Los Nopales serves very good, inexpensive Mexican food. The service is friendly and family oriented. The location is on the road to the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and Old Tucson Movie Studios. Stop by when you visit one of the attractions.

Good place to stop on the way back to town from the Desert Museum. Small and nothing fancy, but comfortable, casual, friendly atmosphere and inexpensive tasty (though not particularly healthy) food.

I did not see pizza on the menu. This is a Mexican food restaurant so I doubt it. They do have take out though.
