We were at this restaurant today and never in my life have I experienced such poor service. When we arrived, we waited and waited and finally flagged someone down to get menus. Then we waited and waited. A group of four arrived and sat at a table next to us. The waiter appeared (finally) and proceeded to take their order.... More

Went to Tubac to shop. Went to Jack's for a cold beer and relax at bar. Had the wings and rings, quesadilla and baby back ribs. Great tasting food and hot. Great bartender and service.

We went here during an event in Tubac and as we expected the place was busy and we had to wait for a table. The food was good but fairly basic. This place could be a whole lot better with a little effort, hope it gets better.

I've been to Tubac Jack's many times for lunch with a friend so we decided to try it when our daughter and husband and friends were looking for a place to eat diinner in Tubac. For some reason we got an abbreviated menu but we placed our orders anyway. Three of the orders came within a reasonable amount of time... More

During the recent Tupac Art Festival we stopped in for lunch. Busy place. Seating inside and out. Also seating at the bar. We were a group of 7 and ordered a variety of items. Mine was the "World-famous Green Chili Stew." It was really, really good! Big chunks of mesquite smoked pork. Nice sized chunks of potato, green chilis, corn... More

Came in around 12:45, fairly full at exterior, almost no one inside. Food service was slow, after being served saw little of wait staff as she also had to work exterior. Food was fair more similar to fast food joint. Somewhat expensive for the quality.

When we got there, they were busy so we could understand the kitchen being "backed up", but as time went on, it became almost laughable and this was on a Tuesday! I would hate to see what the weekend is like. Besides the problem in the kitchen, the service was very poor. Every table around us was making comments about... More

This would be a great place to hang out at for a burger and beer. I have had their burger's and they are great, the pulled pork and ribs for me is a bit to sweet but still very good. I'm a fan of fries and although these are really good I wish they would come with some sort of... More
