Great snack or meal if you get a few. Very very cheap and not as unhealthy as some fast food options! Not the fastest of fast food restaurants but they are all made fresh so worth the wait! Highly recommend the meat or chicken with...More

This little place is awesome. I used to come in here and order 3 Carnita Mole Gorditas every day. They only cost 13.50 Pesos each and were very tasty. The young women work very hard, kneading the dough and making gorditas all day, so give...More

The restaurants around the Plaza are a bit pricy, so this place is a good option for a quick meal if you're not looking for anything too fancy, also a good chance to try something local and different. I tried 4 different flavours and they...More

This place sells stuffed tortilla pockets. It has a fast food feel, food comes quickly, and the seating area is nothing to write home about. It's super convenient. I tried a variety of gorditas, bean and cheese, mushroom (champinion), mole (really great!), and chicken/pork with...More

I have lived in Merida for work and took my American relatives there several times. They loved it! Good food!

The gorditas were good but nothing special. They were cheap and for about 3 dollars you can get full. It is right on a corner of the main square. Overall, they tasted ok and were convenient.
