This is one of the best tasting authentic.Mexican inspired cuisine that I have ever tasted since Chicago. They are small but wonderful. Great staff and they corrected my meal when it was wrong, no arguments or issues. EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! I RECOMMEND

Review №2

My wife and I love to travel all over Michigan trying different Mexican restaurants and if you write this place anything less than a five star it was because you are uncultured and have no idea what you're talking about the service is amazing the food is crazy good in giant portions they're fast and on top of it and the tacky chairs and booths just at the place off it's crazy good 11 out of 10 would absolutely recommend.

We are from Indy and love trying new restaurants. Food was good. We had Mayito special and chicken tacos. Of course had to get the cheese dip with the chips. Salsa wasn't as good as we've had at other places but not bad.I don't like having to give my personal information just to see a menu.

Review №4

Good food, limited beer/drink selection. Two of our entrees were very good (shrimp fajitas and veg. plate w potatoes rice and beans,) and one was alright (beef burrito.) Classic decor. Next time I'd get more seafood-- they did a great job with the shrimp.

Review №5

Very fast service. The food was amazing

Review №6

We've order take out on many occasions now from this location. One order we did have an issue. Made them aware the next time we ordered as it's a solid 45 minute round trip and they made it up to us. Had the opportunity to dine in there for the first time this weekend. Service was great. Staff was great. The person we know as a manager there was great. Wish I could remember his name. He has a solid beard and worked labor day weekend. Shout out to you! Thanks for the great food!

Review №7

Great food, everyone seemed happy with their dish. I tried several and wasn't disappointed. Good service too. This is a very small location, and it was a little tight feeling. This location had better food than the Grand Ledge location, but I wish it had the room.

Review №8

Food was excellent and staff very friendly and did an amazing job waiting on our family !

Review №9

As always, great food and great service. Best Margaritas ️

Tried to order takeout at 6:30 pm on a Wednesday, phone rang out 7 times. I ordered takeout 2 weeks ago around the same time, same day. really confused

Review №33

Food was great! This is my new go-to for mexican food!

Review №34

Great foodneed a little more organization

Review №35

Their bacon wrapped shrimp is amazing!

Review №36

Good restraunt withnfilling food. Clean bathroom. Bright tables give a festive feel. lots of seating area. Nachos diveres free of charge to your table with mild salsa, you can ask for a spicier salsa that attacks the back of the throat. I got the #7 dinner special which was 2 tacos, mexican rice, and refried beans...which was pretty good very filling...tacos are authentic mexican tacos with onion and cilantro...had to ask for lime. Drinks are pepsi products with free refills. Staff is responsive to your needs.

Review №37

They still do take out (April 2020), and it's still delicious

Review №38

The food was hot, the service not so hot.

Review №39

Delicious food friendly staff and fast service

Review №40

Great food. Wonderful service. I am a big guy and I always leave there full.

Review №41

Consistently good. Portions are usually good enough to share with someone else if you don't want to walk away stuffed.

Review №42

Service could be better but food is great!

Review №43

Got the pitcher margarita which was delicious. Food however was below par. Tacos were greasy and fell out at the bottom from the grease. Came out within minutes like it was premade. Come for the drinks, lower your expectations for the food.

Review №44

I am asking for my sister and I. We both ordered the pork enchiladas on feb 10 around 6 pm. Has anyone else made the same order or at least the pork? We have both been sick sense eating it. Vomiting and diarrhea. Please post if anyone became sick on feb 10 2020. Eating the pork. Thank u

Review №45

Skip to bottom for final conclusions-Food was great, chips were served warm an toasted, and had a nice margarita. Only problem I felt was my waiter didn't really try to listen all that much. He seemed in a hurry a lot even though the restaurant was half empty. Everything else was fine however. Interior was really nice and tables were clean as well. If you get a jumbo drink, they're good for two if that's a question (they're huge). My partner, agreed with me as well, with the 3 stars due to customer service. 3 stars in my opinion isn't bad also, just like everything, means around average and even though the food was great, just as the food is served from the restuarant the employees are their as well. Final conclusion: Fast, pretty fair food, and mediocre service. Good for a quick bite for sure.

Review №46

Their food is always good and service is on point. Good job!

Review №51

Just sharing my experience in case it helps someone else, I already tried calling and did not receive much help from the restaurant. I picked up an order of fajitas and a few other things to bring home. I tipped despite ordering to-go because a friend and I ate an appetizer of chips and guac at the restaurant. The food was not cooked evenly. The fajita meat tasted tough like it was cooked too long, and the bell peppers were very al dente, and I found a hair in the sour cream. Though I did not order chips and salsa, someone brought it to the table where we were waiting without asking us. Also the restaurant included more in the to-go bag, and I was charged for it without being told. Whilst normally not a big deal, if it was something I ate to see a charge, I don't eat chips and salsa, so I am finding out later i paid for something I didnt order and do not eat. When I called the restaursnt to advise of my experience and ask on the charges, phone rang unanswered and I had to call again. Finally someone answered. I asked about the 1.50 to-go fee on the receipt as I did not expect it. The person on the phone told me there is a .25 cent fee for a to_go per platter and he said it is specified on the menu. It must not be clearly marked as we looked over the menu before we ordered and did not see it. I suggested telling the customers before an order is placed to be transparent. Then I asked about the charge for chips and salsa. I was told it was not complementary because we did a to-go order and did not dine in. I advised that what he said did not make sense to me, because there were chips and salsa in the to-go bag, and that regardless we did not order it. I said we only asked for chips and guac and we expected to only see a guac charged. He repeated they do not give it to us free because we did not have our dinner at the restaurant. I said that is fine, but we did not order chips and salsa and if it is not free, no one should bring it to the table, without asking us first and should be telling us about the charge before we pay, but the cashier did not tell us. The person said it would be on our receipt before we paid. I said we did not get a receipt until after the food was paid for, so there was no way we would have seen it. The person on the phone hung up on us.

Amazing good. Great service. Fab atmosphere.

Review №53

First time at Cancun Mexican Grill. Our dinner was delicious. Their queso is very good. All of our dinner was delicious!

Review №54

Only gave me half of my order, and complained that I showed up too early for my order when I arrived at the time they told me to.

Review №55

Love the food here. Best around for Mexican cuisine. Cancun fajitas are awesome.

Review №56

Aquaman works here. He's incredibly polite. Try the Is Special!

Review №57

I've been coming here for about three years, great food and margaritas. Customer service has been lacking however. Opening late, closing early. We went to grab dinner at 9 the other day and they said they were closed even though the sign said 10 pm. What a waste of a drive... Now they barely answer their phone even during their slowest times. We don't have these issues at any other Cancun.

Review №58

Nice small place. Staff was great and food was really good. We will go again if we are in the area around lunch or dinner.

Review №59

Excellent meal.

Review №70

Awesome food , friendly people,

Review №71

Great service, reasonable prices, and good taste. One star lower than 5 because taste was not excellent, and salsa ok (one can influence the other). They do have a good vegetarian selection, though limited vegetables (onion, mushroom, green pepper). Decent if you eat meat, limited for vegetarian.

Review №72

Really great place for all Mexican food. The fajita burrito was amazing. Really a cool place to go as well. Right off the freeway.

Review №73

I really like there food and they have the best Mararetas around.

Review №75

Some friends and I went here to celebrate a birthday. I had heard good things about this place and was eager to give it a try. I'm glad I did. The food was flavorful and appealing. I loved the decor which was colourful and reminded me of the restaurants I would frequent with my dad. The server was pleasant and attentive. I look forward to when I'll be able to go again.

Review №76

Employees aren't the friendliest but great food

Review №79

Good food great portions

Review №80

Never been disappointed in the food or drinks, good prices, great service. One of our goto's for dinner out.

Review №81

I ate here last night and had the burrito grande. I don't complain about food ever. But this was not cooked, barely warm and tasted nasty. I kept thinking it was going to improve, and ate about a quarter of it. It tasted like raw vegetables, had no flavor at all. I complained to the waiter and all he said was, “you ate almost half of it”, which I didn't. I left a note on a napkin hoping it would get read but I don't think it did. I will never eat here again. If they cannot listen to their customers to improve their food, it's not worth my time to go back there again.

Review №82

Fast service, food is great. It's mostly busy and has small dine in facility compared to their Grand ledge location. Customer service is excellent compared to the Grand ledge location. Dine in experience and take out have been good always.

Review №83

My husband and I's favorite Mexican place in the Lansing area. We always get the steak tacos and they're good everytime. They give you a lot of steak in each taco and the beans and pepper on the side are great additions to the tacos. I never eat refried beans at a Mexican restaurant but I never pass them up at Cancun. The chips and salsa are really good as well. The salsa has flavor and the chips are always fresh. The service is quick and although the waiters don't really speak to you very much, I don't really mind because the food is good and we have never had any problems with the staff. I highly recommend them, great place to go for Mexican food.

Review №84

The Mexican food is fantastic, I personally think the Grand Ledge food and service is the best

Review №85

Fantastic, authentic Mexican food and cuisine. Great service, very pleasant atmosphere.

Review №86

A great place for a dinner date with my wife.

Review №87

Had a musty smell. Waiter wasnt very polite. They left a nasty hand mitten at my table.

Review №88

The tacos are amazing

Review №89

Good food, excellent service.

Review №90

Good food and cozy atmosphere..nice place to take your family and or friends. I ordered the enchilada supreme and I altered it, so instead of getting what that particular menu item offered,which was one of the enchiladas was chicken... I changed it to 2 beef and 2 cheese..And that in my opinion is a plus. I have been to restaurants that do not allow that. And the server was very accommodating and fast.

Review №91

Decent food for decent prices. Good wait staff. I usually just eat lunch there so can't speak for dinner experience

Review №92

Cancun is my favorite Mexican restaurant! The servers are polite and the food and drinks are too good! The atmosphere is upbeat and it's always packed!

Review №93

Food was good, but I accidentally left a book there and when I came back a couple of hours later for it they told me they threw it away when they cleared the table. Since the book was part of a set of language books, I will have to repurchase for $170. Thanks for the great customer service.

Review №94

Good food. Friendly atmosphere

The food is great, but I would consider some ear protection the next time I go. The music was a little too loud! Just came in for afternoon bite to eat, not a fiestas.
