We went for dinner on a Sunday night during MeridaFest. They had Calle 60 blocked off and the restaurants all had seating out in the street. It was nice as the temperature has been over 30 degrees each day. Los Trompos is a chain restaurant but the food doesn't taste like it. There was a tremendous selection of regional dishes.... More

The place is just round the corner of Merida Cathedral. It's a place where to grab something quick to eat, nothing very fancy but food is good (especially chicken faijtas), fairly priced and service is ok. All in all a good bargain.

Good, traditional food. Locals eat here. Tacos el pastor was delicious; the el carbon was ok, Pollo w cheese was very tasty. Generous portions. Good find near the square. The AC was barely felt, even with the over head fans running, and it was HOT outside. Not sure if it is an AC problem or what. Overall, this place is... More

The menu was decently varied, the portions generous, and the service very good. I had a pork belly torta and the wife had a ke-burro. Both were excellent and a welcome find after a somewhat underwhelming first night's dinner at La Chaya Maya the night before.

The staff was awesome! The tacos al pastor were ok. Strawberry cheesecake was delish and so was the guacamole!

We stopped in here just to cool off, have a quick drink and use the bathroom (which was upstairs). The fruit drinks were good and inexpensive. The menu looked like it had a lot of choices. I will try this restaurant again next visit

We had been told Los Trompos was a great option for dinner. The first time we drove by we were a little put off as it appears to be a fast food joint. However, though the service is quick, this is not your average "fast food". Each of the dishes we experienced was delicious and flavorful. Service was quick and... More

If you love casual Mexican food, this is the place to eat. Recommended to us by a very helpful tourist agent on the Plaza Grande. Great tacos and burritos. The meat has wonderful flavour. A filling, inexpensive lunch. Fast, good service. Noisy, busy, Mexican atmosphere. Good value.

Thank Yvette D
