Except for Taco Bell, Cancun is the only Mexican restaurant between Jacksonville and Surf City on the NC coast.......so ya figure they don't have to be great to get their share of business. I'm pleased to say that they do Mexican well despite the lack of challenge. The chimichanga (chicken) was very good (light but crispy fried and well sauced). The shrimp tacos with chipotle cream sauce rated very high on the taste scale. Didn't love the chile poblano (no fry crust on the pepper, no cheese on board the bland ground beef), but that was the only drawback, Queso dip was right on, and their house salsa suited my preference for a medium spicy, cilantro-forward sauce. Very good refried beans and rice sides to the entree. Those little touches can make a big difference in a Mex meal. Small demerit for having no condiments, salt & pepper or napkins available at the table - but the server jumped on it when asked. Cancun deserves my repeat biz (they kindof have us captive anyway), and I'll be pleased to explore the menu further as a new Topsail Island resident. Near the top of the (non-seafood) restaurants in that stretch of coast....at least so far.......

Our family ate here for dinner while on vacation in Topsail. Service was friendly and efficient. The chips and salsa are excellent. We ordered ACP, carne azada, and fajitas. Everyone thought their meals were delicious. Meals were reasonably priced, and the restaurant was clean and the atmosphere is pleasant.

The place is cute, service is great and food is really great! One of the best chimichangas around and their queso dip and salsas really good. Staff is highly competent and knowledgeable. Offer daily specials. Taco Tuesday is a packed house and everyday has a joyful vibe!

Had the cheesesteak quesadilla and it was HUGE took up 1/2 the plate. Friendly staff and service was quick. Large portions and prices reasonable.
