Great food, but pretty expensive

The food and drinks were really good. Some of the best I had in Cancun. However, expect to pay about $13US for a burrito. Yes, if is a huge burrito but I pay less than that in the US so it was a surprise to me. Drinks were great, but expensive as well. Worth a visit.

This place is a must for your first visit to Cancun. Maybe not your second or third but you must go at least once. It is very fun and has shows going on all night. Lots of tequila flowing too!

It's a chain restaurant and it seemed that we were solicited to buy something every 15 mins. Ballon animals, pins, hats, who knows. Anyway, sit by the windows to also get a view of the street action.

Wait staff very fun, all got a balloon hat and crowns. Food was better than average, nothing extra special. Priced higher than should be, but we got some entertainment. Waitstaff gets customers up to line dance/ tequila girls come by for shots and Jell-O shots. Good place to eat then go shopping at mall and market right there.

This place was an okay place to eat. They came around to our table and tried to do funny things like putting sombreros on our heads and taking our picture. Of course they came back around later to show us the picture in a VERY cheap frame and wanted us to give them $20 dollars for it. Food was OK... More

Dependable good food in a raucous party atmosphere. Lots of action, loud balloons, a traveling guacamole cart, shots in your mouth, balloon hats for everyone, group sing and dancing by the wat staff...you get the picture. Food ranges from chicken strips for the kids to jumbo fajitas to shrimp skewers. Nothing is prize worthy, but you come here for the... More
