Used to go there once a week when I worked down town. It was such a treat for me at the end of the work week. The food is fresh and flavorful. No longer work down town and miss going there. Last time I was there was in 2008. Geez too long to stay away. I recommend folks to try this restaurant. You will be pleased.

Unique does not begin to describe the food and the atmosphere of Cafe Poca Cosa. The specially prepared meals are made daily with surprises each time you visit. Care and time are put into fine details of unusual spices and flavors. The best is the Chef special which will give you a taste of three different entrees, but it is the chef's decision as to what they will be. Be a bit daring and you will be glad that you did. Beware, they close for a month in the summer. After eating there in December, I had hoped to return with my family, but I found out about their closer after arriving in Tucson.

The only thing that I didn't like about this place was there was too much food. But all of it was tasty and really lovely atmosphere. Margaritas are top notch too.

We have been coming here since they were in their former rustic very Mexican building. This is very upscale New York glitzy looking by comparison. That said, you will not fine more adventersome Mexican eating anywhere. You will see the hands-on owner on every visit and most likely visit with her. You can make life simple for yourself and just go straight to the bottom of the chalkboard menu and order the Poca Cosa Plato, which will give you a CHEF'S choice of a smaller portion of three of the menu items listed above. Sounds risky, but a bit adventuresome and never a disappointment. We would drive down from Phoenix to eat here. This is the real deal. Don't expect the basic twenty-item staples menu you find at every other Mexican restaurant. You're in for a real treat here.
