    What reservations at Cantina Laredo? I called and they told me that they don't take reservations. My neighbors called and were told the same thing. So good luck making reservations. Also beware of the $35 margarita. I know someone who ordered one thinking that it was a big pitcher for the table and it was just one drink.

    Can't wait for PF Changs! The Lemon Chicken is to die for! I live at the one in Nashville when I am there.

    We better start taking up a collection for the $35 margarita. :lol: I have all summer to save, since they don't take reservations.:angry: There is no food that is good enough to have to wait more than 15 minutes for a table, so it looks like I will be waiting for the crowds to thin a bit.

    I don't understand about the reservation thing-maybe they changed their procedures. As far as the Margaritas go, ours were big and frozen and I believe $8.00, although I didn't pay so I'm not 100% sure.

    We had 4 adults, 3 children, dinner for all, and 5 Margaritas. The bill was about $110.00. So I know the drinks weren't $35.00. Sounds like someone made a big ordering boo-boo.

    No one should ever mix good tequila with margarita mix. That just ain't right. Margarita mix is used to cover up the taste of cheap tequila and does a good job of it. ;-)

    Were dargaritas in the Party Ball on NYE? They were good! I can't believe I've never had one at Tarpon Club -- I'll have to try one. Big D says thanks for the compliments on his.:D

    Exactly. Once we had a margarita at Shades with the house tequila. It was so good that we decided to try one with Patrone's. We couldn't really tell the difference.

    Just as in college we used to try to have one beer at every bar on Magazine Street from Audubon to Canal (in one night -- never accomplished it), we've joked that our next quest should be to try a shot of every tequila at Taqueria Del Sol in Atlanta (not in one night :floor: ). They must have about 100.

    Speaking of P. F. Chang's and Mexican food, I'm not big on chain restaurants (Houston's being the exception), but I think Pappasito's is awesome. Of course, in one meal you'll get enough calories for a week and fat grams for a month. Love the family-style Plato Toro with ribs, brochette-style shrimp, beef and chicken fajitas, frijoles a la charra, rice, guacamole, pico de gallo, and, of course, chips and salsa. Yum!

    Why did Luna Del Mar close? It was always busy.

    We tried out Cantina Laredo tonight and we liked it! The food was good, the decor was nice, the service wasn't bad, but the waiter was very busy. The place was packed. There was about a 45 minute wait. Try the freshly made guacamole that they make at your table. Very good.

    We were given lunch menus by mistake to begin with, so I assume they are open for lunch.

    I drove on up there and, yes, you are correct, they are open for lunch. To eat off the lunch menu, go Monday-Friday. Regular menu on the weekends.

    Let me say, this place was EXCELLENT. Loved the atmosphere, food and staff. Just a very good experience all around.

    I recommend this place. I have been waiting for a good Mexican Restaurant for years!!!
