I took a guest from Wisconsin to shop in Tubac and we stopped again at Tubac Jack's for lunch. It was a very windy day so we had to eat inside. It is a little dark inside, compared to eating outside,but the food made up for the atmosphere. We shared 2 appetizers and were full. The fried onion rings were... More

My husband and I went to Tubac on a beautiful AZ Sunday afternoon to do a little shopping, which we did. Then we decided to have an early dinner. We had a fall-off-the-bone rib plate with beans, baked potato and cole slaw. My husband had a local brew and I had delicious prickly pear tea. It was an enjoyable end... More

The best thing about the visit to Tubac Jack's was the music on the porch. We ordered the famous nachos and there was nothing spectacular going on with these overpriced nachos. There is a nice outside patio dining area to kick back and take in the Tubac sights while you eat. Have to agree with the majority of the reviews... More

We were at this restaurant today and never in my life have I experienced such poor service. When we arrived, we waited and waited and finally flagged someone down to get menus. Then we waited and waited. A group of four arrived and sat at a table next to us. The waiter appeared (finally) and proceeded to take their order.... More

We went here during an event in Tubac and as we expected the place was busy and we had to wait for a table. The food was good but fairly basic. This place could be a whole lot better with a little effort, hope it gets better.

I've been to Tubac Jack's many times for lunch with a friend so we decided to try it when our daughter and husband and friends were looking for a place to eat diinner in Tubac.

During the recent Tupac Art Festival we stopped in for lunch. Busy place. Seating inside and out. Also seating at the bar. We were a group of 7 and ordered a variety of items. Mine was the "World-famous Green Chili Stew." It was really, really good! Big chunks of mesquite smoked pork. Nice sized chunks of potato, green chilis, corn... More

We have Johnny Bencomo playing his 18 string guitar every Friday night from 6-9, and a rotating list of bands playing on our patio every Saturday night.

Jack's offers catering for parties large and small, take out, and a huge selection of craft beer and cocktails.
