        hello.. I highly recommend you eat at Poca Cosa, their is a larger resturant and a little one. The little one is called The Little Poca Cosa and the larger one is Cafe Poca Cosa. the little one is only breakfast and lunch, prices $7.00-8.50 loud music and much more casual atmosphere, Cafe Poca Cosa prices are $9 and up and much more of a relaxed very lovely eating experience. BOth places the food rocks the soul, menu at the the large one changes twice a day and is on a chalkboard brought to your table! I also recommend Barrio Grill, pricey, great ambiance, and lovely wine. Daisy Mae's steakhouse is awesome too! Hope this helps you out some and enjoy your Tucson stay..... Cheers!

        Poca Cosa and Feast are two outstanding, unique local restaurants.

          Another vote for Poca Cosa! We always have the "chef's choice" lunch, where you get 3 servings of different entrees, totally up to the chef. With the two of us, we get to taste 6 different entrees. But, the portions are big! You will not go away hungry - and unsatisfied in any way!

            I love Pico de Gallo in South Tucson on 6th Ave for lunch or a snack. Very local and very cheap. The quesadilla is fab and of course the pico de gallo-non traditonal in that it is fresh fruit(Mango, coconut, pineapple, melon, etc.) sprinkled with chile powder. Sounds weird, but it is a must.
