Any tips on where to eat lunch and dinner in Tucson?
Thanks

    We really enjoyed our dinner at Jax Kitchen when we visited in March. For lunch, Beyond Bread is a local bakery cafe, not exactly a novel concept, but they do it exceptionally well for what it is.

        Blue Willow is a nice place for brunch.

            The Sunday buffet at Loew's Ventana Canyon resort was pretty amazing last month. Had a pretty spectacular barbecue (and I don't say that lightly - the personable chef is from KC and he served some of the best ribs I've ever had) in addition to the usual high-line brunch and dessert stuff. Oh, and all-you-could-drink of three local microbrews. It was $32/person, and - in all seriousness - I've been thinking about flying back to stay over Saturday through Monday just to have more of those ribs, brews and grilled poblano peppers.

            Judging from the enormous line that formed, I'd advise making reservations for 11 a.m. and arriving after a one-day fast (to make sure you have adequate room). And please do not make the tactical error that I made by filling up my plate first with breakfast stuff before meandering outside to see if the barbecue is any good. (A tragic error that I still regret, a month later.)
