Late night food and drink, very old school.

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... read 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.

We went here because: 1. The reviews on Trip Advisor looked good. 2. We both love Mexican. 3. It was right next to our hotel and after a long day of travel and settling in, it was great to have a place we could just walk to. Pros: 1. The decor was a bit cheesy, but I personally liked it.... More

Great margaritas, fantastic service and an extensive menu that won't disappoint. I've brought many an east coast friend here who is craving Mexican food, and they all leave very happy! We are made to feel like family, thanks to it being a local for us. Love it!!

We saw the restaurant's sign from our hotel , Tangerine next door. Ask at the front desk and they said we had to go there! We did and we loved it! Great food! And great staff made our late lunch meal very enjoyable!
