El Tucan first opened on March 14, 1994 on North Courtney Parkway in Merritt Island, Florida. It started with just 12 employees, half of which were family. After 10 successful years El Tucan moved to its current location on North Sykes Creek Parkway. We moved to our new location where we have been open for 16 years. Through out the years we open our doors for many people for our local residents as well as returning guests from far away. Being a family owned restaurant, we consider everyone family, from our staff who has been with us for years to our first time customers.
Our Mission at El Tucan is to be recognized within our community as family-run, family-friendly restaurant where everything is homemade from our chips to sangria.
