“Established Mexican Restaurant”
Reviewed 19 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Los Cucos has been in The Woodlands the longest of any of the Mexican restaurants and there's a reason why. Good food and service! Although some of the waiters can be English challenged they find a way to provide great service. They are also a great restaurant to use for catering from small events to 150+ people.

“Fantastic Margaritas”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

Great margaritas -- $1.99 for happy hour on Monday nights. We got a big platter (don't remember what it was called). Very tasty. Very noisy until some people cleared out. The location is hard to see from the road -- you better know where you are going.

“Not TexMex - Better!”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

If you are looking for tacos and enchiladas, Los Cucos is not the place for you. They specialize in more upscale food - especially seafood - rather than the traditional TexMex fare. My husband and I LOVE the Gallitos Fish! It's the best thing on the menu and it is consistently excellent. Also, the Fajitas a la Cuscos are to die for! Better than any other Mexican restaurant around. We have been eating at Los Cucos for many years and it is always great food if you know what to order. We have run in to a surly waiter or two over the years but most of the wait staff is friendly.

“visited multiple locations”
Reviewed 4 May 2013

The old one in downtown Katy is good. I've been to the newer one by Katy Mills twice and both times it was horrible. The first time they set up an extra table by the restrooms for us. The second time they tried to pass off doctored-up pork & beans as barbacoa beans. The one in Conroe, off I-45, is pretty good.
