The Red Garter is a local sports bar with average to good food and a bar. It's a good place to catch a sporting event.

Driving down Speedway and just looking for a place for lunch, nothing at all in mind. We happened to pull into a parking lot. Side of the building said 'The Red Garter' with a beautiful big grey horse painted on it. Not expecting a whole lot, we got a big surprise. For one thing, I was able to order a... More

I've been going to Red Garter regularly for the entire 22 years that I have lived in Tucson and it never disappoints! If you're a bar food junkie (ie: burgers, sandwiches, fried foods) then THIS is the place to be! Don't get me wrong though, they do still have salads, grilled sandwiches, fajita platters etc also and they're all just... More

Had the best time at the red garter. The bar was awesome with really good prices and the wings were out of this world. My favorite buffalo wings by far. Every time we are in Tucson, red garter is a must.

The Red Garter has been in Tucson for many, many years. Here are the highs and lows as it now stands. pros + friendly servers + reasonable quality food cooked to order + reasonable prices + digital jukebox with excellent (wi-fi enabled?) selection cons - a little loud, but not as loud as many Tucson bars - ambience is only...

Been going here for years. Alway a very chill crowd. None of that frat boy atmosphere you get on 4th Avenue. Always a good mix on the jukebox. They have great burgers and the kitchen stays open until 12 midnight.

We decided to try the Red Garter last night! It was a little dark when we first went in but nice, clean and a large area. Tried the San Francisco burger, Swiss cheese, thousand island dressing on grilled sourdough with shoestring fried only $8.75 and very good! Our other order was a Country Club, grilled skinless chicken breast with bacon,... More

Do not expect fancy or pretentious. There is none of that! What you will find is a genuine bar with lots of colorful neon beer signs. There are plenty of TVs for the sports crowd, pool tables, shuffleboard, and darts. You can sit at the long bar, at a table or a booth. The bar looks well stocked and there... More

This bar/restaurant in central Tucson has a friendly vibe. We sat at the bar for drinks and dinner. The martinis were made just right, and they have a large selection of premium liquor. They also have a fairly large selection of bar food on the menu. The hot dog was huge, and the French onion soup and salad were good... More

Ive eaten at Red Garter many times but never reviewed them. They are nothing but consistent. Usually go w/ friends before UA games and have tried most of the burgers and sandwiches. Not sure ever had a bad meal. Service always friendly, good beer selection, TV's and better than average bar food. I'd have a burger there any day
