Today is winding down, but it's still hot as...the Tucson sun out there.

#Gelato  sounds like the perfect way to cool off tonight. Stop in for $1 Gelato Every Monday.

Best burgers! Best beer made on site in Az.Try the Rasberry or Nolans Porter. Lots of room for groups. Park in garage to south or north. Comfortable tables and bars. Club for U of A by Night upstairs. Well diversified.

Gentle bens is awesome. Great food, great beer, great service. I love this place. The Porter followed by a spinach dip appetizer is the best. Great location downtown university.

I love their fish tacos. They're definitely my go to on the Ben's menu but I also like their tequila wings (make sure to squeeze the lime! It really brings out their flavor) and their artichoke dip (made for sharing). Aside from the food I also like going to Ben's for the atmosphere. It's a great place on University to grab a drink or a few with friends :)

Good beer, GREAT food, solid service. The Carne Asada Quesadilla makes a grown man blush and the fish tacos will make a sailor say, "AAAAAAARRRRRGHHHHH!!!" Due to an overwhelming amount of pleasure, naturally. Stop in for good eye candy, too. The girls are sweet and the guys are tight. This place will make a unicorn frolic with pure joy down a rainbow while beaming pixie sticks from his (or her) nostrils....Highly recommend!

Tasty craft brew and food. This place gets pretty packed on weekends or during or after a big U of A event but if you go there on an off day, you can get right in. Friendly staff and prices are decent.

Gentle Ben's is becoming a must stop place for me when I visit Tucson, especially being so close to the University. The menu is constantly evolving and improving and the ingredients are always fresh. Most recently I tried the Firestarter burger and I have to say it was tasty as hell with just the right amount of heat. They didn't skimp on the jalapeno bacon and the patty was thick and juicy which kept me craving each bite. I also tried the Gentle Ben's IPA which was a solid beer that exceeded my expectations and paired nicely with the burger. The ambiance is nice and the outdoor patio is a great place to kick back and enjoy the great Tucson weather. The service staff was friendly and attentive and the management was most accommodating.

Had lunch with some co-workers yesterday. The chicken quesadilla was ridiculously delicious, the service was great, and gelato was a nice add-on for dessert. We've spent happy hours there as well, and sampled many of the specialty cocktails. It's nice that they're using fresh ingredients for those! Super cool and refreshing.

Gentle Ben's has been a mainstay in my life for the last twelve years, so I thought it only right that I sing its praises. First and foremost, the beer selection and quality is top notch. Ben's is the only brewing company on University Blvd. that offers a great selection of homemade beers to enjoy while watching televised sports events, pre- or post-gaming for U of A athletics (Bear Down!) and campus events, or just good old happy hour with great friends. If you are an IPA fan, you'd be hard pressed to find a better one anywhere. The food menu provides a nice selection of tasty appetizers, sandwiches, burgers and entrees that are highlighted with a southwest flair. I particularly enjoy a number of their apps; the spinach artichoke dip is literally the best I've ever had (amazing!), their southwest egg rolls are unique and delicious and their nachos are top notch. Finally, their staff has always been upbeat, courteous and generally engaging. If you are looking for great beer, food and service, you'd be hard pressed to find a better spot directly near the U of A.
