It was good Spanish food nothing extra. Interior resembles culture. Music was extremely loud. Pina colada was extremely sweet. Bathrooms need to be better kept. But other than that it would be a good go to restaurant late night as they are open late.

Delicious guacamole with terrific chips. The chorizo appetizer was also well prepared, grilled perfectly. Chicken enchiladas were a bit on the dry side, even with sauce and sour cream on top; I prefer moister enchiladas. But still acceptable. The only major negative was an extremely vocal squealing child at the next table, which went on and on throughout most of our meal. At some point, restaurant staff should have asked this family to quiet their kid down. I’m assuming this doesn’t happen every night, but it was very unpleasant. Otherwise, this seems like a fine, dependable neighborhood Mexican restaurant and I’ll try it again.

This was a nice little Mexican restaurant near Times Square. Portions were surprisingly large and the food was quite good. I had the shrimp quesadilla and my fiancé had a steak burrito. The best part, however, was the fried ice cream. Neither of us had ever had it before, but gave it a try and inhaled it. Absolutely delicious! Service was slow, but I’m beginning to think that is typical in NYC.

Picked this place because of the Happy Hour drinks specials. Could not get the Happy Hour specials at the table. Margaritas were over double the price at a table than the bar. It was extremely loud. Food was edible, but nothing special. Honestly, Chipotle has better Mexican food. Would only come back if it was to just go to the bar for $5 margaritas during Happy Hour.

The $13 frozen drinks weren't frozen at all. Food was good, but way overpriced. Service was lacking to say the least.

Absolutely incredible. The staff was so sweet and accommodating. It was my brothers birthday and they turned off the restaurant music to play happy birthday in Spanish and had a giant candle almost like a sparkler!

We went in after a Broadway show just because it was really close to the theatre , for an early dinner at about 5 PM . The place was almost empty when we've got there but getting busier towards the end of our meal . The food was OK , but nothing to write home about it ( compared to other Mexican restaurants that I've visited in the City ) . Not so cheap for what it was . The place was very cold and drafty , it seemed that the wind was blowing every time someone was opening the front door ( and we weren't even seated by the door , but quite in the back , by the wall !! ) . I saw some other customer ( a Bachelorette party ! ) even keeping the coats on during dinner ! I won't visit this place again .

We had previously eaten twice in Cancun restaurant and it was always a good experience. We decided to bring our visiting family to eat some good mexican food. The waiter immediately saw that we were not american (although I live in NYC) and did not offer tap water, only bottled water (that will cost us $9 per bottle later) until I realized what he was trying to do (take advantage of tourist people). On top of that, he brought some guacamole (which we though was complementary and ended up not being the case) to even take more advantage of us. We had the lunch menu in which complimentary sangria is always offered but he never offer it. Thanks God the food was good because the service (I will say it in spanish, so the waiter will understand):DEJA MUCHO QUE DESEAR.

Cancun's food was good , but a little pricey. We are from out of town and are used to Mexican restaurants having free chips and salsa and free refills on soft drinks. This is not the case at Cancun and we felt a little nickel and dimed throughout the meal. The noise level was extremely loud.

A group of us, seven people who use to work together, always like to get to gete once a year to celebrate our birthdays. We remembered Cancun's. We enjoyed the guacole and chips. We ordered both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks such as coconut and mango margarita and a strawberry margarita mix with no alcohol. The tradition Mexican food was good such as tacos, beef chimichanga, carne asado (marinated steak), rice and beans and tostones. Some of us were watching our weight so the restauranted accomodated with 2 people wanted grill salmon. They prepared it with a garlic sauce. The side dish that comes with they meal differ. I had the carne asado and chose the tostones. They were fried just right and the steak was huge. The other person got the side of black beans and rice. One other person got the red beans and rice and that was good too.
The décor of the restaurant was nice. We had a big round table so the seven of us could here each other talk. We did not have room for the desserts however, I had gone to Cancun's for lunch and was able to fit in a dessert. The brownie dessert was very delicious. And my lunch special of chicken chimichanga was really big and covered with melted cheese and sauce.

The service was great. It was a friendly staff that answered any questions we had. They keep refilling our water which was terrific. Lastly, we wanted a group photo to remember our evening and our waiter obliged. I would recommend Cancun's for any celebration or lunch if you are in the area.
