Eat Me: Cuban Sandwich at Cuco’s

Tucked away in a nondescript residential area in North Richland Hills sits a little pink building that serves up some wonderful Cuban and Caribbean food. Cuco’s is a family owned sandwich shop that for many years has been a hidden gem in an area not known for restaurants. I was turned on to this place by a friend who is Puerto Rican (thanks Mireida!) She told me these were the best Cubano’s around and she wasn’t wrong.

Too many places slather on too much mustard or use the wrong kind of bread. Cuco’s uses good ingredients and good bread, pressed and toasted just right. Get this along with a side of plantain chips or fried plantains and you have yourself one hearty, filling and tasty lunch. They only have about 8 small tables and the parking lot is very small but the service is fast. Open Mon-Sat 10 am to 3pm.

Cuco’s offer breakfast items, salads, many sandwich options and several Caribbean side dishes. There are also several shelves of Caribbean food products (heavy on the Goya brand) if you are in need.

You should also try the “Media Noche” sandwich. It’s a Cuban served on a sweet egg bread.
