Came in around 12:45, fairly full at exterior, almost no one inside. Food service was slow, after being served saw little of wait staff as she also had to work exterior. Food was fair more similar to fast food joint. Somewhat expensive for the quality.

When we got there, they were busy so we could understand the kitchen being "backed up", but as time went on, it became almost laughable and this was on a Tuesday! I would hate to see what the weekend is like. Besides the problem in the kitchen, the service was very poor. Every table around us was making comments about... More

This would be a great place to hang out at for a burger and beer. I have had their burger's and they are great, the pulled pork and ribs for me is a bit to sweet but still very good. I'm a fan of fries and although these are really good I wish they would come with some sort of... More

in my opinion there are far better places to eat in Tubac. Food is so so, go use the washroom. Then you'll get an idea of what I'm talking about

We were in Tubac for the fabulous art Festival and had lunch here. We were very disappointed..We have eaten here before and it was great, but not so this time. First, the menu was very limited-they would not even let me change the cheese on the burger.We waited 45 minutes for our meal and were ready to leave. Everyone around... More

Our outstanding waitress recommended the ribs. Absolutely outstanding. Have eaten ribs all over the country. These were as good as any and better than most. I will return tomorrow for a burger and pulled pork. They looked too good to resist. Ask for Nancy to wait your table. Great waitress!!!!

In the heart of old town Tubac, an old western town, sits this saloon that belongs there. Casual. good service, high energy and bountiful portions. They have a Thursday all you can eat ribs for $20. We were there during the Art Festival so, because of the crowds, they have a limited menu. The selection is good enough and the... More

Staying at my Brother’s place in Rio Rico and the four of us met two other couples for dinner at Tubac Jack’s. Thursday is “all you can eat ribs” night so we were anticipating a small wait, especially since the Tubac Art Festival was underway. We arrived around 5pm and there were plenty of parking spaces and no wait on... More

We visited Tubak during the major craftfrair in Febraury. It's large and well visited and worth every minute. Lunch at Tubac Jacks. Decent service. Piled pork snadwichnwas good. Bratwurst was mediocre. Moderate cost.

Here you get the true flavor of Tubac locals. The beer is cold but the food is pretty average. The outdoor bar is fun. There aren't a lot of mid priced food options in Tubac so ....

Tubac Jack's, one of the oldest restaurants in Tubac, has an eclectic menu of BBQ, Mexican, and worldwide favorites such as steaks, salmon, salads, burgers, pulled pork and, of course, our world famous green chili stew.

Jack's has a huge patio to enjoy those beautiful southern arizona days and evenings, as well as a full dining room and bar suited for any size party.

We have Johnny Bencomo playing his 18 string guitar every Friday night from 6-9, and a rotating list of bands playing on our patio every Saturday night.

Jack's offers catering for parties large and small, take out, and a huge selection of craft beer and cocktails.
