Great food and atmosphere. Usually a wait, but worth it. Fish tacos, Chili con Queso, Fajitas, just a few of our favorites.

The restaurant was old style California and service was excellent. The food was a little more than good. The price was way to much for what we ordered. One item combo & two item combo and one can of beer ($5.50) for one guest and one water (tap) for other guest. $46.00. Not worth the money. Sorry, really wanted to... More

Traditional Mexican fare done right. I had flautas- divine. I am only in town for a few days and I may even go back to try something else. The service also was fast and friendly, and the kitchy decor is perfect.

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...
