The 2 pts is for the queso only which to me had too much cilantro. My family that ordered fajitas got a hot skillet of fajitas and all of the meat, veggies, and rice were stuck to the bottom of the platter. The rice was beyond black and the waiter could have cared less. He said, "well, it's a hot... More

Every time we are in South Texas we find a Los Cucos to eat at. Today we were visiting Texas A&M and stopped in for a late lunch. The food was good, not the best we have ever had at this chain but still very enjoyable. The green avocado salsa is the best and the main reason we go. The... More

We've been to several Los Cucos, and this is as good as the others-- *super* fresh food, excellent service (we stayed for a couple of hours, and still a smile with the 5th cup of coffee!), and really clean. Only wish the chile had been spicier!

We were in town for a tournament and called a week ahead to make reservations for a large group. When we arrived, the service was lacking. I asked for a drink, which I never received. Our orders were taken quickly but it took about 2 hours for the food to come out. Additionally, my son never received his food during... More

We enjoyed a delicious meal here. The service was fantastic. Samantha was our waiter. And Guiellmo was very funny and helpful. I tried the fried avacado. Different however delicious. The chips and sausa was good too. I was not disappointed.

So far in my first experience was awesome and will return again and again! The music with a latin flare, the service and the meal was excellent!

I thought that being in Texas, the Mexican food would be top-notch. In this case, I was terribly mistaken. The margaritas tasted more like water and tequila than a margarita. I ordered the tacos, and they were not really good. The marinade for the steak was overwhelming. The rice was gummy, and the refried beans tasted like they'd been sitting... More

We were in town for a track day at Texas World Speedway. We asked where the best Tex-Mex in town is & was told Los Cucos was the place. We were not disappointed. We had the Pollo Poblano & the Pollo Ixtapa. Both were great dishes, plenty of food, chicken was cooked perfect & the sauces were very complimentary. Margaritas... More

Food is average. Unbelievably slow. Not busy at all. No real reason I could see. Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

We went as a group (10 of us) on Friday night. Live Mariachi band set the tone for a great evening (Be sure and tip the guys!) Food was awesome, service as well. Hand made tortillas, both flour and corn, were to die for. I can't wait to visit College Station again, just to go here.
