  1. Uptight... on several other food / restaurant blogs Robertos Cuban pork dishes have been well liked ,not to mention rick ,Heidi and myself . You post on almost every blog on most of the forums ...the vast majority of which are negative. ..” A bit ago “ ...” wold “....” affect “ ...was this post perhaps written during ..happy hour...again .".....

  2. Dear Carnivore, There’s a lot I can say about your post and experience. First of all I want to apologize for your bad experience, secondly you mentioned being in the food industry yourself and should know that the best thing a customer can do “is let management know of your experience “ your food wasn’t cooked right ? You didn’t like it ? Let them know!! It gives them the opportunity to fix it! Why go behind “doors” and criticize and talk bad about the place when they have no clue there’s an unhappy customer. Good or bad reviews helps us grow. But the most important ones are the one brought up

  3. Land invasion is common in Southern Mexico... I know several cases of both Mexicans and expats who havelost the land they own to the zapatistas, ejidos and others..Buying large amount of land where the locals won small parcels just because you have he money does not seem to be a good idea. In Chiapas at 2h from San Cristobal a cuple of foreigners bought land at the entrance of Tonina and developped a macademia ranch alomg with a guest ranch, they worked the land , employed many locals and helped a lot of people 6 or 7 years later just before the first harvest came in , the zapatistas cam

  4. Let me start with a confession. I'm not living in Ajijic any more. I now live in Queretaro. But I have made a few trips back since moving and this site has been a good way for me to quietly asses any issues like traffic that are going on. But in this case, I feel I need to speak out because I would feel awful if I didn't and someone was made for the worse for it. Three months ago I had COVID. I had a moderate case and did not need hospitalization. But afterwards, I just didn't get better. The fever went away, but he shortness of breathe, (SOB,) fatigue, chest pain, strange symptoms comin

  5. So I'm wondering how someone who has only posted ONE message here.... the one above.... but knew to come onto this Forum an give a great testimonial to this doctor's procedure. A grain of salt comes to mind, but then I'm just skeptical about things like this I guess.

  6. This entire post has become so ridiculous that it's now only best described as bad or drunken humour. In case some of the more self-aggrandizing posters have forgotten....the whole purpose of the forum it to allow restaurant clients to honestly report their good OR bad experiences so that anyone who happens to read the post can make their own decision about patronizing the eatery, OR not. Some of the most recent posts can only be described as drivel and an incredible waste of time for both the poster and reader!

  7. I went for a single stem cell injection in my left hip as my cartilage is almost gone after 51 years of dancing on it. I forget the man's name, but he also comes from GDL and provides this service in Dra. Justina's Clinic. I had an x-ray before the procedure to confirm my suspicions of diminishing cartilage. He told me to wait about 5-6 months and get another x-ray. I did and my cartilage is growing. I can only speak for my experience but I'm grateful I caught it in time while I still had cartilage for the stem cells to initiate re-growth. I did research before choosing this procedure an

  9. This attitude is why so many of us who cannot afford it end up paying for bad meals, overpriced service providers, poor repairs to our vehicles and homes, and yes, substandard medical care. The idea that we should just be silent when any of the above has occurred is ludacris. We owe it to our community to warn them off and we most certainly do NOT owe it to business owners who aren't providing quality to pay and hope they do better next time. Had I read Carnivore's review before going it would have saved me time and money. Their description mirrored our experience to a tee.

  11. You have to wonder why people post wrong information.. and then justify it it by saying “Somebody told me that”. Manix isn’t closed, he’s struggling like many other restaurants here. Wallmart isn’t allowing only one family member in they allow anyone who wears a mask in. Please check your facts before posting.

  13. Many places are rebottling from large containers to small pump type bottles so there is no way to tell what the product is. The sanitizer used at front door of Walmart is very sticky compared to other hand sanitizers. If the virus doesn't get you the hand sanitizer might.

  15. So you are suggesting that all the companies in phase three trials are lying? And they don't employ scientists? And If I believe their reports filed with the CDC, among others I am listening to the wrong people? That's some conspiracy theory..... And at least 2 companies have pledged to sell the vaccine at cost... The others prices are as low as $10 per dose.

  18. There is a couple who are making Thai food for delivery only. It's the best I've had since I've lived here and compares favorably to some of my favorite Thai restaurants from NOB. You have to order in advance. They are open Wed - Sat 1:00 - 7:30. If you want a delivery on Saturday you should probably order Friday. Priscila & Eduardo Phone: 984 139 4977 (you can order on Whatsapp or call - English is spoken). Here is a link Thai Food and More and here is the regular menu. You won't be disappointed. 1.

  21. A friend just returned from New York, flying direct to Mexico City ( to avoid U.S. stops with more CoV contagion) and then here. No food service on the plane. She went through FIVE sanitary checkpoints in Mexico City airport.... mask, temperature check, gel, and health questions. Mexico is taking the threat from entries from other countries quite seriously. And yes, for sure if you are coming from a more actively "contagious" state. Walmart requires temp check, mask, and gel plus is taking head count for entry. One person per family "unit" allowed in. (Not always observed.......) Res

  22. Another interesting side effect seems to be depression, I hear about it from France and I see it in the indigenous communities in Chiapas, It seems that men are more prone to it.. it may be the same thing as the long hauler symptoms, I do not know but the amount of depression and the feel bad and or sick symptoms seems to be on the increase. ii.. I would not take any of the medecine advertise as the "cure " in Mexico on a bet. False and misleading ads are filling the papers in Mexico and the internet on a daily basis.. Lots of snake oils salesmen out there and why people would fall for it is

  23. I suggest that restaurant owners check this website for opinions. I would find it very uncomfortable to discuss my dissastisfaction with the owner of the restaurant. Who would be more aware of the shortcomings of the food and/or service than the owner? The lack of awareness would only be believable if the owner were not directly involved with the day to day operation of his/her business. The owner's post was unconvincing, at least to me.

  24. It is very easy to change a battery, all you need to be careful of is that you get the polarity right, but even if you don’t most vehicles especially newer ones are protected against reverse polarity. If the alternator is easily accessible it’s very easy to change, it would be hard to screw that up. But why bother Auto Zone will change the battery for free, and the cost of labor is so cheap why bother changing an alternator yourself.

  25. As soon as a vaccine is announced and made available, the masses will discard their masks, hug each other, open bars and restaurants, and declare that the virus will be killed. The infection rate will soar, hundreds of thousands will die, and the economy will tank even further; perhaps beyond any hope of recovery. Then, really bad things will happen. 🤯

  30. On September 9th when I first posted it was after receiving a friend's suggestion that we read the prior responses to the post. My wife and I decided to take a look for ourselves. We know very well what a Cuban sandwich is, having been to Cuba, southern Florida and the area around "Nueve Esquinas" in Guadalajara. Further, there are probably at least a dozen authentic Cuban eateries in Guadalajara. We also have our favourite Cuban restaurants in Scottsdale/Phoenix and having been, successfully in the restaurant business for many years we know what service, quality, value and the importance

  32. This plastic membrane that is rigid set along the outside cement or brick wall that is below ground level before backfilling eliminates moisture by allowing it to evaporate and by keepng moisture from the underground wall. The top part of the roll needs to be about 3 inches above ground level so it can breath. We installed it after construction and eliminated our problem (so far).

  33. We have added a side forum on the site with those being treated with the protocol I am using. There was an obvious need to deal with the mental issues as even those who have always been stable and solid are questioning even looking at another day. One of the big problems is the shortness of breath and the natural panic it causes. The panic is good to wake us up if we are choking in our sleep or making us fight harder to not drowned. But when it comes from trying to walk up stairs and happens hour by hour, the overwhelming sense of dread that occurs is awful. That, combined with the shame

  34. Surprised it doesn't include Blumen brand, which is one of the most commonly sold here. The US FDA lists a bunch of Blumen sanitizers as unsafe. Though it's possible the Blumen sold in US wasn't sold here in MX? Quien sabe. The full list is here, Blumen listing shown below. https://www.aarp.org/health/conditions-treatments/info-2020/methanol-hand-sanitizer-recall.html Blumen Advanced Hand Sanitizer Aloe, manufactured by 4E Global (NDC: 60599-013-00, 60599-013-01, 60599-014-00) Blumen Advanced Hand Sanitizer Aloe, with 70% alcohol, manufactured by 4E Global (NDC: 6

  39. So they won't accept a throw away or pre-pay cell which receives the texts over towers? And how will they know if the phone is registered in your name? Does your bank have access to the phone registry of dozens of cell phone companies across the USA? How would they know when they text to a phone number (they use the internet to do that) if the ultimate text is delivered by a cell tower? Some of the major cell companies actually switch your phone to internet reception when you are in range of one of their wifi connections.

  40. LOL...while the water plants on the lake are called lirio here collectively, they each have a real name. Here they are grouped together and called lirio. The majority of water plants on the lake are commonly called water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) and water lettuce ( Pistia stratiotes). Water hyacinth have the purple flowers. Water lettuce does not. They are both common plants used in ornamental water features in the US. The plants currently on the lake are primarily water lettuce and only a small amount of water hyacinth so far that I can tell. We have a layer about 15 ft wide on our lak

  41. STOP "doing some business" where masks are not worn! As for your silly statement about Chapala vs. Ajijic, it is so far off the mark that I would venture you were just flapping your jaws for exercise.
