There's a "The Keg" in Oro Valley, about half an hour from our house!

Given that we went to Texas Roadhouse, a popular US chain, three times and it sucked, I'm glad to know The Keg is there for our steakhouse needs.

One thing that attracted us to the greater Tucson area is that there are some very good restaurants. Bear in mind that our closest convenience store is 20 minutes away, so ten minutes further for decent food is just fine. We discovered Vero Amore, a very nice Italian place, in the same vicinity.

Arizona Mexican food is quite different from California Mexican. Calimex is seafood-heavy and Arimex (is that a word?) is into beef. Air-dried beef (carne seca) is the Tucson national dish.

Steve is making beef ribs tonight.

Was wondering how things were going. Life settling?

I'm not a fan of huge chains but when I find a good restaurant I stick with it. In Albuquerque I enjoy going to Chillis.

And if you get to NM for a visit, I'll cook you Northern NM food. That's even more different.

ribs sounds good to me - you must be more out in the sticks than I am
