We moved to this area 2 years ago when the restaurant was El Gordo. It was really great. The absolute best Chile Relleno and Margaritas in town. Now? Not so much. The Si Senor chain seems to have entirely squeezed all of the flavor out of the prior establishment.
While the menu is the same, the end product IS NOT!!!!
Weak margaritas with really bad day-glow crappy mixes. Mine, a special margarita with premium tequilla, tasted like gatorade with bottled lime juice. Where was the tequilla? Couldn't taste it. $8 I might add...
My husband and I have tried over and over, as it is close to home but, It never seems to get better.
With El Gordo, The Chile Relleno was a plump Pablano chile stuffed with stewed chicken , wonderful mild cheese and a freshly made tomato/chile sauce.
Everything now has a distinct pre-fab, unfresh blandness to it. That may be okay for some, but we remember something much more special that is sorely missed.
The service is always wonderful though, which barely keeps us coming. Pick up your game okay? We'd like to be able to recommend you again!
Pros: Wonderful service
Cons: food has gone downhill
