Delicious!

I've been coming here for years. Sure, it's quite similar to any other inexpensive Mexican restaurant, but I feel like there's a little bit of charm at Cancun. I've had great experiences with the wait staff, and I have rarely been disappointed with my food. My favorite treat is their fried ice... read more

One of our favorite restaurants. We stopped by for dinner on a Monday night and got the cheap margaritas. They were tasty as was the meal. Not a lot of alcohol in the drink, but I didn't need it. Love the chips and salsa and the service is fabulous! Always fast and courteous. Prices for meals are pretty reasonable too.... More

On Mondays and Tuesdays they have .99 cent margaritas. You can get a medium for $2 and a large for $3. They are tasty, but after two larges, I didn't feel ANY alcohol. I'd rather pay $6 for one good one with actual tequila in it. They either didn't put more than a 1/2 a shot in a large one... More

Good bartenders & cold drinks. Food was great too. Try the flautas. I like the lively atmosphere. Great place to bring a group of friends and family for an evening out. Everyone will enjoy. Especially for birthdays!

Wife and I stopped here today and we got the $5 special. More than enough for lunch..very busy today. Lunch special is for a short time only. ..so call to see if they still are offering. We enjoyed for the price!

If you're looking for an authentic Mexican restaurant to bring a date, look somewhere else...but if you're looking for good food, fast/friendly service, and great maragaritas, look no further. The chips and salsa are free (order the cheese sauce!), the margaritas are only a buck on Mondays and Tuesdays with beer specials on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and the portion sizes... More

Let's be clear, the place is not actively bad and a lot of people love it. I understand why - it is predictable, bland, the service is decent, the place is clean, and the cuisine seems to feature ketchup-like salsa and Velveeta-like sauces (a recipe tailored for midwest tastebuds.) I don't share the enthusiasm, especially when there are many fantastic,... More

This is a classic chain-type restaurant. They have good selection of gluten-free choices. Presdictible menu with good food. Fast service, good value on drinks. I like the loaded nachos, or something like that, gluten-free and very filling.

The white salsa is amazing! Everything on the menu is excellent and so is the staff! Monday and Tuesday are dollar margarita days and they are SO good!

We had lunch there yesterday and they have a $5 lunch menu that has great choices and sizeable portions. The food came very quickly so we were able to get in and out within an hour. The food was very good and the servers were attentive.
