Fred's is a long drive from Tucson, off Sierrita Mountain Rd. and not so easy to find, but worth the effort. It's nothing fancy - just an old-school steakhouse with good food and a great, out-in-the-country atmosphere. The beef is the best thing to order on the menu. Fred's has a roping arena and also stores a lot of the rolling stock used in the Rodeo Parade. We have been going to Fred's for over 30 years, even though we no longer live in Tucson. It's a taste of what Tucson was like before the population explosion.
Probably the best ribeye i have ever had. My wife said her filet was equally as good. This place is a hidden gem. Some friends suggested we give this place a try and we are so glad we did. I am putting this restaurant in my all time top five. Somehow I found room for dessert and the chocolate mousse was killer.
Some friends recommended this restaurant and we gave it a try. Best steaks we have had in the last 10 years and at a very reasonable price. My wife said best filet she has ever eaten. We will definately be back.
Still the best steaks and ribs in Tucson. We go here every time we are in town
Hard place to fine, but lot's of fun!
Great Americana food. Awesome breakfasts, burgers and dinners. Dont let the stakehouse name fool you, this is more of a diner. Great food at a reasonable price. No frills, good service. Owners George and Dina always greet you with a smile.
We were in for dinner tonight, which we visit about once a month. I always order the King size Prime Rib. Tonight I have to tell you, I am not sure we will be back! I made the mistake of answering yes when the waitress ask if I cared to have it seered on the grill! The cook BUTTERFLIED MY 21.00 PIECE OF PRIME AND COOKED IT LIKE A STEAK! Why would someone EVER do that WITHOUT ASKING THE GUEST IF THAT'S OKAY! seriously, it took all the juice out of the meat, the bottom piece of butterfield meat was about an 1/8 of inch thick, and if I wanted a steak I would've ordered a t-bone! they were gracious enough to take the dinner off our bill, but it kinda ruined the dinner of which I have maybe one to two nights a month that I that I am not too busy to go out to eat! We use to visit the Outback on Ina, but it has seriously went down hill also! Not sure where we will go now? The poor server was shocked when I handed her the 20.00 tip, and said she could accept it, but I quickly told her it was NOT her fault, IT WAS THE COOK!
Food has taken quite a decline. Very disappointing.
Food is no longer fresh and steaks are not longer premium grade.
Great place for a steak!!! Fabulous food & atmosphere with live music on the weekends.
Love their steak and beans, and salads...never have enough room for dessert. Servers have been friendly. We enjoy walking around the trail dust town, and shop a bit...don't visit much anymore since moving to a rural area SE of Tucson...have to drive to Sonoita for a decent steak now :D
For my money, this is THE best steakhouse in Tucson for those who want to get ALOT of great food at an extremely affordable price!
The food is hideous
Love this place. I have been coming here since I was a kid ( 30 + years sgo) Always great steak and beans. Pit beef is also excellent. My kids love the wild west show, train, and general store. My first choice for a steak dinner.
Rather crappy tasting food. Sorry but this place isn't good these days. Soggy tacos, mushy undercooked tamales, rice and beans served at room temperature, and the beef tastes like 5 day old leftovers. Maybe they used to be good? I notice more and more graffiti on this side of town to. Is everything going downhill around here?
Inconsistent is the word that best describes Little Mexico. Some days the food is decent. Not great, but decent. Other times when we went the food was pretty bad.
Just east of South 6th Avenue on the Eastbound frontage road, this place beats all the rest for prime rib, steaks, chicken and ribs. We especially like the very reasonably priced prime rib. My sister & brother-in-law and their friends from Dallas declare that it is better than the Dallas prime rib mecca, Lawry's. For me, and about 20 of my friends, there isn't a better slab of prime rib in Tucson than the one they serve at the Silver Saddle.
Its the atmosphere which makes this place a destination. The food is average at best. The open grille area is fun to watch and be sure you are not a soft talker or your dining companions will not be able to hear you.
Why anyone would come here a second time is beyond me. Among all the cities I've lived in, I have to say Tucson is at the bottom food wise. Still, there are several better steak houses than El Coral.
Good soups and cinnamon iced tea, but their lunch and dinner platters aren't very good at all. Been there more than once. So many Mexican eateries in Tucson yet so few good one. Unfortunately this is another miss.
Grandpa likes it. It's cheap. Safe place to take the cousins from Indiana.
