Basic Mexican food, good but nothing special. Tastes like any Mexican food around. Salsa and chips were a stand out. Service was fine.

These days it is really something if you can get both great food and great service in one restaurant. This restaurant delivered both. I was completely surprised how on top of everything the waiters were. I think we had five different waiters all night checking on us. I also liked when they moved all our drinks, food, utensils etc to... More

It's a bit old school but their beef crunchy tacos are excellent. Their beer is very cold, the salsa is spicy and a bit smokey and the chips are fresh and hot. Can't ask for more than that.

We wanted a good family restaurant for Christmas Eve dinner.We were thrilled. Not only is the decor right out of a Hollywood film, the service and food was first rate.

Don Cuco’s has been a long time family favorite. This is where we go every time the family is in town and we are looking for a place to eat. The food has always consistent and the servers are awesome, and I love the candle light feeling of the restaurant. Secretly I think the real reason we come here is... More

We went without a reservation (make a reservation if you know in advance) and did not have to wait very long. Although they were very crowded the service was fantastic. Never had to wait for water, chips, or salsa. The food is plentiful and tasty. I wouldn't say it's the best Mexican food I've ever eaten, but it was what... More

We have been to many of the Don Cuco locations, but not yet this one so were excited to give Simi Valley a try. The menu was very extensive and it was hard to choose. Everything tasted wonderful from the chips and salsa to the entrees. The service was very friendly, timely and attentive. We would definitely return to this... More

Whether you're looking for something simple like nachos, or the full enchilada (!) Don Cuco will deliver. And you'll be impressed! Tons of choices, family friendly, not too expensive... what else needs to be said? Well, it can get busy weekend eves, but that's because folks know where to go. Try it for yourself - and I'm sure you'll agree!... More

Everything we have ordered over the years has been great. The prompt service is an added bonus. Wednesday nights can be a little bit busier than other nights. Love this place!
