Restaurant Recs for South Tucson

Attending the Gem Show this week and would appreciate any restaurant recs for South Tucson. Staying at Econolodge on 6th Ave. off I-10. Walking distance would be helpful.

  1. Try Sachiko for Sushi or great Japanese fare...on Valencia near the airport.
    One of our favorites...always fresh...very friendly!
    Try the Black Cod in!

    1. Mi Nidito is always a place we visit. It's at 1813 S 4th Ave - don't know what kind of walking shape you're in, but that wouldn't be too far for me.

      1. I had an excellent lunch at Rigo's, at 4th Avenue and 36th St. (NE corner), two weeks ago. Catty-corner, across the intersection, Crossroads is good. Pico de Gallo--not sure of the address, but I think it's on 6th, a few blocks north of I-10--is very good,and a bit different. None of these places are fancy or expensive; the first two are, however, table service restaurants--although both have all you can eat buffets--and Pico de Gallo is an order at the counter and find a seat kind of place.

        I'm not a Mi Niditio fan; partly it's the wait (always long), but mostly it's the fact that I've never found the food to be worth the wait.

        I haven't been to the Sachiko on the southside, but the other branches are very good.

        Have fun.

        1. Just wanted to second the recommendation for Mi Nidito. We ate there a few months ago and everyone really enjoyed their meal.

          1. Alfonso's Carnitas Jalisco on South 6th.
