Fodor's Review

Popular with local families and the business crowd at lunch, this bustling restaurant is in Tucson's Barrio Historico neighborhood and stays open until 11 pm Friday and Saturday and 10 pm the rest of the week. For more than 50 years El Minuto has served topopo salads (a crispy tortilla shell heaped with beans, guacamole, and many other ingredients), huge burritos, and green-corn tamales (in season) made just right. The spicy menudo (tripe soup) is reputed to be a great hangover remedy.
