My husband and I first discovered Cafe Poca Casa in 2012. Two years later, we moved to Tucson. Coincidence? Not at all! At the time, we had a vision of Tucson as being slightly run down. Charming but not exactly the place for a shot...More

A perfect place to meet up for great food and drinks downtown. I love the chefs plate, the unique and fresh plating and the energy put into doing things their own way. Excellent service and such a comfortable space

So very different yet consistently fabulous, You wouldn’t believe the incredible menus they put together. Lovely place consistently delicious and well it’s flavorful, not too spicy. Unless you asked for it. A very upscale Mexican restaurant, not to be missed

Cozy restaurant in downtown Tucson. Creative Mexican fare, a bit eclectic. Suggest reservations due to popularity.

If there is one place i town overrated..it’s this one...drinks kinda bland and unfriendly atmosphere. The ton of over dressed salad they place on the plate only makes the skimpy potion of protein look smaller..No longer a fan..

Never disappointed with a meal here, if it were closer to home would go there more often. No printed menu, on a chalk board as it changes all the time. The mixed plate is always good, you get 3 different items. Beautifully arranged on your...More

To be honest I don't know. You may want to call them. I don't believe the meal I got even had any gluten. It's all meat and vegetables. Maybe the rice and tortillas probably have gluten. I would call them.

They have a very limited menu so I wouldn't be surprised if there aren't gluten free options, but I have no idea.
