My husband and I love authentic Mexican food and drinks, but if that's what your looking for this is not the place for you. We were impressed by the variety of tequilas that were offered and the margaritas we ordered were average. As far as the food, the appetizers were the best part, we got Snakebites and Avocado Fries, both... More

My wife and I have been to Poco's a couple of times now and have enjoyed it very much. They have a good menu and great drinks as well. The location is also very nice as it is next to the water.

I ordered the fish tacos on corn tortillas. The fish and sauce were amazing, however the corn tortillas could've been made a little better. They fell apart on the first bite. I would recommend steaming them.

Went there for a late dinner. The staff was great, knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. We sat and sipped good tequila after we finished eating and never felt rushed. Really liked this place!

My wife and I stopped in here today unexpectedly after a stop at a local wine shop, but we were pleasantly surprised. A nice setting with very friendly staff overlooking the Piscataqua river makes this a great setting for wonderful margaritas (a bit pricy on their drinks) and fresh and traditional mexican fare. I had the house special burrito and... More

We stopped here with friends while on vacation. We had missed our exit in Kittery and this was the next exit as we headed south on I-95. We had been here several times many years ago when the restaurant was called Poco Diablo's and were glad that we found it again. We were seated outside on the covered deck which... More

The outdoor seating was covered but open to the beautiful sea-side breeze. Very relaxing! Get the nachos with buffalo chicken in them. YUM!
