This is by far my favorite restaurant for Mexican food. The food, service, the price and atmosphere can't be beat. You won't be disappointed. The margaritas are great too!

Everything about our meal was awesome. The food was great and so were the drinks! Portions were generous. Our waitress was sweet and did a good job. We'll be back!

A short wait to be seated, but great food, prices and service at El Tucan! And Margueritas Too! Very friendly atmosphere, but it is a small restaurant, I'd give it five stars!

I love this place ! Family owned and operated. The food was very fresh and reasonably priced. They have many different selections on Magaritas and sizes. The atmosphere was relaxed and restaurant was very clean. I will be back .

This is not your Tex Mex or authentic Mexican food but it is the best for American Mexican food. Great atmosphere, good lunch specials, and a pitcher of your favorite mexican drink for only $15.00. Cannot beat the food anywhere in the area
