Lunch visit-tried chicken tacos

Tried the lunch chicken tacos. They were okay but nothing special IMO. In fact, they were a little too spicy for my liking. Had the tableside guacamole too and it was very good though. Overall, I am a little disappointed in the food today so I wont order this lunchtime meal again.

My husband and I are avid Los Cucos goers. We have ate at multiple Los Cucos' in many areas and love this restaurant dearly. We went to this location at Panther Creek in the Woodlands and had the most awful dinning experience we have ever had at any restaurant. Our server never came to our table, it took 15 minutes...

Fajitas sizzling are one of my favorites as well as table made guacamole. Wait staff is prompt and friendly. Tea and water refilled without asking. Bar drinks are large and happy hour is a bargin.

First time and i believe last one! Service is not the best and food quality is really bad. Poor presentation, over seasoned! Bad experience overall!

Having lived in Texas for quite some time I know what good Mexican food tastes like and this was probably the worst. This is a chain so other Los Cucos locations might be better but because of my experience with the one in The Woodlands, I won't try any of the others. To say the food was inedible would be... More

First time to visit this restaurant, staff seemed annoyed. Shown to a table with no conversation or acknowledgment that we were paying customers. Waiter looked through us like he didn't want to be there. After delivering our meal we politely pointed out that we needed utensils and napkins. He gave us a look as though we were just a bother....

Was recommended to us by our realtor as we were home shopping in the area, and it was very good. Busy but we only waited about five minutes. Place was packed and the food was very tasty. Service was good. Will go back!

I know other restaurants are more famous (e.g. Chuy's, Pappasitos, Guadalajara) BUT none of them compare to Los Cucos. A family favorite for lunch or dinner, the food is always delicious and the menu expansive. The staff is hilarious and always polite. If I could eat here everyday I would! Only negative thing, you will smell like a fajita after... More

This is a restaurant that has been around a long time. It's good, very reasonable, Tex-Mex. I have a daughter who moved to another state and when she comes home, this is the first place she goes.

Los Cucos has been in The Woodlands the longest of any of the Mexican restaurants and there's a reason why. Good food and service! Although some of the waiters can be English challenged they find a way to provide great service. They are also a great restaurant to use for catering from small events to 150+ people.
