We spent New Years night at this restaurant after a long day of traveling to see the bowl game the next day. Food was very good, service was top notch and great margaritas. Also the prices were a little high however this was a good place to eat.

This place came up recommended on trip advisor and by our hotel bartender so we thought we would give it a try. Our food was horrible (I had fish tacos and my friend fajitas) and my margarita was barely drinkable. It tasted like the crappy mix you get premade at the grocery store. Definitely skip this place.

I don't know about you, but I judge the quality (authenticity) of a Mexican restaurant almost immediately by the quality of their salsa. That said Don Cuco's salsa is awful, as is most everything after that. We even tried to put salt in the salsa (imagine needing to put salt in salsa?!?!) just to try and make it edible. Didn't...

I don't each much Mexican food as my stomach does not agree with the spices and hot sauces. Don Cuco makes the best tostadas. my stomach has no problem eating this. My kids like all their food.

We have eaten here several times as my son lives in North Hollywood and this is one of his favorite places to eat. It's one of the best Mexican restaurant I've eaten at. However you will pay the price for this good food. Throw some margaritas in there and you're really running the bill up. Being from out of state... More

I love me some good mexican food. This place was definitely solid. We caught tail end of happy hour which seems pretty solid - cheap house margaritas and you get finger foods with it like nachos and quesadillas. Food was tasty and good portions, though not necessarily cheap, so just okay for value. I would definitely come back to give... More

This restaurant was next door to our hotel. We were tired and hungry after the flight from Louisville so we walked over to Don Cuco. We were very surprised at what we found. The staff were friendly, the atmosphere was wonderful and the food was delicious!! We went back twice because we wanted to try more of their selection. I... More

This is the go to spot for nearby businesses that crave Mexican food. You will find many coworkers and business folks in the restaurant. The food is average and since it caters towards business people, the price is much higher than traditional Mexican spots.

You gotta sorta ask yourself, should I really eat here, when you ask your server about a plate on the menu and the response you get is "Do I look like the cook". I do have to say the food was good, I had the cochinita pibil which was almost traditionally cooked but still good and my partner had the... More
