It was at the end of 2020 that Okole Maluna closed after 16 years. For a brief stopover, there was an Asian spot on site; now Cancun Mexican Grill & Cantina has come to town.
Everyone loved Okole Maluna, on the corner of Main Street and 7th Street in downtown Windsor, many were happy to be able to move on to their next adventure, but very sad to see them go. This new Mexican spot may be able to heal this wound.
We let you know in December 2021, a year after Okole Maluna closed, that a new Mexican restaurant was on the way to town. They have been in Greeley for many years and also have a location in Fort Collins; they bring a lot of experience and authenticity to Windsor. Unlike Azu Asian, who was at this location from January 2021 to August 2021, I really feel like Cancun will be in Windsor for many years to come.
We heard that Cancun Mexican Grill & Cantina had opened, and I was looking forward to going there and checking it out, since our radio stations are only a block away. They officially opened on June 11, 2022; Stopped in on a busy Thursday night, June 16, 2022.
I honestly thought, because they were so busy, it was their first night when I was there. It was crazy busy, and it’s great.
LOOK INSIDE CANCUN MEXICAN GRILL & CANTINA IN WINDSOR
Just a quick shot of the crowd that was there when I arrived.
I went back the next day to take pictures of Cancun. Where Okole Maluna had plenty of tables, Cancun has tables and booths.
This is one of the two great stands in Cancun.
Speaking of seating, you’ll find that Cancun has outdoor tables as well.
This great photo hangs above the east stand.
A few people were gathered at this stand and when I walked in, one person was enjoying a margarita. They are very tasty.
This fish reminds me of how Okole Maluna had a big aquarium in the back of his restaurant. There are more than a few of these fish in Cancun; they are funny.
There are about six stools at the bar.
I was intrigued by these mugs, so I asked what they were for. It turns out they serve Cantaritos there, a Mexican drink made with grapefruit soda and tequila. They look delicious.
I ordered the flautas. They were very, very good. Welcome to town, Gang.
