A couple of nights in Tucson

rob133 | May 9, 2008 05:37 PM

I am going to be in Tucson for a few days later in the month and was hoping for a little advice on good places ot eat in the evenings. I am staying at the University Marriot but spending my days downtown (somewhere near West Paseo Redondo and West Alameda street). My initial searches tell me that I might have to eat downtown before heading back to the hotel in the evening if I want more than a quick bite?

I'm sure I will stop into the frog'n'firkin at some point (but most likely for beer not food!) but I would like at least one night with some decent food, a nice relaxing atmosphere and a few beers to relax.

I've tried to do a little research so any opinions on Barrio / Casa Vicente / Maya Quetzal ? Or any other places that you recommend. I always like to try and find an Indian restarount but so far haven't come up with one? I would typically steer clear of Italian and Chinese places and like to head for more Spanish / Greek style, Mexican / Southwestern even BBQ if any stand out in your mind.

If someone recommends a decent kebab/gyro place that would be great as I know a few after dinner beers will make me hungry. I appreciate any ideas and suggestions, got three nights (and potentially a couple of lunches) to fill.
