chef from Italy to create memorable flavors. LOVE IT. Now they are franchised as far away as Dubai. They started peach because of Jon’s request. 3 Tucson locations.  


Amazing Italian food surrounded by artwork. Small enough that the service varies but never the food.

Patti’s favorite Eggplant Parmesan.
 6060 N. Oracle Rd tucked in the courtyard.


A Tucson institution. 2 diners can order the same thing and the artful presentation comes out totally different.

Suzana Davila’s cuisine, which draws upon the wide range of flavors and ingredients indigenous to her native country, provides the ideal opportunity for diners to indulge in a truly unique and memorable dining experience.

The menu is on the chalk board daily by what is fresh.
