South-of-the-border specialties with a real flair. That’s exactly what you’ll discover when you visit Fiesta Cancun Mexican Restaurant and Cantina in Rahway. Tucked away on Monroe Street, it’s a quick walk from the train station and incredibly convenient to walk to from the town’s bustling arts district. And now with the Union County Performing Arts Center (UCPAC) in full swing, stopping by Fiesta Cancun for lunch or dinner is a real treat before of after the theatre.
Fiesta Cancun has offerings that will please Tex-Mex enthusiasts and many more. Festive, with comfortable seating options, it is a great spot for small groups and families.
We visited on a Saturday evening and met the owner and general manager, Tyrone Knipping. He told us that Fiesta Cancun is already popular with area businesspeople, neighborhood regulars, and families. They offer a kids’ menu, take-out and delivery.
We started our dinner with guacamole and chips. Using the freshest avocados, this popular appetizer is made tableside to your exact liking. For an entrée, the chicken mole is delicious. This authentic family recipe has a rich sauce that blankets moist, tender chicken and it may be the best you’ll ever have. We also tried one of their burrito specialties, the el poblano, a generous, flavorful wrap with chicken or steak, veggies and a fire roasted poblano sauce served with a fresh house salad.
The tacos are sure to please. There are traditional varieties and house specialties you won’t find anywhere else like their Veracruz tacos with blackened tilapia, pineapple salsa and queso fresco. We plan to return soon to sample their flatbreads and the BBQ grill that features mango BBQ ribs.
Save a little room for dessert. Fiesta Cancun offers specialties like homemade flan, and of course, churros and ice cream!
