More redneck than red wine, this working-class watering hole has been here since 1934. It's the only bar in Tucson that opens at 6a and, believe it or not, that's because they really get customers at that hour. Home of the "Happy Minute," in the evenings, everybody at The Buffet gets another of whatever they're drinking, on the house. Hot dogs are about as haute cuisine as it gets here.
