The service is really good and the food is reasonably priced. Doesn't look like they're doing much business which always concerns me.

We have been going to Don Cuco's for years... At least two times a month you will find us there. It's not hard to get into if you go around 5:30 ish, and they do take reservations. The manager is always around to greet people and make sure things are going well. The bar is usually packed, but not uncomfortable. Margaritas are delicious, consistenly good. We've had many different dishes there, and I can't say anything expect positive things about the food. Even the chips and salsa are fresh and good! There are plenty of big booths to be comfortable in as well as long table setups for a big crowd. Service is fast and you are not rushed to leave.

Don Cuco's is that neighborhood restaurant that will stand for a long time, as it already has. It's definitely a go to place for great Mexican food and drinks!

The food and service were fantasitic, my margarita was nothing special for the ten bucks they charged me. Might have been the bartender, but the food was great. It might have been the drink prices that threw me, but we have had some excellent food and drinks in the So Cal area for less money. Overal a good place to eat in the Santa Clarita area as we were staying up the street at the Hampton.

I can always tell how good a Mexican restaurant is going to be by the chips and salsa. Fortunately the Chips and Salsa at Don Cuco's was really good. The chips were hot and freshly made, the salsa was flavorful without being too spicy and they gave 2 bowls so you didn't have to reach far to get some. The staff is friendly and the service good. All the food was served hot and fresh and we all cleaned our plates. One suggestion is to start with the Albondigas soup. The soup was flavorful, full of vegetables and a nice large meatball.
