Fan Favorite Taco Restaurant Opens New Location
Tired of the same old taco joints? Been to your favorite local stomps more times than you can count and now you’re craving something new? Well, in Tucson all you have to do is click your heels together three times and a new taco joint appears.

Award Winning Burger Joint Opens Second Location
Burger restaurants tend to perform well when they open. It is a known commodity, and guests have a general understanding of what to expect. It isn’t the introduction of a new culinary style that requires more of an open mind and willingness to try something out of the ordinary.

Hard to tell, but a new burger joint hopes it can avoid the fate of its predecessors.
2 Local Restaurants Are The Best in the Country, According to Yelp
There are a number of “best of” restaurant lists out there. Most are put together by larger publications and industry-backed restaurant groups that, while giving you a nice picture of the top restaurants in the country (or around the world), there is often a heavy influence from restaurant owners and executives. In fact, most “best of” or “best selling” lists have very specific credentials that can elevate a name brand over an outsider. That is why, for many, the best lists are those put together by average individuals who just know what they like. When it comes to the food and beverage industry, all of this is summed up in the annual Yelp top 100 lists. These lists showcase the best-rated and reviewed restaurants in the country. And with the 2023 edition of the list, two Tucson restaurants came out on top.
