Dining Deals, $10 Happy Hour Bites & More at Renee’s Tucson

Renee Kreager and her husband, Steve, owners and operators of Renee’s Tucson, first arrived in Tucson in the ’90s. They quickly fell in love with the city and decided to make it their home soon after.

Living in Tucson can be a blessing with at least eight months of weather that’s easy to handle. We don’t have to shovel snow or worry about too many natural disasters, and there are plenty of restaurants with beautiful outdoor patios.

However, during the summer months, the heat can put a damper on things!

Luckily, the restaurant at 7065 E. Tanque Verde Rd. is offering a group of specials from June to September of this year.

One of those deals is Renee’s “Some Like it Hot!” special: all of those dining out on the patio get 20% off of their meal from now until the end of September.

If you’re taking someone out for a special birthday lunch, Renee’s has a deal for you!

From 11 a.m. – 3 p.m., bring in that person celebrating a birthday for a $50 shared meal including two glasses of prosecco or iced tea, two small salads, one pizza, pasta, or lasagna to share, and then one slice of flourless chocolate cake.

They’ll even include a “Happy Birthday” candle in the cake to wish them well.

We all love a great Happy Hour special! However, sometimes we don’t want to leave the house when the asphalt looks like a George Foreman Grill (does anyone still use those?), radiating heat too hot to walk on.

From 3 – 5:30 p.m. daily, Renee’s is offering an At-Home Happy Hour Special (takeout only).

For just $10, you can get a one-topping 12-inch pizza, any salad on the menu, pasta (spaghetti, penne pesto, or penne arrabbiata), or cake (two slices of flourless chocolate cake or one slice of Steve’s Cake).

Therefore, you have options at Renee’s this summer! Whether you want to get your food to go and enjoy at home, or are aiming to dine in, the restaurant has a few deals available now until the end of September.

What’s in a Name?

In 2021, the Kreager’s changed the restaurant’s name from Renee’s Organic Oven to just Renee’s Tucson.

“One of the reasons we switched from Renee’s Organic Oven to Renee’s was to let people know that we were still us,” said Renee. “You knew what to expect to some degree but you should pause and see what’s different. So it was really the most gentle way that I thought I could say to our guests, ‘Hey, I’m still here and I love you.’”
