Tacun is a wonderful quick service eatery. We usually visit around lunch time in between beach visits. Their tacos and burritos are really great and the service is always great.

Delicious food, large portions, great value at a casual spot along the hotel zone. They serve breakfast through dinner, some of the best Mexican food we had at definitely the best price. Worth a visit or 2!

Had a lunch here consisting of burritos, they were very large, bigger than expected. Also given chips and salsa on the house, chips refreshed when empty. After a recommendation from the staff, we also had guacamole and pico de gallo, which were made freshly in...full view, they were lovely, although this added an extra 200mxn to the bill, which is a bit steep. Anybody thinking they will be getting a very cheap meal will be surprised, prices are on a par with the other lower priced restaurants in the area. Definitely worth a visit.More

Years ago this was the place for good local food. Not anymore. We went for breakfast and it was horrible. Watered down coffee, over cooked eggs and a water- 30 USD! The sauces on the table were obviously days old because they crusted at the...edges- and it was clear someone else was eating them. Horrible. Do not goMore

A small taqueria with good food and great mango margaritas in the hotel zone. The tacos al pastor with grilled pineapple, guacamole and chips were delicious. We went there 3 evenings in a row.

This is a beautiful little sidewalk cafe right on Kukulcan Blvd. While the area leaves a little to be desired, the food makes up for the lack of ambiance in the area. The food is outstanding, and the portions are plentiful. Beware of the sauces;...they are HOT for most people. One of the surprising things about this place in September when all of the baby turtles are hatching out on the beach some of them manage to find their way into the cafe. The employees keep a box there and gather the few turtles that wander in and at the end of the evening they go out to the beach and release them into the ocean. We go there every year when we are in Cancun. No rush, take your time, enjoy the quaintness of this beautiful little place, and say hi to the broken leg donkey.More

The service is really bad. No explanation on the menu and he was disappointed that we just ordered tacos and nothing else. While he served us, he asked us to stand up to pick up our drinks in the fridge…. When he was time of...the check, he requested for the tips! Apart from that, the food isn’t really good. We got a diarrhea when coming home… You can find better food somewhere else more local and more tasty.More

Just as good as I remembered it from our visit back in 2017! The prices are higher (as are pretty much all restaurants in Cancun these days), but the portions are huge, the quality is good, and the service is fast and friendly. My go-to...are the chicken nachos, though I did do a combo with steak and chicken on my second visit of this trip! N gets the shrimp burrito and loved it the first night, but wants to have a little less cheese and a bit more beans & rice the next time we come. (Soooo much tasty shrimp - don’t change that!!) The margaritas are perfect - especially if you spring the extra 20 pesos for the Cadillac margarita! Can’t wait to come back on my next visit to Cancun.More

This place is the real deal. We came with friends for Spring Break as an entry for them to begin to experience Mexico. We wanted to show them some authentic cuisine which can be hard in the tourist areas. Tacun did not disppoint. Great food...at a very reasonable price. Sopas were awesome as well as the chilaquiles -- just like Abuela makes for our family! We ate there several times for both dinner and breakfast. Cash only but won't break your bank (ATM across the street)More

The food was amazing!! We started with some chips and spicy salsas. My boyfriend and I both got tacos - he got chorizo and I got beef! Both were soo good! The food was so fresh and delicious and I wish I could eat it...for every meal! The one sauce was so good that I asked the owner to bottle some up so I could take it home. He put it in an old water bottle and I gave him $10 USD for it! WORTH IT! It might be hard to miss at first because it’s this tiny little building on the side of the road. It was only outdoor seating (that was covered) and cash only! It’s located in the hotel zone so if you can go it is definitely worth a visit!!!More
