Everyone in Tucson knows about Pat's chili dogs. A Tucson tradition for more than 40 years, Pat's serves chili dogs and fries and other "drive in" food. The place has a legion of fans. 1202 W Niagara (also described as being on Grande Ave).
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
