354 South Main Avenue Tucson Arizona 85701 US

El Minuto has been serving authentic Sonoran cuisine from its colorful building in Barrio Viejo since 1939. The restaurant continues to turn out classic, well-prepared food at reasonable prices. The dining room is lively and friendly, with murals painted on the walls and Christmas lights strung from the ceilings.

Menu highlights include the cheese crisp—topped with tomato, onion, and green chillies— and the carne asada burro. The rich, hearty menudo comes in two varieties—red and white—and is served with a side of bread and fixings like lime and green onions. Vegetarians can order the guacamole tacos or tostadas. For dessert, try the flan, fruit chimi, or sopapillas—puffy yeast pastries fried to perfection.

El Minuto is right next door to El Tiradito (also called The Wishing Well Shrine). Walk over there after your meal to learn more about the site, an important place for Barrio Viejo’s Mexican-American community.
