Where else to get car washed and waxed near Ajijic? Empty Where else to get car washed and waxed near Ajijic?

Post by sm1mex Thu Apr 14, 2016 12:20 pm

know of the car wash place on the libramiento by the fish taco place and it is excellent, but we tried to get in there but it had a long waiting line of cars and the wait to get the car washed and waxed was way too long to sit at one of the restaurants to eat.  I thought there was another place east of Ajijic on the mountain side but it looks like it is gone.  Is there any other place, maybe less busy to get a car washed and waxed? I don't need the car detailed.

Surtiwash, on Madero in Chapala was our first choice ever since they opened. Great job inside and out. You can shop nearby and pick up your car at your convenience. Or, you can sit in their glass waiting room and watch the activity, or even browse in the bookstore at the front of the building. I hope it is all still there, as we have been gone awhile now.

Surtiwash have moved and are now on Pepe Guizar just west of the highway to Mezcala.

There is also an excellent car wash across from the Pemex in Chapala.

Is the Pemex mentioned the old one near Soriana or the new one going towards Guadalajara?

I'm a little confused. If you turn right at the Pemex, isn't there a big field on the right where they used to have the circus when it came to town?

There's a car wash we use located two doors to the west of Roberto's Restaurant in Ajijic. It usually isn't too busy and lunch at Roberto's while it's happening is about the right amount of time to get the wash job done. The food is not outstanding, but the menu is varied and the prices reasonable.

Kind of a passive-aggressive way of dissing Roberto's? I've been to Roberto's a few times, and I think it's quite good.....

"Passive aggressive"? Please leave the shrink terms to the shrinks.

I used to be a huge fan of Roberto's and was very disappointed when the quality stopped hitting the mark.  That happened during Omar's tenure.  The ingredients were no longer the best, so no, it is no longer among the top places in town, but that's just one person's opinion.  Yours is different.
Robert himself is a fine chef.  Enough said.

Not sure if Omar is still there.....never met him and no idea who he is, but when Roberto's Restaurant is number 17 out of 105 restaurants in Ajijic on Trip Advisor, I think I'll take other people's opinions over yours, thank you very much!

I use the fellow in the garage behind El Torito. I don't (ever) ask for a wax....my car is ten years old! But he does a good job inside and out otherwise, for a very reasonable price. Plenty to do nearby and places to eat, etc.

Raffa, on highway in Riberas by the Baptist Church, just east across from Ladron the vet. His guys are excellent and very honest. Never have them going thru the console or car.

I think Omar and Robert dissolved their partnership officially a year or more ago.  When Robert was ill, Omar was pretty much running the place and I noticed immediately that the cooking oils were cheapened, as was the quality in general.
As a for instance, the cooking oils for the popular carrot fritters weren't changed as often as they should have been, and one got served nearly black ones.  It's all better since Robert is back.

My taste buds, not Trip Advisor, are my number 1 food critic. YMMV.

I have no idea why SueGarn chose to be insulting.  It's just a restaurant opinion, and she's certainly entitled to hers.

Gringal and her husband have been regulars at Roberto's as long as I've eaten there so I think she's earned her opinion.

Thank you. We have known and liked Robert since back when he was the owner and chief chef on the lakefront.

I think the car wash mentioned west of Roberto's has been closed for a while. It has a for sale sign on it.
