Food scene
These are some of my favorite eateries - and fairly close by. La Encantata Plaza north on Campbell Ave has many great restaurants and they are detailed in the guide. Also, several wonderful restaurants in St Phillips Plaza on SE corner of River Rd and Campbell.
i love this easy mexican restaurant. Seis as the menu is from 6 different areas of Mexico. order off the board as you wait in line. service to table is quick. my fav is the cod fish taco. the sauce is fantastic and the green salsa is my go-to. but there are many good choices.

The long time Tucson favorite serves traditional Mexican delights. the best item for me is the table side salsa preparation. they give a generous portion and i usually tip a few bucks to that server. super delicious. Sometimes the Mariachi perform fairly reasonable prices. On Prince Road past Mountain on your left. https://www.guadalajaraoriginalgrill.com/

I love this place for brunch or breakfast or lunch. It might be a four-star restaurant. The dining room is historic, set with white table cloths and soaring ceilings, it’s first class service. Breakfast out on the patio or in the back by the pool Is such a treat as you look out over the grass and palm trees and gardens. Slow and relaxed, it takes you back in time. Dinner is pricey and amazing. closer to the UofA off Campbell on Elm St. https://www.arizonainn.com/dining/main-dining

A little bit of France in Tucson. Delightful French menu served in two smallish rooms and an outdoor seating. Breakfast and lunch served during the week days and dinner on the weekends. You will feel like you were in Paris. Reasonably price

Almost everyone takes their visitors to the El Corral. It’s plain and simple cooking and is known for its Prime Rib. But they also have other items on the menu. You probably should make a reservation because there’s always a wait list.. The beef is delicious

My favorite thing about this resort is the dining room in the main part of the hotel. After you walk in the front doors go down to the bar and down the steps to the restaurant. My favorite is to go for breakfast and sit out on the outdoor patio. Sweeping views of the Catalina Mountains and the pools in the flowers and the palm trees, it’s just gorgeous. And the food is delicious as well. A little bit pricey But totally worth the relaxed atmosphere and the view. Excellent service.

Hotel Congress is quite historic. John Dillinger was one of its most famous guests. The story of his capture and the arrest is illustrated all along the hallway leading to the bathrooms. They have entertainment every weekend And there is usually a waiting list for the restaurant. Try breakfast or lunch is you tour downtown

Who doesn’t love Trader Joe’s. if you’re up for a walk, turn right out of my cul-de-sac down to the bike path and then turn left. Go under the bridge at Campbell Road and come up to see Trader Joe’s. It’s about a 15 min walk or Five minute bike ride

AJ’s is a bit pricey and the food selections reflect the cost. Excellent meats and seafood and vegetables. They have an outdoor patio that serves grilled food and you can also buy meals inside at the deli counter’s and then eat outside. It has a gorgeous view and the dining is very casual. There’s also a sushi bar inside as well as a small salad bar, deliciously cooked full meals and a sandwich salad pizza menu. It’s on par with a Whole Foods but more locally sourced
