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.

Great margaritas -- $1.99 for happy hour on Monday nights. We got a big platter (don't remember what it was called). Very tasty. Very noisy until some people cleared out. The location is hard to see from the road -- you better know where you are going.

Visited Los Cucos off Panther & Gosling - always great service and rarely have to wait. Best mango margaritas around and consistenly excellent quality food. Very good enchiladas and chicken tortilla soup.

If you are looking for tacos and enchiladas, Los Cucos is not the place for you. They specialize in more upscale food - especially seafood - rather than the traditional TexMex fare. My husband and I LOVE the Gallitos Fish! It's the best thing on the menu and it is consistently excellent. Also, the Fajitas a la Cuscos are to... More

The old one in downtown Katy is good. I've been to the newer one by Katy Mills twice and both times it was horrible. The first time they set up an extra table by the restrooms for us. The second time they tried to pass off doctored-up pork & beans as barbacoa beans. The one in Conroe, off I-45, is... More

We usually eat here for a large lunch then have a sandwich for dinner. Located in Panter Creek village center, with plenty of parking. The atmosphere is average and the food is typical Tex Mex. We enjoy the restaurant and have eaten here over 5 times and will continue to go back.

Get ready to read awhile, what a diverse Menu. We were there with a group and service was excellent waitstaff on the spot. Food was very good and served hot. Beef fajitas were a big hit and enchiladas. Good kids menu as well. Great, you will enjoy!

This place is kind of hidden in a strip center off Panther Creek. We were seated promptly upon arriving for lunch. The restaurant was pretty crowded which is a good sign. Our drink orders were taken and we were brought chips and two kinds of salsa. One was a warm red salsa and a green salsa also. I am a... More
