New: Sir Veza’s Taco Garage
Sir Veza is a clever wordplay on “cerveza”. Formerly El Charro and before that a failed McMahon Restaurant Group BBQ joint, and before that…my memory is fading. I like the wordplay but “taco garage” just doesn’t get my tastebuds pumping. However, I am probably not the demographic of clientele.
Sir Veza’s menu boasts tacos, burros, burgers, wings, salads, and churros and lots of cerveza and spirits with a car theme such as “Cadillac of tacos,” “car club sandwich,” and “jalapeno hubcap.” Honk! There’s lots more.
Maybe Sir Veza’s is hoping to give Oregano’s, a wildly popular pizza joint which almost always has a crowd of people out front waiting for a table, a bit of competition.
Sir Veza’s is located at 4699 E. Speedway (at Swan). Hours: 8 a.m. to 2 a.m. Saturdays and Sundays, (weekend breakfast buffet), 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Mondays through Fridays; 325-1922.
New menu: Dos Silos Comida Mexicana/Tubac
This restaurant located at the Tubac Golf Resort has updated their menu with hot & spicy oysters, green chile stew with pork carnitas and warm tortillas (I may have to make the trek for that; it’s closer than New Mexico.) You can mix and match tacos and tamales. Tamales offer mouth watering green chile & corn for traditionalists; beef & jalapeno if you want to explore your spicy inner child; and lobster & mango for a tropical tango. Or if you can’t make up your mind — order all three.
If you’re an entree type of person order the chili crusted rib eye steak and garlic crusted seabass. You can check out the desserts yourself; I’m already full writing about this.
Tubac Golf Resort is a beautiful setting. I enjoy just going there and walking the grounds but now I’ll have a bowl of green chile to feed my wannabe New Mexican soul. Tubac Golf Resort & Spa is located at 1 Otero Road in Tubac. Take I-19 south to exit 40 (Chavez Siding Road) and follow signs, 520-398-2678.
