Tubac Jack's Restaurant and Saloon

Located in the heart of Tubac, AZ you will find a southwestern restaurant and saloon known as Tubac Jack's.  The owner, Jim Lagattuta, takes pride in his original and one-of-a-kind meals.  You will have an array of choices to dine on while sitting in their warm and inviting restaurant.  Be sure to visit Tubac Jack's on a Saturday night and enjoy a live band.  You can dance to your hearts content.  I had chicken strips and sweet potato fries while my sister-in-law enjoyed one of their taco salads.  The food was delicious and worth a visit.

Soto's PK Outpost Mexican Restaurant

Facebook page:  https://www.facebook.com/Sotospkoutpost
While I was recently in Tubac, AZ, I wanted Mexican food for dinner.  My sister-in-law and I picked the Soto's PK Outpost Mexican Restaurant because it was just around the corner from the Poston House Inn where we were staying.  The restaurant is located in a historic building and is known for their delicious Carne con Chile.  We sat on the patio because the weather was nice and cool.  While waiting for our margaritas, we were serenaded by their Mariachi band.  We enjoyed the entertainment, food, margaritas, and the whole atmosphere of the place.

Interesting Chimichanga with a mango Margarita.
