A nice lunch menu with good service. A blend of typical lunch items, some with a southwestern influence. The location is ideal for lunch while shopping in Tubac village.

Looked forward to Shelby's Bistro. What a disappointment. Had a chicken salad wrap. Wife had a hamburger. Neither of us liked our food. No taste. Since both sandwiches are simple to cook, I have to blame the chef. Must not know how to cook.

We eat here every time we visit Tubac. If you are in a hurry this is not the place to eat. Just sit back and enjoy good food and a great location.

We have eaten here several times, kind of our go-to place when we visit Tubac. But yesterday they really out did themselves. I was deciding between a salad that had chicken and cucumbers in it and a small pizza, both new choices for me. I...More

My husband and I had lunch here and since it was Summer it was not too busy at all, but I knew it was good from friends I had talked to. We both ordered different chicken wraps and they were delicious. Had wine and beer....More
