I needed a venue for gramps's 90th birthday bash. A luncheon for about 40 people fit perfectly in the sunroom restaurant area and adjoining patio. I brought all the party stuff: food, drinks, cake and supplies in with me and ATI helped me with the coffee service, water and odds and ends I forgot (like cake knife). The setting was astonishingly beautiful. The inn is charming with plenty of space to spread out: porch swings, walking trails and gardens. The details of the architecture are a grand compliment to the surrounding countryside. Tia was on hand the whole time to guide us along for whatever need we had from ice buckets to trash bags. Tia kept our guests happy and the party moving. It was easy to set-up the reservation. I met with the owner (Tia's mom) ahead of time to pay for the space and survey the scene. It was just that simple. If you have an event like a shower, birthday, luncheon or other catered event, be sure to bookmark the Amado Territory Inn. They are a gem in the Green Valley, Tubac, Sahuarita, Amado area.
We were looking for a B&B in the Tubac area. We found this B&B. We were pleased at this B&B. We recommend this highly. We were there over Valentine's weekend. On friday, the owners left a bud vase with 2 roses and a small box of chocolates in the room. On Saturday morning, they offered Mimosas. A very nice treat. They offer full breakfast which was great. In the afternoon, they offered some wine. The views from the dinning area was beautiful, with a great view of the nearby mountains. There is a walkway in the back with outdoor seating.
I'd stay here again in a heartbeat. The couple running the place are extremely friendly and accommodating. We arrived early by accident and they scrambled to have our room ready. They have their own chickens out back so fresh eggs for breakfast! Everything was delicious.
Hit or miss. I've been in there a dozen times in the last 8 months and I haven't had a consistent meal. I see the same people in there working but the food is unpredictable. I've had a few meals that I thought were certainly above average and I've walked away recommending people try it. But the last several visits have left me wanting. It's expensive for the type of food they are putting on your plate as well. If their portions were larger and the food was good I'd go in there more often. As of now, I only go in there when I'm in Amado and there really aren't other options.
This is solid food and drink in a place with a long history. Burgers, steaks, Mexican food and some other choices. Burgers and staeks are great. Never got to the Mexican food casue I like the steaks and burgers so much. Comfy cowboy setting with nifty placemats with all the local cattle brands from the surrounding ranches, now and in the past. Great service.
I prefer city dwelling, so my hope is that if you are reading this, you are passing by. My father retired to this God awful wasteland, so I visit on occasion. I usually DETEST anything cooked south of 79th St. in Chicago, (I used to believe the world was flat and ended at 111th St.) but The Cow Palace is quite an exception. Every steak, burger, burrito and side dish has been excellent. It is well staffed and service is always prompt. The Mexican food served is just that, not Tex-Mex shit. My father is now lost at sea, presumed dead, but my stepmom still lives there. I'm sure my next trip won't be complete without a visit to The Cow Palace.
