MÉRIDA, YUCATÁN – After more than a year of successful operation in Montes de Amé, Canada Burger has opened a second location in Mérida, this time in Pensiones, next to Wal-Mart Plaza Dorada. This one is a little different from the original, since it is a restaurant, rather than a food cart, and features indoor and outdoor seating, air-conditioning, Canadian music, and plenty of parking. What hasn’t changed however is the food – the same great menu of made fresh to order Canadian style burgers, fries, and poutine is on offer at the new restaurant along with Canada Burger’s friendly service and great value.


As in Montes de Amé, you can order your food online at the Pensiones location, and it will be ready for you to collect at your specified pick-up time. To take advantage of this service, just visit before heading out.

Since it’s located right next door to Wal-Mart, it’s a great option for dinner before or after doing your shopping there, or at Plaza Dorada.


Currently the Pensiones location is open from Monday to Saturday, 7.00pm to midnight; expanded opening hours will be coming soon, as will home delivery from this location.


Canada Burger is now serving desserts; large soft chewy chocolate chip cookies, as well as “Blondies” (white chocolate brownies, topped with maple frosting, available in half or full size) are on offer at both locations!
