Sorry but I have never liked this place. If you want authentic Mexican food go somewhere else. The food is pretentious . overpriced, and not very tasty. They are more concerned with how it looks then how it tastes. Go to El Charros instead or find a food truck.

This place is small but mighty when it comes to flavor. We went with chef's choice and were wowed with our lunch. Yummy lemonades, juices and iced teas as well. We dined out fancy and casual over 3 days in Tucson -- this place by far rocked the food with fresh ingredients and homemade excellence.

The Little One is little. The ambiance, attitude of the waitress etc. is designed to be "cool" and "hip". The restaurant reminded me of "Two Sisters Bakery" in Homer, Alaska. However, there is a big difference between the two. The "Twin Sister Bakery" food is very good; "the Little One" food on the other hand is average. I ordered the... More

This restaurant will amaze you with their fresh menu. Almost all items are loaded with fresh seasonal vegetables. You will not leave hungry. The menu is unique in every way and changes weekly. I found all the dishes to be full of flavor and in many cases spicy. The spices are South American usually, and are just used so nicely.... More

Excellent food prepared using whole clean food- with a special Mexican flare. Get there early as this small place fills fast. I had the huevos rancheros- fantastic large portion and plenty left over to take home.

Small, busy, and friendly, the food is amazing! The chicken soup was full of chicken. The pork was so tender it practically melted in your mouth.

A friend from Tucson said this is the place for breakfast and lunch. We stopped for breakfast on the way to dropping me off at the airport. The breakfast was beyond all expectations; to the point, I wanted to miss my flight and stay through lunch. I had the Chorizo Scrambled and key lime w/ prickly pear juice. It was,... More

If you like the wow factor & enjoy good food, opt for the kitchen choice plate. They will put together a plate with a generous spoonful of a chicken, pork & beef entree plus rice & beans & top it off with a tossed salad & fresh fruit. You won't necessarily find what you are enjoying on the menu either!... More

The service was excellent; the food very tasty and prices reasonable. The chicken soup was chock full of veggies and the chicken pieces were tender and the soup seasoned very well giving it an excellent flavor. This is a keeper!

Eat here for breakfast or lunch, they are closed for dinner. You can hit the larger cafe poca visa for later. I could tell you what I ordered but it doesn't matter everything is wonderful at this place. You will not find better beans or rice and they are vegan. Okay then there is the charm, warmth and friendliness. This... More
