Last time I was there, I specifically asked for "no ******" because I am allergic. My food comes, half covered in something that can literally kill me. When I explained this to the server, she took it back to the kitchen and returned within 2 minutes with the same order, with the portion that was covered in ****** now covered in sour cream. The server explained that the kitchen staff refused to make another one and that I should just eat it. My parents, wife, and 2 daughters were with me and the lunch bill was over $100. Their lack of caring, and willingness to get sued is very disconcerting. I'm just glad that I noticed that they covered what I am allergic to before I took a bite...
Bad experience ordered the enchiladas de la case huge portion but no sauce. I mean no sauce when I asked for sour cream the waiter started they didn't serve sour cream. So what's up the sauce for the dish is mostly sour cream. Just saying if your out of something don't serve it have assed.
Wow, I'm shocked at the bad reviews on here. There's 0% chance that a anyone had an experience like that-- and those users only ever gave one review....hmmmm. They are always kind to everyone and have some of the best tasting food in Tucson. I hope people see past the negativity and give it a shot. It's my go-to for lunch dates with friends I meet up with downtown. The only bummer is they only accept cash-- but I go at least twice a month so obviously it's not a deal breaker lol. They have like 4(?) kinds of fresh juice and their combination plate is always an enjoyable surprise. I highly recommend their chicken mole and their vegetarian tamale :)
We love the LIttle Poca Cosa. The food fresh and delicious, and the service warm and friendly. In fact, we are heading out with our family in about 5 minutes to enjoy another thoroughly enjoyable lunch at our favorite little corner restaurant in Tucson ..
Has it reopened?
Will never patronize this restaurant ever again!. They wouldn't accept a $100 gift certificate. We received it as a gift from some grateful friends, but management wouldn't honor it. WHY NOT? It's equivalent to us having paid for our meal in advance. Definitely not a sound business approach for endearing themselves to their customers.
Terrible food and the owner is incredibly rude. I've seen him harass cyclists and customers. Perhaps if he spent as much time working on his business as he does bothering customers it'd be worth eating here. As it stands, better to run the other way.
The negative comments are TOTAL BS. In fact, as one could easily figure out: one is written by a competitor and the other by a person who had taste bud lobotomy '
I could cry. Yes its that bad, the service, is deplorable, small portions, of not very good food, horrible chairs,
and the only thing that i can say was good, was the nice waiter, the bus boy, ect. I have never seen anything like this. the only good thing was the refried beans. Go to Mi Nidito (520) 622-5081 - 1813 S 4th Ave, Tucson, AZ , that is where I am going to from now on. Trust me this place is a disaster , and even with a reservation you are greeted with the most unfriendly hostess.
Mosaic is not the same restaurant I remember. Went there for New Year Eve lunch 12/31/14. Asked for a window seat,(there were plenty) and got seated in a plastic bush in the center of the room. Across the way,a tablecloth was draped over a table that had the top glass over its contents broken,that was left there next a to the window....where some of us would have liked to sit.The waitress warned us about the new waiter that would be taking our order,and mentioned that she would make sure he got it right.Which he did,but then we never were checked on after that,until he brought the check.Our table had only forks on a napkin,as did most of the tables with diners and without. As I pondered whether it was a new Mexican tradition to eat with only forks,I noticed that 4 recently seated diners had knives and forks. Okay....dishwasher problem,not enough utensils,who knows....But I will not be returning to Mosaic any time soon.Shoddy shoddy shoddy without the dialed down drink or menu prices.
Exquisite food and presentation, one of the best barbacoa burrito tacos etc. I've tasted in any Mexican/ American restaurants available in the Tucson n surrounding areas but don't just go by what your reading please feel free to explore the menu for your self many amazing dishes here n friendly services
We have been eating at Little Poca Cosa now The Little One for 13 years. We ate there yesterday. When I saw the name change I was concerned that the ownership changed. What a relief to see Sandra! When you decide on The Little One for lunch you get the loud music and a joyous owner. It rocks. Our group ordered 3 Chicken Moles and 1 Tamale, Ginger Basil Lemonade and 2, "you can get those anywhere drinks".
This is lunch and a love fest. If you don't want to pay cash, go with the flow and give hugs, there are plenty of other places in downtown that are less colorful and cost more. For those who think this freshly prepared, locally sourced, original menu items are pricey, this isn't McDonald's! It is very good value for the price.
Not sure what is up with the negative comments. . . I have never had anything but PHENOMENAL meals at The Little One; there isn't a bad choice on the menu. My personal favorites are the Cochinito en Chipotle, and the Mole; also unbelievable Chile Rellenos and Tamales, AND AMAZING limonadas and fresh fruit drinks that will KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF!!! (try the beet-mandarin limonada if she has it). Incredibly fresh food made with love, and, yes, hugs (and generally kisses too) are mandatory. Service is fast and friendly. SO, if you are uptight you might not like the vibe (loud music and an owner who loves her patrons), but only a fool or a philistine would not love the food!
We ordered the cheese crisp. We forgot to order chiles on it. When she brought it back it had green peppers on it. I said these are green peppers, and she told the cook and he said no, those are green chiles. Ok. Bottom line is I was born in Tucson and raised on sonoran style Mexican food. I KNOW the difference between the two. Don't insult me by telling me different. And, and, the beans I ordered maybe were four tablespoons full. If the young man who came to the table to sooth us is the owner, oh, my, god. Good luck in the future little boy, were gone and won't be back. Barry A Malone
Teresa's is not the same. It used to be terrific and we ate there all the time and brought friends and visitors with us. Now the food is terrible. The service was always bad but with bad food I will not be going there anymore and not recommending it to my friends and family. Sonny, you need to wise up and run like your father did.
horrible service, horrible food, long wait time, staff could care less!
Salsa is made at your table FRESH. Many tasty dishes and vege choices. Mariachi band can be a bit loud. Best Mexican restaurant on the east side, by far.
It's been a favorite of mine for many years. I've been going there since they took over the place from its previous owners. Great for breakfast and lunch. Get there early for lunch because the crowd from D-M fills it up.
When did Lupita's close, the building space is vacant with the sign gone??
The Metzger is excellent. It was my favorite of the 3 specialty tacos. Served with au jus? Creative. Although it was plain as day, I had to ask what it was because it was a surprise to see it accompany a taco. Don't dip it, just dump it on top.
Time your visit for 645pm on a Sunday. Sit on the patio and you'll get an eyeful when Hi Fi across the street raises those massive sunscreens. It's a PG13 glass fishbowl. What a party! Video wall, DJ on stage and Go Go Girls dancing in silhouette on the bar.
Say what you want to about the spotty "service" but I see the General Manager humping it the whole time. That's good enough for me.
As for people constantly wanting to F I L L themselves: those who live in fat asses should not throw stones. Ya Taco Bell pig out monkeys. Stay out of our way if it's possible to move your fat ass aside far enough for others to pass.
