I have eaten here once a year for 6 years, always on returning from a week at a Mayan Riviera resort. The atmosphere is lively and the menu is varied, though I always seem to choose the ribs. Again, this year I chose the Jack Daniels ribs and they were tender and tasty. A nice amber beer helped them go... More

Our expectations were low for an airport restaurant but we were pleasantly surprised with the staff and food. The restaurant is quite large and had a lot of waitstaff on hand. The gentleman that seated us was quite pleasant and our waiter was excellent. He was friendly but not intrusive. We ordered and received our meals quicker than expected for... More

Since you have to get to the airport so early to fly back to the states it is a good place to have a bite and talk. You are not crowded together so you can stretch out and the bathroom is next door. We shared an order of potato skins and each had a soft drink and it was very... More

After experiencing fair to poor food at our resort for the week we were very happy to get hot and delicious food. It was so nice to sit down and enjoy a good meal and good drinks with great service. I would certainly recommend this place.

I had a burger here on 1 January and within five hours (luckily just as we were arriving back in Canada) I was violently ill and have been ill since. I know it was the burger as it was the only thing I ate that day and what I ate the preceding day I shared with my girlfriend who has... More

Typical TGI Fridays, food was as expected, wasn't too over priced, and we didn't have to fight for a seat in the food court. We had some food sensitivities in our group and the waiter ran back to the kitchen a few times in order to make sure it was ok. All and all a positive experience before our flight.

The food here was as is expected (not so good, not particularly bad). It also came pretty fast. We found the waiter quite rude. We wanted to pay in pesos (cash) and handed him our last notes that was about 10 % over the total. We thought it would be a decent tip as we only ordered Cokes and burgers... More

We had lots of time at the Cancun international airport and we tried TGIF as it was near our departure gate - not the best option

We had a long wait for flight so went in here. Ordered refillable drinks and food. Burgers were massive and very tasty
