There were some red flags that seem to point to CuCo's struggling. The chips and salsa were not free, the ingredients seemed to be of low quality and the portions were small. My dish was the #26 and they forgot the chile poblano. Numerous little things indicate that there's not much care or quality control going on. With Waunakee's food... More

I had a bad week and decided to stop and have dinner solo, just my Kindle and I. Immediately I noticed that at 5:40 pm, there were only three other tables with diners. This was fine, I wanted quiet. I saw a group of waiters and waitresses grouped behind the bar. They saw me take a seat, yet it was... More

In Waunakee, driving through on the Harley. Hungry. Wanted good, greasy burger but hard time finding a place? WTH? Found a place we thought would work, but NO...They don't serve whiskey (not good!) This restaurant was in the same parking lot... and since we love Mexican, decided to try. We were the only customers here (Sunday afternoon, 2pm). Service good,... More

The staff is never very friendly here. We quit going for this reason. The food was good and there was plenty of it.

My husband loves the food here... not sure why though, but ok. We went here on a Sunday afternoon, the only ones in the place actually. There was no one at the front counter to seat us. First strike. Second, there is a sign when you walk in that chips and salsa are no longer free and no longer endless... More

I came in a Sunday for lunch, I was seated immediately. From there it went down hill, I had to ask for service after sitting over 10 minutes with No acknowledgment, the server finally came and took my order, food was mediocre. She never came back to check on me, another server seen my beverage was empty and filled it... More

There must have been a change of ownership as the waiters and waitresses who have served us in the past were no longer there. For the most part, the food tasted the same but the portion of meat was about only a quarter of what they used to give. Not a good sign. Service went downhill big time. My boyfriend... More

This was a good local mexican restaraunt, but they changed the beef and it is really poor quality now. I went back once and it was still bad. I will not be back

Pretty disappointed in both food and services. Prices were pretty high for what we received and a huge lack of service. I've only visited the waunakee location, but won't be back.

A relatively new restaurant - I believe by same owners of CUCO's in Verona which is listed in tripadvisor; anyway, a great restaurant in any city let alone in Waunakee, WI - totally unexpected gem!
