Cancun

705 S. Lewis Ave., Tulsa, OK - (918) 583-8089

"Bienvenutos a Cancun" reads the sign on a cooler full of beer you see the moment you enter this neighborhood Mexican restaurant. It is indeed a welcoming little place with a handful of tables, those along the front window offering a view of the bumpers of cars in the parking lot. Although I speak little Spanish and the staff isn't too good at English, it was easy to order a super burrito stuffed with carnitas (shredded pork), rice and beans, smothered with shredded cheese and warm salsa and decorated with dabs of sour cream and guacamole. It's a fine burrito, the savory roast pork packing heaps of flavor. I also relished a glass of horchata, the cool sweet rice beverage that is so refreshing with spicy food, as well as a bottle of Jarritos brand mandarin orange soda – also an excellent palate refresher.

Tacos are available filled with a wide range of ingredients from spicy pork to tongue, cheek meat, tripe, fish, chicken and goat. Other menu highlights include a wide array of enchiladas, camarones a la diabla (hot and spicy shrimp) and camarones al tequila.

Note: Cancun is closed Wednesdays.

Cancun offers a wide variety of enchilada combo dinners.  From left to right, that is the shredded beef, the sour cream chicken and the especially good, heavily lime-flavored chile verde chicken.

A Cancun meal begins with crisp tortilla chips and lip-tingling hot salsa.

Horchata is Mexican rice milk. It is sweet and refreshing.

Cancun was a welcoming place, although it has all sorts of rules. The menu says, 'No Loitering. You Must Order.' It also advises, 'No Sharing Allowed. You Must Order' and 'All Extra Will Cost Extra.'

Several flavors of Mexican soda are available to drink for those who don't prefer beer with their meal. This mandarin orange was bright and bubbly -- a fine companion for high-spiced food.
