Cancun's Best Take-Out Restaurants: Pizza, Chinese, Sushi, Tacos and More

One thing's for sure, when you are on vacation you don't want to worry about preparing meals. You might not even want to dress up to dine in a fancy restaurant. Cancun's eateries offer food from all over the globe; Argentina, Italy, India, Japan, China. and of course, Mexico. You don't necessarily have to dine in a restaurant to enjoy some of Cancun's best fare.

Los de Pescado serves the very best fish tacos in the city, and they're so cheap! Maybe you are in the mood for a quick and delicious sandwich. The baguettes from Ty-Coz are unbeatable. You'll probably end up eating there more than once during your stay. The Surfin Burrito serves huge portions of delicious jerk chicken, hot wings, shrimp & chips and much more. If it's Asian your craving, try Hong Kong for Chinese or Sushi Go or Sushi Ken for Japanese. For Vegetarians and Vegans, Vegan Planet and Natura won't disappoint. Instead of ordering pizza from an international chain, stop by Padrino's Pizza Express for take out. Fish Fritanga has a to-go counter for seafood tacos, burritos and quesadillas.

If you want a delicious but casual meal, leave your swimsuit and flip-flops on and order take out or delivery from one of these Cancun take out restaurants.
