Fodor's Review

This family restaurant is popular among locals—in fact, many say it's their favorite restaurant in town. It's also one of the most formal places that serves the region's cuisine, but you'll still fit right in if you're wearing jeans. Proprietor Albino Medina is a third-generation chef and restaurant owner in his family. Dishes are prepared with a charcoal stove, like your grandma might have used (if you were from around here). The kitchen standards of cleanliness are

so strict that the restaurant has received recognition from the Secretary of Tourism. Just about everything you'll try is tasty—including the queso relleno (hollowed-out cheese, stuffed with a pork-vegetable mixture) and the cochinita pibil (slow-roasted pork dish)—but you might not want to pass up the cream of chaya soup, since you won't find it in many other restaurants. La Tradición is open from 11am to 6 pm.
