I'll be visitng Tucson sometime in October and I have two restaurant questions...

1)---Who serves the best breakfast in Tucson, and French toast in particular?

2)--Where can I get a good prime rib and/or porterhouse steak for $15.00-$25.00 or so?

Thanks!!!

El Corral is known for their Prime Rib. Nice casual dining place in an old territorail style building, been around forever. They also have porterhouse. Centrally located @ River/Campbell.

Pinnacle Peak is also excellent for a steak. Very casual, kinda of loud cowboy steak house. Both places are part of the same company, just totally different atmoshpere. Located near Tanque Verde/Sabino in NE Tucson.

You can get a great meal at either place for the money you are talking about. Not including adult beverages.

I'd recommend Millie's Pancake Haus for the answer to question #1. Right across from Pinnacle Peak on Tanque Vede and Pima area.

Flemings on Sunrise / Campbell is really nice (though upscale). Go to Costco (or look online) first and buy the restaurant cards at discount.

I'm partial to the French toast at Mimi's Cafe on the east side of Oracle Road in front of the Tucson Mall. It's not the best I've ever had, but the best I've had in Tucson. The Crying Onion in the strip mall at the NE corner of Orange Grove Road and Thornydale has good food for both breakfast and lunch. Funky and always busy. Most of the Jerry Bob's diners I've been in served a reliable breakfast for not much money. It's a local chain, so there are a lot of them around. In the NW suburb alone, they're at Oracle Rd., La Canada Dr., and Cortaro Farms Rd.

I grill steak at home. As you see, I'm more inclined to eat breakfast out.

Millie's Pancake House, across the street from Pinnacle Peak in Tanque Verde RD, AKA restaurant road, they specialize in pancakes as the name says but they do have a very good french toast too, when steak is the choice I do second RickTucsonHomes Pinnacle Peak has the best T-bone/porterhouse steaks and in your price range!!

If I were looking for a dinner house where steak and/or prime rib and/or porterhouse were a little pricier ($25.00-$30.00 or even higher), what other restaurants would merit consideration?

Thanks for any tips!

Default Best steakhouse in Tucson.

Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar would be my 1st choice, but I enjoy many other places in town as well.

McMahon's Steakhouse is probably the only one I have been avoiding for years, due to very disappointing 1st visit.

Agreed on McMahon's - I have been there exactly once and I have no intention to return.

The food (especially the steak which should have been the best thing on the menu given that it is a STEAK house) was sub-par at best, the service was OK(ish) and even with a two-for-one coupon we left feeling like we spent way too much for the meal and service we had received.

The highlight of the night was a tie between a truly excellent glass of wine and the guy at the table next to us trying to impress his "date" with gifts. We saw that "couple" again in the parking lot as we left and she was, um... thanking him.

Was going to recommend Chad's across the street but it closed. Figures the worse one is still open.
