This place may be rustic and may be run down, but it is always loaded with locals for good reason. The staff is very pleasant, and the food is freshly made right. Their house made stew is outstanding and the ribs are right. Their process...More

Been here several times before. Disappointed this time. Out of several items on menu and service very slow and inattentive. Sat for 10 minutes with empty glass. No waiter in sight.

It's been a while since we were here last, but nothing has changed....and that's good.The decor is genuine rustic, the service is excellent and their mussels and mushroom burger were very good. We'll see them again in the near future.

There was a special limited menu for the Spring Artwalk. However, some of us enjoyed HUGE burgers, some of us enjoyed quesadillas and some of us enjoyed burritos! Everything was good and was served with a smile. Lots of seating indoors and outdoors.

My friends and I spent the day at the shops and stopped in for a bite at Tubac Jack's. The hamburgers were great and steak fries were an added bonus.

This place has a limited menu, hard working wait staff, and mediocre food. Not even the chips and salsa were tasty. The brats were 2/3 the size of the bun, and salad was overpriced for the ordinariness. Drinks, such as wine, are in plastic cups.
