Alton Brown Ate At El Guerro Canelo, Eegee's and More in Tucson

Posted By on Mon, Mar 23, 2015 at 7:30 AM

Remember when we told you that Alton Brown would be coming to town to try out the best Tucson's food and beverage world has to offer? Well, Brown did indeed stop into the city on Sunday, March 22 and it looks like he might have taken some of the suggestions that we saw the most.

Brown posted a photo of the Santa Fe tamale from Tucson Tamale Company, to which one commenter responded:

"Greatest restaurant in the history of restaurants."

Then he snapped a shot of an iconic Sonoran dog from El Guero Canelo, prompting another commenter to say:

"I tried making them last year. It's not easy," attaching a photo of some not-quite-Canelo-worthy dogs ... leave it to the pros.

Next up,  Brown added a photo of him posing with some fresh churros from the Just Churros cart, earning the straightforward response:

"Churros! Gimme."

Before finishing up with a cup of "very good coffee" from Cartel, Brown got a half and half "iced fruit drink" with strawberry and pina colada at Eegee's. While we all know what's up at the Tucson institution, commenters explained it to out-of-towners like so:

"You can't even accurately describe an Eegee's because there's nothing else like it. It's not a slurpee. It's not an icee. It's not a fruit cone. It's one of a kind." Well said, Eegee's-lovin' commenter.

So, what do you think? Did Brown do a good job of hitting up Tucson's must-stop locations for Old Pueblo eats? Where should he come on his next visit?
