I found myself in Boise again for work and decided to have Mexican. I looked for a location near the Spectrum and found Cancun. I have to give a caveat as I ate on a Monday night when only 2 other tables were occupied. I...More

We tried the buffet lunch recently. It was very authentic Mexican food and was just overwhelmed by the selection available. The service staff was very friendly and hospitable. The only problem was I ate way too much.

We came in rather late, food was very good. Everything we ate had great flavor. The family that owns it were very friendly and hospitable. We don't live in Boise but next time we are in the area we will definitely be back.

We enjoyed the buffet and the friendly host. The buffet setup was a little hard to maneuver with these glass hoods over the serving pans...the glass was a little too low. We really liked the authentic food; it was flavorful. It didn't have any dessert...More

If you're hungry, you'll flip over Cancun. I don't usually associate huge portions with quality foods, but you'll get both at Cancun. It was amazing. Very tasty, and enough leftovers for a few more meals.

Great service, but poor food in our opinion. We eat a LOT of Mexican food, but did not like this. I only ate half of my cheese enchilada, it was so bad. The chips and salsa were ok, the bean dip or whatever it was,...More
