A speedy reversal of firearms policy
Chipotle's University Boulevard location was the first alcohol-serving restaurant to post a "No Firearms" sign pursuant to Arizona's new law allowing concealed carry in alcohol-serving establishments.
It's also, as far as I can tell, one of the first to reverse such a policy, much to its credit. Eating a burrito doesn't make a responsible gun-owner turn in to a murderous lunatic--and the claim that concealed-carry permit holders are dangerous is simply not supported by Arizona's fifteen years of experience with concealed carry.
Among alcohol-serving Tucson restaurants without the "we don't want your business" (or "we're hoplophobic weenies") signs include Zachary's Pizza, The Fat Greek, Pho 88, and Bob Dobbs. Post others in the comments section.
