Where should I eat while in Tucson, AZ?

Tucson has some great resturants - both fancy and family run:
Cafe Poca Cosa - Quirky semi-fancy neuvo-Mexican with a frequently changing menu of custom creations. Popular with locals and reviewers alike. Downtown near the train museum.
Mi Nidito - Everybody has their favorite traditional family-run Mexican food place. This one has been around for 40+ years and has attracted the attention of visiting presidents and movie stars. South 4th Ave (South Tucson).
El Charro - Like Mi Nidito, another Tucson tradition with excellent family-recipe Mexican food. Located in a historic old house on Court Ave downtown.
Austins Ice Cream Parlor - Family-run soda shop - a real authentic survivor from the 1950s (when it was founded). They make all their own ice cream as well as sandwiches, soups, etc. On Broadway, just east of the U of A.
Janos (and the J Bar) - Probably Tucson's top-ranked fine-dining resturant. Head Chef Janos Wilder is a world-recognized chef and this cafe is often highlighed on national reviews. North Tucson, La Paloma Resort.
El Guero Canelo - Tired of fancy and mainstream? This no-thrills neighborhood 'hotdog stand' with outdoor seating in South Tucson is one of the best places to get a south-of-the-border creation called a 'Sonoran Dog'. I know people in Phoenix that will drive to Tucson just for a Sonoran Dog. South 12 Ave.
Eegees - Ok, nothing to write home about. But this is a Tucson-based chain and part of the local eating scene (especially in summer). Kinda like a Subway sandwich shop but with their special slushy drink - the 'Eegee'. All over Tucson (and nowhere else).Source(s): Lived in Tucson for many years and frequently visit there (often just for the food)

I love Tucson. I ate at the huddle house though and the Laquinta Inn.

Cheddars on Broadway, by far one of the best burger joints in town.
Elliots on 4th Ave, another really good bar/burger joint. Try a Buttery Nipple.
Sir Veza's, one of the best Mexican restaurants. On Speedway.
