Along the way, both brothers worked long shifts seven days of the week. They scrubbed floors, washed dishes, and prepared

Not sure what to say about this place. Some of the food seemed pre cooked but it did offer some new flavor combinations. Chips were pretty good and dipping sauces were unique. I think a second visit might be in order to be sure. No...mole!More

My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of dining at this restaurant and we truly enjoyed our date, and the food was tasty and excellent, and the service was great. A fine dining experience.

We went here just before the pandemic broke out, with some friends. Servers acted like we were a huge bother. Food was just ok, we ordered various tacos and very overpriced for what we got. Maybe places like this will treat us as patrons who...come to spend money with more respect and graciousness since they have not had customers in the numbers of the past during the close time. We will never return total wast of money but the visit with friends was the high spot!!More

Amazing food. Los Cucos Asada is incredible! I’ve enjoyed several dishes, and always order something with Asada because they do such a good job with it. Perfectly charred, but tender every time! I HIGHLY recommend ordering the Queso Flameado with Asada as an appetizer. Everyone...at your table will be glad you did. I can’t say enough good things about the food at Los Cucos. My favorite Mexican restaurant in Utah by far. You won’t be disappointed!More

The service was excellent. The food was good but not great. The portions were large. The chicken salad was good but the chicken chunks were huge. The guacamole was very good.

My nephew took several family members to Los Cucos for lunch. The decor is OK and the service adequate. But the food is made with poor quality ingredients. I ordered a Fajita Mexicana dish and my wife a Mexican bowl. The steak in the fajida...was stringy and tough, the chicken quality poor, and the vegetables were soft and mushy, not crisp. The portions were huge but you end up getting a lot of poor food, so its not a good value.There are a lot of better Mexican options. Pass on Los Cucos.More

This was my first time trying this place and it turned out to be amazing for me! I ordered el memo and my husband el sabroso. Mine was absolutely delicious! My husband thought his was just okay. The chips and salsa were to die for...though! The red sauce was served warm and I thought that made it even better. The green sauce tasted like avocado mixed with some tomatillos and maybe something else. So good! It is definitely a place I will return to. Their menu had so many options, it was hard to choose just one!More

Ok - as a Texas transplant to UT I can say I have missed tex-mex until I came across this gem. This is the same restaurant chain that you see in Houston. Just... awesome. The service is not outstanding but the food is.
