February 28, 2017Kon Tiki in Tucson Arizona
By Sara In AZ
OK, last week I told y’all all about the antiquing Mike and I did around Tucson… this week I will let you in on more Tucson fun we had…..we finally made it to the Kon Tiki tiki bar!!!!
I had been wanting to go to this tiki bar for awhile but we just never had a chance to make it there, finally the time was right and we could squeeze it into our schedule!
Welcome to the Kon Tiki!
The Kon Tiki has been open continuously since 1961!
Here is their newly carved tiki statue from Danny “Tiki Diablo” Gallardo – the first new tiki statue they’ve had carved for the Kon Tiki in over 50 years!.
As the sign says “Welcome To Paradise”!
Ok, first question when you arrive at a tiki bar….what are we going to drink?!
We decided to get a Strawberry Scorpion Bowl for one and split it! We would have ordered a bowl for 2, but since we were driving right back to Phoenix when we left the Kon Tiki we played it safe!
We decided to order a bunch of appetizers so we could try a lot of different foods they had to offer. We ordered the Kon Tiki Combo Plate, the Kahlua Pulled Pork Sliders and the Monkeys on a Stick. We were starving when we got there so ordering all these appetizers worked out really well for us and……we were absolutely stuffed when we left! We loved everything we ate, it was all fabulous!
From what the staff told us the décor is mostly original from when the Kon Tiki opened in 1961.
Honestly, I LOVE this place! I only wish I lived closer…I’d probably be in there ALL the time!!! All of the staff we interacted with were super friendly, the food was great and the drink was fabulous! Also, don’t let my pictures fool you…..we got there early so we could beat the crowds, by the time we left the Kon Tiki the place was packed!
It was totally a blast visiting the Kon Tiki, if you are ever in Tucson be sure to stop in!
