If you love great, traditional style Mexican food, this place is great! Large menu, multiple choices like three varieties of beans (black, refried, & whole pintos). I have been eating here for quite a few years and the food and the service has always been consistant. Yes, they get crowded at dinner time, especially on the weekends so plan on a wait if you don't have reservations. Parking can be brutal during busy hours since there is only street parking available and all the other restaurants and shops fight for the same parking on the street. I saw where another reviewer complained about the wait and went across the street to El Torito and was seated immediately. What does that tell you?They're not as busy because their food is not as good as Don Cuco's. I can't think of a ""GOOD"" restaurant I've gone to for dinner that someone wasn't waiting to get seated. Maybe for people who hate waits, they should eat at Denny's, I'm sure they must have some kind of offering that resembles Mexican food like a burrito. Someone else mentioned rude service and getting violently ill from the food. I've never noticed any examples of bad service, who knows, maybe the customer was being unreasonable and the staff reacted accordingly and I'm sure you could get ill from eating out but that's always a possibility no matter where you choose to eat. I know that neither myself or anyone in my family has ever gotten ill from eating there. So, all things considered, Don Cuco's provides, great Mexican food, great service, great drinks and great atmosphere all for a reasonable price.
Pros: Great food, great service, large menu, good value, hand-made torillas
Cons: Parking can be terrible during peak meal times, expect waits during busy periods
