I'm sorry to say that I was disappointed in this restaurant. But it sure wasn't the fault of the guy who seated and waited on us. He was great. But the food was below average in my opinion. My wife thought hers was okay. If you only have one shot at Mexican food in Boise I would recommend you go... More

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 other than chocolate chip cookies... When we come back to Boise, we will stop in... 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, was VERY salty. They don't have a liquor license, only beer and wine. That would... More

This was our first visit to Cancun Authentic Mexican restaurant. We noticed a sidewalk sign that said they had a Buffet everyday, and decided to give it a try. The decor isn't 'fresh', but it's not as bad as some I've seen. Our table space was clean and gave me no concern for food safety. After being seated, a big... More

We had the buffet. There were about 4 entrée selections including Chile Colorado, enchiladas, chile relleno's, ground beef and rice and beans. The food was hot and fresh and was very tasty. The enchiladas were refilled while we were there and the service was excellent. Very friendly and attentive to drink refills. We would return but would like to try... More

Deceided to try the lunch buffet because El Gallo Giro in Kuna is quite a bit farther. The food was ok, but my biggest complaint was that the food was lukewarm at best. We went at noon figuring they would be busy and fresh food would be brought out. There were only about 8 people there and the food must... More

I will admit, the decor in this place is absolutely hideous, that's why I've rated 4 stars instead of 5. HOWEVER...The food was delicious and the plates were literally DOUBLE the size of any other restaurant I have ever been to in my entire life. The portions were enormous. I have quite the appetite, yet still managed to have enough... More
