Every time we visit Simi Valley we generally have at least one meal at Don Cuco's. They really know how to take care of customers. They have astounding margueritas -- and they don't skimp on the tequila. The food is excellent. They are a little old style too. You get soup or salad before the meal. It's just great. What... More

Great place to meet for margaritas with friends and family, fresh chips and salsa, and great food. Service is great and the prices are great too! Has an outdoor patio and you have to be patient on finding a parking spot.

We found parking just fine. Outdoor patio was full. We walked in and sat at bar. Inside was full also. I counted 3 waitresses and one bartender. Its over priced imitation Mexican food. Bar tender did not give us a menu. We had to ask one of the waitresses. We Ordered with the waitress not the bar tender, who was... More

We used to go to Don Cuco's for brunch on special occasions. Now that I am living in Simi, we have been picking up take out to bring home. That place is always hopping! One of my only complaints is that it is hard to find a parking spot! Since being here I have had a pork burrito and a... More

We have dined at Don Cuco a few times and have not been impressed by their food and service. The menu has all the standard Mexican dishes - nothing novel. Although we do not judge restaurants by the size of their portions, their portions are smaller than what you get on most restaurants. The service was very slow and the... More

When tripadvisor asked what my favorite restaurant in Simi Valley is I thought of Don Cuco immediately. This place has been in Simi since as far back as I can remember - 1969 I think. I celebrated my 16th bday there, had the big sombrero put on my head and they took a polaroid picture of me. Well, I'm turning... More

My wife and I love dining at Don Cuco's. Its got the best Salsa ever. In fact its so good that you can make a meal with the salsa and chips alone. The fried ice-cream is great as are the entrees. We once went to celebrate my father-in-law's birthday. The friendly staff sang a Mexican 'mariachi' version of Happy Birthday... More
