This place has a limited menu, hard working wait staff, and mediocre food. Not even the chips and salsa were tasty. The brats were 2/3 the size of the bun, and salad was overpriced for the ordinariness. Drinks, such as wine, are in plastic cups.

First visit to Tupac - what a marvelous little community...galleries, jewelry, pottery, gifts, and fun restaurants - what fun! Tubac Jack's is a perfect place to rest a bit, have a beverage...and relax. Before enjoying more of what Tupac offers.

Absolutely the perfect stop for a light lunch while visiting in Tubac. Convenient, great food (the Green Chile Stew and Southwest Salad were fabulous!), friendly staff, and very reasonable prices. So glad we stopped!
