    We are not asking smokers to QUIT smoking, just to stop for the 45 minutes or so they will be at an eatery.  I smoked for 20 years (when I was young and stupid), but never had an issue not lighting up for an hour or two for whatever reason.  

    Perhaps if you had read my original post regarding my cigarettes, you would have seen that I said "I'll." leave my cigarettes at home. Smart people know that I'll is a contraction for I will. So fly back to your limb and wait for the next one!

  2. It's kind of sad. I posted about a good experience Heidi and I had to let people know and, to possibly help the restaurant. Unfortunately, there always seems to be vultures sitting on their respective limbs waiting to fly down and attack something! I swore months ago that I would never post on this board again. I guess, during a senior moment, I forgot...I won't make that mistake again! By the way, I don't need an English lesson from someone who obviously can't read! ADIOS!

    The % of smokers v. non-smokers means he will LOSE business because you can't forgo a cig for an hour.  

    I guess you need to learn how to read before commenting. I said I WOULD LEAVE MY CIGARETTES AT HOME! I could use smaller words if that would help!

  4. Went back today and we met a friend for lunch. Heidi and  split a coke, Heidi had a single with fries, I had the double with onion rings, and, Mike had a chili dog, fries, onion rings and a beer. The total charge for the 3 of us was $335. There's another place that serves single, double and triple burgers. I think this is much better at about half the price!

  5. Turn south on street on the east side of Strom Movers parking lot. One block south, turn right on Zaragoza. Go 2 blocks and on the Southwest corner is Beto"s. Six or seven different burgers, hot dogs, chili dogs, onion rings, pulled pork and more. I had the double which reminded me of an In and Out burger. Excellent meat, juicy and, cooked perfectly! Great burger in walking distance from home....I'm happy!

  6. Some friends told us about a place in San Juan Cosala that's carrying Sonora beef. It's about 50 yards past the entrance to the Racquet 

    Club on the mountain side and is called Steak Brothers. We bought 2 rib-eyes and 2 N.Y. Straps. Had the rib eye today and it was excellent. Extremely tender and incredible flavor. WELL worth the drive!

     

     

  7. First time at Pasta Trenta today....definitely NOT the last! Absolutely the VERY BEST Carbonara I've had since coming to Mexico. Service is a bit iffy but, unfortunately, gotten kinda used to that. 2 carbonates, small salad and 2 soft drinks...$353! Excellent meal.

    We kept hearing about the wonderful breakfasts at Nissa's "Bakery" and so when we found ourselves nearby and hungry, we decided to give it a try.

    True, they shred the potatoes for the hash browns, but what we were served was a tiny portion of soggy barely cooked potatoes. We knew they word bakery appears in their name and were disappointed that toast was not an option. The very kind owner did bring us a few pieces of sliced baguette while we waited, but that was it. My partner's scrambled eggs were okay, but my eggs benedict were a nightmare. I have no idea what sort of sauce they smothered the muffin and eggs in, but it was akin to a runny basic gravy of flour and milk, and zero seasoning. But the very worst part was the frijoles. How the heck does a Mexican kitchen turn out bad frijoles? They were so thin that they couldn't be eaten with a fork. Sampling then with my spoon, I found them to be as homogenous as the odd gravy over my eggs. We joked that we needed totopos to drink them from the plate.

    Maybe it's because we've only been here four years, or maybe we just don't like the poor quality of some of the food many people sing the praises of, but we have become very skeptical of recommendations we read on this board. Diner beware!

    I just spoke with Chuy, the chef at Nissa's and he said they never had Eggs Benedict on the menu. What ever you're smoking, I think you should share!

  9. All I know is that we have NEVER had a bad meal there! I don't even remember seeing Eggs Benedict on the menu! Restaurants, especially now, are having a rough time so, I think the old saying should be thought about...if you can't say something good...

    This is not much of a chili dog.  I would rate only a D plus.  Don't know what the wienie or sausage  is but doesn't look like one used for a chili dog.  This is actually an attempt at a chili cheese  dog.  The chili should cover all the wienie and the cheese melted on top with  topping of diced onion and sometimes fresh diced  jalapeno pepper.  Bun is usually not toasted.  My favorite are the foot long ones.

    Damn, have you tried this chili dog or just judging by the photo? Gee Dorthy, you're not in Oregon any more...too bad!
