Consistantly good Mexican food with authentic flavor. Strong Margaritas and good lunch specials including a very nice tortilla soup. Nice atmosphere with seating outside on the front patio and courteous staff.

Besides the great food and service, the margaritas are consistently good. They give you a strong one to start instead of having to order two or more. The Cadillac margaritas are especially strong!

Feels like you walked back in time when entering Don Cuco. It's a Burbank/Toluca Lake fixture for a good reason. Good food, full bar and not too expensive. A local favorite.

Always good and fast service, even when crowed. Fantastic traditional and creative meals. Try the Zarapes or Enchaladas- Sonora, definitely get a house margarita on the rocks, maybe 2...

The restaurant had friendly service, great Margaritas and the food was good with big portions. A great place to meet friends and have a few laughs. You will enjoy the tosdada chips and salsa while having a cocktail and talking with your friends. The place is loud but fun

Parking: It wasn't hard since we were staying at The Tangerine Hotel (really a motel) right next door. But it didn't appear to be difficult to park near the restaurant on the local streets. Ambiance: Fun, Kitschy Mexican decor. Chandeliers shaped like cacti, red leather booths, candle lit tables, wrought iron, tile floors..... We went at night and found it... More

Local friend recommended meeting here for dinner. The place was busy and buzzing with energy, and it was also very loud. I was meeting some friends that I had not seen in about 8 years, so that the fact that it was so loud, was less than ideal. (I could barely hear our conversation.) But despite this, service was friendly... More

You will always be greeted in a friendly manner and seated asap. The service is very good and the food also is pretty authentic. All-in-all an enjoyable experience. This is not a restaurant for children...is that's what you are looking for.......go to MacDonald's. This restaurant is more of an adult experience.....it is not a café.
