Good Food And Service

Went here with 4 adults and a 2 yr. old. We were quickly seated, and our drink order taken. Our food order was taken when the server brought our beverages. The food was quickly delivered to our table. All of the food was hot, and was tasty. Great place for a small get together over Mexican... read more

They have always been a great place to stop and eat. The food isn't fantastic, but always good enough to eat.

I love their food, especially the stuffed avocados. I highly recommend Los Cucos! The atmosphere and staff and friendly as well.

Great Mexican food located in an old shopping strip in Old Katy. Don't let the location throw you off - once you are inside the restaurant you will see people from all over. And don't even bother trying out the other Los Cucos at Katy Mills. THAT one is snooty, and the food not the same qualityhungry at this Los... More

I rate every Mexican restaurant on three categories: the food, the chips/salsa, and the margaritas. Most restaurants do well in one or two categories but rarely in all three. This place was the exception. It got my top score in all three categories. In addition, the service was great and the atmosphere was fun, much more interesting than the tacky... More

Simple the BEST Mexican restaurant in Katy. Period. Don't bother going to the other Los Cucos at Katy Mills. Their service is snooty and slow, food not as good. This Los Cucos in Old Katy is worth the trip. Located in an old shopping strip, although it may not be glamorous don't let it fool you.

Returned to this restaurant and found that it is being eclipsed by several new Tex-mex eateries. Lack of atmosphere except for Friday's when they have Mariachis.

Went to Los Cucos for dinner while in Houston. Service is very hit and miss. Had to all for water refills several times, but was repeatedly asked if I wanted another beer. Food was actually pretty good. I had a carnitas plate which was uniformly good.
