We are SF hounds planning a five day trip to Tucson in a few weeks. In prior visits, I've enjoyed Mariscos Chihuahua, but I can't remember which location we ate at. Are there any differences in quality between them?
We also are looking for good breakfast spots. So far, I have Frank's, B Line Cafe and Poco and Mom and Beyond Bread on the list. In Phoenix, we loved Dick's Hideaway for its New Mexican breakfasts. Is Poco and Mom comparable? Any others to consider?

I've only gone to the Mariscos Chihuahua on 22nd. I'm pretty sure they're all owned by the same folks, so it should be consistent.
Poco and Mom's is one of my favorite breakfast places. The chile rellenos for breakfast are genius. I've never been to Dick's, but Poco and Mom's should be similar - they do New Mexican fare and a busy breakfast trade. Be prepared to wait on weekend mornings, especially with the snowbirds.
Laverna's on Plumer and Broadway is my favorite greasy spoon for breakfast.
Hope this helps.
If you want a gut buster country style breakfast the the Happy Rooster on Sarnoff just north of 22nd. ST. For Mexican breakfast try Chacos on S. Craycroft near the AFB main gate. I've only ate at the MC on E. 22nd and it was always good. Poco & Moms is great for breakfast but jammed most of the time, gotta get there real early.

My beloved son worked at beyond bread for 5.5 years, and just left to take 17 units in college this semester (end of brag- he's only 22)
Beyond bread is good, better, I think, for lunch or dinner than breakfast.But you'll like whatever you get.
The rest I agree with too 8^)
