You may have seen the news that change was coming to Tucson’s own taco garage. Well, change has come, and we came to you live from the newly imagined space that still promises that they fix hungry, Sir Veza’s Kitchen & Kantina!

Chef Gary Hickey, Ray Flores, Matt Russell, Mike Rapp & Chef Michael Elefante

Our celebrity co-host was fellow foodie and drive-time radio wonder Mike Rapp, host of Tucson Morning News on KQTH, who briefed us on his latest action, including his participation in Real Men Wear Pink to support the American Cancer Society. We were then joined by John Aldecoa of Brother John’s Beer, Bourbon, and BBQ who threw his own hat in the ring to support Mike’s efforts by donating restaurant proceeds to Real Men Wear Pink. Listen for the delicious details! We were then joined by Sir Veza’s own Ray Flores and Gary Hickey who revealed the fresh new concept in a space we’ve loved for years.

And the food?

Man vs. Taco. And it’s a salad!

Our tasting included a hemp tamale, kantina nachos, all-natural Sonoran dogs, and a taco salad served in a 14-inch taco shell that you have to see to believe!

We closed out with Michael Elefante of Mama Louisa’s with information on this year’s Tucson Knife Fight finals!
