Some of THE BEST Mexican food in Tucson. One of the locations (my favorite) is less than four miles from my vacation rental! Try the Chili Colorado. The happy is wonderful! Great bar and great food deals.

Must visit in downtown old Tucson. Charming atmosphere and good food. Home of the Chimichanga (I think?) Featured on food channel.

This is the oldest restaurant in Tucson. Sadly we only had time to stop for chips, guacamole and margaritas. It was all wonderful. Looked at the menu and plan to go back. Came back this year for happy hour. The happy hour was fantastic with lots of yummy things to try. Still haven't eaten a regular dinner but we're deathly come back just for the happy hour alone.

One of the oldest Mexican restaurants in Southern Arizona. Go to the one Downtown and eat on the patio. Totally worth the stop.

Enjoy authentic Mexican cuisine at El Charro's historic downtown location. Try the carne seca which is air-dried in the hot Arizona sun on the roof of the restaurant.
