"Taco Truck" Burrito

I order from Cuckoo's nest often, during my work day its the perfect lunch. I love the salads and the taco truck burrito with sweet potato fries. I ordered take out delivery with margaritas to go during covid shut down and it was great! Always great service too. Can't wait to have one of their perfect margaritas in the dining room soon!

Burrito Grande

This is my all-time favorite Chicken Burrito! The spices are perfect and big pieces of chicken. The accompaniments make the dish complete. Love the tamales. Shrimp Flautas are a menu special; I highly recommend!

Fish Taco

My friend and I ordered two hearty dishes to share: the mahi mahi fish tacos and the Chimichanga Grande with beef. Both were lovely to look at and delicious, with just enough heat to whet the appetite, but not so much as to be overpowering for those who like milder presentations. Cuckoo's Nest is clever to achieve a compromise in its menu selections between unusual dishes for the adventurous "foodie" and more familiar plates for those who seek consistency and delight in comfort foods.

Combo Plates

Had a beef taco and chicken enchilada. Both were tasty and full of meat. Rice and beans also full of flavor. Chips and salsa were eaten and refilled often. Nice touch.

Cajun Garlic Shrimp & Scallops

This is my favorite dish here! I highly recommend it. The scallops and shrimp are always fresh- cooked perfectly- the sauce is light, flavorful and delicious! Don't forget to top it with fresh grated Parmesan cheese!!!!

Burrito Grande

We have been going to "The Nest" since 1976 and love it. We often go once or even twice a week. All the meals are excellent and their margaritas beat any we've ever had elsewhere! The take out with deliver during the quarantine went flawlessly. Thanks!

Fish Taco

I have been eating at the Cuckoo's Nest since it opened over 40 years ago, and it still remains one of my favorite restaurants. It is hard to pick their best meal. I have tried just about everything! It is my "go to" place to meet friends and enjoy a great meal at a reasonable price. From the appetizers to the entrees, or even the a la carte menu if you are in the mood for lighter fare, everything remains consistently delicious. It has always been one of the staples of our family. It is especially important that we support them during this difficult time as they offer curbside pick up.

Chimichanga Grande

Best around! Always made fresh. It really is the best place on the shoreline for any Mexican dish. Treat yourself today and head over here to the next. You won't be disappointed no matter what you order.

Southwestern Caesar Salad

We started with the grilled cheese quesadilla and were pleased we had grilled chicken added to it as the chicken was freshly grilled and plentiful throughout each piece. Homemade salsa is the best and is provided complimentary. For entree had shrimp added to the SW Caesar Salad and it was grilled to perfection with a light blackening and an abundance of large shrimp. The salads are obviously made fresh and the combination of beans, corn and addition of red onions made it a delicious meal with house made creamy garlic dressing that compliments the artisan fresh parmesan cheese lightly grated over the top. The numerous selections on the menu make it difficult to choose an entree and there is plenty for non mexican food lovers to enjoy.

Cajun Chicken & Penne Pasta

I absolutely LOVE this dish! The creamy Cajun sauce is so delicious. I always have a hard time deciding because this dish is my favorite but I love love love their nachos as well. Both of my kids love their kids menu so it makes it so easy when we order from Cuckoos Nest to get things my whole family will love!

Southwestern Caesar Salad

I love this Caesar salad! I always add grilled chicken to it and it makes it a complete meal. It's the best and I love the tortilla strips and black beans that give it that Mexican flair!

Connecticut Nachos

I had it with just chicken, tomatoes & mozzarella cheese. It was absolutely delicious. It was so good that I cleaned the plate (I couldn't stop eating it). And it was a good size plate too.

Best on the shoreline. Veggies are fresh & crisp and the chicken moist & tender. Have this with the house good.

Original Nachos

Best Nachos i ever ate! We like to add diced tomatoes sometimes - been thinking about them regularly since this shutdown started. Can't wait to get bk to the Nest for Nachos and a couple of cold Coronas!

Burrito Grande

I get my burrito grande with beef and extra sour cream on the side. I have been going to the cuckoos nest since I was about 8 years old and this is my go to meal. I just recently had my third child and during my pregnancy it was all I craved. I visited frequently and saw my waitress Sue for my Burrito Grande so often that she knew what to order me as soon as I got there! The meal is unbelievable! The beef has mouth watering flavor and seasoning and the burrito is soft and cheese gooey. The meal is served with rice and beans and altogether big enough to feed my large husband, or my pregnant self lol! Though, I almost always have left overs! I highly recommend!

Cajun Prime Rib*

The Cajun prime rib Is hands down the best thing here! So juicy and tender. The potato's are always cooked to perfection. Add a glass of sangria and the meal is phenomenal.

Catherine 3 months ago


I have tried all combinations of the fajitas and they are ALWAYS fabulous! Brought to the table sizzling and smelling amazing, there is consistently a generous portion of fresh, crispy vegetables to accompany your selection of meats and/or shrimp. There are sides of shredded cheese, fresh guacamole and sour cream for you to build your own dinner masterpiece. The Mexican rice is delicious as well and the entire dish can be spiced up further, if desired, with their delicious red taco sauce. This is a go-to favorite menu item, for sure!

Avocado Chicken Salad

I've been to the Cuckoos Nest over 50 times. When you try the food, meet the staff, and actually experience the atmosphere it's easy to see why. My family and I have tried many of the items on the menu, but nothing can compare to the gumbo. Yet everything I've tried from there is never disappointing. The takeout is great too, which is hard to find !!

Buffet Dining

We love the brunch buffet! We visit regularly with our kids, but have also celebrated birthdays, and even a baptism reception at Cuckoos Nest. There's always an amazing selection of food choices, and you can't beat their red sangria. Yum! Looking forward to our next visit!

"Taco Truck" Burrito

First, they have all the typical fare, tacos, enchiladas, etc. However, what they also have are wonderful dishes made with pineapple, mango and wonderful fresh ingredients that are so full of flavor. It is not like any other Mexican restaurant in the area. The place is well decorated and is a friendly place to eat.
