Good food... Busy place!

Decent Mexican cuisine in the heart of Burbank. They must be doing something right as there was a wait for a table on a Monday evening. The margaritas were pretty good as well. Lighting was a little on the dark side so it made identifying food items a little difficult. Service was friendly and the... read more

The food, service, and margaritas were all excellent. I get to Burbank about once a year on business and plan to eat here from now on for each and every trip. The queso fundido is to die for!

The bar area is a regular stop for happy hour with co-workers. They put out appetizers and vary the selection frequnetly. The servise is prompt and the servers friendly. I would rate the margaritas a 7/10, not always that string but the atmosphere and the free sppetizers make it a 9/10. I have also had food off the regular menu... More

Wow! what a great restaurant. The food is authentic with large portions; the Margaritas are nice and strong; and the dining room is old fashion with mood lighting. Frequented by locals.

We enjoyed our dinner out on the sidewalk, where the waitstaff kept us filled with tortilla chips and two kinds of salsa. The chicken tortilla soup was very good, and the entrees were huge.

Wonderful staff, great food and margaritas. We have been going to Don Cuco for years. The atmosphere is very welcoming. We can always count on a pleasant evening as a couple or with a large group.

Delicious authentic Mexican food. The drinks are also better than most Mexican restaurants. The staff has been there for many years and they are friendly and treat customers like family. I highly recommend the fajitas and their margaritas!

Love this place. Great comfortable cushioned booths. Fajitas are the prize here. Meetball soup over iceberg lettuce salad is alway my choice for starter. But, if you have a hankering for salad, go for the gooey blue cheese dressing. The staff does not turn over here and everyone is swell. Good margaritas.

This place is great! From the appetizers to the main dish the food and drinks were fantastic! The atmosphere and booths were great too, I really like that my husband and I were able to scoot next to each other and enjoy a romantic dinner. If we lived closer I'd be a regular lol. If you are in the area... More

Being from Florida, we don't have really good authentic Mexican food available to us. Don Cuco served great Mexican food to us in a friendly manner and this combination made for a memorable dinning experience.
