Proper offers locally sourced down-home comfort food with a Southwestern slant. Try a stack of super-huge cheddar biscuits smothered in sweet ancho-chile sausage gravy and garnished with shredded locally grown sage.
Part of our new weekly summer events calendar, every Monday up to 20 seats are available to discover the best new summer dining experience in Tucson.

Special beverage pairings are included!
Summer is here – and we couldn’t be more excited! Visit us each and every week this season to discover a different new event five days of the week! Also, in addition to the below calendar, visit us for our new summer Happy Hour featuring $7 signature cocktails, $4 craft beers, $2 off wines by-the-glass, as well as our new “Bites” menu of small plates designed to share or make a meal of their own!
Proper Tucson, one of downtown’s most recent eateries, added a new element to their already unique dining experience this past Friday, giving patrons one more reason to stop in and try some of their delectable “bites.” Its newly-opened patio seating area features an outdoor bar, giving the restaurant a new airy, open feel and an opportunity for guests to enjoy the springtime weather. “It adds a whole new element,” Kim Bower, Proper Tucson’s general manager said. “It’s super inviting.”
Happy Hour is a wonderful concept. What’s better than discounted food and drinks BEFORE you get your meal… umm nothing. It should really be called Happy Hour(s) though, because, really, why limit happy to an hour? Most last for a few hours, just enough time for customers to get slap happy and order more than they can handle. Oh the joys of cheap(er) drinks.
In our 2013 Best of Tucson issue, one of the staff picks called Proper’s Prop Prop Wings the “Best Future Addition to Tucson’s 100 Essential Dishes.” Proper’s sweet, spicy and fish-sauce funky take on Portland, Oregon’s famous Thai restaurant Pok Pok’s appetizer is among a bunch of their menu items that could have made this list, but since we called it back in October, we should probably stick to them.
