Sat night dinner

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

Whenever we return to this area to visit family or friends, we always go to Don Cuco for the first night's dinner. It's an important tradition. This is good, basic Mexican food. Yes, cooked for gringo palates, but very well done. The menu is pretty much what you'd expect, but the warm welcome is way up there. From the hostess... More

This was next door to my hotel and I was surprised that it was open a little later than most other things in the area. I did not order an entree here but the chips and salsa were very good. The drink was fine. I have had better, but it wasn't bad. This place has a very old school vibe... More

Whenever I've been traveling, my first stop on the way home from the the airport is Don Cucos. The basic fare is wonderful, delicious. The shredded beef tacos are something I dream of. Not to mention a full bar and great margaritas.

If you are in the mood for a strong margarita, great appetizers, and delicious Mexican cuisine. Come to Don Cucos. The service is top notch... your water is always filled, empty plates just disappear from the table - your next entree is hot - tasty - and quick. My parents and a friend went to dinner here one night...we ordered... More

I've been to Don Cuco's for years. Lunch and Dinner, it doesn't matter. My favorite are the chicken tacos. Very friendly staff, and family owned business.

The food is very delicious and the service is good. Taste like a home cooked meal. Been here a few times and the service and consistency is similar.
