We are taking a last minute road trip through southeast Arizona, mostly the area south of Tucson, around Patagonia and Sahuarita. Any recs from Chowhounders in the area? We love all types of dining, from the small scrappy corner diner to white tablecloth, as long as the food is awesome.

  1. In Patagonia, gourmet pizza at the Velvet Elvis.

    In Sonoita, Steak Out, for So AZ steak fare.

    In Tumacacori, Wisdom's for Mexican (Sonoran). Long established family run resto.

    In Green Valley, Lavenders, for a surprisingly good French in the desert. Upscale, but good!

    Enjoy your travels.

      Thank you! I was beginning to think we would be leap-frogging Dairy Queen's.

          Velvet Elvis has been closed for summer this month. Call before going, not sure when they are re-opening.
