We had the privilege of being invited to the “Family and Friends” event at the NEW eegee’s in the shopping center, in the SE corner of Orange Grove and Oracle today. Great food and a wonderful friendly staff. Some of our “Arizona Photographer” photos are displayed inside, so stop on in and enjoy great food and service, and interesting photos.
We stopped in Rincon Market recently and had a delicious “Miller’s Melt” sandwich and a salad. Both were fresh and tasty. The atmosphere there at The Village at Sam Hughes (where Rincon Market is located) is interesting and comfortable. Just a minute or two from the University of Arizona in Tucson.
People were out at La Encantada Shopping Center in Tucson’s Catalina Foothills tonight enjoying food and drinks. University of Arizona Head Football Coach Mike Stoops was one of them. There are several places to eat and drink, including RA Sushi, North, Armitage Wine Lounge & Café, Blanco Tacos and Tequila, Firebird’s Wood Fired Grill, Red Velvet Cupcakery, Frost, and AJ’s Fine Foods (where they have a nice fireplace outside).
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 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 have fresh produce, herbs, eggs and even edible flowers for your salads. The chickens that produce the eggs are right there for you to see.
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.

“Originally from Guadalajara, Mexico, Emma Yolanda Vera, was inspired, along with husband, Seth, to open and operate the original Guadalajara Grill in Tucson, Arizona. Since 2002, The Guadalajara Grill has been offering a wide variety of Mexican favorite dishes and innovative fresh dishes that keep our customers coming back.”
We had friends recommend the Guadalajara Grill as a place for great food, service and entertainment. Our only regret is that we did not visit sooner. The food and service is excellent. What is really great is that the staff comes to your table and prepares fresh table-side salsa. You get to decide on the ingredients – garlic, tomatoes, onions, cilantro, jalapeno peppers, and more. You get to taste test to see if you want it more hot or less hot. We get the works and have it caliente (hot). Great place!
