Delicious

Not the fanciest nor the most modern place to eat in town yet the taste of their food is delicious and the prices are very reasonable!

El Trapiche does typical Mexican fare and local specialties at decent prices with great home made taste. You will notice that most tourists and tour groups go to the more expensive place just a block away while most locals will come here.

This is something I would write Guy Fieri from the Food Network to go visit and film a Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives. Small quaint local, friendly staff, good food and extremely cheap prices.

Really enjoyed our meal here. We had beef fajitas and cochinita pibil. Both delicious. Friendly staff, good price. We'll probably be back to try more of the menu!

enjoyed this home cooked meal feeling and the friendly staff. I just had chicken soup due to an upset stomach, but my husband ate a traditional meal and enjoyed it a lot. According to other patrons and travelers. A great place for lunch with a set menu but different choices for only 50 pesos!

I have been eating at Trapiche three times a week for years. I always choose one of four or five lunch specials. It's hearty yucatecan food - Occasionally their food is a little bland, but overall they deliver a good meal at a very reasonable price - $50 pesos for a soup, main course and a drink. So it's good... More
