Mark Vierthaler

Jenn and I have been absolutely chuffed with everything Foodie Insiders has offered since we joined in January – the meetups, the passes, and of course our most recent partnership with Whiskey Del Bac!

Linda Menard

Mike and I are enjoying the coupons that are forcing us out of our usual, “comfortable” restaurant choices to try new places. We’ve enjoyed meeting some pretty interesting people at the mixer we were able to attend. Added bonus, we’ve enjoyed the discounts to events we would go to anyway. We had hoped to get the jump on going to GUT dinners but with being out of the country with a family emergency must have missed the email for the one tomorrow, so we would be thrilled to get to go. Plus I’m getting a crown replaced/root canal on Monday so I think I deserve a little fun before I won’t be able to eat great food for a couple of weeks. 😁 Thanks for getting the tix and sharing. Linda and Mike

Lee Weimar

This is the first year I purchased the passport and I am amazed at what a great opportunity it is for me to try new restaurants. The fact that new restaurants keep getting added is a bonus. I also love the fact that it is an amazing value.

Chandya

I love to try all the different restaurants featured!

B & A Bowden

Tucson Foodie Insiders has encouraged my wife and I to sample eateries and beverage options in Tucson that we might not have normally tried before. There is an enticing and varied selection of eateries to choose from. The venues are scattered around town, giving diners options that aren’t too far afield from where they live. The additional vouchers that come around monthly are certainly welcome. We would recommend this. (Please remember to tip your waiters correctly, even with the deep discount!)

Alicia Grabe

We have tried so many cool restaurants in Tucson!! The new experiences have been memorable!!

Sean Denlinger

Tiffany and I are true foodies… Tucson Foodies that is. When Insiders was introduced, we couldn’t wait to sign up. Not only do we enjoy all of the amazing food that Tucson chefs create, we love being a part of the Tucson Foodie community. We’ve met so many like minded individuals, some of which have become good friends and now “foodie” together with. Lastly, it’s an investment into the Tucson community that we are glad to make. Show up, support local, and enjoy the culinary fruits of Tucson!

Jocelyn Retamoza

Why over complicate it? I love being a Foodie member because I just really love good FOOD. Tucson Foodie is the best way to find good food, made enthusiastically, by people who really love food.

Mary Tosca

I LOVE being a Foodie member because I love to get out and about around town and support local eateries. I’m having a ton of fun meeting new people and trying new food. Tucson Foodie is taking me to places I never knew existed. I’m telling everyone I know about it. ❤️❤️❤️

Jocelyn Gonzvar

To me, being a “foodie” is a passion and a lifestyle. This club allows me to join a community to shares the same passion as I do. Not only do I get exclusive opportunities to savor unique flavors, eat at amazing places, and engage in amazing conversations but also I get to see my hometown develop an even more exquisite palate. It never disappoints. Love what you are all doing. Keep it up.

Jaime Navarro

We love Tucson foodie because we moved here from Seattle two years ago and this is helping us make Tucson home! We’ve tried so many new restaurants, explored new neighborhoods, gotten to know new people and have had so much fun! My husband and I are huge foodies so no better way to make a new city home then through food.

Diane Aune

I love being an Insider because it makes me try new places I did not even know they existed. I recently discovered whiskey is ok in a mixed drink. I get to share these new places/ experiences with my best friend and along the way we are making new friends at the member events. Thank you Tucson Foodie!

Addie Plummer

I love being able to experience Tucson culture and heritage in a fun way. I’m even more grateful to be able to share these experiences with a tight-knit community of other foodies. Foodies does truly bring people together!

Desiree

I love being an Insider because meeting new friends at the mixers is great, and the passport gives me a chance to visit places I might never get have tried. I love the app and all the options.

Brian Mihalka

We love being Tucson foodie Insiders! Before we go out to eat we always check to see places that we have never been so we can use the vouchers. The savings are amazing! We love the discount offerings to festivals and the exclusive invites! We wish we were able to attend more. It seems there is always another event around the corner!

Patti Hageman

As someone relatively new to the Tucson area, my Insiders membership provides me with the best possible opportunity to learn how to the peel the onion that is Tucson. With most cities, visitors and new residents are immediately introduced to the best the region has to offer, and it does not necessarily go up from there. However, as I am proudly educating my friends from afar, Tucson introduces newbies to its vibrant authentic self and then just gets better and better with each experience!

Nancy Hayes

We love being Tucson Foodie Insiders because with our passport with have experienced new restaurants, eaten delicious food, and have had some excellent cocktails in very unique cocktail bars. We love the opportunities as we did today getting to eat at the newest restaurants in town and share our experiences with friends. We are known as the go to couple of you want to know anything about the newest places in Tucson. We also love the people who run Tucson Foodie. You are an amazing group who are so welcoming and are truly working to build a Tucson Foodie Community!

Sam Klein

Love the variety of restaurants I wouldn’t try otherwise, and the local connection!

Anna Zappia

Being a Foodie member has not only gotten us to try new places, but also explore areas of Tucson that we don’t typically go. It’s also a really great conversation starter when talking to new people!

Johnny Zapp

We have loved being an Insider so far for a variety of reasons, but especially the social aspect as well as stepping away from our regular haunts and finding new spots to love. That GUT dinner tomorrow sounds like an amazing opportunity to mingle with new friends and indulge in a rad culinary experience!!

Stephen Negri

Being an Insiders has exposed me to new restaurants, new friends and new experiences! I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to experience the best restaurants in Tucson!!

Jerry Moon

We enjoy being a Tucson Foodie member because it brings us opportunities to try new food. One reason we moved to Tucson was the culture. Being a member allows us to experience culture through food. Not only do we enjoy the food, we also enjoy the exclusive events, like Corbett’s.

Casey Hilde

The world has changed drastically over the last several years. Being in healthcare during the Pandemic was a trying time, but the Foodie events have provided my wife and I with the first sense of normalcy in a very long time. Supporting independent businesses is one of the great joys of living Tucson. I am proud to know that when I support Tucson Foodie, I am supporting locally owned business and members of my community. Tucson Foodie brings people together, and to me that is what it’s all about.

Richard Grabe

The best part of being a Foodie member has been getting to try different restaurants that I might have never tried before.

Alicia Klein

We love being Insiders because it has helped us break out of our comfort zones with restaurants in Tucson. We love trying new places and different food with friends.

Colby Elliott

I love being a part of this community. I’ve made new friends, explored new restaurants and had some super memorable experiences. So glad this exists in Tucson!

Membership is $20/month or $200/year and can be canceled at any time in the member portal.
Tasting events are included in your membership and always include food and drink. The restaurant vouchers are also fully included. Tickets to our monthly chef-led R&D dinner series are always $65 (100% of which goes to the Chef) and can only be purchased by Insiders. Most of the unique curated experiences are covered by your membership fee, but some may come with an additional fee. We will always be clear and up front about ay additional costs related to Insider perks.
Install the Tucson Foodie app at app.tucsonfoodie.com and login using the same email addressed you used to purchase your membership
All vouchers are redeemed via the Tucson Foodie mobile app (which can be downloaded at app.tucsonfoodie.com). When you're at a restaurant, simply go to the Redemption page for the voucher you want to redeem. Show your server your phone, tap Redeem and they'll take it right off your bill. Easy!
Yes. Each voucher is single-use. They do not carry a balance like a gift card would. This is why some places give you 4 x $10 vouchers rather than 1 x $40 vouchers. The value of each voucher was chosen to match the average check size at a restaurant so that you are sure to get the full value.
If an event, for any reason, cannot take place as planned, it will be rescheduled. If you cannot attend the new event you will be refunded.
Unlike typical coupons, these vouchers come right off your bill, much like a gift card! They are single-use though, so be sure to at least buy as much as the voucher amount or you'll lose the balance. Most vouchers are $10, $20, or $40 off your bill, sized just under the restaurant's average check size so that it's easy for you to get the full value. Some have stipulation, like dine-in only (no take-out).
Vouchers never expire, but they replenish after a certain number of days. For example, most $10 vouchers replenish 90 days after you use it, while most $40 vouchers replenish a year after you use it. Some, like the amazing Transit Tea voucher ($10), replenish every month! The more you use, the more you get.
Yes.
These experiences are all about sparking engaging conversations between culinary artists and food enthusiasts. We transform some of Tucson's finest independent restaurants into captivating culinary theaters. Here, chefs curate imaginative tasting menus and step out from behind the scenes to personally present each course, exchange tales, and engage in Q&A via a fireside chat at the end of the dinner.
Members can buy a +1 ticket for a non-member to a chef-led dinner for the regular $65 price, plus a non-member fee of $20. Tasting events and unique experiences are members-only, although sometimes we'll let members know they can bring a +1.
Every event and dinner is different. We will keep you informed as menus are finalized for each event.
Come as you are, be appreciated as you are.
We will do our best to accommodate any seating preferences that you may have, though we’re unable to make any promises as seating arrangements will vary among venues and may require last-minute changes in preparation for the event.
Absolutely! As attendees savor each bite, they’ll have the chance to provide valuable feedback on comment cards, completing the circle of collaboration as we share these insights directly with the chefs post-event.
Indeed. If you go to reserve a seat for a scheduled R&D dinner and discover that it’s already sold out, you’ll be directed to a pop-up window where you can add your name to the waitlist.
Chefs are using your contributions to ensure they have the ingredients and staff needed to make the dinner amazing. Requests to cancel made three or more days before the event may be honored. However, cancellations within 72 hours before are not eligible for refund.
You can cancel your membership directly in the mobile app under Manage My Account or by emailing support at info@tucsonfoodie.com.
No refunds, but you can cancel at any time.
