Im a fan of mexican food, but not high prices. They recently opened in Burbank and I feel its a good addition to the restaurants in downtown burbank. The decor could almost feel like you are in mexico, but not quite. If anything their portions are huge so at least you can share or make a second meal from it.

Best mexican food in Burbank. From the Cadillac Margaritas to the salsas everything is incredible. The tacos are so good and the salsa is amazing. and they make home made tortillas!

Don Cuco's is a local treasure for Toluca Lake residents. They've got a wide selection of Mexican dishes, and just about everything's great, so take a chance and try that thing that caught your eye on the menu!

Pros: Fantastic food, broad menu, decent prices

Cons: Bad parking. Demand is sometimes higher than their capacity

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

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

Don Cuco yummmm what more can I say. The food is wonderful, the service is great, and the fried ice cream is even better. We go here often and we are regulars even doing take out from time to time. They are always packed but well worth any wait you may have you will not regret it!

If your idea of a great time out is being treated rudely with little regard as a customer. If you like waiting too long to be treated poorly, then by all means go to Don Cuco.\r
How was the food? I dont know, I waited so long to eat it

I eat there a lot. Tostada's are great, fried burritto is excellent. Milanesa is one to get as well. The Cadillac's pack a whollop and taste great! It is a small place and you need to call at least 2 hours in advance for reservations, so

I love Don Cuco's. It so great. Margaritas are good, then servers are sweet, and the food is yummy. The only problem is that it gets PACKED! Not quite sure if they take reservations but it's worth calling and asking. The ambiance is really great (they've got the whole Spanish patio look going on inside), parking can be a pain but it's all worth it!

Now I know why that one guy I dated loved this place!!!

Living in Southern California with Mexico our neighbor to the south, we obviously have a large hispanic population here. These may also be some of the reasons why there are many, many restaurants catering to the lovers of Mexican cuisine.

Pros: food and service especially margs and white rice

Cons: needs to be bigger; very narrow like a hallway but extends all the way back

Don Cuco's has the absolute best tortilla soup I've ever had. It's worth it just to go, have the free chips and salsa (and they are very quick to bring you more) and a bowl of this soup. Highly reccomended!

Watered down drinks and a melted mix of refried beans and cheese with the smallest sliver of avocado. Do yourself a favor and eat across the street.

Don Cuco's is awesome. For the reviewers who disagree, you'll just have to enjoy a life of mediocrity across the street at that chain restaurant, El Torito...enjoy your picture menu. For those with elevated tastes, you're in for a treat.

The margaritas are pretty good. Food is amazing. Compared to other sit down Mexican places in the area, Don Cucos beats them all. Their prices are a little steep, but are everything is so tasty. Tortilla soup is the best weve ever had.

I do not get the draw this place has. The food is not very good at all. The drinks are fine, but nothing special. Certainly not worth the long wait. I keep giving this place chance after chance but I am done with it. Don't bother.

In contrast to Casa Vega, which is more about the Margaritas, Don Cuco's is all about the food. Huge selections of seafood, chicken and beef dishes mean you'll never have to try the same thing twice. But chances are you'll want to, since
