    What a nice little treasure we found! We’ve never been here before but will definitely be back. They have a really nice patio that is covered with sail cloth and it kept it cool plus it’s pretty . The food was delicious! The prices are very good in the wait staff was wonderful too. I highly recommend it!

    Cuco's is great. I usually get the fajitas. My wife got the tinga pork last night and it was extra good. If there's a downside it's that the drinks can be inconsistent. We usually order sangria and hold our breath wondering how it will be. It was excellent last night. We miss the salsa bar but I'm sure with Covid it had to go. Great place!

    Highly recommend checking out the patio on a nice, sunny day. Plenty of shade and great vibes for a quick bite or drink. Food was tasty, service was a bit underwhelming. Will definitely be coming back for a taco and a margarita.

    7 of us went in at the last minute. They were very accomodating. The food was quick and everyone got what they ordered. Fajitas (chicken, steak, and shrimp) were very good. The shrimp was the least favorite part. The cheese enchilada was excellent too. Sangrias and margaritas were all very good.

    So my food was alright I had tamales but the other two people in my party had chicken dishes which I did not and they both got sick 4/5 hours after the fact it wasn’t desperately ill like hospital worthy but upset stomach ill. I didn’t have any chicken dishes so everything was alright for me. I will say this it was basically the only place you could get less than a hour wait in Columbus on a Saturday night so I’m grateful for that especially around 8:30. Margaritas were good actually had flavor compared to other places. It kinda made me feel like I was in a tlaquepaque. If you live around southeast ohio you know... all the food looked good chips were kinda meh but what can you expect from complimentary chips. I would recommend if you need a quick affordable meal it may not be the best Columbus has to offer but if you’re like me and can’t find a place to eat on Saturday night without a 1 to 2 hour waitlist it will suffice just fine.

    It is only fair have given them a one-star for the overall experience. I had made reservations on OpenTable only to arrive at the restaurant and find that it was not open at that day and time. As I was on a time constraint. It was very inconvenient.

    The Open Table reservation was pretty much worthless. We arrived a few minutes early and were put into the regular queue of customers waiting. Ended up waiting 30 minutes past our reservation time. However, the food was excellent. Just won't use Open Table to make a reservation.
