We have gone to this casual maybe even super casual since the 80's when we brought our kids with us when they were little. We took all of our children AND grandchildren this time and OMG did they have fun! Expect crazy waiters dancing with you or themselves! You may get on a conga line out the door and brown... More

We were a party of 9 friends and had an awesome time. The food and the drinks were great. The ambiance and decoration very impressive. And best of all the people made you feel so good with tricks and costumes and you're part of the show. It's in Downtown but is a safe area to walk inclusive at midnight.

Typical Mexican food. Big restaurant. Variety of dishes to choose from. Popular for locals and tourists, as there is a great fun environment with live Mariachi´s playing their popular songs. Worth to stop by and enjoy a nice meal and decoration. Low prices. Vallet parking available.

Very good Clean authentic Mexican restaurant. At around 9 the whole Restaurant turns into a conga line snaking through the Kitchen into the alley and back to the Front Door where they poor everyone a liberal amount of Cuervo out of the Bottles. The bar has saddles instead of cool, this would be a must do in my book!

On our 4th visit to Cancun again visited the amazing Perico's. My first Perico's experiences were 15+ years ago and, at the time there was a line to get in the place and all corners of this enormous place teeming. Today they are just using the front part and if one wanders around the back you can see the old... More

The decor is aged, but that's what made this restaurant so authentic. The food was very tasty and they didn't take forever to prepare it. The waiter was full of humor and had many surprising, cheeky props, which made the experience all the more fun. Great service.

The waitress and the service was very good, but the place needs major renovation. The food is just.... normal. The place is just good for drinks.
