Cancun has a WIDE variety of great restaurants to choose from, and I do not have to travel to the Hotel Zone if I don't want. Due to the large expat population residing in Cancun we have a lot of international places to choose from that are quite authentic in taste. YAY! Especially when it comes to your basic meat and potatoes!!
John Gray's restaurant here in Cancun is a real gem. It is located in el centro, and happens to be walking distance from my home. Can you say BONUS!!!
The menu at John Gray's has really changed since the first time I dined there. Apparently, they are trying to make it more "economical". However, you are not losing quality and taste for this change. This couldn't make me happier as with their new menu, and prices hubby and I vow to eat there a couple times a week. LOL.
They are open for breakfast at 7 am, and open late during the week and on Saturdays.
Breakfast menu ranges in price from 50 pesos to 75 mxn, and includes a coffee. I highly recommend their chiliquilles....to die for. Hubby loooves their huevos rancheros.
Lunch menu ranges from 65 pesos for their hand made chicken tenders and fries, to 95 for their hamburgers. Heck, healthier and cheaper than McDonalds. Say it again, BONUS!!!
Dinner ranges in price entirely as you can choose from the lunch menu, and the dinner menu. The most expensive item on the menu is their Filet Mignon at 285 pesos for the large cut, and 195 for the smaller. It is to die for delicious.
All in all, the restaurant is amazing. They recently built an outdoor patio to enjoy in the evenings for drinks with friends, and the place reminds me of "home". I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Cancun, and or living here.
