Tucked into a small Lynden strip mall, Cancun is definitely a family run business, which is part of its charm. Don't expect huge portions, but DO expect emphasis on huge flavor. LOVE the mango Pico de gallo! And, the margaritas are not to be missed.

Although the sign outside the door says “Cancun Mexican Restaurant” the Chefs dishes are more reminiscent of Costa Rica; El Salvador; or Nicaragua – in other words – the flavors and tastes of Central America as opposed to Mexico. Never mind – the food is delicious and the service polite and efficient. This is my favorite “go to” restaurant in... More

Had dinner here the other night. Service was good but not the Mexican style restaurants we're used to from the south. Very skimpy on the salsa, but it was good. The chips were rather greasy and again not many and they didn't offer more. The shell for the taco salad tasted like it had been fried in old grease. The... More

My friend and I stopped in here for a bite and I was not impressed. The food took awhile to get to the table, the service was slow, and they wouldn't let us pay separately without an extra charge. I won't be returning

A small restaurant that is tucked away in a strip mall that has excellent food and service. A Mexican treasure in a Dutch town.

This is a very good little Mexican food restaurant on the north side of Lynden. The menu holds more than your usual tacos and enchiladas. Service is good and the owner, Uriel, is very accommodating.

Spotted in on a whim, and we were so glad we did! Started from the mango salsa and chips to the Carne Asada everything was phenomenal. Such wonderful flavor and the portions were perfect. The menu might be small but the items we had were terrific. Will definately add this to our favorites.

Thank Nessie7097
