Ordered take out last night. The Ranch 47 is amazing. The staff was very friendly. If I lived in the area I'd eat at Blue Adobe all the time.

We took my in-laws for lunch and everyone enjoyed their meal. I recommend the carne asavado(sp?) full of flavor. Big portions so leftovers for lunch tomorrow. The Mesa Margarita was delicious but filling. Our server Brenden was attentive and friendly. Great service and great food.

Had heavy rain so the hosted had to put up with the staff making fun of her red rain boots. Their salsa was fantastic. The chimichanga was super huge. The carne adovada was super flavorful.

Stopped here after a spring training game on our way back to Tucson. We had the adobo ribs, loved them and took the ample leftovers home for another dinner. Great food, very nice service, and good margaritas - what more could you ask.
