Diner Reviews
  • "Decided last minute to have my daughter drive 2 hours to Tucson for dinner. She needed the nightime driving hours. Randomly picked OPG from reviews on Open Table. My daughters loved the Mac and cheese. The corn muffins were different - not bad just not tasty. My youngest teenage daughter had the burger which she loved. I had the BBQ sampler with short ribs and ribs. The beef short rib (sampler came with 1) was delicious and tender. The ribs were dry and drenched in BBQ sauce (I assume to moisten the ribs). I are only one. The beans were bland. I didn't eat much of my food. The waiter didn't ask if I had an issue with my food (even when I denied wrapping a full plate of food to go). The prickly pear marguarita recommended was too sugary."

  • "Quick and friendly service. The Cuban sandwich was delicious and filling. Lived the salsa and chips. Plenty of ice tea refills."

  • "My family and I went to this location for a birthday lunch. It was pretty warm inside when we were seated. The waiter came over and took our order when the entire party arrived. At this time I was enjoying conversations with my family when I noticed one of the cooks went out to the smoker and was wearing a "Joe's Crab Shack" t-shirt. This is a negative advertising for this location since it was Old Pueblo Grille. The the waiter came to our table and told a member of my party that the cooks didn't know how to make a Smoked Chicken Relleno which is on the menu and that it would take a bit longer to get another dish to him. Well he got the smoked chicken relleno, but I was a bit dissatisfied with hearing that they didn't know how to make it."

  • "An old time favorite in Tucson, the Old Pueblo Grill is a jewel of a restaurant. The menu is truly Southwest with many unusual, somewhat exotic, but very tasty items. Great for a romantic dinner, or for a family celebration."

  • "Old Pueblo has been our favorite for a number of years. The bar is a great place for early dinner and drinks. The five-dollar appetizers are a great value. The food is consistently good, with several unique dishes such as the Sonoran chicken Parmesan; The macaroni and cheese is exceptional."

  • "We are regular customers to Old Pueblo and this time around was no different than the others. The hostess was kind enough to take the special request of wishing my fiancé a happy birthday upon our arrival. Once seated we were immediately met with our server and had our drinks. For a Friday it was not too packed, so the food came out quickly and was delicious as always. I greatly recommend the chipotle fries to anyone who hasn't tried them. Great food at a great price in an atmosphere that's always inviting."

Our service person was very professional yet approachable and we enjoyed the food, the desserts and the ambiance (except for the crying baby next to our booth, but that can't be helped, I understand)."

  • "A small group of us, eight, met to 'catch up' after a lot of years. The room with a round table and eight chairs would have been perfect except the reverberation in the room made it impossible to talk. The staff very nicely placed us elsewhere at our request...the food was good, the service wonderful, but being in a room by ourselves took away from the ambience of being at the Old Pueblo Grille. I think four or fivew people could be more easily accommodated and would have a great time. "

  • "Old Pueblo Grill [OPG] is a long time favorite of ours in Tucson. We have been going to OPG for decades to celebrate all types of occasions. Our latest occasion was to get together with dear family members from Northern California that were passing through town that we had not seen in almost eight years. Paco, our waiter, did a great job with our table. He did not push us to order as he could see that we were busy getting caught up on all that had happened in our lives since the last time we had seen one another. The appetizer sampler plate that we ordered was plentiful and all items were very tasty. The food that we all ordered was beautiful to the eye and very tasty to our palates. Thanks OPG for another special time!"

  • "In our opinion, Pueblo Grill is one of the restaurant gems in Tucson. It has a wonderful ambiance and is elegant, but not too formal. The staff is always pleasant, friendly, courteous, polite and professional. We've eaten at the Pueblo Grill multiple times over the years. Any meal we've had has been excellent and we've never been disappointed."

  • "What a beautiful old style place - I was really excited to dine upon recommendation from a client. Bar service was great, appetizers were good. We asked for outside seating as the evening weather was very nice and the front patio looked beautiful. We left the bar and broke up a group employee conversation at the hostess desk - awkward! Dinner arrived - steaks were cooked correctly. The food lacked seasoning and needed a serious dose of artistic plating. I would guess our server had little or no experience. She seemed uncomfortable and annoyed. I would guess there was not a manager on duty and/or the manager that night was as young as the staff and is working among friends. I will not be dining at OPG again."

  • "This was our first time at Old Pueblo Grille. We WILL be back!! The food was GREAT. Our waiter took the time to explain the menu/ give recommendations. I had the Mac and Cheese w/ Hatch Green Chiles I love Mac and Cheese. This was up there at the top of my list as one of my favorites! We had the pulled pork. You could tasted the smokey favor in the pork as they smoke a lot of the meats. Someone else tried the enchiladas. They thought they were good - also tasting the smokiness of the beef! OH! And my Prickly Pear Margarita was just right. Some places make it way too sweet. Can't wait to go back and tried the Pot Roast. It sounds amazing. And eat outside on the Patio. It looks like such a fun place to enjoy a nite out."

  • "6:45 reservation, we arrived 10 minutes early and seated immediately. The restaurant was great, clean, decor and such. However the front dining room was almost empty and no parking was available. We had to park across the street. Drinks were very good from the bar. My guest had ordered fajitas, we were all surprised that when they were served, the girdles were not "sizzling hot". Admittedly, the food was cooked and very tasteful. I had the Carne Asada, it was very tasteful, however a bit dry. I am assuming that the kitchen was occupied with a large group in a banquet room, and maybe our food was not served as quickly as it should have been. I would go again someday and try something different"

  • "Thank you for the very pleasant lunch I had with my assistant yesterday. First and formost the food and service was very good. We were able to enjoy each other's company and salute the great work my assistant does for me everyday. The extra benefits on the side were: 1) my assistant got an email reminder of the special day which saved me from forgetting 2) I was able to quickly make an online reservation 3) We saw some business associates and some local celebraties (Corey Willaims) and 4) Best of all I got one free entree.

  • "I love this place and go there often for both lunch and dinner, and take out-of-town guests there as a favorite spot. Haven't been in the bar, so can't give that a rating though it's probably great also. I like that there aren't kids there often as it's quieter and makes me want to stay longer, such as coming early for drinks and appetizers and staying after dinner for coffee and dessert. We don't do that at a lot of places because of the amount of small and LOUD children present. The wait staff is always excellent and the food first rate. Hope the Old Pueblo Grille stays around for a long, long time!"

  • "We dined on a Friday evening (at 6:15). We were seated immediately. The waiter took a drink order and returned with the drinks (Martini's) without olives and was surprised when we asked for olives. Instead of allowing us a few minutes to enjoy our drink, the waiter thought we would order immediately. We asked him to come back in 10 minutes. He did. Food arrived by a different wait staff who was very friendly and accommodated a few special requests. The food was excellent, as was the guacamole we ordered. Dessert was shared and also very good. Overall--food great. Service mediocre. Hostess--standing doing nothing---did nothing to acknowledge or thank us as we left. We will be back--solely for the food, not for the service"
