This is a real Mexican restaurant not Tex-Mex. We like to practice our Spanish even though most of the waitress speak English. We have breakfast here at least once a month and have eaten at the Richardson and Carrollton location as well. The fresh hand...More

There are many Tex-Mex restaurants in Texas. This one is very good. The meals are very delicious, and the portions are big. It is a good place to eat.

The food was decent. The menu was a little different from a traditional Tex Mex place which was nice, but nothing really stood out to me as something I MUST HAVE again. The service was average. It probably didn't help that there was a family...More

I had a nice lunch of Guiso de Res, full of flavor and filling. The handmade tortillas were a nice touch. Lunch including tip was $10.50.

I became a fan of Cuquitas in 1999 when I first moved to Dallas. They were located on Henderson with what I considered the next best thing to mama's cooking. Unfortunately after losing their lease they moved to a really bad location on Lake June...More

I enjoyed lunch at the Garland location. The restaurant was very clean, the staff was friendly, the service was great and the food was really tasty! It seems more authentic Mexican to me than Tex-Mex......which I found refreshing. I would definitely recommend and will be...More

We'd never heard of Cuquita's but found it while looking for a place to lunch. Research revealed this is one of three locations in the Dallas area. The chain is highly rated by Texas Monthly magazine. We found the food and service excellent.
