Restaurant Suggestions – The Desert – 2019

Barb Solem2019, Art Retreat in the Desert, dining, The Desert - 2019, Vivi Magoo Presents Art Retreats and Other Inspirations4 Comments

There are a lot of really good restaurants in the vicinity of the Hilton Tucson-East hotel, and we’d like to share our favorites with you. All are within the radius of the free hotel shuttle, and all are tried-and-true by us. We’ll arrange two outings during the retreat so we can eat together away from the hotel – and if you’d like to go out on other nights with your friends, we think these would be fun and delicious options.

VIVI MAGOO RECOMMENDATIONS

MEXICAN

El Sur Mexican Restaurant– our go-to place for Mexican food when we’re in Tucson!  Authentic, but NOTHING FANCY! 

Calle Tepa Mexican 

Street Taco and Beer Company

Poco and Mom’s(they have two locations – Kolb is only open for breakfast and lunch; Tanque Verde serves dinner too.)

MEDITERRANEAN

Shish Kabob House of Tucson(We love this restaurant! Jordanian/Turkish/Middle Eastern – extensive menu, and everything we’ve tried has been delish!)

ASIAN

Miss Saigon(Another one of  our favorites! We especially love their Pho soups)

Sachiko Sushi

AMERICAN – CASUAL

Holy Smokin’ Butts

Texas Roadhouse–  a chain, but it’s fun, and the food is good. Lively – good bar – lots of energy in this place!

Monkey Burger

SANDWICHES

Beyond Bread– (We eat here a lot – delicious – great menu)

ITALIAN – CASUAL

Sauce Pizza and Wine

Serial Grillers AZ
