One of the best things about Mexico is its people, who are warm, fun-loving, welcoming and focused on giving quality service to visitors. Combine this with delicious food and cheerful Mexican decorations and you have . . . Mextreme restaurant in Cancun.
Mextreme is a family-friendly, colorful, open-air restaurant located in Plaza Zocalo at kilometer 9 of Kukulcan Boulevard, in the heart of Cancun’s Party Zone. This lively restaurant offers “110% Mexican flavor,” and their mission is "to make sure all of our customers have a great, high-quality experience in a Mexican party atmosphere."
Mextreme’s extensive lunch and dinner menu includes salads, soups, fajitas, burritos, chimichangas, a Mexteme hamburger, tacos, enchiladas, fish, shrimp, beef and chicken, quesadillas, nachos, desserts and more, plus fresh salsas, guacamole and tortillas.
The menu includes a “Vegetarian Corner," too. Mextreme even serves breakfast and offers fresh mixed juices. Prices here are reasonable.

Some of Mextreme’s most popular items are their parrillas, which are platters served with a variety of taco fillings (Mexican, mixed or seafood) that are brought to your table accompanied by tortillas, guacamole and salsa. Beware, the menu says these meals are for two people, but they can feed more like three or four.
If you’re in the mood for a margarita, Mextreme offers virtually any flavor you can imagine, like mango, tamarind, strawberry, pineapple and more.
It’s the special touches and surprises that take Mextreme to the next level. Don’t step foot near this place if you are a party pooper or don’t have a good sense of humor. Don’t expect to have a quiet dinner: the music is loud and the waiters are cheerful and have plenty of tricks and pranks up their sleeves, from making guacamole or banana flambé right at your table to stacking your cocktails high on their heads and dancing while they deliver them to your table.
They’ll probably put sombreros on you and take a picture with your camera. It's so refreshing since most places try to sell you the photos that they take.

The restaurant features all different types of entertainment. There may be gentlemen playing the marimba, a Michael Jackson impersonator might stop by or the waiters may grab a few customers for some impromptu Mexican dancing. Managers and waiters may whip up a balloon flower for you or do magic tricks at your table.
Mextreme can accommodate large groups or host events like a wedding reception.
Enjoy a fun meal at Mextreme during your Cancun vacation.
