I've heard and read so much about this place - all glowing, I tried to visit the "original" but it was closed. We ate at the "fancier" site. I ordered the chike relleno with green chile cream sauce and was not disappointed. The beans were also good as was the salsa. I wasn't fond of the rice, but I will... More

We have eaten at Poco and Mom's several times while visiting family in Tucson. We have always had friendly, courteous service. The food is good, the service is always friendly - and it's always full of customers! I recently tried the Machaca in a Chimichanga and it was much tastier that I even expected!

Their larger restaurant on Tanque Verde offers both a lovely patio setting as well as wonderful food! Unique in that they cook Mexican food in the New Mexico style with both green and red Hatch chili's. The food is very fresh and you can request the degree of 'hotness'. Food presentation and server service is very good. If you appreciate... More

I used to live in Tucson and whenever I come back, I make it a point to eat at this tiny, hole in the wall restaurant. Parking is close and sufficient. Just walk in and grab a table. Super fast and friendly service will fetch you your drink of choice along with chips and really tasty salsa. My favorite dish... More

Whenever we are visiting Tucson, this is our first stop. The shredded beef tacos and breakfast burros are fantastic. This is a must for anyone who appreciates authentic food.

How do you know if you are in a New Mexican style restaurant? Ask for your enchiladas Christmas style. If the arrive at your table smothered in both red and green chile, you know you're good. Poco and Mom's delivers an amazing dining experience, featuring Hatch green chile. If you're a fan of authentic New Mexican cuisine, this is a... More

The food and the combo plates are fantastic. Seating is a little tight but it is a great place to take people to introduce them to Mexican food or enjoy traditional favorites.

We ate at the one near Sabino Canyon. Since it's a chain, we weren't sure what to expect. One reviewer called it Tex-Mex, but it's not like any Tex-Mex I have ever had, it was much better. It's definitely New Mexico style. I grew up in Arizona and enjoy Sonoran style Mexican food, but this was a very good alternative.... More
