Absolutely the worst mexican food I have ever had!! The service or lack there of is just HORRIBLE! The manager is VERY RUDE!! We ordered take-out when my grandfather was on hospice and they messed our order up, when I brought it back to be fixed the manager was rude and then they proceeded to screw our order up again....

This is the third time my wife and I have been to this little place over the past three years. We visit Hiawassee every year in October for a week and we stop in each time we are in town. This is a clean, well-kept little place with a great view of Lake Chatuge. The menu is quite extensive and... More

Overall reasonably priced menu compared to other Mexican restaurants in the area. Portions are a little smaller and you don't get as much cheese but you save money. Outdoor seating available with a nice view of Lake Chatuge.

El Cancun Mexican restaurant was close to the Ridges Resort and the food was very good. They had a large menu to choose from and you had the option of eating inside or outside.

Most of food that we have eaten here, on several occasions, has been sub par. Service is slow. Decor is colorful and lively. Prices are fair. Salsa not flavorful and chips generally stale.

This is our favorite Mex restaurant to eat at. We are in the Hiawassee area quite a bit and this is the only Mexican Restaurant we eat at. The food is very good, the service could be a little better at times but the good food outweighs the friendliness. We get our food delivered quickly after ordering and the view... More
