ComputerGuy Posted March 13, 2020 Report Share Posted March 13, 2020 This established restaurant on the main walk in Tlaquepaque is lovely inside and offers an interesting choice of steaks, seafood, and Mexican fare. It is not cheap; none of the nice restaurants are. But, that's what we wanted. Here's why I'm posting this: a family member is visiting, and after breakfast at Pancho's the day before, he was wondering how that place gets away with such poor... everything. Burnt English muffins under an amazingly sloppy and exploded pair of Eggs Benedict, with watery sauce; burnt pancakes, too. No salt and pepper on the table; almost impossible to catch a waiter's eye; having to ask repeatedly for items. We go out to eat for a nice experience, and we don't get an apology, a recompense, or anything in return for our money. At Casa Fuerte (and I've eaten there before), the service was impeccable. Impeccable. Several servers always responding to our needs before we had them. Delicious food served rapidly; all condiments and appetizers and side dishes brought to the table when they should have been, no need to ask for anything, and in fact not even any hovering. Just a pleasant experience from the time we entered until the time everyone thanked us on our way out the door. We left a substantial tip, because it was bloody well worth it. Nothing compares around here, not even Tango where the service is usually very fast but mostly frenzied, with serving staff knocking into elbows and tables constantly. We left Fuerte more relaxed than ever, not a thing to complain about, and great memories. Most impressive dish: queso fundido. 95p. A searingly-hot molcajete with a tomatillo sauce bubbling away, and a huge chunk of cheese placed into the liquid and masterfully chopped up with fork and spoon while we looked on. The cheese melted into massive gooey lumps and we had great fun spooning it out onto tostadas. 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
