First time to visit. We were very impressed with the Chili Rellenos. The service was great and food was great, except the tortillas were not homemade.

I went to school in Albuquerque, and I really miss the New Mexican style food. I was pleased when this place opened near our home. Great food, attentive service, reasonable prices, attractive atmosphere. Now, if I could only get my wife to eat Mexican food!

My favorite breakfast location, love the chile relleno with hatch chile sauce. Excellent homemade tortillas ... What more could you want. Not a fancy place, I'd passed by many times, wished I had stopped here earlier. Friendly waitresses will stop and chat. They have a new place ... Much fancier and with alcohol, that's where I take my wife for... More

Went to their newer location on Tanque Verde and Sabino Canyon. Staff was friendly, place was hopping, and food was hot and delicious. Hubby and I had breakfast - Migas and Chorizo/Eggs Great Salsa. Will definitely visit for lunch/dinner.

I can eat this food all the time. If you enjoy green chiles and red chilies then this is the place for you. The recipes are rich in chile flavor and moderate heat. I ate a red chile relleno that was smothered in a green chile sauce an it was wonderful. I also ate a red chile soft taco that... More

I absolutely love this place! It's reasonably priced, the food is delicious, and all the workers are super friendly! A local favorite with a lot of character. Get the eggs with machaca and New Mexican green chile, it's to die for...

We ate at Poco and Mom's on Kolb in Tucson last night. The chips were delicate and crisp, and the salsa was flavorful with just the right amount of heat. We shared a plate of nachos piled high with silky refried beans and tender pork cubes in red sauce; we ate until we finally had to admit defeat. Our Albuquerque... More

We have lived in various parts of New Mexico over the past 45 years and to try to pass Poco and Mom's food off as real "New Mexican' food is a gross overstatement! We have been to the restaurant for dinner two times and will never go back. To begin with, the house margarita was virtually tasteless - but that... More
