This little breakfast place opened up a few years ago, here in Tucson. As the name suggests to those familiar with the area, the business originates in the old mining town of Bisbee, Arizona. (More on that cute mining town here!)
After somehow migrating up to warmer climes here in Tucson, the business seems to have thrived! The decor is diner inspired, complete with aluminum (or is it chrome or stainless steel?) bar in front of the kitchen. The fare, on the otherhand, is more country and southwest inspired.
The two dishes my dad and I got perfectly exemplify those very themes. I ordered the Chorizo Ranchers (above). The chorizo was nicely spiced (though in all honesty it was probably bought premade), the tortillas were crisp and the sauce was nice and creamy with a hint of spice. I very much enjoyed my meal.
My dad got the Copper Queen Skillet which was ham, bacon, sausage, gravy, eggs and a biscuit. It was actually very well portioned and nothing overpowered the other ingredients. The gravy was a nice touch – not too heavy nor spicy from the peppercorns, but just enough to add a decadent moist element to the skillet.
This place is always packed on the weekends, and rightly so. It is delicious, quality food that you can count on. Every time I’ve gone there I’ve enjoyed a delicious meal. And next time I go to Bisbee, I’m going to be sure to check out the original restaurant to compare!
