“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Wanted to try this restaurant because of a recommendation. Just ran in for a quick break. The guacamole was fabulous and the spinach quesadilla had a unique flavor. Everything was fresh tasting and delicious!

“Awful Service and Food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

We came here HUNGRY then we LOST OUR APPETITE due to various factors.
1. Placing order - We requested for hot tea (none), coffee (none), hot water (none), horchata "rice drink", (none), jarritos "soda" (none, but their decorated on shelves across the restaurant).
2. Rude and unattentive staff - They only came to the table to place the order and drop off the food even though their were 6 other wait staff just walking around and when we wanted to place the order, no one paid attention.
3. Food - The food on the plates were very scarce and spread thin. The layer of beans were at the same height of the rice and both items were taking up most of the plate. The food didn't come out as we requested.
4. Environment - The restaurant seemed dreary and worn.
5. Overview - The staff attitudes and attentiveness needs to change.

“After the movies, we head for the El Cancun.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

The building sits high above Hwy 76 with a great view of Lake Chatuge and the marina. The interior is nothing special and it can get really loud, but I like the food. You can also get a real margarita (not a wine substitute) there. Sometimes the service is lackluster, but the food/drinks get to you speedily. It's very affordable, too.
