My daughter and I each had the taco salad. It was very tasty. I will order it again on my next visit. It comes in a fried tortilla bowl filled with lettuce, tomato and we had ground beef. You can also get chicken. It is a little spendy but worth it.Parking: Very small parking space in front of the restaurant. Other small spot across the street. No handicap parking.Wheelchair accessibility: Difficult to get in with my walker. Wheelchair would have a hard time.

I was served one shot of tequila with my meal and one beer. The tequila shot was charged at 20 dollars! . Not even in Elvira's a shot of tequila is that expensive. When I asked why, they gave the stupid look. I am not going to make a fuzz in public, but I will not go there again. They don't need me,.they have enough rich gringos in there who don't bother to look at the bill.

I had been to Tubac several times and I had heard the mariachis playing. Always wanted to check it out as I had heard good things about the place. It was only after sitting down and observing the clientele that I realized the food was going to be geared towards retirees from Illinois or Wisconsin, and my assumptions were correct. Atmosphere is great, the outside dining is a nice setup but the food wasn't the greatest if you're into spicier, more legit Mexican food. If you're a snowbird, I'd probably recommend it. I'm still under 50 and I've lived in the southwest most of my life, so it didn't impress me.

The food was ok, maybe it was just what I was having... very pricey. Server was so bad that my friends didn't leave a tip. The best thing about the place was the atmosphere and the Mariachis. So entertaining.Food: 3/5


For my wife's birthday we were in Tubac buying some art and we stopped here for lunch. It was a pleasant surprise. I can't vouch for how authentically Mexican it was, since I've never been to Mexico, but I had the steak fajitas, and it was excellent. My wife had the burrito and she said it was great. The mariachi duet was a nice touch. Tubac is a tourist town and I didn't expect five star dining, but the food was very good and reasonably priced. We are going to be returning there tomorrow with friends.


The food was good but nothing special very american type mexican food. The prices in relationship to the quality and the quantity are why too high.

Horrible experience and food. We mentioned to the waitress that our food was cold. When she came back to tell us that it was set at 150° and fine (165° is FDA/US Food regulations) and our opinion meant nothing to her. Then we had a bite of the rice and it tasted like petroleum. Again, our opinion meant nothing to her and she told us to get out, don't pay, just leave. So we did. It's now 2 hours later and my husband and I both have food poisoning. Pick a different restaurant when you come to Tubac! We will never go to Soto's Outpost again.


Average plate is $18, deluxe stuff is $25.No lunch menu or sides. Portions were on the small side, which surprised us at the price. Had the chicken mole, average, not enough spice and chocolate. Tubac has a steady stream of tourists now, so some of the eateries Can get by with so so food and high prices. We ordered guacamole dip, came without chips, they were extra…. Kinda weird.

Amazing place for REAL Mexican food. Everyone should try this place. I ll drive from Tucson all the way over . It's more than worth it. Can t explain how great this food tastes..Love it it deserves 10 stars . Honestly.Food: 5/5


We both loved our food- chicken mole for him, picadillo for me. Service was so so. Even if restaurants are short staffed you would expect someone to check on you. We got there a little before noon. They were not crowded. Because the picadillo was SO delicious will go there again!

Cozy and charming interior seating area. Food was excellent and very tasty Mexican flavors. The cheese enchilada was excellent and I loved my ground beef taco (Combo 2) with really.good rice and beans. My partner loved the chicken mole and he has had mole in lots of places. I do reccomend, even though service was a bit slow, they were friendly.Parking: A few spaces out front and some curb parking available

Enjoyed house fajitas to go. Unless changing very recently, prices found on website and internet are not correct. Actual current prices are more expensive.

Employees are friendly but unskilled. Bartender did not know the difference between the taquilla brands they serve. Server could not answer menu questions. Marriachi band is very loud and kind of gets in your face. Do not order any dish with ground beef. They put NO seasoning in it. Its' just blah

Fantastic food and service. Prices are a little higher than most but it is well worth the extra cost because the quantity of their food is excellent!Food: 5/5

It's a local family, been around a long time. My combo lunch $18.99 was good. I have to say the iceberg lettuce tasted like it was shredded with metal blades and stored in plastic. It was hard to get all of it off my tacos and ruined the taste for me. Any other kind of lettuce, please, and use a lettuce knife only, fresh in the kitchen.
