We were so anxious to try this place out when we first move to the area. There were 5 of us (4 adults / 1 kid) and all of us were so disappointed with the food / service / condition of the restaurant. Half way thru our meal our 9 year old suggested we go out for pizza. We looked... More

I am wheat-free so ate a mushroom topped burger that was to be medium...it had more than enough pink in it; not many French fries served on this plate compared to others. Artichoke dip was tried by 7 people and seemed good. Baby back ribs were okay. The biggest complaint from 3 at the table was the fish taco special... More

We had a great meal here. Didn't quite know what to expect, as the reviews are up and down. Our server was very pleasant and friendly, as we're all the staff. I had Tri-tip, which is slices of grilled beef with Au ju. It was very tender and delicious. The sweet potato fries were very good, as well. My wife... More

An attempt has been made to improve the patio ambiance, making the valley view more enjoyable. Service was friendly as usual, and this patio atmosphere is unique, due to visitations of the notorious roadrunners. We always recommend the Tucson grilled cheese, always tasty and rewarding. Burgers and sandwiches are fine. Margaritas are above average---and there is a full bar, and... More

We have been here twice, once for lunch and again for dinner. The restaurant is placed on a hill overlooking the southeast valley looking towards the Santa Rita's. Very nice view. For lunch we shared a tri-tip sandwich and fries. The sandwich was fine. It was listed on the menu as coming dressed with lettuce, onion and tomato, but there... More

My wife and I ate here with our youngest son. I had the chicken sandwich which was a bit dry and a tad bland. The view is excellent.

Were exploring Tucson with friends from Australia; didn't want another fast food meal. Suddenly saw the sign as we were traveling up Houghton Road. It's been there for a long time, so that usually is a good sign. Meal didn't disappoint, friend enjoyed a "delicious" burger - less bun, guys said the BLT's weren't bad, and I really enjoyed my...

The atmosphere was something straight out of the west, like perhaps the 1800's, and the ribs were from a starved animal and slightly over-cooked. Although it is not heaven it is not it's counterpart either, there is a nice view looking back west toward the city, with all said it wasn't as bad as it could be.

We were the only two people there and they got one meal wrong. The food that was served was at best poor, however tur turn off for us was the place was filthy. We had a dirty table by a window which was a slider type and the tracts were filled with dead bugs. That was better than the live... More

Wonderful service from our waitress, and fabulous views from the patio, especially when there's a summer monsoon rolling in. Our family especially enjoyed the Heart Attack Burger, Southwest Grilled Cheese, Smothered Tri-Tip Special, and the Top Sirloin. Even our picky eaters were happy! We hadn't stopped in to Tucson McGraw's in well over a year. We won't wait that long... More
