Excellent menu for a great price, the food is authentic Mexican food like Abuelita used to cook. I liked coming for lunch as it's a quick wholesome meal that is very satisfying. If you're looking for a good Mexican food restaurant look no more..... This...More

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

Cuquita's is always great! We love the the fresh corn tortillas and real Mexican food. I usually get breakfast for dinner. We have been coming to Cuquita's for over 15 years.

Service is pitifully slow! The watery salsa is the worst. Don't bother ordering a margarita! We finally walked out because we still hadn't received our food 45 min later.

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.
