“Good TexMex, the green sauce rocks!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

Their food isn't spectacular, but it's good and reasonably priced. If I want fajitas, I don't get them here when there is better quality meat at other Mexican restaurants. But for standard fare - enchiladas, tacos, tamales, Los Cucos is just fine. The chips are fine and the green sauce is amazing. The made-to-order guacamole is really good, so if you go, bring some cash to tip the guac cart lady!

“Very good TexMex and Attentive Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

The food is very good, we had Queso, Guacamole, Steak and Chicken Fajitas, Shrimp Tacos and Seafood Enchiladas. It was all good. Good selection of cold beer. You get two types of salsa, green and red, both good. The service is attentive and friendly. The restaurant was busy with many local folks. Don't be put off by the location in a strip center on the south side of Hwy 90 (Highway Blvd) and the outside appearance of the strip center. The decor inside is simple, but the food is very good.

Original location downtown katy. Fried avacado wonderful. Crowded sometimes. Decor shows age but adds to small town appeal

This place is by far the best Mexican restaurant in the world. The salsa is amazing and the food is top notch.

“A Katy favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

If you go to the Hwy 90 Katy location, you must have the Fish Cancun. Absolutely delicious. Nice wait staff, very casual environment. $1 margaritas on MOnday!
