Based on local recommendation I finally tried Sanborns. It was an odd experience in several ways, but mostly the food was just okay for the price. I won't be going back. The service was also okay to odd. It seemed to be mostly Mexican but with some fusion items. It was somewhat expensive considering the quality of the food.

There is nothing special about Sanborn. Nothing bad. Nothing good. You get the food you'd expect, nothing more nothing less. Nothing tastes great but one nice thing if I've never struck out either. For those from the US this is as much as a Denny's clone as you'll find.

In the nearly 20 years that I have lived and worked here in Cancun I have been to the Sanborns Restaurant countless times with friends.

This one like many is attached to a... More
