Tucson Restaurants

The Tucson restaurant scene is an intriguing mix of innovation and tradition. The self-proclaimed "Mexican food capital of the United States," Tucson has plenty of evidence to back up this lofty claim: the oldest family-run Mexican food restaurant, our number four pick, El Charro Cafe, is in Tucson, and it's rumored that the chimichanga was invented right here in the Old Pueblo.

But aside from the to-die-for abundance of good Mexican food you'll find around town, the Tucson culinary scene also excels in other areas. Restaurants like Feast, located in midtown, are creating eclectic gourmet dishes that are hard to categorize, but easy to digest. Another great restaurant to see what's happening in the fast-evolving Tucson foodie scene is at Acacia at St. Philips. Acacia is home to Albert Hall, one of Tucson's best chefs, where you'll find creative--and exquisite--dishes such as Oaxacan risotto and roasted plum tomato-and-basil soup.

For traditionalists, our number two pick, KingFisher Bar and Grill, is a great spot for reliably delicious classic American cuisine, while local Tucson chain Beyond Bread offers up delectable sandwiches and desserts made from scratch daily.
