My son recommended we stop here due to the reviews. We loved every second here. A little over a dozen entrees that change every day. Chicken, beef, fish and vegetarian options very uniquely presented. 2 people could probably share an entree, very generous in size....More

This place came highly recommended, looked good upon entering and they're clearing trying hard. But when you added it all up, the meal was entirely underwhelming. Was the first restaurant we tried on a month long trip to Tucson (highly recommend the city by the...More

Our friends from Germany visit us every year and one of the places we enjoy going to is Café Poca Cosa which I like to define as sophisticated Mexican cuisine. The food is delicious and we were never disappointed by the flavors, quantity or presentation....More

Wonderful hostess ( perhaps the owner?) and wait staff. Friendly, warm & accomodating. You truly feel welcome here. The food however is forgettable. Huge plates of chicken or beef topped with one of several sauces to define the dish (mole, tomato or cream.) and CHEESE....More

Much hyped in Tucson, but in my opinion not warranted. About a dozen entrees on a blackboard, none of which was particularly creative or inspiring. Our group had chicken, beef and pork dishes, all meat was overcooked and didn’t,t have much flavour much the sauces....More

This restaurant has interesting and delicious food. A small menu means they pay close attention to what they present —and it shows! Also, this was the best margarita I’ve ever had. If I lived in Tucson this would be a regular place for me.

To be honest I don't know. You may want to call them. I don't believe the meal I got even had any gluten. It's all meat and vegetables. Maybe the rice and tortillas probably have gluten. I would call them.

They have a very limited menu so I wouldn't be surprised if there aren't gluten free options, but I have no idea.
