We went here one evening for dinner with another couple. A lot of locals frequent this place and always have good things to say, so I was expecting delicious food. I ordered the large guac for the table and although it was a little pricey...More

I am from NY so I am a food "snob". I have had great Mexican food in the best restaurants in NY. Cancun is by far the best I have ever had. Keep it simple, or order one of their specialties and you will not...More

Drinks are ok. Food is atrocious. Cheese dip has no flavor. Guacamole is slimy. Seasoning on the meat is foul. Have gone 3 times really wanting it to be good. We are done.

The food is great. Some of best Mexican in town but it is a little pricey. The atmosphere is good for families and they have a full service bar.

Despite Cancun having been in business for many years, we had never eaten there before last night. This was our first and last visit. While there was nothing overtly wrong with our visit we just felt there is better Mexican food available in this area....More

Dropped in for lunch recently. The food was OK, but not great, but I'm very picky about Mexican food. Having spent many years in So Cal, I set the bar high. The service was fast and the server was friendly.

CANCUN is really good. Hector the owner is the one that gives this place “chispa”. We were both happy with our meal. If you are looking for really good Mexican food, come to the Cancun. Save room for the Flan.
