Don Cuco's is by far the best Mexican food restaurant in SCV/Valencia!! Any time my family goes out for Mexican food, we go to Don's, and we go a lot, because we LOVE good Mexican food!! It's definitely best known for the fried, cheesy, beefy dishes... I've gotten a few things I definitely do not recommend. Here's a list of the best and worst items on the menu:

BEST (5/5 stars):
Fresh Chips & Salsa
Tortilla Soup
Cheese Enchiladas
Cheese Quesadillas
Flautas Rojas
Fried Beef Burrito
Fajitas
Tostada Salads
Chili Rellenos
Tamales
Taquitos
Enchilada Sonora
Enchilada en Mole
Mexican Jambalaya
Margaritas

WORST (3/5 stars & below):
Shrimp dishes (shrimp is often overcooked)
Fish Tacos (they were a bit fishy when I tried them, which usually means the fish isn't very fresh)
Santa Fe Rolls (really boring)
Botana Platter (even the things that are usually delicious are served soggy when you order this platter [like the quesadillas and flautas]; I just think it's too much food for the cooks to handle getting out all at once...)
Buffalo Wings (terrible on the platter: soggy, not crispy)
Chicken Fingers (terrible on the platter: soggy, not crispy)
Nachos (they give you waaaaay too many toppings and the result is soggy chips and grease that collects like syrup at the bottom of the plate, yuck!)

Even though there are quite a few items I definitely do not recommend, the items I do recommend are fantastic!!! Just stick with the fried, cheesy, beefy items and you won't regret it!! I LOVE this place (just make sure you stick with certain items)!!

We've been coming here for about 6 months and every time, the service is great and the food delicious. the drinks are nice and strong as well. This one is not affiliated w/the ones in Glendale and Burbank. The food AND service are much better. Come and enjoy the wonderfulness that is Don Cucos in Newhall!!!

I am Mexican and Don cuco restaurant is a good imitation of a good Mexican food. I usually go there when I am craving for tostadas, mmmmm. Their prices are ok.

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant in the Santa Clarita valley. I love the tacos. The margaritas are fabulous. There is always a wait, but it's worth it.

Don Cucos is a very good mexican restaurant with good service. My husband took me there for my birthday because I loved the Chineese Chicken Salad but it wasn't the same as before- they must've changed the recipie. I guess that's what I get for ordering a Chineese Chicken Salad at a Mexican Restaurant!

Don Cucos provides a great selection of mexican food and large portions. You receive free chips and salsa and large glasses of ice tea. The service is excellent and the employees are very friendly and accomodating. For the amount of food you received I think the pricing is excellent. We went during the day (130pm) so there was not wait and we beat the lunch crowd.
Parking is plentyful since it is located in a shopping center off of Lynon's in the same location as Von's.

PROS: Great Mexican Food for the Price
CONS:
