Food is good. Noisy atmosphere due to live music at times. Like the guacamole that you can have made freah right at your table.

Have been frequenting Los Cucos since early 90s. Simply the best Margaritas & Mexican food in Houston, at a reasonable price. Always measure a Mexican restaurant by its chips and red/green salsa, well LC is the best! Love the Pollo Poblano, but also the fried avocado w/shrimp, and anything with shrimp or fish, fresh & delicious. The fajitas are fabulous!... More

We went as a family of 6 and everyone agreed the food was really good and fresh. Some of us had the stuffed avocado and loved it. We will be going back.

We were visiting our family in Katy and wanted a restaurant near our hotel. Also did not want a long wait on a Friday night. No wait and vibrant ambiance -and lots of native Mexicans were eating there. Our family of 7 with 3 children and 4 adults had a fun time. Food was all fresh and tasty and good... More

The food is very good and reasonably priced. The left hand side is quite noisy so we prefer to sit in the right hand side. Has great margaritas too!!

Quick service, had drinks very fast and they didn't wait too long to take the order. We came in at lunch and it was pretty busy. The place is pretty noisy which makes it hard to have a conversation but other than that it was a good experience.Pollo del Rio is very good.

There are things I like about different Mexican food restaurants, but a staple is fresh salsa. I really like there's because it is usually hot and fresh. It's just the right amount of spicy hot and a really good consistency.

I have been to 4 different locations over the last three years. I have had bad experiences at all 4 locations. Bad service, bad food, a/c was out in one location.

I've been to a couple Los Cucos locations. I'm not sure why it took so long to try the Old Town Katy location. It was a great experience. Their chips and chili con queso were excellent. The green salsa was fantastic, too. As a main course, we had the Parrillada. It was very good. It came with beef and chicken... More
