On TOB there is effusive praise for this restaurant in downtown Ajijic with accolades for their poached seabass in some sort of bechamel sauce supposedly made palatable by a reputed garlic infusion (Gawd help us and Dawg loves garlic) and other fare of no particular distinction and so we went there last night expecting culinary enlightenment and, since BBQ ribs were the special of the evening that´s what we ordered and let´s get this straight:

BBQ ribs should be barbequed, not steamed in the kitchen and served with some insipid, bottled , tasteless, cloyingly sweet barbeque sauce (more at home with the mom in Cedar Rapids fixing Chef Boy-Ar-Dee canned noodles) than anything an Alabama boy would even concede had ever found itself anywhere near a BBQ grill. What a travesty. To top it off, the BBQ ribs came with sides of sauteed potatoes and vegetables (Zucchini for God´s sake) with absolutely no flavor that would be a cliché even in Dubuque as was every other dish served last night and don´t they get it? Other specialites that night such as that dreadful sounding sea bass bechamel and that salmon with fins herb have their followings but BBQ ribs don´t go with sauteed zucchini. Oh well, since those steamed ribs with Chef Boy-Ar-Dee BBQ sauce weren´t really BBQ ribs anyway so maybe the zucchini was right on.

We don´t normally judge a restaurant by one meal but if that is what they call BBQ ribs as a special they obviously don´t have a clue. Bye bye.

To top it off, the place was unkempt. If the dining area in a restaurant is strewn about with plant debris and discarded plastic bottles then the kitchen must be a hellhole.

Skip this place. Only a Cleveland or Peoria hayseed having survived on 40 years of boiled potatoes and overcooked, underspiced sausages could find this place enticing.

ROFLMAO! Dawg! You have missed your true calling! That was the best restaurant review I have ever read.
Your very personal opinion I know and we will go and try the place...but your descriptions were outrageously funny.
