So what type of restaurants will I find on restaurant row. The wife and I are planning our third trip to Tucson this June. We want to see how hot it actually gets in the summer. Is June the hottest month? Monsoon starts in July , right? Would really like to see what the monsoon season is all about but the flights get so expensive in the July time frame we settled on June just to see how hot it actually feels. Getting back to my original thread..... what types of restaurants will I find on restaurant row on Tangue Verde? We will be staying at the Radisson on Speedway. Is that far from Tangue Verde?

Restaurants in Restaurant Row | Metromix Tucson

If you're staying at this Radisson, 6555 East Speedway Boulevard
Tucson, AZ 85710, it's right next door! I believe it's the only one on Speedway, so it has to be it.

brrrinmass,

You'll have a rental car, right? What types of restaurants do you like best? Maybe we can recommend some places (not necessarily in restaurant row).

When I moved to Tucson in 2006, I learned that I'd be living near the Tanque Verde "Restaurant Row". When I arrived, I was disappointed that "Restaurant Row" did not have any higher concentration of restaurants then, say, near the Park Mall on Broadway (there are probably more on Broadway in that area than Tanque Verde). So, I guess, don't get your expectations too high.

But... Trail Dust Town is worth a visit. I hear Jonathan's Cork is good (although I've never been there). The Eclectic Cafe (and the nearby Eclectic Pizza) is pretty good. Le Delice is an awesome place to get pastries. You've got to try Eegees at least once.

He-he, that's true. I've no idea where this moniker came from.

I would hardly call the area with a few restaurants on Tanque Verde Restaurant Row. The name is definitely misleading.

I could not agree more!

The term "Restaurant Row" should require much more than a few average restaurants.

Pinnacle Peak Steak House in Trail Dust Town is the best steak for the money in Tucson. It's not high end, just a good cowboy type steak house with great food. You do need to be sure to wear a tie though.

There's a Trail Dust Steak House in Denver where they have a "trophy" wall for ties. The manager has a HUGE pair of scissors.
