Everything was fine, the only thing that was not fine was that I found some stuff in my enchiladas that I didn't desire in there. Other than that, it was fine.

Our family moved to Cedar Rapids 1.5 years ago and searched and searched for good Mexican food. We found Cancun 2 by chance and now we never go anywhere else! The chips and salsa is so good... one tip is to ask for the green salsa- it is THE BEST! We have ordered many different dishes there- chimis, tacos, enchiladas,... More

Been coming here for years now!! Best place in town for authentic Mexican food. The service is prompt and friendly. The food is always excellent. No place around can compete that I've found yet

The food was okay. Typical Mexican menu. Had the chimi. One beef one chicken. The server was friendly almost to the annoying point but overall great place.

When we checked into our hotel, we asked for a good place to eat and Cancun 2 was recommended. OMG! I don't think I've ever had a worse meal in my life. I ordered the chille relleno, beef enchilada and beef taco. I'm not sure what the meat was that they used. I took one bite of the enchilada, yuck.... More

This was the weirdest Mexican food I have ever had. I know there are regional cuisines but this was just not anything like I have had before and I have had a lot of Mexican before. Granted I am from the Rocky Mts but please.. The Chili Relleno was filled with meat and covered in cheese (no batter of any... More

Fast and friendly service. I had the steak fajitas and they were excellent. Portions were large and the food was served hot.

I've been coming here for years and it's consistently good. Last week I ate there for dinner. One of my go to dishes is the Polo Monterrey. Two thin chicken breasts smothered in onion and mushrooms. Served with beans and rice. I highly recommend it. Carnitas is another good choice.

One of the best Mexican restaurants--a real find. The food was wonderful and the place was so clean. My waitress told me in heavily accented English that "the lady who goes around to restaurants and says what's wrong eats here with her family." This turned out to be the sanitation public health inspector. You simply cannot get a better recommendation... More

The food is good here, but did have the great flavors of some of the other Mexican Restaurant we have eaten at, the prices are very reasonable, however, I still prefer El Perico in Marion. The staff was very friendly, but it seem to take quite a while to get our order at lunch time.
