Simply go there. Nice people with perfect english (canadians), the most delicous burger i have ever eaten, cold beer, delicious and really not virgin magaritas, very relaxed ambience. I have no idea what could have been better.

 Fantastic burgers and super friendly owners
We stumbled across this fun place when trying to escape touts from the horrendous tourist trap that is Mercado 28. Lovely Canadian owners who not only fed us delicious burgers and properly crispy fries, washed down with yum Indio beers, but they also helped us with some great local tips on what to do in the area. Currently loving Isla Mujeres. ..thanks guys!

 By far the best and most relaxing bar in Cancun for our visit!!
Me and my girlfriend were visiting Cancun for two weeks, we dropped by el callejon by chance after visiting mercado 28, we got chatting to the owners Jen and will and ordered our first of many drinks! We spent hours there on our first visit and enjoyed the best fish and chips! We loved the place so much that we returned again for another long night of drinks (the best margaritas we have had) and our favourite tequila we found on our trip! But if there is one thing you have to try while you are there it is the burgers, my girlfriend could not get over how delicious and fresh every ingredient in them was! Do not miss this bar for a drink and good food when visiting Cancun!!!

Ok first of all, the bar is super relaxed with a great atmosphere, and amazing owners! then the food!!! Oh God, the food is premium quality at a great price!!! These burgers are what a real burger should taste, and the nachos are made of real cheese!!! I totally recommend it!!!

 A must visit if your in downtown Cancun at the proper Market 28 not the tourist trap plaza 28.
After the hussle of the market and a pleasant relaxed bar just tucked off the main entrance too market,adjacent to taxis.We went in for for one beer before going back to our complex and stayed for a good while and enjoyed every minute. Lovely landlord and landlady from Canada and full of good advice and tips. Thanks Jen.

My husband and I visited Cancun for a week, decided to go downtown to get away from the hotels and all the tourist traps! We came across this gem of a place and we're glad we did. The drinks were top shelf!! Excellent company and although we didn't try Jen's food we will definitely go back for that - all the way from the UK!! Highly, highly recommended :)

This is great place to spend an afternoon or evening away from the tourist areas. The margaritas are so good because they are made with only natural juices (and six shots of booze). The hamburgers are absolutely delicious. The Canadian owners are friendly and helpful. Very inexpensive.

After being greeted with a flyer at the entrance of market 28, we just couldn't resist trying the Margarita 's.A gem of a place. Music is relaxing and the laid back atmosphere of the place is a must to go. Trust me... after being pestered in the market, it is so good to just unwind. Service is so good, we have decided to eat..... hats off to the owners.... a great place to be

 Great bar to visit!
We went here for a few drinks on a visit to the downtown market whilst on a lads trip to Cancun. We only went in for a quick drink and ended up in there for hours!The owners are absolutely great hosts and the food was great! We had some beef and chicken tacos and they were actually the best we had all trip. Miss Thursday (the mysterious bar lady) made some fantastic cocktails and they have an amazing selection of tequilas, beers and spirits in general, something that can be hard to find even in the big hotels in cancun...The owners really do make an effort to make your experience of their bar a good one and we were gutted we couldn't spend more time there than we did as we discovered the bar late in our trip. Definitely reccommend travellers in cancun to check out this bar you won't be disappointed and will be leaving with a smile on your face!

 Amazing food, amazing atmosphere and amazing owners!!
Practically ate and drank here every day. The staff/owners were very welcoming and the food was the best I tasted in Cancun! The location is great, lovely cooling breeze in a rustic style alleyway hence the name of the bar/restaurant. I highly recommend visiting here to eat and drink! Some of best food I've honestly tasted! 10/10!

This is my favorite place to hang out in Cancun :) Lots of variety on beers, mixed drinks, and the best margarita I've had in a LONG time. Don't hesitate to order food here, either - the chicken sandwich is amazing. The owners are fun to talk to and I enjoy the great mix of music (something for everyone). Even on a hot afternoon, the breeze blowing by the tables in the alley kept me comfortable. The Alley is located along Xel Ha at Mercado 28. Make sure to stop by!

 Best Burger and fries- Delish!
I was craving a good ole fashion burger and fries and we found the place for it. This spot was AH-MAZING! The burger was hot and juicy and full of flavor and I couldn't believe the size of this burger.... The fries were crispy and fresh AND HOME MADE. This was exactly what we were craving. They have a menu with something for everyone-- When in Cancun this is a MUST!

 Awesome Bar! Great Owners! Perfect Environment!
Got lost in the Mercado 28 and stumbled upon this bar. Greeted by the owners and automatically felt comfortable. After being ripped off left and right on $12 watered down Margaritas throughout Cancun, this bar had one of the best Margarita we had tasted for a lot less. Had the nachos...uuhhhmmm...so good. It had more flavor than the one from the resort we were staying. While sipping on Margarita, or drinking good Mexican beer, either inside or outside in the alley, our group talked to the owners about anything or everything. So pleasant. Definitely recommend it.

After being here three years ago we had hoped are little bar was still here. Not only was it still there but just as welcoming and comfortable as ever. You don't feel like you are at bar but at a friends house for drinks. The owners are exactly what you need after an afternoon of bargaining at the market nearby. A true extension of the states and Canada with good conversation ,amazing drinks and the best burger in town. Everyone should make this a destination on their trip to Cancun. We always have a blast here and highly recommend the alley . 10 out of 10..

This is my second year of visiting The Alley bar & grill in Plaza Bonita, Cancun, Mexico. There is always a hockey game on ! I visited at least 4 times a week. The beer was cold & the burgers and food was great.Best Margarita's in Cancun .The clientel was a mix of tourists and Mexicans , many of whom I became friends with. Can't wait to get back to the atmosphere and the constant cooling alley breeze. The owners are a unique and friendly couple from western Canada. Will & Jennifer. Miss them !

The best burgers that we have found in Cancun by far and we have tried places all around town! Fresh meat with great flavor, topped with caramelized onions and cheese and I always add jalapeños! So yummy! We've also enjoyed their chicken sandwiches and poutine, not to mention that there is plenty of ice cold beer too! Would highly recommend when you are in Cancun to check this place out!

 Fantastic margaritas and gorgeous Mexican food!
In a picturesque alley tucked in a corner of Mercado 28, this great little bar and restaurant is run by a lovely couple from Vancouver, Canada. They serve really COLD Dos Equis, freshly made margaritas (not overly sweet and so delicious!) along with tacos, fajitas, and beautiful guacamole and other dips all made from first principles. Nothing pre-made here! The corn salsa is a revelation. If you can't find it, just ask the market stallholders about the bar run by Canadians and they will walk you right to it (give them a little tip for their trouble!). Fantastico!

Great food. Great service. Best margarita in Cancun and the burgers are dynamite. Make sure you get a shot of the smoothest tequila before you leave. Check it out!!

 Fantastic burgers and margs!
Stumbled upon this little gem and will stop back every visit to Cancun. Great food to follow some great shopping.

 Relaxed and Refreshing
This bar is near the Flea Market, where they really pursue you. But this place is laid back and fun, easygoing. Their margaritas were tasty and the home made salsa was excellent. We got to "recover" from our shopping.

 Best oasis in cancun
Found this gem while fumbling through Mercado 28. An incredible hole in the wall bar/cafe run by two great Canadians. It was nice after the intensity of the market to find some expats to balance things out, ask questions about Cancun and just to enjoy a good laugh.The regulars are great too. This is a must if you are in the area.

 Low pressure, cold beer
Escape from the high pressure salesmen in Mercado 28 and enjoy a cold cerveza. Friendly, English speaking owners offering great service and a good selection of drinks

 Solid little bar
Owners are great, drinks & nachos are decent, prices are fine. Nice little spot to get out of the hustle & bustle of the market and chill.

  Great place!
Incredibly friendly service! Wonderful cheese nachos with black beans, green and red peppers, and onions for US $7. My most favorite nachos in recent memory, in fact. A perfect portion for two people to share at an excellent price.I removed one star mainly because they play their music excessively loud, so it's quite hard to have a conversation or feel relaxed, and there's no escape from the audio onslaught. But I would still return for the nachos alone.Their margarita is solid, not quite mind-blowing, but quite good. (My personal pick for best margaritas in the universe is at Vive Sol in Mountain View, California. They may have ruined me!)This place also has their own alleycat, a battle-scarred, heavy-lidded thousand-yard stare, fur speckled with gray, world weary little black feline. After the nachos and the sweet service, he was the third best part of the experience. :-)Thumbs up for El Callejon!
