Typical Sonoran mexican food. Excellent Salsa. In our opinion the best salsa in Tucson, but you must like garlic! Reasonable prices, local favorite. 15-20 min drive from Lirios, 10 min drive from Hawthorne.

Neighborhood place. I love their shrimp with green sauce and the shrimp "divoricados" with two sauces, unique and delish. Inexpensive and good margaritas. Go by for Taco Tuesday for $2 tacos! Ceviche tostada w/ shrimp(camarones) or fish (pescado) is a great deal for $5! love the ceviche sauce. Has a gorgeous typical Mexican Mural on the ceiling and walls.

Pub - Craft brewery. I like going here because it has a relaxed friendly vibe like "Cheers". They specialize in Gose, but also have some good stouts/porters and Amber beers, and a few IPAs and Hefe. Taco truck is outside many nights. Its in an industrial park area, but when you go inside its cozy. They have board games and karaoke also.. call or check their schedule online.
