The Best 23 Miles of Mexican Food

The most delectable Mexican food north of the border

Tucson is home to the most authentic Mexican food north of the border. The highest concentration of these restaurants is found within a 23-mile area that includes the City of South Tucson, downtown and lower midtown. At these terrific eateries, many of which are family-owned and decades old, the settings are casual, the ingredients are fresh and the experience is unforgettable.

 

Arizona Weekend Explorer - Tucson Mexican Restaurants

 

Embark on a culinary marathon of Tucson’s delectable Mexican restaurants. Some dishes you’ve heard of, like tacos, burritos and enchiladas; and some you’ll probably experience for the first time, like caramelos (meat-filled cheese crisps), toritos (shrimp-stuffed chiles wrapped in bacon) and raspados (Sonoran-style snow cones with ice cream and fresh fruit). Or sink your teeth into a world famous Sonoran Hot Dog (hot dog wrapped in bacon, smothered in beans and pico de gallo, topped with mayonnaise on a soft bolillo roll).
 
No matter what, bring your appetite and sense of adventure, and go the distance in Tucson’s 23 miles of Mexican food.
