Vegetarians beware -- there is lard in beans and many other things. The food is basic Tex-Mex adapted for what they think Maine will like -- but made as cheaply as possible. Adding fat/lard makes people think they are full and happy but I've known several people (myself included) who got sick after eating there.

Meal & Service were great. Chips were brought out immediately. Waiter was on top of things. Plenty of menu items to choose from.

One of the best choices is the the carnitas dinner. If you order it, you won't be sorry. The service is fast and friendly. Highly recommended.

I was warned by previous reviewers but was hoping they were wrong. The chile relleno, once upon a time, was great. This time, it was two soggy flat halves of a poblano pepper that wasn't even breaded, lying on a place under a morass of green sauce and PROCESSED cheese! They apparently call it "queso fundido" which can mean any... More

We went to Cancun Restaurant to celebrate my daughter's pinning ceremony and graduation of nursing school as a Registered Nurse. She and her husband had dined there on a previous occassion and remebered the food being quite good. The decor was ok and the place seemed clean enough. We were seated by the manager. A waiter arrived and took our... More

I tried this restaurant multiple times over the years, the only remotely acceptable thing is the nachos and they are boring, frankly I'm surprised they are still in business. The enchilada sauce resembles Italian marinara, the meats are bland, and I believe I had American cheese on something. Mediocre service, good margaritas.

I hadn't been in a few years and stopped by last night. I will say that the happy hour house margaritas are a good value for $6. Also, the waiter we had was very attentive and made up for the poor quality of the food, which we found to be very low quality. Sort of like a fast food /... More

We have eaten here 3 or 4 times in the last couple of years. The food is pretty good and there is a large selection. The waiters are always very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is pretty good as well. The margaritas are pretty watered down and they always served them in glasses fresh out of the dishwasher! The warm... More
