We stopped at this spot for lunch and were happy with the food, especially the empanadas. I got a burrito de pollo and a queso empanada. The burritos were pretty good and the empanada was the best we had in town. My husband also got a refreshing strawberry smoothie that was mostly water mixed with some fresh fruit. The service was slow and indifferent. My husband felt that the waitress was rude but I will give her the benefit of the doubt and chalk it up to cultural misunderstanding. The price was great and the restaurant is conveniently located on the main street right by the collectivo stop.

We had many great meals in Mexico but this was the best bang for the buck! We had a simple lunch: empenadas and tacos and we loved them both. We loved it so much we came back once more before leaving town.

This colorful small restaurant is incorrectly listed as "La Tuxequitla"--it's actually La Tuxtlequita, centrally located on Avenida Tulum across from the ADO bus terminal. As the name suggests, food from Tuxtla (in western Chiapas) as well as the Yucatan is featured. We came here several times for breakfast (huevos motuleños, delicious!) and light lunches. Don't miss the fine assortment of aguas frescas, fruit drinks, and juices.
