We eat here frequently because it is very convenient, we can always get a table quickly, the food is delicious and served hot, and the wait staff is consistently friendly and attentive. Through the years the menu has grown to a wider selection while the prices have remained affordable. We have also ordered large take out meals for parties and... More

First of all, the menu is HUGE! Funny how I almost always order the same thing but luckily, my husband is a little more adventurous (and let's me sample his)! The service here is always phenomenal and the fried stuffed avocado is out of this world. Be sure to save room for the sopapillas, as they are they best I've... More

The service was satisfactory but the food was not so good. Even in most cheap Mexican or other Latin American places the food is much tastier.

In the middle of Panther Creek shopping center, this version of Los Cucos remains a top local Mexican restaurant with Monday/Tuesday special prices for margaritas. Fish, shrimp, and seafood are particularly good.

Prices are a little high for Mexican food but the plates are full. There is generally take-home for later. Food is well prepared and they will substitute foods and are very customer oriented.Friendly, courteous waiters.

We ordered a big variety but everything was fantastic. Can't wait to go back. The enchiladas were very good fajitas were the best. Even chips and cheese sauce.

I love the food but the service is terrible. The waiters are extremely rude. I rather don't go there. The nickel and dime over tortillas.

My family and I have been eating here since they opened. We have always enjoyed eating here. Beef Fajitas are very good and nicely marinated. The stuffed avocado is also a good choice. The service is good and attentive.

I was in Friday at lunch and had great food -- create a combo chicken fajita taco and enchilada. Today, Monday the 4th of July, the black beans and white rice were not cooked. And, there were waaaaaayy too many onions on everything. I ordered the healthy chicken and veggie fajitas, and it was terrible. No seasoning. No salt. I... More
