This is the place to go to try the famous Sonoran hot dog. EGC is a nicely designed fast-food eatery offering great service and an excellent sandwich. It’s unique and delicious and it’s top dog in Tucson. Happy trails

The restaurant just feels like it should be south of the border (and that's a compliment.) Glass-bottle soft drinks, mariachi music (live band) at lunch on Friday, red, white and green colors everywhere, chips and salsa... I really liked it. We will be back.
