Ok in all respects -- that's it. Nothing grand to write about. The chilis were bland, the service Ok, the beer not cold enough. meh.

“Food was ok, bathroom was disgusting....employees very unprofessional.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

The restraunt itself was clean, but not well kept. The garbage and kitchen was in plain view when walking in. The bathroom was filthy! The garbage was over flowing and used papertowels were scattered all over the floor. When waiting for the food we were treated to a story between 2 employees talking about who empregnated who. Yes, really. And they were at least 10 ft away! The food was ok, it might have actually been good had the other factors not come into play.

“Cuco Special - what made it gummy and taste like wax”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

The Cuco Special leaves a lot to be desired. When the dish was hot it was wonderful, but as it started to cool it became gummy and tasted waxy. Is it the cheese? The chef needs to change the cheese in this dish. This dish is a combination of Shrimp, Chicken, Beef, onions, peepers, mushrooms, cheese, and Spanish rice.
Very poor service! We were seated at a table with no napkins & silverware. The waitress took our order and never came back to put silverware & napkins on the table nor did she bring any when the food was served. The food was not even served by her. A man from the kitchen staff served us. And he went off to get silverware 7 napkins after we had to ask for it. My friend asked for a takeout container for her black beans. The waitress returned with a styrofoam box instead of a plastic container with a lid. No way would the beans have made it home in that box - runny mess in the car would have been their faith!. The waitress was not friendly and not attentive - came back only once to our table - never offered a water refill.

“CUCO SPECIAL”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

You must try the CuCo special at Poblanos. It is an amazing mexican dish that has shrimp, chicken and steak on a bed of mexican rice with cheese and all kinds of other goodness. The Poblanos In Adams Farm (High Point Rd) has 40% off of all food items on Monday nights after 4pm. You cant beat that.
