Amazing food in a very small and cozy place. Lunch time might be crowded but it is totally worthy. The food tastes as home-made as you can hope.

Obviously tons of good Mexican food in Tucson, and this is the cheap and fast version of the bigger restaurant for downtown lunch hour goers etc. Very affordable and delicious, basic menu with only a few options under each category which makes it easy to pick your meal - and it's even an option to split two main dishes so...

What a wonderful dining experience. In downtown Tucson you'll find some great eateries, but the Cafe Poca Cosa tops the list. Fresh food with a different menu everyday is put together with myriad flavors. With a Mexican starting point, Poca Cosa invents new and reinvents the old standbys. This is one of our must stop places when we visit The... More

Friends took me here while I was visiting, and it was the best remedy for the second most nightmarish trip I have ever had. Everything hit the spot. The sauces were flavorful and smooth. Everything is fresh and served in abundance. The staff is very friendly, and you feel right at home. I would definitely return on my next trip... More

I absolutely LOVE this place! Granted, I am biased because I am best friends with one of the owners; but DO NOT BE MISLEAD! This is the BEST Mexican food in town. It is easy to get stuck on one's favourite dish: mine would be the Mole (pronounced Mo-lay) and the Chipotle Crema(although I think it's get a fancier name... More

This restaurant is in the hip entertainment district of old Tuscon, so lots of fun shops to visit before/after eating. The food was amazing, I had a skinless chicken breast in a warm cilantro olive oil dressing with green olives. The side salad on the plate was huge, very nicely presented. It was $15 for lunch, but I couldn't eat... More

You definitely want to stop here for lunch! Meats simmered to perfection accompanied by fresh veggies & fruit! What more could you ask for?
