The Eastside Destination for Food and Fun

Are you looking for some place to spend a few hours shopping and dining, with easy access, and that includes family or some adult fun? A convenient alternative to the more well known destinations For Live Country Music in Tucson, AZ Go To The Maverick'ssuch as Downtown, Fourth Avenue and the La Encantada area is the the Tanque Verde Restaurant & Entertainment Row on the Eastside. The Row has more than 16 restaurants, a number of fast food outlets, some unique retail stores, and even venues great for kids. By my definition the Row starts at the Pima/Wilmot/Tanque Verde intersection and ends at the Rancho Esperanza and Tanque Verde intersection at Udall Park.
