No tables only a wall around the perimeter of the restaurant to sit on, but the food is amazing! My friends and I have made it a tradition to stop when ever we are passing through from LA! Even my other friends from the desert have become fans of this little "hole in the wall" place. But it's got to... More

Cuca's has been around for 20+ years. It now has several branches, but this is the original. It has no seating options, & is a walk-up window with a huge menu board posted outside. The food is good. Simple, straight forward, & calorie heavy, but good. Pro tip: the menu has "taco salad" listed, they're lying. It's nachos. Very good... More

I live on Guam now, but like Maddie (and many others) - Cuca's is always on my mind and in my heart. Last year, I made my first trip back to the mainland in about a decade. And you better believe I went straight to Cuca's. It was basically like the scene in Robin Hood when Kevin Costner lands ashore... More

I'm from Redlands but currently live in Ohio. When I get off the plane the first place I go is Cuca's. It's always my go-to when I need a Mexican fix.

We meet some friends for breakfast at the Cuca's Mexican Food restaurant. I have never had such a wonderful Mexican breakfast. You need to try the "Bloody Mary". I don't like to order Bloody Mary's because they don't usually measure up to my expectations but these were FABULOUS. Great food, good service and nice prices.

I had the "Daily Special"...filling burritos with cheese, chicken or meat. What a delight to the taste buds. There is no real place to sit, so take your own lawn chairs. The inconvenience will be worth it - your taste buds will thank you.

... A bit old school without seating and a noisy Street. Who cares though, order, grab your delicious chips salsa and entrée and head to a beautiful park for a delicious, authentic, reasonably priced Mexican meal.

This has always been a "must do" stop for us in Redlands. It can have a long line at lunch time but the line moves fast.

Cuca's has great food at great price! We are regulars who indulge lunchtime and at dinner. Service is friendly and prompt, with predictable quality over the years.
