We have been going to this restaurant fairly regularly for the past 10 years. After an interval of bout a year, we decided to have lunch there on Friday 3 Jan. They used to have a great burger, "Fetapeno" on their menu, and I was surprised to see that this has been substituted by a new Texan burger with onions, Cheddar cheese and Chipotles. I ordered this, and when it arrived, I found the plate half covered in french fries, a table spoon of a coleslaw, and a large patty with the burger. There was a small trace of Cheddar cheese, lots of onions, and a few Chipotles. The "beef Patty" was dry and tasteless, but the onions and the Chipotles made up for that. My wife ordered Fajeetas, and when these arrived, she was informed by the waitress that the Fajeetas has been reduced to three small ones, and that she could order more, if needed. My wife decided that the meal required two more Fajeetas, which were supplied. Imagine our surprise when we were charged an additional sum for the two Fajeetas. For the price of the food, which has gone up by about 30% , and the quality reduced by the same amount since our previous visit, we will not be going back
