Their last day open at their St. Philips location was Thursday, January 13th. They opened the new Acacia just yesterday on Friday, January 14th. They are now located at Gallery Row, 3001 E. Skyline Drive. Find them on the Northeast corner of Skyline and Campbell.
New digs, new menu, same quality food and drink. We had the mahi-mahi tacos with a roasted jalapeno pepper, and calamari tonight. Both were excellent. They have the best view in Tucson, overlooking the city lights from nearly 3000 feet above sea level in the Catalina Foothills.
You will find delicious Mexican cuisine at Cafe Poca Cosa on Pennington Street in downtown Tucson. Upscale, yet casual atmosphere. Friendly, attentive, and informed staff. We recommend the Chef’s sample plate if you visit for lunch.

If you are traveling between Tucson and Phoenix-Scottsdale (or you live in Casa Grande), we highly recommend this efficient, friendly, simple and delicious hamburger restaurant, the renowned In-N-Out Burger in Casa Grande, Arizona. It’s just off I-10 at the new Promenade at Casa Grande.
How simple is this menu? Their food is consistent and delicious. Their service is friendly and fast. And if you remember the “old days”, you will love this place.
If you are a chef, cooking enthusiast, or just like to eat fresh food, then know that there is a great place to pick up fresh produce and eggs – River Road Gardens in Tucson, Arizona.

They are located behind the Waldorf School and across from the Jewish Center. They are open on Saturday’s. The hours during spring are 9:30 am – 12:30 pm. Check their website for summer hours.

The 2010 Palm Springs Desert Resorts Restaurant Week we be held June 4th through the 13th. Promoters are hoping to have at least 100 restaurants participating. Nearly 25,000 diners enjoyed the cuisine from Palm Springs area restaurants last year.
Palm Springs, California is a four hour drive from Phoenix, and only hour and a half from many Southern California beach cities.
We went down to the old western town of Willcox, Arizona today. We drove slowly through town because the Halloween Sheriff was watching. Willcox, Arizona is an historic old western town in Cochise County, Arizona.
While we were there, we stopped and ate at Big Tex Bar-B-Que’s Dining Car Restaurant. It is bigger than it looks. The service and food at this family restaurant were great, and we will be back. We have to admit that we did not have barbeque though. Why? Because I was across the street looking for treasures in a thrift shop, and someone from Louisiana ordered for me. What was ordered? The Special – catfish, fries, and cole slaw (Louisiana dish, of course). It was delicious though, but next time I will do my own ordering. You have to have BBQ at a BBQ place, in my opinion…at least the first visit.
One of the Willcox locals recommended that we stop by Buffalo Sisters Trading Post down the street. It was a cozy shop with antiques, art, furniture and other treasures. But the best part was meeting the wonderful Buffalo Sisters shop owner, Jetty White (also known as Red Elk). She had a shop full of interesting things, and friendly locals that we enjoyed talking to.
We heard some exciting things about Willcox’s Wine Country, and plan on returning during Rex Allen Days and Wings Over Willcox. We left, heading back to Tucson, riding into the Willcox sunset tonight.
