“Great tacos and such”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

For me Los trompos is just one of the best taquerías in town, they have really good and consistent service and their downtown location is pretty convenient, overall it's just one of my favorite places for tacos!

“Musica en vivo”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Of the Centro restaurants this place has the best band. They have live music Thursday to Saturday at 8 PM (possibly other times as well). Band is inside - people are ouside on the crowded street. Great people watching!

“This Gringa Loved That Gringa!”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

My first visit I was steered upstairs as the place was crowded, but had a good feel to it. I started off with a gringa, pastor on a flour tortilla with cheese. Wowza! The pastor itself was out of this world tasty, authentic, grilled perfectly, and served with pina. Good sauces and the guac and pico were fresh and wonderful. The fish taco's were also very good. I couldn't get enough of the pastor. There were many mexicans enjoying themselves there and that's a sure good sign. I didn't see too many tourists during my three visits. Service was very good and the washrooms neat and clean. They put tables out on the street on the weekend nights. This was a great find and right across from my hotel!!

“better than expected chain restaurant food”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

the Applebees of Merida. chain. wide selection, menus in english, spanish, italian (and perhaps more). we were surprised that the food was reasonably good (better than expected at a chain)

fajitas and tacos were good. pizza looked good too (thin crust style). noisy and there was a live band saturday night. queso fundido was nothing special (mushrooms were canned). didn't try their desserts. they take credit cards (and you can add tip to the credit card if you ask them -- and tell them how much to add - before you hand them the card)

indoor and outdoor seating.

prices a bit high, but is right in the center of Touristville, just a few blocks from the main square.

“Lively restaurent with good food”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

The Los Trompos is part of a chain of restaurants; it is well located near the main squire. The food is of a good quality, I had an extremely well cooked fajita, portions are of a very substantial size and prices are reasonable. Service was pleasant and efficient. The restaurant has a decent atmosphere; the night I attended there was live music.
