Had a super lunch here with colleagues and a sneaky lunchtime margarita. Food was good and the service excellent. This definitely isn't a chain restaurant and you get an authentic Mexican menu (though definitely with a US influence, especially on the portion size).

A friend who lived in Burbank recommended Don Cuco for Mexican food. It is a lively, borderline too noisy, restaurant with great food and fast service and has been open since 1969. I try to shy away from the combo platters so I tried the...More

I go here often with work friends. The menu has a great selection and the food quality is very high. It also has adequate staffing. Highly recommend this if you need Mexican fix.

This restaurant closed almost 2 years ago, but has since changed owners and is back in business under the name CHATO'S. The new owners were previous staff members who knew the clientele and menu well. Chato's should get 5 stars.

My wife and I eat here about three times per month. It's the best Mexican food in Burbank! Service is excellent. It has an adjoining bar, and many old-style booths. A very popular place, but worth the wait.
