“Many locations-different presentations”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Have been to several - they all differ in quality, ambiance and service. Not impressed with quality or ambiance. Not first choice for Mexican.

“Good salsa & beer, very bad food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

I wish I could give a good review because the staff was very friendly. The hotter of the two salsas served with the chips was very good. They have both Dos Equis and Negra Modelo on tap which you can get "Grande" in a huge full liter frosted mug. Unfortunately my entree Chile Poblano was inedible: a sloppy, mess cooked beyond recognition served in a pool of grease. After two bites I ate only the rice and left hungry. The property both inside and out is rundown and worn-out. The place needs a complete renovation or an "Out-of-Business" sign.

“Tucked away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Tucked away behind the KFC is this wonderful old Mexican restaurant and it serves adult beverages. Spicy cheese dip was especially good. Service was quick and accurate. Easy to get to once you find it. My favorite was their chili poblanos.

“Authentic Mexican Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

El Cancun has alwys had Mexican food as it is served in Mexico, or at least as close as possible. Quality is great value is excellent and service is above average. Atmosphere is good and all the smells and sounds found in a restaurant in Puerto Vallarta are in abundance.
