The chefs at Cucos Mexican Cafe plate up Louisiana-Mex lunch and dinner fare to feed hungry dining duos any time of day. On weekdays until 3 p.m., the lunch value menu sports selections such as three tamales, two spinach enchiladas, or two tacos, each accompanied by a cavalry of black beans, mexican rice, mexican corn, or fries. Among the half-dozen hefty 2-pound burritos, the Burrito Gigante holds both beef and chicken, along with chili, beans, rice, and cheese, while the fajita burrito emits advice when held against the ear like a seashell. The chimichanga, one of Cucos’ classico combos, fills a lightly fried tortilla with seasoned beef or ranchero chicken, and the honorable El Presidente platter bursts with two chimipoquitos, a beef taco, two enchiladas, and a side of guacamole molded into the likeness of Felipe Calderón sipping a margarita.
