We were greeted promptly and our waiter was very nice and personable however he got several things on our order incorrect and while a couple of items were good, the majority was average. Very dark in the booth we sat in also. The one thing I would recommend is the shredded beef. It was tasty! And the margaritas were decent... More

As a frequent patron of this restaurant for the last eight years and a supporter of local restaurants, I have always told friends and family about the great food, staff and service. Since the new management/owners have taken over, my visits have been 50/50. On two occasions my food has not came out of the kitchen as ordered(add fresh jalapenos)... More

I used to enjoy this place. They recently put a larger bar area in and hired some bartenders. I prefer to eat at a bar. The bar set up is nice and well laid out. Unfortunately that's about it. The service from the bar staff ranges for outright bad to outright rude. I have tried to like it and have... More

We had a great meal - excellent sized portions, rice and refried beans fresh, entrees numerous and delicious. I had the Presidente Margareta, my wife had the Sangria both outstanding. Nice Mexican ambiance, great for families - definitely worth a return trip. We will be back!

We have eaten here for years. We went there with our kids and sat there for over an hour and had no food. Apparently a cook was fired and the restaurant is currently being restructured according to the manager. The bar drinks we did receive after 20 minutes were watered down and not mixed well. The waitress kept apologizing and... More

There were 5 of us who met here for lunch for a end of summer get together. We were seated right away and waited on. We all ordered and the food arrived quickly, hot and fresh. We were not in a hurry but we would have been on time from lunch if it was needed. I have been here before,... More

We were in the mood for Mexican and decided to try Cancun. The atmosphere is like a Mexican cantina. The wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable. They started by giving us chips and salsa. The salsa was the best I have had. Couldn't decide what to order so I got a "combo" plate. Everything was great. Will be back soon/

Stopping in for a late lunch was surprised, but delighted, to be presented with an updated menu. Tortilla soup is now available in a cup as well as bowl size...but the cup was immense and just about a meal in itself and loaded with chicken. I never take home leftovers, but had to this time because my burrito entrée was... More

Was not sure what type of margarita to get....first ordered a blueberry one and then my daughter said how about the jalapeño one? I asked the waiter if they were good, and he said they are good. So I ordered. Best drink in the world! Chips and salsa was good. If you like spicy salsa make sure you ask for... More
