  1. Definitely one of our go-to restaurants. Never a bad experience. 😊
  2. Arjay, Check out Purely CBD. www.purelycbdmexico.com They sell a great product that is not $3500, but $1400 MXN & they ship from La Paz.
  3. I was in Ilox last week & told it would be 3-5 months. And, I have their fiber on my street & their distribution box on a pole outside my house. Glad I only prepaid 1 month. Ilox is like every other utility in Mexico. Customer service is a very low priority.
  4. Looks like I have my great 4G service back again.
  5. I've noticed over the last few days very poor Tel Cel signal on San Luis in Riberas. I've always very good service until recently. Always 4G(LTE). This sucks.
  6. Question re:driving out of the country at Nogales, MX with a permanente. Is immigration at KM 21. or, are they right at the border where Aduana is? Would like to check out of the country legally so there are no issues when returning. Gracias.
  7. 10 of us had dinner at Tabarka last night. In one word......dismal. Reservations were for 6 PM. So, not late.We were told before putting in our orders there was no chicken and only one piece of Dorado. About 10-15 mins. after putting in our orders, we were told there was no pasta, after ordering 3 pasta dishes. While ordering we were told that the paella and risotto were for a minimum of 2 people at $125 each. At the bottom of the menu it does tell you that in quite small print. So, some of us did order the paella, which was fairly good. Two people had the risotto, which was horrible. More like a fish soup. Don't think they even used arborio rice. They say to allow 30 mins. for the paella. But, it was more like an hour. Two people had the sea bass that was pretty good. Two of us ordered calamari appies at the same time. One arrived fairly quick. The other arrived about 30 mins. later. Both were not good. Very rubbery. One of our party ordered a steak, which was pretty good. But he was finished his meal long before any of the rest of us rec'd our orders. Needless to say, most of us will not be going back. We used to go to Tabarka when they were on the west side of Ajijic. And, always had a great meal. We did not see David last night. So, assume he was not there. If they keep this up, they'll be closed up like so many other restaurants have done Lakeside. Consistency is the key.
  8. Sorry, I should have specified engine oil. Don't think they'd want that. Thanks just the same.
  9. Definitely Ron Young. A little more expensive. But worth the price. He's the only "mechanic" that could adjust the carburetor on our Vocho.
  10. Does anyone know where I can dispose of used engine oil? Thanks.
  11. Update May.27, 2017....Just had my car done in Chapala. Cost is now $400. It is a joke, of course. All they do is stick a sniffer in the tailpipe & voila, you pass. They don't even check to see if your CHECK ENGINE LIGHT is on. IMHO, it's just a money grab. But, better than being hassled by the local cops.

  13. We just had Armondo do some painting for us. WOW!!! Clean & tidy. Very professional. We highly recommend him. 331-447-2451.
  14. I was just at Walmart & noticed the Bancomer ATM is GONE. Anyone know anything about it?
  15. Thanks CG. Gualberto & his father, Carlos just left here after doing a minor repair on our DW(plugged inlet filter) Very professional & obviously knew what they were doing. Would highly recommend them.
  16. My wife & I just had a wonderful dinner at El Fogon. I, the mahi-mahi fish & chips. Her the chamorro(pork shank). Both were great. The chamorro is probably enough for 2 people to make tacos out of. The fish & chips were 10 times better than the ones from that other restaurant on the west side, not far from Roberto's. We will definitely go back. They deserve to be given a chance.
  17. Not sure I'd be willing to take the chance. I think we all know what the consequences might be.
  18. Another problem that most RP's are not aware of or are ignoring is that a foreign plated vehicle driven by a person with a RP is NOT insured. Don't fool yourselves people. Be very careful driving around here if you are a part of that group.

    Ajijic Tango

    We also, will not be returning to Tango. The quality has definitely gone down while prices go up. No more for us. Hopefully the owner reads these posts & changes his attitude.The ex-pats DO matter.
  20. We visited Armando's the other night after not eating there for quite awhile. As usual, our experience was wonderful. As far as I'm concerned his steaks & caesar salad are the best in town. Not to mention his wonderful desserts. I think a lot of us forget about the truly great eating establishments lakeside. If you've never been there, give him a try. Wonderful food & great service with everything prepared table-side. https://www.google.com.mx/maps/place/Armando's+Hideaway/@20.3005397,-103.2730528,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x675b1cf175232350!8m2!3d20.3005397!4d-103.2730528

    Media Luna

    Gaby and her mother, Anna do a great job. Sandwiches & salads are excellent.
  22. Had a steak at Tango last night. Doubt that I'll go back. Had to send my veggies back because they were cold. Hate their so-called mashed potatoes. And, very expensive. I guess the Tapatios will eat anything. Very underwhelming.
  23. I think that all of us that live here and have been to many of the restaurants have very low expectations.
