I love the food but the service is terrible. The waiters are extremely rude. I rather don't go there. The nickel and dime over tortillas.

My family and I have been eating here since they opened. We have always enjoyed eating here. Beef Fajitas are very good and nicely marinated. The stuffed avocado is also a good choice. The service is good and attentive.

I was in Friday at lunch and had great food -- create a combo chicken fajita taco and enchilada. Today, Monday the 4th of July, the black beans and white rice were not cooked. And, there were waaaaaayy too many onions on everything. I ordered the healthy chicken and veggie fajitas, and it was terrible. No seasoning. No salt. I... More

Party of six new and old friends. Los Cucos doesn't disappoint. Everyone had something different but all were equally happy. My criterion for a good Mexican restaurant is the fish taco. This two taco serving was filled with fresh cabbage, some mild sauce and great grilled pescado blanco. Fancy margaritas, middling beer menu but service is attentive and efficient. Dinner... More

We go often because the service is fast, the food is, without fail, always hot and delicious. We have been coming for years and will continue to do so. We have tried other Mexican food places, but always come back here.

Nice restaurant with ample parking with some really good (and different) Mexican food. Service was fast and attentive. Try the seafood-stuffed avocados. These aren't available in any of the Mexican restaurants where I'm from and they're delicious.

Takeout for a party of four adults. We ordered fajitas (chicken and beef) fish taco, and a deep-fried avocado. Everything was delicious and both my wife and I decided that it was the best Mexican food we had ever eaten. (We were visiting from Canada where good Mexican food is not easy to find.) Each dish had layers of flavour... More

Mediocre Mexican food in a convenient location. Service slow, tables not bussed, trash all over, better places to have Mexican food anywhere. Went here a few times in 2005, not returned until now, remember why we never go there.

It is a bit of a drive to go here but well worth dealing with the traffic and the time involved. Food is always very fresh and good. The guacamole that they prepare table side is perfect. Try to go at least twice a month. The review asks if they serve Southwestern food. I really don't know the difference between... More
