The restaurant had friendly service, great Margaritas and the food was good with big portions. A great place to meet friends and have a few laughs. You will enjoy the tosdada chips and salsa while having a cocktail and talking with your friends. The place is loud but fun

Parking: It wasn't hard since we were staying at The Tangerine Hotel (really a motel) right next door. But it didn't appear to be difficult to park near the restaurant on the local streets. Ambiance: Fun, Kitschy Mexican decor. Chandeliers shaped like cacti, red leather booths, candle lit tables, wrought iron, tile floors..... We went at night and found it... More

Local friend recommended meeting here for dinner. The place was busy and buzzing with energy, and it was also very loud. I was meeting some friends that I had not seen in about 8 years, so that the fact that it was so loud, was less than ideal. (I could barely hear our conversation.) But despite this, service was friendly... More

You will always be greeted in a friendly manner and seated asap. The service is very good and the food also is pretty authentic. All-in-all an enjoyable experience. This is not a restaurant for children...is that's what you are looking for.......go to MacDonald's. This restaurant is more of an adult experience.....it is not a café.

I have eaten a lot of Mexican food in my life time, but was honestly not impressed by the food at this restaurant. It is your standard Mexican fare with very little presentation. Many of the food options come with iceberg lettuce...which is like a filler in my eyes and not a decent green leaf...try the margaritas and pina coladas!... More

We ended up at Don Cuco in Burbank for lunch MOSTLY because it was convenient to the hotel we were staying at but partly because the reviews suggested that it wouldn't be terrible. You know what? It totally wasn't terrible! The exterior is charming, the music is fun and the interior is a wonderful throwback to the 1970s. Once inside,... More

We had Margaritas that were great. The food was excellent at a decent price. We have nothing to complain about regarding the service.

This is a great mexican restaurant. The fish tacos are my favorite. Free chips and salsa. My drinking companion said that the Margueritas and the selection of beers were good. Very cute sidewalk seating. T

The tacos that I ordered here didn't taste as good as I expected, however they did have a unique flare to the flavor that I can imagine others may like. The service was spectacular, and the staff and employees tried to make my meal as pleasant as possible.
