Well sounds like he should come back, theres a place for him but with proper partners. Business partners are as important as marriage partners.

Indeed. What a pity, I didn't get a chance to try it once. It says something for Mr Juarez' professionalism that he didn't take the opportunity to rant about his (ex-)business partner. It sounds to me like he got screwed over.

Even so, I think tango42 is right. I rarely spend $200+ on a meal. If the owner re-opens, he'll have to find a way to bring the price of a basic lunch down to ~$140, ie., the price of a McDonalds. That ought to be possible without sacrificing quality - perhaps by offering a set menu or "meal of the day" with simple prep and bulk local ingredients.

Yeah, from that one reply, it sounds like a shitty deal and he sounds like a decent bloke. Hope he comes back and tells us about it.

Hi Incubus, having been open over a year now (yeah!) we were able to negotiate with our suppliers and lower the prices on many of our items on our new menu that debuted last month (Apr 2012). While our "gourmet" items (Cielo Chicken, Pineapple Pork, and Organic US Ribeye) are still some of our most popular, as always we are doing our best to cater to those on a more limited budget without compromising on ingredients, freshness and quality. We don't skimp on the expensive stuff like quality meats, real Jack cheese, tomatoes and sour cream, we feel those are essential to quality Mexican food, and we use organic or pesticide free ingredients whenever possible because we're concerned about our health and our earth.

If cost is a big concern, try the taco rice bowls, arroz con pollo (with a new spicy Jalapeño-tomaté salsa!), regular taco baskets or platters, chicken flautas, Ancho chicken salad, Caesar salad with Chicken, any of which will fill you up for under nt300. Or if that's still too expensive for you, just come at lunch weekdays when we have many items around 200nt, including burritos, nachos, and big juicy hambourguesas with either pineapple salsa or spicy chipotles en adobo. :lick:

Our prices have always been significantly lower than the big US chains here that serve Mexican items, and our food is all fresh and handmade, not preprocessed and packaged, so whatever you order, you feel (and are) healthier when you leave.

Hope you'll give us another chance sometime! - Erik
