The waiter was very attentive to our selections. Checked on us several times and even corrected both of our Bloody Mary's. The food was mediocre this time but we've had better before. When my husband visited the men's room before leaving the restaurant, he was appalled at the dirtiness of it and said had he gone in when we first... More

Stopped in for lunch with the family. We usually get the Seafood El Vapor. If you ever go.....please order. Steamed fish dish is delish! This particular day I had the margaritas and the beef fajita quesadilla and my hubby had the beef enchilada dinner with quest sauce.Both dishes are great too. The atmosphere is great and they have great servers.... More

After two disappointing visits to Los CUCOS at Fall Creek I can say that the fajitas were definitely better, children's meals were also good and they get free dessert on Wednesdays. The Chalupas Mexicanas were delicious according to my daughter. The Steak Tampiquena was supposed to be ribeye but was more like a New York strip and not very tasty,... More

This place has a great variety of food... the hardest part is to decide what to have. Great flavors! Good service, except that I requested a super spicy salsa and the waiter never brought it. Portions are... huge! I had tacos (carnitas and beef fajitas), simply delicious! I'd just ask for less onions on them. My coworkers also enjoyed their... More

My dinner of mixed fajitas, that I shared with my daughter, was very good. However, I only rated the meal overall three stars since others in our party said their meat was tough and fatty. We ordered the chili con queso and recommend that you order this excellent appetizer too. Anyways, we were celebrating our grandsons second birthday, and the... More

My first experience with Los Cuscos was a Sunday brunch and I loved it, however, the place is getting a little run down and the service can be sketchy. I think the food has become pretty much middle of the road Tex Mex. The pricing is a little bit too high for the quality of the Mexican dishes.

They charge for a 10oz drink in a 9oz plastic cup half full!! Price $5.99!! On top of that charge $17 tip for 4 people and had to wait separately... More

Good place to eat.. Friendly staff. Love the enchiladas verde. The drinks are good too. Nice Atmosphere, also nice for special occasions, or hanging out with friends or family.
