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

I always go to Poca Cosa when in Tucson. The food is always good and we sit on the patio if weather permits. You are surrounded by the city bustle, and it is somehow charming because of that. I had rellenos and chicken mole. It is served with a small side salad, a little fruit and we also had their... More

Don't judge a book by its cover or noise-level. This little nook n cranny spot is bursting with flavor and superb customer service. I've been here no less than 10 times and They've Never Disappointed! From presentation to the expeditious service, this pound for pound champ is one of Tucson's best!!!
