This morning, Cuco's announced the sad news on our Facebook page, corroborating news we had heard last night from a tipster. Also, yesterday a Craigslist post seemed to confirm the news, advertising the space at 488 Haight for $3800/month. The post reads:
"750 sf - presently a Mexican Restaurant. Please do not disturb present tennis's [sic] business in your 'viewing'."Cuco's has been owned by the Campos family for more than 20 years, with matriarch Carmen Campos leading the way and her four children a regular presence in the restaurant. Their plantain burrito was named best vegetarian burrito in the city by Burritophile in 2005, a title which was confirmed by MissionMission just this past August. We've reached out to Carmen for more information, and will update accordingly.
