The Blues, Brews & BBQ buffet at Loews Ventana Canyon Resort is one of the very BEST brunches in Tucson! You can expect mouthwatering dishes, mountains of artfully displayed gourmet food, LIVE music, and scenic views.
Executive Chef Jason Flores is new on the scene, but has ample experience (his most recent posts were at Hilton Sedona Resort at Bell Rock and Hotel Del Coronado).
Available to the public every Sunday between 11:00am and 2:00pm, this all-you-can-eat brunch/lunch is a treat for the eyes and the stomach. Be sure to arrive hungry because there are dozens of dishes to sample.
Follow your nose to the smoking platters outdoors where your plate will fill up with grilled salmon, babyback ribs, pulled pork, bacon-wrapped sonoran hot dogs, macaroni & cheese, skillet cornbread, grilled vegetables and fruit, and creamy mashed potatoes.
If breakfast foods are more up your alley, you'll find a full station indoors with favorites from this category. Scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, pancakes, potatoes, salads, soft cheeses, a made-to-order omelet station, watery melons at the peak of ripeness, and pastries to tempt your sweet tooth.
Seafood lovers will have their fill at a third station - where you'll find buckets overflowing with shrimp, mussels, and oysters with accompanying sauces.
Last but not least, the dessert station is lavish and offers something for every taste bud. Depending on the date of your visit (desserts rotate), you may find s'mores, mousse, creme brûlée, apple crisp, cookies, chocolate-covered strawberries, churros, a chocolate fountain, ice cream sundaes, or caramel-topped brownies.
We haven't yet mentioned the brews equation of this brunch - enjoy bottomless beers and mimosas! Coffee, tea, water, and juices are also unlimited and included with your $64/adult cost.
Both indoor and outdoor seating options are available. If you want to be close to the tunes, sit outside to enjoy the live band and to let the glorious Tucson sun soak into your shoulders. Prefer a quieter meal? Sit indoors where you can be near the breakfast and desserts while still having full access to all that the buffet offers.
