A lo Mero Mero is our family's favorite restaurant in Loja. The restaurant is very clean, the service is excellent, and the food is tasty and delicious. There are plenty of vegetarian options. You can also ask that the vegetarian options have soy meat as well. Some of the entrées are a bit on the expensive side for Ecuador ($7.00),... More

Yum! Very well priced, good Mexican food. It's a little family run place, and so good. We went twice, and on the second trip ordered way too much because it was so delicious. The people running it are friendly as well. It is frequented by locals, always a good sign.

Stopped for a late lunch. Ordered Tacos and burritos. Real Mexican tacos are served on Corn Tortillas, not on Flour tortillas! It's difficult to find authentic Mexican food in Loja. Better to stick to local food and avoid disappointment.

This place has been a well-known institution for quite some time in Loja. They serve the only realistic Mexican fare in the area. There are also many dishes with vegetarian options (not easy to find in Loja). The customer service is good and the food is very good.

A quaint Mexican atmosphere restaurant serving burritos, tacos, quesidillas, and enchiladas. Entres are $ 3 to $ 7. Family run restaurant with good service and food. Remember in Ecuador seasoning is used sparingly - so if looking for more authentic Mexican flavours request " picante "

It was nice to have something beyond the normal Ecuadorian fare. The enchiladas were pretty good, but not great. They don't use a lot of peppery spices in Ecuador. Not genuine Mexican food, but then again I am in b Ecuador

We met a Lojano friend who suggested A lo Mere Mero. The menu had a blend of traditional Mexican and Lojano entrees. I recommend you come hungry. I had a beef & chicken burrito. It was tasty and filling. My wife had their mixed chicken taco that she enjoyed. Our Lojano friend had veggie burrito which was one of their... More
