This was my first time at Perico's but my parent have been several time over the years. We really enjoyed ourselves. The waiters are hilarious. The mariachi band was great .We were thoroughly entertained by music, dancing, conga lines, and so much more. Highly recommend for a fun night. My 6 yr old had a blast. The place is pretty... More

We were trying to find a different restaurant that was supposed to have the best sopa de lima (lime soup) and couldn't find it so we stopped here. At the door I asked if they had sopa de lima and he said no. I was so disappointed because I'd been craving it but we were tired and hungry so we... More

The place had barely changed! Fun! Alice, our server, made sure to thank us for our return business and made a great impression on our three children. The food was very good, service and atmosphere was jovial and welcoming. Could not have had a better experience!

We parked by this place on are way to another restaurant, and on the way back to the car we where pulled in by the great music and the Pancho Villa character. That was the best decision we made this trip. We ordered drinks and desert and the staff not only delivered but entertained while doing so. I would recommend... More

Food quality is a little below average, portions are small, prices are really high for what you get. There's good live marimba music and the place is nicely decorated. They have a show which is fun. As mexicans, we don't recommend this place. If you insist to to go, beware of the waiters (our waiter was a tall guy, the... More

Everything about this restaurant was pure entertainment! The decor, the crazy antics of the excellent staff, the audience participation (the actually stopped traffic passing by on the road so we could cance in the street) , the size of the drinks (make sure you try a Martguerita) and the phenomenal food make this place a must visit.

Some in our group had been here before. We decided to go again because it was fun. Food is nothing special. They would not do separate checks and we did not get an itemized bill. 3 people used cards to pay. 2 people who used credit cards had fraudulent charges show up in a few weeks. I used a debit...

It's a good option for the ones who love drinks, which isn't my case at all. It's very typical but everything is about money and you can spend more than you thought.

I visited this restaurant recently with a group of friends. The food and ambiance was great. We were looking for an authentic place. Once we finished, we were told the card machine was not working. Since we were a group, obviously we were not carrying that kind of cash. I gave the waiter one card which did not work. Then... More

I visited Perico's with my wife during our 4-day honeymoon trip to Cancun in March 2014. She had gone several years prior with her family and recommended it highly but I was initially leery. She described it as very authentic Mexican, but fun with a lot of participatory singing and dancing with the restaurant staff. That sounded somewhat kitschy to... More
