Tucson Qs

DC Chowhounds here. We've been going to Scottsdale for the last few spring breaks. We're mixing it up a bit this year and giving Tucson a look.

Landing on a Saturday in March at 12 Noon. Need a great place for our first taste of mexican/tex-mex/sonoran on our way to the Marriott Starr Pass west of I-10. Must offer sit-down tables and beer. Any suggestions?

Also, would be very interested in a local farmers market that would still be active into the afternoon if there is such a thing.

I will need lunch everyday around this Marriott. Mexican/tex-mex/sonoran all welcomed (which of Mariscos, El Guero, BK Carne, Taqueria Pico de Gallo is nearby?). Great burgers, pizza, etc also welcome (is Zinburger far?).

For dinners, I've planned/reserved the following as what appearrs to be a good representation of Tucson. I also hope none is more than 20 - 25 minutes from Marriott. Let me know if I left out any must-eats. Sat = Cup Cafe, Sun = Feast, Mon = Maynard's Market, Tues = Silver Saddle (I wonder about this one), and Weds = Cafe Poca Cosa.
