Quick Tucson recommendation? Sat, 03/9/13 11:28 AM (permalink)
My parents are in Tucson (U of A campus area) today and would like a suggestion for dinner.  My dad's a meat-and-potatoes guy so they're not really looking for anything strictly regional, but rather something with a somewhat varied menu (Italian/good pizza's OK).  Thanks!

    There is a place near the campus called La Parilla Suiza.  It isn't strictly regional cuisine, but it is delicious and has a sort of southwestern flair.  The original restaurant is in Mexico City.

      The Trident Grill spitting distance from the U, a retired Navy Seal Team 6 Man, owns it, best bar food I've ever had. It's on Speedway.
