Went today to eat lunch with two of my very good friends... we sat outside which was helpful as I have a service dog... Simone went above and beyond to ensure that we had everything we needed... including a bowl of water for my service dog... Food was great, prices are huge and the staff was fantastic....Ty guys!

First, the food is good! My wife and I stopped in for lunch on MLK day 2015, ordered our lunches, then I decided to have a margaita, however since our last visit I learned that the drinks are weak. Thus I asked for a double-shot of Patron in the drink to make it worthy of being called a margarita! Once... More

El Tucan is a small Mexican restaurant that offer really good food at reasonable prices along with great atmosphere and excellent service. It is a favorite of locals located near the Merritt Square Mall. When we take our guests to eat there they always enjoy it. A good choice for families and all ages.

Mexican dining at it's finest. Festive décor, pleasant staff and excellent food. I couldn't decide between spinach or pulled pork enchiladas so the waitress was accommodating enough to allow me to combine both! The queso and chips were wonderful as was the salsa. Bring your appetite however, because the portions are HUGE! Highly recommend and can't wait to go back!

This is a great Mexican Restaurant that has been around for a long time. A favorite of the locals. It is kinda hidden on Merritt Island. Next to Steak and Shake across from the Merritt Island Mall. Go early as they are very busy and there is usually a line. If you like garlic......try the shrimp and garlic!

Enjoyed a very nice meal here with family. There was 4 of us and every order was perfectly prepared. Have ate here several times and never had a bad experience. Whether you get the fajitas, enchiladas, steak, or any of the combo meals you won't be disappointed.

It's a superb dining experience. The chips and salsa are great. We usually eat at the bar which adds to the experience because they are so friendly and helpful. I enjoy Mexican food, but it's hard to find a Mexican establishment that stands out with their cuisine. El Toucan does it all!

We absolutely love the bartender TORI mainly the reason we stop by is for the company. Her partner john always is right there to help her with anything she needs. Very friendly duo behind the bar. Whether it's chips and dip or a tasty beverage. My i just love it the atmosphere!

This is going to be a short review: This is the best Mexican food that I've ever eaten. The chips, the salsa, the entrees were all very delicious. The speed and quality of service was excellent. Outstanding restaurant.
