Pub Fare

17 Jan

Thunder Canyon Brewery quietly opened last week in the center of Tucson’s first Safeway, the building at the SE corner of Broadway and Fifth. Somehow the word got out. Upon my first visit, people were waiting at the door by 6:30. The decor is spare and minimal. The space and ambience lends itself to hanging out at a friend’s place, who just happens to live in a big, open loft. From my table, I could spot the lighted neon of Hotel Congress. The staff was warm, friendly and attentive. The food was tasty! I had the Pub Mac & Cheese and a glass of sauvignon blanc. The portions were very generous and priced right! By the smiles all around, it was clear that patrons were enjoying their food, drink and friends. The staff seemed genuinely surprised by the generous turn out! Congrats!

The first quarter of 2013 expects more eats from Diablo Burger and Proper in the Rialto Building, Penca on Broadway (this month!) and The Saint on Congress.  Can’t wait!
