Welcome to Hot Rods Old Vail

Hot Rods Old Vail is Greater Tucson’s only racing themed bar and restaurant.

Bring the kids and watch motor legends come to life through the expansive garage bay windows. Buick, Ford, Chevrolet, International and more. Working restorations and automotive masterpieces taking shape before your eyes.

Satisfy your motor head and your appetite in a place like no other. Take your taste buds to the open road with the satisfying, old fashioned comfort foods from the diners of the days past. Enjoy our delicious menu of barbecue, sandwiches, pizza, pasta, and make your own burgers.

We offer fantastic dining specials during the UofA football season and regular football season. Join us for food & drink specials every game day, all season long!

So what is Hot Rods all about?

The open road in front of you, full of opportunity and adventure. The hum of eight cylinders under the hood. With each passing mile, the bond between man and machine grows.

As the miles stretch and the growl of the engine is matched only by the growling of your stomach. Just ahead, on the side of the expansive highway gleaming neon pierces the night. The iconic roadside diner appears like a mirage. With a turn of the wheel the big block Chevy purrs into a spot right next to the front door. Time to grab a meal and enjoy an experience you can only have on the open road…

Hot Rods Old Vail, it’s kind of like that.
