Food was good. We tried the enchiladas, the chicken fajita tostada (which is really just a chicken taco salad) and tortilla soup. Salas and chips were good too. The queso was extra cheesy. Being from Texas we were expecting alot and the food was comparable. Service was outstanding. Parking could be better. Restaurant is a little dark and crowded.

Very good food and authentic Mexican atmosphere. We ate on the patio, weather was beautiful, they were very accomadating with us due to the fact the hotel room was not ready and they made room for us on the patio with our bags. The inside of the resturant was much to dark, it was hard to see the menu. The service was good, prices were reasonable.

This is one of my friends favorite places, so thought I would check it out with her. Loved the chips and spicy salsa with sour cream...a great start. Waiters & bus boys very attentive, great service. The entrees were large-sized and pretty good, but nothing special. I got the Chili Verde and the pork was succulent, but the sauce was very bland. Flour tortillas were undercooked and quite honestly tasted like play-doh. Ambience was fun and nice and the prices were good, too. Too bad the food didn't totally match up.

Nice genuine feel to the restaurant and the veggie options for the wife and I were pretty typical.. Fajitas, burritos etc. Pretty good tasting food and the usual large American portions. We sat outside on the small terrace area on our 1st day then went back a few days later to eat inside. Pretty good overall.

Our North Texas family recently visited the area. Mom and Dad were going to have a parents night out, but we decided to look for a family place as opposed to takeout pizza for the kids. A little googling turned up Don Cuco.

The restaurant is long and narrow and reminiscent of a million other Mexican restaurants. On Sunday night at about 7pm, it wasn't full and we were immediately seated near the back. Our waiter immediately showed up to take drink orders with chips and salsa close behind. The chips were fine - light and nongreasy. while the mild hot sauce reminded us that we were in California. The margarita was fine - not overly sweet.

As we perused the menu, the prices for combo plates seemed a little high, until we realized that they came not only with rice and beans, but salad as well. A flip through the menu reaveled a full page of a la carte items, ranging from about $3 - 7 each. Sold! We all ordered off the a la carte page. My carnitas and al carbon tacos were tasty - it is so easy to oversalt these things - and more than enough for my dinner. Spouse and kids filled up as well and had no complaints about food. Dinner for 4 with 3 drinks came to about $48.

Don Cuco felt like an old glove to us - a little worn, but comfortable and familiar. This is a good choice for old Mexican standards and the a la carte options work wonderfully for a family. Go elsewhere if you're looking for nouvelle or fusion Mex.
