We were in Tubac for the fabulous art Festival and had lunch here. We were very disappointed..We have eaten here before and it was great, but not so this time. First, the menu was very limited-they would not even let me change the cheese on the burger.We waited 45 minutes for our meal and were ready to leave. Everyone around... More

Our outstanding waitress recommended the ribs. Absolutely outstanding. Have eaten ribs all over the country. These were as good as any and better than most. I will return tomorrow for a burger and pulled pork. They looked too good to resist. Ask for Nancy to wait your table. Great waitress!!!!

In the heart of old town Tubac, an old western town, sits this saloon that belongs there. Casual. good service, high energy and bountiful portions. They have a Thursday all you can eat ribs for $20. We were there during the Art Festival so, because of the crowds, they have a limited menu. The selection is good enough and the... More

Staying at my Brother’s place in Rio Rico and the four of us met two other couples for dinner at Tubac Jack’s. Thursday is “all you can eat ribs” night so we were anticipating a small wait, especially since the Tubac Art Festival was underway. We arrived around 5pm and there were plenty of parking spaces and no wait on... More

We visited Tubak during the major craftfrair in Febraury. It's large and well visited and worth every minute. Lunch at Tubac Jacks. Decent service. Piled pork snadwichnwas good. Bratwurst was mediocre. Moderate cost.

Here you get the true flavor of Tubac locals. The beer is cold but the food is pretty average. The outdoor bar is fun. There aren't a lot of mid priced food options in Tubac so ....

We've been to Tubac Jack's on previous annual trips to Tubac, just for lunch, however, this year, we have gotten there for dinner three times. The first was a cold January Thursday night for their rib dinner. All you can eat, mesquite-smoked ribs in choice of sauce, comes with baked potato and pinto beans. Service is friendly and fast.

This place has a fun atmosphere about it and has great food! My husband & I had BBQ pork sandwiches- YUM! We would have come back for dinner for BBQ ribs as they had a special running, but we wanted to try Elvira's.

Ribs were very good and so tender they fell off the bone. We liked them with additional bbq sauce on them. My partner had their famous soup and really enjoyed it, but he does like quite a bit of spicy heat in his food. Between his cup of soup and our full order of ribs, it was a very adequate... More
