Americans are increasingly electing to eat in Mexican restaurants, especially in the Southwest where Hispanic traditions are strong. This study draws upon survey and directory information in an attempt to analyze the changes in number, distribution and landscape attributes of Mexican restaurants in Tucson, Arizona. It concludes that as Mexican cuisine attracted a greater clientele, the landscape of these restaurants changed to enhance the ethnic character of the establishments.
