We had dinner and a margarita at Wisdoms last Saturday. The margaritas are always a treat. I added pomegranate to mine. Yummy! We had flautas, tortilla soup, and a peaches and cream fruit burro for dessert. All excellent. And there was a guy playing guitar and singing in the bar area. Quite enjoyable. We never miss going to Wisdoms when... More

We found this little hideaway (look for the two big chickens in the front of the building). If a friend had not told us about it we would have missed it. The food was good and the dessert was even better. We got a shirt because of the cool name and the wonderful memory. The staff was friendly. I liked... More

As always, this place has great food and "killer" margaritas! (Unless you plan to spend the night, one is plenty). There typically is a line of patrons to get in when they open at 5:00 so plan accordingly.

We went on 2 for Tuesday margaritas night. We were seated right away with a reservation. We went with people who come here on a regular basis so it seemed like people knew each other, my sister-in-law and daughter ended up behind the bar goofing and "helping" mix the pot of margaritas. The guacamole was tasty and the bacon wrapped... More

You walk past a large ceramic chicken into a rustic, dimly lit interior. You sense you are going back in time. Despite the fact that there were no tourist busses parked outside it was busy even though it was later part of lunch time. Service was a bit slow. It was the first time we remembered paying for the traditional... More

We went to Wisdom's Cafe, famous for their fruit burrito. The waitress sat us outside, very nice. We ordered and the waitress asked, as she was walking toward the kitchen, if we wanted chips and salsa. My friend Don thought it was strange to throw it over her shoulder and asked,"Does it charge extra?" Yes, $5.95! So we decided we... More

Great food and fruit burritos! Convenient location to a great historical site, shopping, and a golf course. We have been there four times, and it is always great food.

Took friends from the UK for Mexican food dinner. Visited Tumacacori mission then got in line. Tuesday is 2 for 1 Margherita night. If you're on their email, you get an email code for 2 for 1 Margherita on Thursday or 2 for 1 fruit burro. Food was excellent. Chips & salsa is a starter now. I had a combo... More

Located a couple miles south of Tubac, this old restaurant serves up some great Mexican food. It's very busy during the winter season, but worth the wait! We love the burritos, enchiladas, and fish tacos.They use turkey instead of chicken, which I prefer, but everything we've tried has been very good. If you choose to have their deep fried Mexican...
