2. Take Mom to Lunch or Dinner at Pit Stop Gourmet Burgers
Pit Stop Gourmet Burgers took Cochise County by storm with their food truck. Now they've moved to a brick-and-mortar building - the old Outside Inn restaurant at 4907 S Highway 92 in Sierra Vista. They're going to be open from 11am to 6pm on Sunday.
