Visited McGraw's on Houghton for a Friday evening dinner on the patio. View was fantastic across the valley on a perfect evening with a small breeze. Food was excellent burgers, ribs, salsa, fish & chips, and salads. Margaritas were also very tasty - beers were cold and refreshing. Great food, great view, great friends - what more could ask for...

Wonderful evening - the last day of our vacation in Tuscon capped off with a fabulous prime rib dinner. Huge portions. Pleasant and knowledgeable server added to the experience. Can't wait to return!

A very nice outdoor seating area with a good view and the watch out for rattlesnakes sign was interesting. The food is okay, the service was good but it seemed a little on the pricey side. We were there for a late lunch and it would have been a lot better to be there around sunset to take full advantage... More

We love McGraw mainly for its views and sunset. We had the Southwest chicken w/veggies. It was very good. It came with a salad but the waiter forgot about it and brought it with the main meal.. At that time I didn't want it so had to take it home. Prices to us are a little high now that minimum... More

I've been there twice. They have the best artichoke dip I've ever tasted. Staff super friendly. Small selection of beer on tap, but some good ones. Great burger. Pulled pork also good. Seafood probably not your best bet. They are a long way from water, after all.

After having driven by Tucson McGraw's for year we finally stopped in for dinner. We choice a Tuesday evening as they advertise a steak special on Tuesday's. Seating options include the bar, inside tables and booths or a screened-in patio with a view of the valley. Since the evening was a bit cool the ladies opted for inside. No reservations,... More

We have passed McGraw's Cantina on the west side of Houghton Rd many times and always said we should drop in. Well, we finally did and we're very glad we did. We sat out on the south side patio, enclosed with garage-type doors that open in warmer weather. The view south from the ridge is gorgeous. We made a note... More

Best we've had in Tucson! Can get busy on Friday Nights and loud but the meal is worth it! Reservations accepted and servers personable.

It used to be outstanding - now it's just OK. Service is in need of training. It was not busy and the service was extremely slow. The food was average, but their prices were a bit high for their offerings. Doubt if we'll be back.

We had the fish and chip special that was marginal. Very few cold fries and the fish was mostly batter. The pie for desert was excellent but small portion.
