Great "classic" American food (think middle America) with an array of sandwiches and other items. The owner's wife is vegetarian and made sure that the menu has plenty of salads too, but the true draw are things like pastrami (excellent) and cheese curds (a must try -- fried but light) The ice cream is just delicious, almost like a gelato....

We had lunch here on a visit to Tucson. The atmosphere is eclectic and lively. The wait staff were all friendly and helpful. Entrees our group ordered included chicken pot pie, grilled cheese with tomato soup and steak salad. They were all delicious. They roast their own coffee and it was a cut above most coffee shop cups. To top... More

Went to the HUB with group of 5. The beef tater tot appetizer and mac n cheese were perfection. I ordered the pastrami and Swiss sandwich, which was awesome. A couple Blonde Barrio beers 22oz and dinner was feeling and tasting good. Finish with some PISTACHIO ice cream...it's the best! Parking is tough to find with construction. $185 w tip... More

Wanted to get out for good basic meal. It was wonderful. Great selection of draft beer. Fish n Chips superb. Enchiladas best we have had in Arizona. Home made ice cream topped off a most enjoyable meal. Waiter was the best!

Just a hamburger, you know? Arrived mostly raw meat, although I ordered medium well. Back it went, but it did not reemerge before my dining partner had finished his meal. Cancelled the order. Pretty disappointed. In Tucson, I'll stick with Mexican food-you can't go wrong.

Excellent Fish & Chips. I'm always afraid the fish will be all batter and less fish, but not here at the HUB. The Cod was lightly battered and I subbed tator tots for the fries. Can't go wrong with tator tots! Excellent Cole Slaw with it too. My wife had the HUB burger and it was great with a nice... More

Atmosphere is hip and fun. Busy area of downtown. Food is okay kind of pricey burgers. Customer service was very friendly.

Even this otherwise fine eatery has to have off nights. First the good. Eclectic decor of exposed brick, wood floors and high ceiling - check out the upside down table lamps hung up there. Service by Sarah was prompt and courteous. The calamari was fresh and delicious. Daughter 1 had the basic cheese burger, and found it cooked perfectly but... More

We stayed at Hacienda del Sol, but drove to The Hub on my brother's recommendation & were glad we did. Great choices on the menu, good service and really liked the food. We'd definitely return.
