We have had the opportunity of eating at both locations in Merida over the last several years. The one off Prolongacion Montejo is a much larger place and we found the noise to be excessive even when it was almost empty the night we were there!
Our favourite of the two is the much smaller and original restaurant in the west end not far from the new Walmart at the Avenida Canek exit. The actual location is on Merida 2000. Coming from the west on Itzaes, turn right at the Soriana store and travel about one kilometre south. You will pass a large 'knoll' and just past that is the turnaround for La Rueda on the opposite side of the boulevard. In the evening they open between 7 and 7:30 pm. It is a small restaurant so you might want to make a reservation. They only sell beer and wine, no mixed drinks.
Their specialty is Argentinian beef. Two people can easily share the starter salad! The menu is fairly extensive - everything from hamburgers to filets, all exceptionally well prepared to order on the grill. In fact, the hamburgers are outstanding!!! They sometimes have lamb as well.
The wine selection is limited but try the Terrazas de Los Andes at 400 pesos and you won't be disappointed. The mark up is very small compared to the price at Costco! The waiters are attentive but not overly so. We normally have Fidel and he knows what wine we drink the moment we walk in the door!
Yeah, it's a little far from Centro Merida, but worth your time.....treat yourself!
