In 1971, two kids, Ed Irving and Bob Greenberg, concocted a particularly delicious slushy lemonade and, driving a beat-up panel truck, took a batch to a construction site on Tucson’s east side. The construction workers loved the cold treat, but they clamored for food as well. So it was that Eegee’s, formed from the first and last names of the partners, was born. Today there are two dozen Eegee’s scattered around Tucson, with a satellite up the road in Casa Grande, serving that slushy lemonade and other drinks along with grinders, subs, fries, and salads. See the website for locations apart from the flagship store on Tucson’s east side.
