“Upscale Resort Mexican”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

My wife and I ate, or should say, over ate at Cancun Grill last evening. This was our first visit since it remodeled/enlarged at the same location. First, the remodeling affords additional space for tables, for the bar, and for waiting for your table. The new entrance is more accessible and inviting from Wall Street. Because of additional tables, we did not wait for seating even though we arrived at 6:30 on Friday evening. Second, the new space seems rather like a warehouse - large, open, exposed concrete ceiling, noisey. The former space was more intimate and more inviting. Third, quaility of food is exceptional. Do not expect typical Mexican. This menu is more sophisticated which is expected because the owner and chef formerly worked at the Midland Country Club. We started with crab cakes. They seemed slightly overcooked and one was presented in pieces; however, they were delicious. My wife's seafood enchiladas were perfect. The snapper was cooked perfectly and was tasty. Portions were generous. ( Ignore the complimentary chips and salsa to save for the entrees. ) Oh! Exquisite, perfectly prepared margaritas started our dining experience. The dessert menu offers enticing options. We could not resist the tres leches cake which we shared because of our generous entrees. In conclusion, we will return. Delicious food and drink, though pricey, but what isn't pricey in Midland, Texas these day.s Service was attentive and the manager checked on tables. Top of the line in Midland, Texas.

“Definitely good food!”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

The remodeled and expanded home is great for the worker bees in the offices downtown, but it's worth a trip from out of town to enjoy the well prepared and tasty food. Starting with the salsa and chips, you'll enjoy a different, but enjoyable meal.

“A Good Place”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

When you walk on the street, the entrance is located through a lobby. Food was very good.

I eat here on a regular basis...great seafood dishes with REAL crab. Service is attentive and best semi casual dining atmosphere in Midland.

“Best Mexican in Midland”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

Fresh Mexican all the way. This place will change your view of Mexican Food. I had the New York Strip tacos. You got it, New York Strip...not that mystery beef from most places. The seasoning is present but not like that strip mall place. The service was outstanding. Everyone is involved in making your visit enjoyable. BTW, the former Frist Lady has known to frequent establishment when in town. Go here for all of your Mexican Food desires. You will not be disappointed.
