This is one of my favorite places to eat authentic Mexican food. The service is good. They also are quick!

The food was good but not excellent. The wait staff started off good and then dropped off after we got our food. Had to track them down for drink refills.

Visited on 7/17/2015. The service was good. It did not take long to get the food, but it was not that great. The prices are what I would have paid for good Mexican food in Kansas City.

This is a great place to eat Mexican food! Our food has always been very hot, fresh and good! I love the Hawaiinas. It is basically a fajita made with beef, chicken, shrimp, pineapple, onion, green pepper, and red pepper served on a quarter cut pineapple skin. It also comes with tortillas, rice, beans, and a scoop of salsa fresco... More

My wife took there for my birthday. We had been there once before and had a bad experience, but she wanted to try it again. We were pleasantly surprised with the taste of the food and the amount served. The service by the way was very good!

It's pretty much what you would expect from an authentic mexican restaurant. It's good, but not the best I have ever had. Service is less than desirable, and if your drinking stick to beer, something they dont have to make.

We have ate at Cancun several times and every time they have been fast with service and the food was better than most places in town. If your going to eat Mexican give Cancun a try.

After being grossed out by our previous experiences with Mexican food in Hays, we were apprehensive about being guided to yet another one. What a pleasant surprise! The wait staff were prompt and attentive and the four of us were completely satisfied with our menu choices. The chile rellenos were fresh-tasting, the enchiladas had only a thin layer of jack...

Better Mexican food than most of the places in Kansas City! Great guacamole tostada, good beans, tasty quesadillas, decent prices. Certainly the best place in the area (Ellis). Nice folks, too.
