Don Pedro’s Peruvian Bistro to Open South Side Location, Add Second Food Truck

Don Pedro’s Peruvian Bistro has settled at a permanent location with a patio on Tucson’s south side. Additionally, they’ve added a second truck to their arsenal for events and catering.

The grand opening at 4101 S. 12th Ave will be held from 11 a.m. – 8 p.m. on Friday, January 12.

Don Pedro’s originally operated as a brick-and-mortar restaurant until closing in August 2015. Due to a landlord rent dispute, the restaurant went mobile with a food truck instead.
