Stopped for lunch on Black Friday. The restaurant was very busy. The very pleasant waitress took our drink order and wanted us to know the kitchen was extremely busy so food would take a little longer than normal. Food did take a little longer than normal, but she checked with us, refreshed drinks and kept us updated. My taco salad... More

My parents, who live in Tubac, we're looking forward to taking me to this place on a Friday night. We evidently caught them on a bad night. My mom and I had the green chile stew, one of the specialties, which my mother said in the past was excellent. Unfortunately, the recipe must've changed for tonight, as it was salty... More

Sri, I'm so sorry your experience was not up to your expectations or our usual standards. I want to assure you we did not change the recipe for the stew, but clearly someone goofed. I hope the next time you're visiting you'll come back and give us another chance. Please ask for me or my manager so we can make... More

Inside and outside seating provides a relaxing atmosphere. Good menu with interesting food items. This place can get quite busy on weekends and in the evening. Easier to get good service and food served during lunch time. They often have live music on the weekend evenings.

We went to Tubac Jack on a lark--just an impulse to try it. We are very glad that we did so. It was relaxing outside court, and the food was very good. We expect to go back many times. The green chili stew, salmon, ribs, and burgers were very good.

Okay to order steak or cheeseburgers if you like it prepared well done. Husband ordered Cowboy Steak first, got it back well when he ordered medium rare. Second try, after taking the steak back, was the cheeseburger. Once again, well done. But, my salmon was pretty good and good atmosphere and margarita. There was a guitar player that evening, which... More

We loved their green chili stew. Very unique and yummy! The service was friendly and prompt. The place has a Mexican cantina feel. Would recommend!

The ribs are smoked on-site and are fall-off-the-bone delicious and they even have an all-you-can eat special. The onion rings are crisp and colossal and the chicken wings delicious. Armando, our server, was delightful and proudly showed us his paintings on the walls of the restaurant.

We had advance arrangements with the restaurant for a Saturday afternoon lunch for 17 people. Clearly, the size of our group was rather overwhelming for a restaurant more accustomed to two and four-top arrangements. They seated us at the back of the restaurant in a somewhat isolated area at four separate tables. The seating was okay, although not what was... More
