What a horrific week for longtime Tucson restaurants! First we hear that three well-known Mexican restaurants are on the chopping block, and now we've confirmed that the Furr's Family Dining restaurant at Oracle and Wetmore roads has closed.
The Furr's on St. Mary's Road, however, remains open.
That Furr's on Oracle and Wetmore had been there for some 30 years. Can you imagine how many of those tiny dishes of canned green beans and Jell-o salad it served in that amount of time? It boggles the mind.
