Everything is good and fresh.
Love the chili rellenos and the street tacos are the bomb. Great friendly service they aim to please. They cater too! Across the street from Wallmart

“Unexpected little gem.”
Reviewed June 25, 2014 via mobile

We have only recently discover the Taco Cancun and really enjoy it. Basic American type Mexican food with good flavors and good portions. Wait staff was very helpful and friendly. We think this is the best Mexican restaurant in the area and would recommend it. Only thing we didn't like was that the tacos come with "raw" corn tortillas--and we like ours seared over a flame or deep fried--but everything else was spot on!

“Great Value - Great Salsa Bar”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

While traveling through Wasilla, AK, we stopped at Walmart and after shopping wanted a quick, light meal before continuing on our way. We found Taco Cancun Mexican Grill in a strip center right across the street.

Inside, the cozy restaurant has a bright fast food look - order at the counter - but there are about 8 booths for dining in. We zeroed in on the senior menu and found plenty of offerings. We selected the Taco lunch and Enchilada lunch, both $7.95 which includes rice & beans and a soft drink. The beef taco and chicken enchilada were freshly prepared and very good - and absolutely stuffed with the tasty fillings. There are lots of other choices including Chile Rellenos, Quesadillas, and seafood. Also beer - Alaskan Amber and Pacifico on tap. You don't find that in fast food places.

A unique feature of this restaurant is the self-serve Salsa & Chips bar with 3 salsas to chose from. The mild version tasted very fresh (it is not pico) with chucks of fresh sliced green onion throughout. The (pleasantly) hot version is made with either fire-roasted peppers or tomatoes, or both - you can definitely taste the smoke. Excellent. The "very" hot version is green chile-based and has great heat but not so much that you burn up. Very, very good as well. One bite tells you these salsas are made in house. What a plus! The chips were warm and salty - just the way we like them. There is also Mexican crema, ranch dressing, jalapenos, and limes on the salsa bar.

Give this small, family-run restaurant a try. You will be glad you did.

“Best Mexican food in the valley!!”
Reviewed June 12, 2014 via mobile

We ordered carnitas tacos and Fajitas tacos.....both were excellent! The salsa bar was very good....the salsa verde was the best!! Very friendly staff, great atmosphere, generous portions and reasonably priced for good Mexican food! We will definitely visit again next time we're in the area.

“Great food”
Reviewed April 1, 2014 via mobile

This is one of our favorite places to eat at. Small and personal with great food. Feel we are just part of the family and are treated as such.
