Once in awhile, we get a craving for Mexican food that cannot be met locally, so we drive the 57 miles to the closest Los Cucos.

The food at this Los Cucos is reliably delicious. We go out of our way to stop here for their green sauce. The guacamole, fried avacado, and the tacos are all fantastic. Looking forward to stopping here again.

The restaurant if very clean, open, and Mexican style without being too much so. The wife and I had very delicious food. She raved about the chicken soup and tostada. My enchiladas were great.

We had the rehearsal dinner for my daughter's wedding here. The food was great, the service excellent. The adult beverages were a little pricy. Overall, an 8/10 for sure.

If you want to get sick, hurry on in. If you want to have the roasted tomatoes in your salsa roasted with the stickers on them, hurry in.

Went here for a business supper and the atmosphere was conducive for discussion, the staff was attentive, and the food was excellent. Had the stuffed avocado plate and it was tremendous. I judge a Mexican food restaurant a lot by their chips and salsa and these folks have a great offering of such.
