La Indita Mexican Restaurant is relocating after 38 years in business

It’s the end of an era – sort of – for a Tucson classic.

They’ve been in the same spot on Fourth Avenue for 38 years, but the family-owned La Indita Mexican Restaurant has plans to move this April.

Since 1983, Maria and Joseph Garcia have served affordable and delicious meals in the restaurant’s cozy dining room, decorated with scenes of rural indigenous life and outfitted with wooden chairs and tables. The family is moving locations because their neighbor, IBT’s, purchased the building last year with plans to expand.

La Indita shared on Facebook that they’re currently talking with landlords at two possible locations. One spot is down the road on Fourth Avenue and the other is in Menlo Park.

So, you’ve still got time to visit the historical location, and if it’s your first time stopping in, you’re in for a treat.

Meals at La Indita begin with hand-fried chips and a carafe of incredibly fresh, slightly spicy red salsa, offering something to munch on while you peruse the menu. This is helpful because choosing among the wide range of burros, chimichangas, tacos, tamales, tostadas, and more can be difficult.

La Indita is located at 622 N. Fourth Ave. For more information, call (520) 792-0523 or follow La Indita on Facebook
