Cafe Poca Cosa Restaurant Review

: Long before downtown Tucson became hip, people traveled there just to dine at Café Poca Cosa. Chef-owner Suzana Davila was part of the reason, but her food is what brought them back. Davila changes the menu twice daily based on what she buys at the market. Servers present a chalkboard menu at each table. Don’t be confused by all the tempting descriptions. Put yourself in Davila’s steady hands and order the Plato Poca Cosa, which delivers an assortment of three of the entrées on the menu (chef's choice), a mixed salad of fluffy greens and fresh fruit, churro beans and warm corn tortillas. Each guest gets a different combination; if you’re lucky you will receive the mole of the day, a dish that is savory, sweet, modern, traditional and totally unique. Sample one of the “exceptional margaritas” to make your evening complete.

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.
