“Lots of Food for the Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

While spending time in Port A we decided to give the Cancun a try for a late lunch. It happened to be $1.50 margarita day and we ordered two lunch specials. The wait staff are polite but somewhat hard to undersand. The restaurant itself is a bit noisy...could use something to baffle the noise level. Overall we were served quicklly and it was hot and our plates were full. If you're hungry, definitely OK for the price. The restaurant itself is fairly new with tiled flooring and a bar. I'm sure we'll go back again.

“Typical Mexican Cantina”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

The food was good and the value was acceptable, but it was really just comparable to your typical average Mexican restaurant. The portions were large. Chips were thick and nothing special. Dinners were average.

“Love their crispy tacos.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

Best crispy tacos in the island. Good texmex. Good piña coladas. Fast service.

We first came here about 8 years ago. Loved the food but couldn't stand the cigarette smoking in the restaurant. They have changed to non smoking and we go several times during our vacation time in Port A.

“Cheap but good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

We visited this place for lunch and I chose it because of the reviews. It is in a small shoppig center and is very bland on the inside. We were nervous at first because we were the only ones in there but after the chips and queso came I knew that it was going to be a great food experience. I really enjoyed my enchilada dinner and the prices were low. It isnt a palace but if you are looking for more authentic food and a low price you will love this place.
