Local Dining at its Best
Who are the Tucson Originals?
We are 35 plus local, independently-owned and operated Tucson restaurants that provide the soul and flavors that define Tucson's sense of place.
The restaurant business is our passion. Our restaurants vary from white tablecloth and upscale casual to sandwich shops and pizza parlors. We live our business, breathe it, work in it and play in it. We love the art of presentation and the look of surprise on your face when our plates come to your table. We strive for perfection in every recipe, every dish and every table setting. We feel it's our duty to support sustainable agriculture and incorporate the freshest local ingredients into our offerings.
