Whilst staying in Burbank we went to Don Cuco for dinner and we were hooked. This is a fantastic Mexican restaurant that offers beautiful flavored meals, great drinks and the staff were friendly and efficient. By the end of several days in Burbank we had visited the Don on three occasions. If only we could take them back to Australia... More

A local hot spot for the best Mexican food around. Great menu variety. Clean and cozy Mexican decor, very warm and colorful. Adjacent to Toluca Lake. We've visited multiple times for lunch and dinner. The half hour drive from home is worth it. Great margaritas and always a choice of black or refried beans...both great! Separate bar area is always... More

We came as a family while on vacation. The meats were prepared incredibly well and our dishes were very flavorful. I highly recommend eating here. Service is well done too. I would return.

I have heard such good things about Don Cuco and wa so looking forward to finally going. I thought the food was so so and I am sorry but the Margarita's were not good. A bit pricey and just did not get a warm and fuzzy feeling from the staff. Maybe I will try it again, we shall see.

Ate here twice since we were staying just across the street. One night just two of us, the next 4 adults and 2 kids. Pleasant staff! We had some picky eaters and there was something for everyone. Just a nice evening. Good drinks😀

It's been a while, but it wasn't good enough to replace my go to place for Mexican food. I can't rally say anything was bad, but neither can I say anything was great. The prices seemed a little higher than similar restaurants, but the food wasn't any better.

We've been going to Don Cuco's for well over twenty years. My kids have always requested that we go there for their birthday dinners (and they are adults and still want to go). The food is great and the staff is beyond wonderful. We have dinner there several times a month.

Ate here in visit to nearby Warner Studios. Service great, we sat outside on a lovely sunny day. Food was fine, could have been spicier for me

This small restaurant has Mexican charm in every nook and cranny. The restaurant has dim lighting and tables, while close, feel very private. There is a small outdoor dining area. The food was delicious with large portions. The Burrito combos were stuffed with chicken. I had to take 1/2 home with me for another meal.

Thank Wendy B
