Cancun Mexican Grill
The scent of onions and chiles wafts through the restaurant as Maria Vera highlights a few of the restaurant's most popular items. "The molcajete is the most fun and so good," she says. A dinner specialty, it's served steaming hot out of the oven in a handmade stone bowl from Mexico filled with steak, chicken, shrimp, jalapenos, green peppers, and chorizo sausage. It's $14.99, and no, you can't keep the bowl!
The menu offers numerous Mexican combination dinners for just under $8, plenty of a la carte items, and an extremely popular mango margarita ($5-$9.99). Lunch specials range in price from $4.99 to $7.95. The children's menu offers small versions of Mexican classics like tacos and burritos as well as hot dogs, cheeseburgers and chicken tenders for less adventurous little ones. Carryout orders are welcome.
