Restaurants

Desert City, Foodie's Paradise

Simple street tacos of mesquite-grilled carne asada sprinkled with salty queso cotija and fresh cilantro. Moist, firm tamales made with real cream and masa from green corn ground daily. Smoky, spicy-sweet moles that taste the way passion feels.

If you've only had "Mexican food" at a chain, you owe it to yourself to discover the real thing and taste what makes Tucson the Mexican food capital of the U.S. But that's just one story in a city where good food is a big part of good living.

Tucson has a surprisingly diverse population and its restaurants reflect that, from steaming bowls of authentic Vietnamese pho to real kabsa with perfectly grilled halal lamb, just as you'd find in Saudi Arabia and throughout the Middle East.

Vegetarians, vegans and paleos eat very well here, as do folks who like nothing better than a juicy burger. We have James Beard award-winning cuisine, smartly-plated bistro fare all around the city, and a growing number of restaurants that specialize in organic, locally-sourced foods.

Yeah, we like our food. And we're pretty sure you will too.
