I have tried this place several times thinking that I have caught it on a bad night but it is really the same every time. Great atmosphere, friendly owner and staff, nice bar area and outdoor seating but horrible margaritas. Like the worst I have ever had. They are big but about ten bucks, taste like straight tequilla, which I... More

For the 3rd straight visit in a row my experience at Cancun was a huge disappointment. Food was awful and the service was worse. Great location to bad it's wasted with this establishment. NEVER Again will I patronize Cancun. Waste of time and money..

The inside decor is really nice. The prices are average. The food tastes like regular Mexican food you could get anywhere.

This had to have been one of the worst meals that I have ever ordered in a restaurant. We could hear the microwave beeping from the kitchen as they were heating up the pre-cooked food that we ordered. First off we were seated and I immediately noticed that there was food (looked like dried on salsa) all over the outside... More

I stopped by for lunch and a margarita while in Waterville the other day. I had their tacos and they were wonderful. Try their house made chorizo, it's excellent. The margarita was good, too.

When I went here, I liked the food (usually Mexican is not good for my stomach) and it didn't make me sick in the least. However, the price was a bit high...so for that I would not recommend it over Thai Bistro, which is right in the area. But it was a good place for our huge family reunion, so... More

WE had a group of 20 here last night for a birthday party. The majority of us agreed the food was terrible and didn't eat most of the meal. Most of the meals had a '"liquid cheese'" used instead of real shredded cheeses. It tasted fake and made the food soggy. The drinks were very strong. I thought a little... More
