“This pizza dances in your mouth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

This has to be one of the best pizza places in Cancun. I normally wouldn't write a review for pizza but this place was special. We went to the plaza location and found the place to be really fun, kind of crazy Mexican pop with blasting music, and cute servers. But the real highlight is e freshness of their pizzas. We ordered one capresse pizza and it was perfect and enough for two. We loved being in a place where locals actually hang out. There were no loud and tacky Americans in sight. The service was great and they actually take credit cards which gave us the best exchange rate. I highly recommend this place if you want to leave the strip and want someplace where the locals hang out.

“Great place in Cancun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

We were in Cancun shopping and the line out the door of this restaurant made us give it a second glance. What a great new surprise. Wonderful food and fun atmosphere. We met the owner as we were reading the sign out side, trying to figure out what kind of a restaurant it was. He helped us out and we made an instance connection. He suggested the Thai chicken salad, a pasta and the right pizza for us to split. Everything was really good, right down to the dessert.

“We love Cheesters.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

We found Cheesters restaurant a couple of years ago. It is now one of our must do places to eat in downtown Cancun. Great Italian food al fresco. Nothing fancy but the owner goes out of her way to please. We haven't been to the Cheesters in the Outlet Plaza yet but it is on our list for next year. THANK YOU MAMA.

“My new favorite restaurant in Cancun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

Our friends in Cancun have been talking about this place forever. Being from the States, the name Cheesters made me think of Chuckie Cheeses, a chain with bad pizza. Boy, was I surprised when we finally want to Cheesters. Now I am kicking myself for not going sooner! The place is a funky eclectic eatery with colorful menus on the walls. The menu choices include appetizers, salads, pizzas, pastas & desserts as well as a breakfast menu. We decided on a tuna appetizer with fresh chunks of tuna atop spinach & cucumbers tossed in a Asain vinaigrette & served with crispy bread . WOW, the flavors, the freshness, it was the very best tuna appetizer, I have ever had! Next, the Thai Chicken Salad with peanut dressing. I have been craving a Thai Chicken Salad since my days in Scottsdale, Arizona (12 years ago) when weekly I would have one at Houstons. Cheesters' Thai Salad blows away any one I have ever had. It was awesome! We also ordered the Giuseppi Pizza with bacon, fresh sauce, cream cheese, mozzarella & arugula. The toppings were all so fresh & flavorful. The crust is thin, more like a tortilla then pizza. They also brought complimentary warm rolls & habanero salsa...yummy. The portions are generous. Since I returned home all I can think about is Cheesters. I can not wait to go back, maybe this Sunday! (They are closed on Mondays.)
