For as casual as this restaurant is, the food was overpriced, but I liked being able to support the locals. I had the tortilla soup which was phenomenal. Their smoothies were great too! They bring out a variety of salsas and chips as an appetizer which were all really great, you could tell they were homemade and fresh. If you... More

We were so disappointed walking by the touristy spots like outback steak house and bubba gump on our stroll down the hotel zone street UNTIL we stumbled upon Tacun. It was an unassuming spot on the side of the road and it was fantastic!! Auggie (Augustine) the host was so fun and entertaining. We had queso fund ISO with chorizo... More

Wow! My family & I wanted to try authentic food on our vacation in Cancun, & this was the first place we tried. Absolutely delicious! We all got tacos, & they were fantastic! Loved all of the salsas that came out also! I wish I could eat here every day!

We really like coming here whenever we are in Cancun. Real friendly, nice open air place. We have taco's and margarita's. Their pastor taco's are the best we every had and after the first time here we have tried them many other places in Chicago. One big problem...exchange rate on US dollars is terrible. Bring Paso's.

This restaurant was next door to the Flamingo Resort where we stayed. It was open early for breakfast and had outdoor seating. The staff was nice and the food was really good. I had a traditional egg breakfast one day and a chicken burrito the next. Both were great and came with delicious sauces and chips.

We are at Tacún four times during our stay in Cancún. The food is great, it's inexpensive for a tourist town, and the owner is super-friendly. The fish tacos are fantastic, the beer is cold, and when you are here, the world feels a little friendlier. Wow.

Bring pesos, they charge a horrible exchange rate and no credit cards. Just had a few beers 25 percent up charge on exchange rate

Hard to find, is located close to km 10.5 across from the shopping mall. Had dinner on the covered patio. My blackened fish tacos were delicious, not the greasy breaded and deep fried version you find in the US.

We stopped at Tacun based on previous reviews. Glad we did! I had steak fajitas and my husband had the cream corn soup and stuffed chicken breast. We also shared queso and chips. Everything was so good and fresh. The employees were friendly and attentive. Sad we found this our last night in Cancun or we would have definitely returned.... More

We go here at least once per trip. Great tacos at a great price. Place is small and if you blink, you'll miss it! Cash only I believe.
