Fodor's Expert Review Eladio's

$ Mérida Mexican

Part bar, part restaurant, and part theater, this lively venue is often crammed with locals. There's an ample dance floor and a free, supervised children's play area—you can also buy ceramic figures for them to paint while you dance. The full menu includes tasty Yucatecan dishes like papadzules (hard-boiled eggs wrapped in warm tortillas and covered with a thick pumpkin-seed sauce). Free appetizers, which are actually just smaller portions of the dishes on the menu, come with your beer. From 2 to 6:30 pm you'll hear live salsa, cumbia, and other Latino tunes. The attached sports bar offers 2-for-1 beers Monday through Friday. At 7:30 most families disappear, and singles and couples arrive to watch whatever football or boxing match is on TV. This place is known to get lively, loud, and hot.
