In their defense, they had many guests so i'm sure the staple items on the menu are good. The environment seemed nice.

I don't know a better way to sum up this place other than incredibly average. The chips were stale, the salsa not much flavor, the shrimp special was bland and the Pollo Cancun was good. The margarita was not one of my favorites. I think it was the mix that they use. The highlight was they had Sol bottles for... More

Growing up in San Diego, my view of Mexican food is a little different than the 'norm', but the food they serve is good and the service was very attentive.

Cancun is a favorite of my husband and I. We go at least every other week. Sometimes every week. Good atmosphere and great staff

This restaurant is forgettable, at best. The interior is all a utilitarian tan and light wood without an ounce of character. The walls need paint, and a person notices that right away because there is almost no decor. The tables and booths, plates and cutlery, and everything else seem like the owner went to a restaurant supply house and bought... More

The food was good. The service was good. There was nothing that stood out about this restaurant. An average Mexican restaurant.

We came in and it was as hot in the restaurant as outside. We saw the thermostat set at 83. We asked them to turn it down and they said only the owner had a key and he had said earlier he wouldn't turn it down. The entire table was sick from the heat and sweating. If the owner cuts... More

The place was clean and quiet. The meal started with warm chips and two heats of salsa. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. The food was hot and flavorful. The wait for the food was less than expected. I'd gladly eat there again if I am in the area.

Being from the south and away from home for several weeks, and having a craving for Mexican food we took a chance on Cancun. It was not the same type of Mexican food we are use to, but it satisfied our craving. The nachos were excellent. The fajitas were satisfactory. Chips and salsa was tasty. Cold beer and excellent nachos... More

I looked at the reviews for this restaurant before eating here. The reviews from the past year were all good. The bad reviews were prior the past year. One great concept about this Mexican restaurant is that you can order regular or spicy salsa with the complementary tortilla chips. I ordered the spicy salsa and it was good. For my... More
