Overall reasonably priced menu compared to other Mexican restaurants in the area. Portions are a little smaller and you don't get as much cheese but you save money. Outdoor seating available with a nice view of Lake Chatuge.

El Cancun Mexican restaurant was close to the Ridges Resort and the food was very good. They had a large menu to choose from and you had the option of eating inside or outside.
