Food was awful ☹️. My meal was supposed to come with shrimp and chorizo over rice with cheese dip poured over everything. What I got was cheese dip on the bottom, rice over the cheese and burnt ground beef on top of that with no shrimp at all. It was carry out so I didn't even notice until I got home. I tried to eat it but the burnt hamburger was overwhelming. The meal ended up in the trash. I am completely disgusted!! I will NEVER eat there again! The cook could clearly see the meat was burnt and it was missing the shrimp! I do not recommend this place

If there were only zero stars... I got the ribeye steak and I'm very sorry but there is NO WAY this could be considered good mexican. Honestly the worst mexican I've ever had. Very disappointed. It was only $12 so I guess I should have known. It was almost like the steak was boiled then seared on each side... it was almost a grey color 😳😳. After 2 bites i stopped. I'm an oversized individual so I was really looking forward to good food 😔😔

I didn’t like...food not tasty. Service doesn’t exist at all. You can say that they are family. Maybe that’s why the organization kind of loose.

Delicious food - great atmosphere. Be careful going on Friday or Saturday nights... they seem to get overwhelmed and food comes out very slow and the waitstaff become forgetful. Otherwise worth a visit.

Literally the worst Mexican food I have ever had in my life. Shrimp tasted old, beef in fajitas was non existent, and the service was was worse than poor. Only come here if you need to fuel yourself from a day or drinking.

We enjoyed our visit for it was nice to be with family and share a night out. We have patronized El Cancun for some time because the food is good and surrounding view is great! Their margaritas aren't bad either! All employees were wearing mask to comply with the rules. They were quite busy since this was the first true opening (imo) in light of the covid crisis. The only thing I could say that would help is napkins, paper menus and all the regulars when sitting down. Glass of water...Now us, except for napkins(had to wipe the sauce off my menu) didn't really care. We knew it was going to be like this. We just wanted to eat out! Lol! In the past before covid though we have experienced this. Even with the on slaught of the public I give the Cancun a high 5 for serving us at such a demading time

I had the Mexican T-bone. Never had it before... It was very good and our waitress was superb, cracking jokes back. She goes by "Lavender". Im not giving her real name because of idiots that are disrespectful. Overall I'll be back looking for something else to try.

The food was good and came out quickly. The server was attentive for about five minutes. After that he was scarce. When he did come around he was attentive to the man, didn't ask if I wanted another drink only him, didn't take my plate when he took his, didn't even ask if I was finished and we had to hunt him down for the check. Other than that my experience was good. I'd still give it another chance.

The food was extremely wet and unseasoned the chips were the best thing. The shrimp were unseasoned as well as the grilled onions that were not grilled properly and still raw. The waitress was nice and the cashier customer service was okay. I didn't think you could mess up Mexican food but at lass El Cancun found a way. El Cancun was so bad I'll never forget it.

We love mexican restaurants and like to try new spots from time to time. This place was absolutely horrible. I don't think I have ever disliked a restaurant as much as this place. The chips were either stale or saturated in oil, the tacos were so soggy we couldn't even pick them up. The flavors have zero business being in a Mexican restaurant. Its almost as if the cooks have never actually eaten mexican food or the Principal is too cheap to let them buy ingredients that actually taste good. Skip this place.
