  7. Spice Garden Indian Cuisine - 5815 N Arizona Pavilions Dr #155 (off Cortaro Road in between Harkins Arizona Pavilions 12 and Boston Market) - Open for dine-in or you may order takeout online with convenient ordering and payment. Yelp reviews claim that Spice Garden Indian Cuisine is the best Indian restaurant in the region. 
  8. Tacos Apson - 6741 N. Thornydale Rd., Ste. 121 - Tacos Aspon just opened their second location. The original location was reviewed by the Los Angeles and NYC restaurant critic, Ruth Reichl. 
  9. Jack in the Box - 13925 N Sandario Road off the I-10/Marana Road exit - Open for business.
  10. Crema Coffee on Ina Road - W Ina Rd/Thornydale, 3725 W Ina Rd #12 (Near Bookman’s in southeast Marana) - Crema Coffee instantly brought Marana’s libations game up a few notches. It’s a minimalist temple to serious coffee drinking, using Exo Roast Co. beans and providing the kind of experience you might find in Portland, OR. It’s that good. Tucson Foodie caught up with the owners to get their take on serving craft coffee.
  11. Serial Grillers Express - 5660 W. Cortaro Farms Road near the I-10 freeway - The #1-rated pizza place on Yelp with a fierce cult following. Open for take out with online ordering, and dine-in. 
  12. Smoothie King - River Road at Orange Grove and a second location at Twin Peaks Road and Silverbell - (walk-in and drive-through). Smoothie King on River Road is two doors down from Jimmy’s Pita and Poke Bowl. This poses a dilemma. What is the proper food order, smoothies first or poke? Smoothie King offers smoothies that taste better than any we’ve had in years. The numerous options are categorized by dietary and energy needs. The ingredients are natural, organic, and aren’t common allergens. Both locations have drive-through windows. We’re addicted.
  13. Taqueria Plaza's - Sandario Road off the I-10 on the west side (13526 N Sandario Rd, Marana, AZ 85653 in the First Baptist Church courtyard across the street from Family Dollar Store) - At this food truck, you'll find classic fresh and meaty food truck tacos. Taqueria Plaza is a gem that locals highly recommend.

Opening Soon

  1. Taco Bell - Sandario Road at the I-10 freeway near Marana Main Street. Construction is almost completed and could open in one to two months.
  2. Eegee's - Marana Road at the I-10 freeway near Marana Main Street. Has not broken ground yet.
