What can I say? Excellent food, excellent staff, and great location - if you're near the Oasis Cancun.
If you go, try the sliders.

I really wanted to love this place so we gave it two tries. Although the outdoor atmosphere is nice the food is small and very pricey for what you get. The owners, being from Texas, should know better. They will criticize everything about Cancun and tell you they are the only restaurant in town that is good. We stayed here three months and there are several terrific restaurants in the hotel zone. They either need to serve meals equivalent to their prices or lower their prices. I'm not saying the food is bad, it's just average and not worth the price. That includes the alcohol they serve. There are better places to go.i really wanted to give a better review but I have to be honest.

Jan,
As you know we are located in the hotel zone. In relation to other restaurants around us we feel our prices are extremely fair for what we offer. One taco is served on a 9 inch tortilla topped with enough filling for two tacos at the price of 65 pesos (approx. $5USD). We do not believe we are the only restaurant in town with good food however we do feel we offer a wide variety of flavors that other restaurants don’t. Off our taco menu you have your choice of salmon, Texas brisket, green chili pork and a wide variety of different flavored beef, chicken, shrimp, steak or fish tacos. Not to mention the selection of appetizers we offer. We hope if you return to Cancun you’ll give some different items on our menu a try.

My boyfriend this spot through trip advisor. It was hard to find.
According to other posts it said it was next to the Grad Oasis Hotel.
It's actually across the major street from the Grad Oasis and besides a diving shop on Blvd Kulkulcan. When you are coming into Cancun look to your left and you'll see a small sign.
You'll be happy you went out of your way to find it.
It is texmex like calamari tacos and pulled pork tacos. But DELICIOUS !!!
I warn you. The owner likes to talk to the customers. He's originally from Texas and designed this outdoorsy place himself.
Check it out.

Check out this great roadside drinks/taco destination. They have great choices in tacos - daily specials and standard ones on the menu. Ask for Kenny - he's new and very nice! My partner and I enjoyed a nice break from the day here. Mucho gracias, Kenny!

This was our second and third trips back to Blue Gecko Cantina. Very good and homeade food at reasonable prices. Three beers, a bottled water and two mouth watering tacos for under $24 in the hotel zone is a welcomed change of pace from standard resort food and prices. The owners John and Mimi were so nice and they took the time to talk to us and the rest of the staff as well. We went back to the resort and recommended them to all. Can't wait for next year to visit again.
