South of the border is where this restaurant has gone! 3/27/2008

The first time we visited this establishment about a year ago in 2007, it was good. This is NOT the case currently. My husband and I dinned there for lunch today and were sorely disappointed. Not only displeased with the quality of food, I have been up all night with stomach problems. My husband had the fish soup which cost $12. He had hoped for that price a hearty soup with vegetables and meat, instead it was a bowl of broth and little other than that. It was a large portion but a large portion of broth. I had the fajita salad. I notice a bit of unusual taste but thought it was the juice from the orange slices on the salad. The salad consisted of bag iceberg lettuce mix and a huge amount of raw onions and green peppers and about a tablespoon of guacamole and a dollop of sour creme. This was a $9.75 salad. The onions and peppers were not cooked as one would expect on a salad. The chicken was dry and not hot - aparently had been sitting a while. The waitress was nice and did a good job considering what she had to work with. We should have gotten the hint when we drove up and the parking lot was vacant during what should have been a busy lunch time. This place has definitely "gone south"!! We won't be going back! more
