We had a light dinner in Don Cuco Mexican the other night in Burbank. Sat at the bar. It was a busy weekend night, and we just barely beat the large crowd, that kept coming. The chips and salsa were super, just super. Had a drink and a great draft Mexican beer. Our bartender was friendly and attentive, but never... More

I had dinner #40 a good Mexican Chicken Breast. Nicely done! However my partner had, I think dinner #59, which ended up to be mixed with a pack of frozen Chinese vegetables. So that wasn't too great. The chips and salsa did taste like homemade.

Menu says established in 1969 and you can see why it's still going strong. Right beside our cool hotel, The Tangerine, so a good spot for a late evening drink and a meal. Authentic food. Good service.

It all started with the warm chips. We knew we had found the right place. Everything we ordered was great. The chili con queso was amazing. The margarita was good perhaps not five star but overall very nice maybe a four star. Prices were reasonable but not cheap. Overall a very good experience. We will definitely be back

Being from Texas I'm a little hesitant and snobbish about eating Mexican food anywhere else but this place did not disappoint. We stayed at the Tangerine Hotel next door and they recommended eating here. Very good margaritas and an endless supply of chips and salsa. We ate here twice during a 4 days visit and both times the food was... More

The meal was very tasty. The wait staff was attentive and they kept the chips and salsa coming. Chips and salsa tasted homemade. We sat outside on the patio to enjoy the sunny weather. Location was easy to find. Would eat here again.

This place has hands down the best Mexican food I've ever experienced. While visiting LA, I knew the Latin dishes would be top notch, but this place is over the top delicious! The staff is very classy and sophisticated and go above and beyond to provide a top dining experience. I felt like I was sitting in a 5 star... More

The food was delicious! Very authentic. Nothing bad to say about the food. The service was a little slow. We had to always ask our waiter for things - even the bill.

We stayed at the Tangerine hotel next door and this place was recommended by the staff. Food was so good we went twice. My review won't do it justice so just go, and get the shrimp tacos they were fantastic
