Gastro Pub
At Culinary Dropout, raise your glass to friends coming together. A place where food and music are life. Join us at happy hour for ice cold beer and our famous soft pretzels with provolone fondue. At dinner, a signature cocktail and slow braised 36-hour pork ribs are a perfect pair. While you and your crew enjoy damn good food and drinks, a local band plays live for great vibes. Come hang out and stay a while.

    We arrived earlier than reservation for Mothers day, but was able to be seated right away. Food and drinks are always very fresh and taste delicious. Service was attentive even with the restaurant very busy for Mday.

    Celebrating Mother's Day or any holiday is a blast at Tucson Culinary Dropout! Began the meal with the Deviled Eggs, love these! The special, Short Rib and Lobster Risotto was so delicious with perfectly cooked Short Rib meat and Lobster. Also loved the M.L.F. Spritz which was so refreshing. As always, the service was top notch, a real team effort to make a happy experience. Highly recommend Tucson Culinary Dropout.

    Made a reservation but got seated in the bar area and waited nearly 10 min until we flagged someone down to be our waitress. She was nice but it was clear that we didn’t have a waitress assigned to our table and she volunteered to take our order. Food was good but it was loud with lots of background noise. Probably not going back.

    Been coming here every time we’re in Tucson (5-6x a year) Got seated at 12:35pm at the time of our reservation and our waitress was very nice and happy. The pretzel and cheese appetizer was delicious. The fish and chips and hamburger was amazing. The Asian slaw salad and Turkey pastrami was just ok. My only complaint was that tables who were seated after us got their food before us. It was 52 mins from the time we ordered before we got our food. That is a long time to wait and I’d say a quarter of the tables were empty. Our waitress told us it would be soon a few times and we just waited. Nothing we could really do and it was almost 2pm.

    We have had great experiences here in the past but this time was not. The good order was messed up and one entree didn’t arrive until everyone was finished. I think they were just overwhelmed with graduation weekend. With the prices, expected more.
