We've been serving our local guests, our sightseeing tourist friends and hungry travelers right outside Saguaro National Park since 1956. We feature fun food for the whole family in a beautiful pleasant setting with wildlife and desert beauty right outside our windows. We're now open at 8am for weekend breakfast every Saturday and Sunday. Great new breakfast/brunch menu sure to please your entire group! Plus we have great music on the patio Thursday through Saturday. We feature a great craft beer selection including taster flights!

“Funky little place with a view of the desert serving tasty food”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

This restaurant is located very close to the entrance to Saguaro National Park- Rincon Mountain District East, not to be confused with the other part of the park on the west side of Tucson. It appears to be a stopping and refueling point for area bicyclists. It is decorated with old license plates and other memorabilia and is open for lunch and dinner. I opted for comfort food and ate spicy green chili meat loaf and cheddar mashed potatoes. Yum. The soup of the day was black bean and ham soup that was as good as anything I can make and believe me I am very fussy. There are Mexican dishes, taco, enchiladas, tamale pie, fajitas and others reported they were good. I want to go back and have the chicken enchiladas.

“Great Happy Hour”
Reviewed 18 February 2014 via mobile

We arrived early and things were slow but visitors picked up briskly as the afternoon wore on. $1 tacos and $2 beers were a treat.

“No Disappointments Here”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

We are new to the area and stopped by on a weeknight to see how well we would like the place.
The server was excellent! We told him we had not been there before and had several recommendations. He knew how each dish was prepared and served. The meals were of good size and were very hot when brought to the table. There were several choices so it was difficult to narrow it down to one meal. I can't wait to go back and try something else.
You won't go wrong eating here.

Reviewed 12 February 2014

Enjoyed the selection of tacos - nicely done! We loved seeing so many of the local birds in the area behind the restaurant through all the picture windows. Good service, too!
