JOHN'S LIST OF AJIJIC AREA RESTAURANTS UPDATED

Post by joec on Sat Dec 08, 2012 12:26 pm

This has been UPDATED due to Restaurant name change and quality of one restaurant has been downgraded. This is good for newbies or those vacationing here. I am not a food critic and many of you may disagree. This may help newbies or those coming for a few weeks. Our Bi Monthly Dinner groups favorites are asterisked. I don't expect everyone here to agree as everyone's taste is different. Some restaurants are not listed because we (our Dinner Group) have not eaten at them. All Restaurants are in Ajijic unless otherwise noted.

Just wonder what got La Bodega four stars. I haven't heard a good word about La Bodega's food for years.

Never had a good dinner there but once we had a very good lunch, although it was over-priced, IMO

DON PEDRO Restaurant is no longer "One of the 12 Best Restaurants in Ajijic". They are having money and food supply problems.

For "great" Filet Mignons, steaks, BBQ Ribs and fish go to BRUNO'S, and IMHO, better than Tango anyday.

SIMPLY THAI Restaurant should be changed to Excellent and move up the list. They're doing a great job.

List is badly out of date. I counted 8 closures or relocations that I know of.

I guess that john will have to revise his income spreadsheets to accommodate the reduced commissions for touting certain restaurants?

The obvious closures are 60´s in Paradise, Hole in One and The Secret Garden. On relocations, you need new addresses and phone numbers to make the list useful. No one person has them all. Maybe people who frequent relocated restaurants can make a point of getting new addresses and phone numbers, send them to you and you make the change? I do not use the lists but assume there are newcomers and visitors who do.
