Restaurants in Tucson, AZ

Tucson is paradise for lovers of Mexican food. Its highlights include spectacular tamales of every imaginable type from the Tucson Tamale Company, Sonoran hot dogs from corner street carts in South Tucson, pico de gallo fruit cups sprinkled with lime and chile powder, zesty shrimp dishes at Mariscos Chihuahua, towering Topopo salads, utterly inventive and kaleidoscopically beautiful fare at The Little One, and a full repertoire of vegetarian and vegan dishes at a bustling beacon called Tumerico. But there’s much to eat in Tucson beyond great Mexican food, including mighty sweet roll breakfast at Gus Balon’s, S’mores French toast and duck confit hash at Prep & Pastry, hand-crafted ice cream at Hub Ice Cream Factory, and impeccably fresh loaves and pastries at a bakery/restaurant called Beyond Bread.
