Decent food . Nothing spectacular. I like how they add veggies in their rice. Their tortilla soup is more like a vegetable soup, but still good. My order was wrong so I can't give a fair review on my chilli relleno. (It was overflowing with mushrooms and I don't like mushrooms). The pepper was a nice size. I still got... More

We found this place on trip advisor and decided to try it out! The outside doesn't look like much but the inside was really nice! They were very acomidating to our child! The food and service was great and we will be going back for sure!

This place is good. Dining alone sitting at the bar, good service. The place is full on Tuesday night. The Charo beans are fantastic. Ordered 3 tacos. Beef is smoky, shrimp is fresh, fish is not talipia, thank goodness. Don't eat talipia. Taco shells thick and not soaked with grease. Very large menu Monday Tuesday margaritas special. I'll be back.

The service at Los Cucos is incredibly quick and friendly. I've been there for lunch and dinner multiple times. The restaurant is usually crowded (especially from 12-1 pm and 6-8 pm) but the food and drinks are delivered quickly. The menu is the most extensive I've seen in any Mexican restaurant, which is good in that my wife and I... More

This restaurant has a dining area that hangs over the bank of the Colorado River and I'm told it is gorgeous. I'm not sure because it was dark but the customer in the next booth told me it was and that there were dolphins playing in the clear water. All I could see was pitch black darkness but I will...

We love the food and the service. Have had many birthday parties, family outings, as well as group dinners. Servers, waitstaff, and hostesses are very helpful. We enjoy the Quesadillas, El Miki, La Bonita, and all of the Fajitas! Also like the Tortilla Soup, Tacos, and Taco Salad. It's all good! We bring friends and family to Los Cucos when... More

Ate here with business colleagues. Food was great and in a town that size you really need some choices. Found out about it talking to some locals but looked it up on trip advisor. Reviews were spot on. If in town looking for something you need to give it a try.

Great food, service was prompt and polite. Kind of hard to find, the room in the back of the restaurant has a good view of Colorado river.

Food was OK, but slow service (over 30 minutes and mid-afternoon, not crowded) and food was not hot when served. The menu does have many options but the chips tasted old and the place was not particularly clean (chipped bowl)...if you are starving, it's fine, but would drive on if not!
