We come here on all our visits to Tucson. We managed two meals on this trip. Nothing fancy or pretentious at Lerua's, just good food. We had (twice!) a sweet potato taco dish that was both unusual and wonderful. Never saw anything like it anywhere...More

We always make this our final stop when in Tucson. Having lunch and grabbing a bunch of tamales to take home. They have an interesting menu. Different than your usual mexican restaurant. Small place, so might need to look at off hours.
