COMMENTS ABOUT THIS RESTAURANT CAN BE POSTED HERE. Menu and Prices are Subject to Change Full Bar, Wine & Spirits Available Childrens and Separate Lunch Menus Available This page last updated 09/01/2011      Cancun Mexican Restaurant is a chain that operates in several cities throughout the Southeast but can vary in ownership from location to location.  Menus and prices may vary slightly for each location but the restaurant generally consistent at each location.  The restaurant staff will change periodically which causes menu recipe variations.  As such, one of the most important menu items of an Mexican Restaurant is the taste and flavor of the salsa.  Sometimes it is good sometimes its a little off.  This recipe can change daily as fresh salsa is made.  Cancun is the taste that is true to actual Mexican Food or at least Tex-Mex.  Some of the restaurant locations are cleaner than others.  It seems as if these restaurants go where the people are rather than looking for a nice building to locate.  But that is the true feel of Mexico, it isn’t fancy, its a wall with several coats of paint and a few momentos here and there aided with Mexican or Tijuana music.  You will find that the atmosphere will vary greatly from location to location as will the service.  The bar is not emphasized, so dont go here looking for a great happy hour or a large selection of drinks.  Go for the food!  Try the Enchiladas Supremus or the Chimichanga.  Cancun also has a good lunch menu selection which offers a good size serving of food at minimal prices.  There are also alternatives such as Emperados (burgers).  Go for a Margarita and the chips and salsa.
