Best Of Tucson®

Best Mexican

Café Poca Cosa

The consistent accolades for this perennial winner aren't isolated to Tucson: Chef and owner Suzana Davila has been featured in national publications such as The New York Times, Gourmet Magazine and Better Homes and Gardens. The food is always beautiful, fresh and incredibly flavorful. The menu changes daily, but there's almost always a creamy tamale-pie entrée, along with carne, pollo and pescado dishes. We've said it before, and we'll say it again: Your best bet is always the Plato Poca Cosa, which is Davila's choice of three entrées on one plate. Complement it with one of Poca Cosa's margaritas and the Mexican chocolate mousse for dessert.
