The Buffet has been named one of America's Best Bars by Esquire magazine.

Says Esquire:


A classic American dive, the Buff dispenses cheap beer and strong drinks. It's Tucson's oldest bar, there by the railroad tracks since 1934, and ten bucks still gets you two pitchers of Coors. At 6:00 a.m. it opens. At 6:00 p.m. you get a free drink on the house for "Happy Minute." The hot dogs are available all day long. But they should never be consumed sober.

BTW, Esquire spells the name of our town "Tuscon." Definitely not man at his best.
