I have never had a bad meal here and I have been here plenty. Uriel has created a very welcoming, friendly fun place. It is small, only about 12 tables, but it has become my favourite place to go on Friday nights. At the end of a busy work week a margarita (and I have a dozen to choose from)... More

My wife and I walked in for our first visit and were surprised at how tiny the place it. That isn't an issue for us but it was a little shocking at first. We arrived a little after 1:00 in the afternoon so the lunch rush (if there is one) was over. There was one occupied both with four people... More

Was taken here by friends who live in Lynden. This is their favorite Mexican place in town. I'm so glad they took me there because I'd never find it on my own. The Cancun is small and when we got there we had to wait for a table for about 10 minutes. The wait was worth it! They have many... More

Very very high prices for very little food. First time left a Mexican Restaurant hungry. Now I know why no one was in the restaurant! Besides the regular menu prices being high even the children's menu is priced high. The cheese quesadilla for kids included two tiny triangles of cheese quesadilla and rice + bean for $6.50! The tacos al... More

The service started a little slow but ended up being very attentive. I had the special which was very good. The ingredient were fresh and the food was hot. My only complaint is the salsa was flavorful but not very spicy. I do like my salsa spicy. The price was decent for the amount of food. I did like the... More

I was here in February 2014 and I was blown away by the good flavors and fresh Mexican food. I had the Chili Relleno, which was perfect ... it's how I compare Mexican restaurants. I came back a second day and had the Mole special. Their mole is a family recipe passed down. The margaritas were dialed up just right... More

My wife and I ate here for the first time a couple of days ago ... one of those, "Let's give it a try" things. It was really a very pleasant experience. The first thing you notice, however, is that the place is WAY small. If there were 20 people there it would be uncomfortably crowded. That said, the small... More

What I like most about this place is the quality of the ingredients and preparation. Many of the traditional meals have subtle, imaginative touches given to them. The owner is very friendly, and obviously proud of what he puts in front of his customers. The Margaritas are incredible here! Seating is limited. I hate to give this place less than... More
