I just love the funny view of a parking lot patio. They seriously have the best queso dip in town and the margaritas are off the charts!! If he's available, ask for Edwin.. he's the best bartender and server. The veggie fajitas are incredible too!

So my friends and I like to go here because the food is actually good. But every single time the service is TERRIBLE. Tonight for example, we were completely ignored, it took them 15 minutes to DECIDE who would be our server. We finally ordered...More

First time there. Enjoyed the food. Clean restaurant but the service was lacking. Food was delivered quickly but after that we did not see our waiter. Was hard to get refills for our drinks. Would go back but would probably request a different server.

We drove through and brought home greens and chicke. As good as your grandma's cooking. It is a little crowded for lunch so come early.

A restaurant with quality food in South Knoxville is a welcome thing, but sadly Cancun can't pair it's quality food with quality service. Servers here are unusually rude and can sometimes be seen quarreling with other employees. If you catch them on a good day...More

Had the cancun fajitas. The food was fresh, clean and an extremely large portion. Prices are very fair. Service was ok. A little slow, but I wasn't in any rush. Better than any of the local franchise spots around town.

This was better than I thought it would. Large portions so order accordingly. I don't live near here so I couldn't take home the extras. I'll be back.
