Location Description:

Cheen Huaye, which means Only Here in Mayan, offers unique and authentic Mexican cuisine. Marco Velasquez, owner and executive chef, creates succulent dishes such as carne asada a la Yucateca ($17) and pescado Yucatan ($21) that are influenced by his upbringing in the Yucatan peninsula. The restaurant is comfortable, clean, well-lit, and family friendly. The décor consists mainly of Mexican artifacts. Some dishes are a bit pricey, but the lunch specials are a good deal (averaging about $9.50). Delicious desserts such as flan à la mode will satisfy a sweet-tooth. And an assortment of Mexican beers, wines, and margaritas will transport you south of the border.
