Tis restaurant is large and has patio seating. Also has a full bar. The menu offers many Mexican dishes to choose from. The servers were very good, and they kept your salsa & chips on the table replenished. Great family restaurant.

If you're watching your nutrition and your wallet, I recommend the Santa Fe Rolls for a light lunch. Comes with 4 pieces of chicken/spinach/etc rolled in a flour tortilla and a dunking bowl of good red sauce. Excellent paired with a margarita mixed by Rudy. I had to take one of the rolls home as 3 pieces were enough.

Their food is pretty typical, large restaurant, Mexican food. They have a large room in the back, that is GREAT for parties/large groups.

I eat here because the atmosphere is nice, and I like the servers. Do not expect truly Mexican food since it is more American-Mexican and has an average menu as do most chain-style restaurants.

I really tried some authentic dishes here, tamales, and enchiladas, both were great as I expected. Margarita wasn't bad either!

Don Cuco has great food, friendly service and cozy atmosphere. The bar is quaint and comfortable. The staff goes all out if you are celebrating a birthday. Authentic sombreros for the birthday boy or girl along with a complimentary dessert and singing. Nice place for a relaxing meal or just an appetizer and drinks with a friend.

I have been taking family here for birthdays for years . The food is good,the service good and prices are typical for a Mexican restaurant. The best part is the birthday person is humiliated by wearing a huuuge sombrero as the staff sings happy birthday in Spanish then in English. Fun photo opportunity!

The food here is good and has ample servings. The atmosphere is very loud, but tolerable. The chips and salsa are very good and the keep them coming. Consider the a la carte menu id you want less to eat.

Yes it's a chain, but it's really good! We weren't aware until the end of the meal that they make homemade tortillas. The flour tortillas are wonderful but the cilantro/jalapeño tortillas are awesome! It looks like you have to ask for those but it's definitely worth a request. The guacamole is definitely handmade and the margaritas did not come out... More

We had a surprise 90th birthday party here and the staff was very accommodating. Loved the atmosphere. I had the brunch and I would say 8 out of 10....other than the ceviche....which was 10 out of 10, so darn good! Even better, champagne comes with the brunch. What really made this was the service. The manager was right there for... More
