    Several of the higher-end places will be open. What are you looking for? Or you can go to Cocos or Dennys!

      Hi. What higher end places??? We definitely do not want Cocos and Denny's if it can be helped!
      Also what Chinese restaurants are the best as sometimes they are open.
      Thanks for any suggestions!!

        Panda Buffet on Tucson and Broadway will be open on Christmas - I saw that in passing a few days ago.

          Why not check on Open Table? Maynard's or Cup Cafe might be good bets.

            Pastiche is open for Christmas. You can check the Xmas menu on their website and use open table to book.

            Gee's should be good for Dim Sum on Sunday.

            Pastiche Modern Eatery
            3025 N Campbell Avenue, Tucson, AZ 85719

            Gee's Garden Restaurant
            1145 N Alvernon Way, Tucson, AZ 85712

              Thank you DriverPhil!! And everyone.

              Have a great Christmas!

              If anyone else sees this, what are considered best Chinese in Tucson if this exists? What about sushi or Vietnamese???

                I'd suggest you start new board items for Chinese, Vietnamese, etc - after you look at prior discussions on the Tucson restaurant scene that is.
