Cafe Poca Cosa Restaurant Review

: Chef Suzana Davila has been a part of Tucson’s dining scene for over twenty years. She successfully runs two of the city’s favorite restaurants, but Café Poca Cosa is the jewel in her crown. Created from market fresh ingredients, the dishes are both classic and modern. The menu is presented at the table via a chalkboard. You’ll always find fish, beef, pork, vegetarian and poultry options, but we suggest you opt for the Plato Poca Cosa. This is a chef’s choice of three menu items served with a frilly salad, ranchero beans and warm corn tortillas. If you’re lucky, you’ll get one of Davila’s famous moles; these selections are rich with chocolate, chiles, nuts and spices and meat that is as tender as possible. A specialty margarita is a perfect pairing.

Cafe Poca Cosa so dark you can't see your food

:( We had to wait 15 minutes from being seated to seeing our waitress. Ten minutes later our drinks arrived. Frozen margaritas were only average. Another ten minutes for someone to take our order. Then the sun went down, and it was so dark in the seats along the back of the restaurant that we literally could not see our food. There was something on top of my chicken, which when I cut it up and tasted it was a green chili, but you couldn't see it. My chicken was tough and tasteless.
