It's to the point where we stay home on holidays most of the time. None of the restaurants can staff up for the occasions sufficiently to handle a full house. Some do a better job than others......but just the frantic vibe is stressful. So......you wait, and wait. Not fun, like holidays are supposed to be.

Back yard barbie with friends becomes much more appealing.

Manix has always done a good job with quality food and plenty of it. I know enough folks who go and I went to St Pattys last year and Thanksgiving the year before. Hector, the owner is serving at the Buffet line watching everything. He's one of the best restauranteurs in this area.

At normal times, THE MOST CONSISTENT restaurant in Ajijic, family owned and operated for over 22 years.

Went once good food, good service, OK value, but since we walk to dinner hate walking along the Carraterra so I probably won't go back to often. Same problems
with other west Ajijic Carraterra resturants. Guess we should walk out west on Ocompo and cut up but for walkers its not so nice sometimes at that end of town.

Maybe Zed is living a car-free life here. lol.

In any case, the traffic happening this holiday weekend has reached the point of resembling Silicon Valley emptying out and heading for the Monterey Bay towns over an overcrowded and dangerous highway on a regular basis........especially on long weekends. Living by the shore had its downside.

Trying to cross the carreterra in that kind of traffic on foot is almost suicidal.
So.....we walked two blocks from our house and had a good lunch at Yves.

The solution.........dreamland, I'm sure............would be an overpass somewhere along the way, for both people and cars.

Zed, walk west on Zaragoza and cut up the road that is almost across from Robertos. This should be an easy walk for you from where you're at.

While we would probably never pick the center of Ajijic for a residence, we certainly can understand why some make that choice. The fact that one has the option of walking to numerous restaurants is a real plus and can actually be touted as being healthy. Our habit when traveling through so many areas of Mexico is to pick a place to stay which allows us the luxury of being able to enjoy a 10 to 15 minute walk going to and from dinner. For us, that is one of the real pluses to our overall experience!

I think the deal breaker for many people, especially those who are not so fast on their feet....is crossing that hazardous carretera after dinner, in the dark, on foot.

There are some drivers speeding along there who are either senile, going blind, drunk or high on something...... or just plain not looking at the road. Maybe some want one of those little plastic flowered memorials sooner rather than later.

That's why we go out to eat and get home before dark. Pretty easy from March 1 on through October.
