This is a great mexican restaurant. The fish tacos are my favorite. Free chips and salsa. My drinking companion said that the Margueritas and the selection of beers were good. Very cute sidewalk seating. T

The tacos that I ordered here didn't taste as good as I expected, however they did have a unique flare to the flavor that I can imagine others may like. The service was spectacular, and the staff and employees tried to make my meal as pleasant as possible.

If you do not mind crowded and loud this is a fun place. Great Margaritas and tasty carnitas. Had no reservations so we had to wait about 30 minutes. Next to Tangerine Motel so a good dining option if you are a guest there and do not want to walk far. Nothing fancy. Friendly staff.

Margaritas good, chips & salsa both fresh, cheese enchilada and tamale combination plate fairly tasty (but I probably wouldn't order a tamale there again). Prices seemed a bit high, but the place was convenient, and our server was fun & attentive.

Visited after a taping of The Ellen Show and had a delicious dinner while the traffic died down. The seafood dishes were very good and had surprising combinations of ingredients that I ventured and ordered - glad I did!! The restaurant gets very busy and most of the tables and booths are pretty close together but worth a try!

My family LOVES Don Cuco's. We have been coming here for years. They know us by name and our favorite drinks. The menu is incredible and every meal we have ordered has been fantastic. The restaurant is unassuming on the outside, a small outside eating area but wait till you see how large it is inside! Many booths that can... More

The restaurant is next to the Tangerine Hotel. Passing the restaurant on Friday and Saturday we had noticed just how busy this place was. So decided to try it ourselves and we were not disappointed. The menu is extensive and food well cooked and very tasty. Certainly the best Mexican food we've had on this trip to the States. Service... More

It doesn't look big from the outside, but the inside goes on forever. The menu is incredibly extensive, so I thought they may not be able to do everything well. Wrong! The food is truly excellent. Service was just a bit on the slow side, but that's because the place was packed to the gills with people waiting in line... More

What a wonderful location for a family gathering - what a happy place and an easy location for family and friends to get together for celebrations and a casual place for visiting. The chips an dip were a delightful launching off point but the piece de resistance was truly the shrimp fajitas - i can't wait to come back for... More

Good food and decent prices and service in a nice neighborhood . If your looking for a clean efficient mexican place this is very good! No complaints even during lunch busy very efficient and friendly -- sat outside was a bonus too! Close to Conan Show and Warner Brother!
