Everything on their menu is spot on. Rarely does a place make pulled pork as well as they make avocado fritters, but Poco Loco knocks it out of the park. All star guac & great prices. Staff is always so friendly & attentive. Never a...bad experience here. They also have a food truck but I've found their store front to be the real star.More

This is a great stop for a quick, delicious taco. This small, intimate shop is conveniently located on a main street in Cranston just blocks from Warwick, and walking distance to historic Pawtuxet Village.

I have a problem with most "mexican" places. Too much this or that ...they try too hard. Poco Loco is just the opposite, nice clean mexican tacos, burritos, quesadeas etc. made to order and if you want this or that they have it!. You can...eat them there with a soft drink or take them home. The place is small (maybe 8 tables) but most people are taking the food to go so you could move the tables around for a large group. Customers and staff is friendly but you do not have the feeling of walking into a "click" . After all of this did I tell you the food is amazing? You will not be disappointed with the service (no table service) or the patrons/staffMore

While Poco's offers an interesting and impressive variety of tacos, nothing is really noteworthy in the taste department. This is not to say the food isn't good--it does qualify as good. It merely means that Poco apparently spent all its imagination and creativity dreaming up...what kind of tacos they would provide but had no imagination or creativity left over in the kitchen itself. Prices are somewhat higher than they should be, which tics down the rating,but a friendly and helpful workers are a notch up from good, and the place itself is fine. Should you go? Well, I wouldn't not go, especially if you are hungry and happen to be passing by, but two visits were more than enough for me, especially with so many other places around that have imaginative and creative kitchens.More

Good place for tacos, not that authentic. Would recommend getting the plain tacos with just the meat, onions/tomatoes and cilantro. Good price though, 2$/taco. They have lots of variations, got the napalm and southwest, both were alright.

Last-minute decision to go had no idea that it even existed and left the place totally jazzed that we had discovered it. Cheap fantastic Nuevo Mexicana. Yes. I got the veggie special. Could not have been more happy with sweet potato feta burrito.

We love going here. Great tacos and burritos. The specials should always be considered. They tend to be a little more on the edge, and usually pretty amazing. Anyway, the base menu is great too; just build your own like lots of other places. We...also like the chorizo and potato burrito.More
