Don Cuco’s has been a long time family favorite. This is where we go every time the family is in town and we are looking for a place to eat. The food has always consistent and the servers are awesome, and I love the candle light feeling of the restaurant. Secretly I think the real reason we come here is... More

We went without a reservation (make a reservation if you know in advance) and did not have to wait very long. Although they were very crowded the service was fantastic. Never had to wait for water, chips, or salsa. The food is plentiful and tasty. I wouldn't say it's the best Mexican food I've ever eaten, but it was what... More

We have been to many of the Don Cuco locations, but not yet this one so were excited to give Simi Valley a try. The menu was very extensive and it was hard to choose. Everything tasted wonderful from the chips and salsa to the entrees. The service was very friendly, timely and attentive. We would definitely return to this... More

Whether you're looking for something simple like nachos, or the full enchilada (!) Don Cuco will deliver. And you'll be impressed! Tons of choices, family friendly, not too expensive... what else needs to be said? Well, it can get busy weekend eves, but that's because folks know where to go. Try it for yourself - and I'm sure you'll agree!... More

Everything we have ordered over the years has been great. The prompt service is an added bonus. Wednesday nights can be a little bit busier than other nights. Love this place!

As a previous resident in that area, we used to patronize this restaurant about three times a month. When they were new in town, they were really all about customer service and appreciation. They even had Mexican Bands playing music on weekends. Food was really good also. Happened to be in town recently and had an issue with seating availability,... More

Came for a business meeting with some clients. Dimly lit, good ambient, beautifully decorated inside. However the long wait was annoying as we were really hungry. Food was alright. The staff were very attentive.

Everything here is good, the tacos, taquitos (my favorite), burritos, flautas. The Albondigas soup will keep you coming back. The margaritas are amazing and a ton to choose from! a quick meal that will fill you up.

Don't know how this place is rated so high. Was not good!! Service was marginal at best. Food was sub par. Bar and dining area did not look clean. Won't be going back!
