Living in the Atlanta area, we are familiar with many great restaurants. We were in the Springfield area visiting family and this restaurant intrigued us. We decided to try it--great decision! The restaurant itself is amazing--the decor was unique and so inviting. We especially loved the booths downstairs. We felt like we were in our own private space. The food was outstanding and so reasonably priced. We had several dishes but especially loved the Tequenos and the Drunken Goat Seco--so unlike anything we had ever tasted before. We met the owners who are as friendly and welcoming as family. If you are in the area, this is definitely worth the trip. You won't be disappointed!
There's a lot of "hole-in-the-wall" BBQ places in Springfield - Buckingham's, Pappy's, Crosstown, etc. - all pretty good. And then there are the higher end places like Famous Dave's and Rib Crib. Holler Boys stands up in both taste and quality to all of these while being slightly cheaper. Their meats and sauce don't set them apart from the others (I didn't try their ribs) but they are tasty. Highlights are the homemade fries and fried pickles. They don't have seating so plan for take-out. Certainly worth dropping in if you want some quick, decent BBQ to take home on the cheap.
This place is a perfect balance of everything you want in a restaurant. Atmosphere is amazing. Beautiful, charming and not too Pretentious. You can actually relax here! Food is flavorful, healthy and filling. The menu has a wide range from the safe to the exotic and prices that are definitely affordable. The staff is super friendly and make you feel like you just belong there. Cafe Cusco is definitely on the top of the list of best restaurant experiences in Springfield. Plus it is inside one of the cities oldest buildings in the beautiful C Street historic district.
