It’s that time of year — Mother’s Day is comin’ in hot on Sunday, May 8.

Time to make sure your mom knows she’s number one in your heart, in case you hadn’t already been doing so. More likely than not, your mother made meals galore for you when you needed them most, so take her out or order something to bring home this Mother’s Day (and skip the cleanup, too).

As usual, Tucson is home to more than enough options to give her a huge edible “I love you.” Check out the following list of restaurants to make sure you get your reservations and to-go orders in on time (expect this list to grow, too).
