Any particular part of town you'll be visiting? I'll get the ball rolling here.
I enjoy a plate of carne seca at El Charro, downtown. http://www.elcharrocafe.com/
Barrio Grill, downtown is nice. http://www.barriofoodanddrink.com/
When I want a beer and a burger I hit ol' Bob Dobbs. 2501 E. 6th Street
Cafe Poca Cosa, another cool joint. http://cafepocacosatucson.com/
Kingfisher is nice. I hear the brisket is good. Yummy grilled tuna steak. http://kingfishertucson.com/
Had a sandwich at Time Market Deli recently, but just because we were snubbed at Cup Cafe. I guess you need reservation these days. We sucked down a couple cervesas at the Tap Room and split for Time Market. 444 E. University Blvd.

I don't know Kingfisher but I can confirm the first three recommendations are super-tasty. My vote would be for El Charro.

Yoshimatsu, for great Bento and awesome Udon noodles. 2660 N. Campbell
For Thai, try Karunas Thai Plate 1911 E. Grant (Grant & Campbell)
Blue Willow for breakfast, 2616 N Campbell. http://www.bluewillowtucson.com/
Pat's Drive in has a killer chili dog. 1202 W. Niagara St. A Tucson institution. Maybe sketchy neighborhood for some.

A wandering FYI. I am going to a MeetUp tonight for Happy Hour at the Kon Tiki and I visited their web site to preview their drinks menu, nothing Tiki that grabbed me so I'll stick with my usual gin martini, straight up, wet, three olives. They do have an Events section and in it the promote Fat Tuesday, Valentine's Day, etc. and their 50th Anniversary which all Tucson Modern-ians should find of interest.

http://www.kontikitucson.com/events.html

From the site -
Join us as we celebrate our 50th Anniversary!

Live Music inside and outside, a new Limited Edition Mug designed by Doug Horne, vendors, a special menu featuring many of our drinks at their original 1963 prices and more!
