  1. Great food and great service!
  2. NLU, I am aware that I can get the answer from Lupe but I disagree that he is the best option for me. You see, if I called him and asked the question and the answer turned out to be that he comes only to the house .....it would seem awkward to me to tell him I would rather not have some one come to the house. Now, I am sure you have an opinion about that also and I will gladly let you opine without a response from me so you can enjoy the last word.
  3. Does Lupe come to the house or does she have a location?
  4. We ate there today and the food is great! There is a large variety which makes it a good place for us since my husband doesn't like eggs all that much. There was a fantastic chicken dish (we both had seconds on it), rice, a spicy pasta, green beans, scrambled eggs as well as a fresh made omelette if you wanted, different breads and biscuits, gravy, bacon, rosemary potatoes, fruit, and we both had a waffle for dessert which was freshly made, nice and crispy on the outside and tender on the inside and cooked all the way through. You have a choice of maple syrup, honey, homemade raspberry or blackberry jam. Then, of course, your choice of coffee or orange juice. We will be back for sure. The place is extremely clean, comfortable and attractive. The service is as good as the food. We enjoy their gourmet hamburgers and specialty mac and cheese during the week so when we heard they were having Sunday brunch we knew it would be special. If you are driving west you will pass The Anchor Restaurant and just a little bit further you will see on the mountain side a long fence covered in advertising which partially hides the development going up behind it. Immediately after the sign covered fence there is a small strip center and this restaurant is in that little center. There is usually a sign out front and, of course, one on the building itself.
  5. Again, we were just in Laredo. The mall has a Macy's, Dillards and J.C. Penney's. This is in the Mall del Norte located on I-35 just 3 to 5 miles after you cross the border.
  6. We live in Upper Chula Vista and see a fox frequently. Also, depending on how big the cat is there are owls that might also prey on them.
  7. We just last week stayed at the Ava Hotel. Clean, great beds, good breakfast, excellent service, free WiFi. Used to be a Ramada. $38.00 plus tax on Expedia. We stayed there last year as well.
  8. Panino's Restaurant has the best and least expensive Thanksgiving Dinner, in our opinion. We have paid a lot more and gone to several different restaurants over the years but Panino's is hands down the best. The only problem is there are no reservations allowed. This year I had come down with the shingles so we picked up and ate at home which was really nice too.
  9. So, I am confused. Are we supposed to be angry or not respect him because he got well or better? That when he got better he started another business? Does anyone think that his food is anything like Janelle's? He would be respected maybe if he had died like a lot of people thought was going to happen?
  10. Thank you do much for caring for this sweet baby and finding her owners. Hopefully, they will not let it close to the dangers of the traffic again!
  11. Yes, we have just written Ron's home off our list. It is a loss as we really thought Ron and Sarah were loving, caring people .... but I guess that is just if someone looks the way they approve of or has enough money to pay for their services.
  12. I am so sad to here that he's feeling lonely. I knew he was getting attached because I certainly was and am. If we could keep him I would be there in a red hot minute. He is so loving and sweet. But then again there are so many that are loving and sweet ... that is why we have 3 and many more people have more than three. I have a friend that has 6! but then he is much younger than we are.
  13. LagoDrifter, please contact The Ranch. Ask them about Paws. We rescued him about six weeks ago but we have 3 dogs and just couldn't handle 4. Paws is about 1 to 1-1/2 years old, we had him neutered and all shots. He is house trained, extremely loving, gets along with other dogs and people. He would be perfect! I so hope you agree. Here are a couple of pictures of him being hounded by our two little ones.
  14. Barcelona Woman I agree with you on some levels. However, food prices have gone up for everyone and those prices have to be reflected as well when eating out. As to the person that thinks I was responsible for all of our housekeeper's good fortune, I was not. However, paying $100 pesos for a day of work was not a living wage even for here. She now makes $60 pesos an hour. She was offered $1500.00 pesos for 6 hours from a newbie to leave us but thank goodness she's loyal. It's those kind of unreasonable prices that aggravate me. The newbies are ruining the economy, I agree.
  15. The Mac and cheese was fantastic. They have several recipes to choose from. The hamburger today had meaty bacon, grilled onions and grilled poblano peppers and Gouda cheese in a pretzel hot buttered toasted bun. The Mac And Cheese had several cheeses ...one of which was brie and tiny sauteed tomatoes. It came with a small salad, half a pear topped with cheese and 2 pieces of garlic bread. We could not clean our plates. BTW,. If you price the cheese at any store you will find that cheese is just cheese is lost on the supplier. There are some really tasty cheese to be had but you pay more than what you would for the run of the mill plastic wrapped stuff. However, I wouldn't complain much either if costs were what they used to be. Of course, when we arrived here 14 years ago our housekeeper (who still works for us) was sleeping in a home with her family with no windows or doors, on the floor on a pallet. Our dog beds were better. I am really happy that at this point she and her family have windows and doors with screens and beds to sleep in. She doesn't come to work hungry any more so I don't have to give her breakfast or see that she had lunch because that may be the only meal she gets that day. She now has a pair of eye glasses so she can see the dirt and dust she is cleaning. Little things like that ... but, sure, who wouldn't want to pocket double the pesos we get from our money we bring down and just let the people who help us every day stay where they were sleeping on the floor with rain or mosquitoes.
  16. If anyone would like to try this restaurant before making negative comments, they might find these burgers far superior to most. They are very large and extremely tasty and, no, as far as we are concerned using really good beef is not lost on a hamburger unless you drown it in catsup ....then, yes, why pay the price. The service is excellent, the food is absolutely delicious and you don't go away hungry for sure. Everything is fresh and plentiful. The cheese is real and plentiful. The fries are excellent as well. I understand prices are higher but the meal is more than large enough and good enough to warrant it. Not only have food prices gone up significantly but so has the exchange rate. At this point we are paying no more than we did when we moved here 14 years ago when the exchange rate is taken into consideration. Oh! I forget the hamburger buns! They are real buns that are buttered and toasted and don't get soggy and fall apart. The burger is big enough that I eat it with a knife and fork. We are going to try one of the Mac and cheese dishes that comes as a meal with a salad today ... halving that and one of the burgers. Will let you know about the Mac and cheese.
  17. I wonder if the people in La Floresta who recently lost their dog would like for whoever sees her to just leave her out in the street to maybe get attacked or run over. Or, maybe the people that lost their baby at Furry Friends would want some one in that neighborhood to just let their dog try to find it's home
  18. If anyone would like to share a Post Office Box please pm me.
  19. We ordered the 23 at Quality Care last year. It took about a week for them to get the vaccine. I do not remember the cost.
  20. So, it's 8:12 pm and still no electricity. This is getting old.
  21. MtnMama, I realize this but this dog was so exhausted it could hardly walk. It was hungry and thirsty and scared (not of me but just in general). I know this is someone's pet but it will not leave my yard except to go into the house. It follows me except when I go out of the gate. He is very heavy and I can not make him move when he doesn't want to. He is used to sleeping in someone's bed as that is the first thing he did when he entered the bedroom for the night ... hop on the bed. I immediately had him hop off and onto a very comfy dog bed as my 3 do sleep with me a lot of the time and there just is not room for 4 in a full size bed. I will be knocking doors in Upper Chula Vista (the neighborhood) on Friday as I have other previous obligations for tomorrow. I am praying that someone didn't dump him and then he tried to keep up with the car and became almost lame and exhausted. I have seen this happen several times over the past years.
  22. Please pm me if this is your dog or if you know the owner. He is very gentle, gets along with dogs and people, house trained, eats dog food, very loving but also a bit scared ....his back legs are stiff like maybe he was injured before but doesn't seem to be in any pain now.
  23. We had lunch there today. It was absolutely fantastic and this is coming from a meat and potatoes person! We will be back very soon. The decor is as attractive as the food and the food is as delicious as it is attractive. The service was just right. Prices very reasonable.
