This place is popular among the locals and is a great place to get a Sonoran hot dog. Plenty of other stuff to eat and made fresh for you.

The restaurant just feels like it should be south of the border (and that's a compliment.) Glass-bottle soft drinks, mariachi music (live band) at lunch on Friday, red, white and green colors everywhere, chips and salsa... I really liked it. We will be back.

The Sonoran hot dogs were great and they live up to the hype. Make use of the condiment island. Unlike other places, they have a truly spicy and zesty salsa that does not disappoint. We will definitely come back.

Absolutely the best Sonoran Hot Dog in Tucson. Get the Double and you won't be disappointed. Other Mexican specialties were great. Give it a try when in Tucson. 3 locations around town. You will love it....

My favorite carne asada in town! Great in both taco and burrito form. The salsa bar also has a lot of really good fresh salsas, my favorite is the creamy guacamole sauce thing
