barrio cafe - how crowded for weekday lunch?

Picking up my wife at the airport around noon tomorrow and we usually go out to lunch instead of cooking after she returns from a trip. Typically go to Farm Kitchen at South Mountain for a sandwich or Nobuo for Japanese or Pizzeria Bianco for pizza but am considering trying the Barrio Cafe.

Read uhockey's recent write-up and it sounded pretty good but looking at other non-CH reviews I see people bitching about long waits (and favoritism toward repeat customers for seating) and some say it has gone downhill a bit since the chef became sorta famous.

So anyone have experience going there in the middle of the lunch hour on a Wednesday (we'd probably get there around 12:30 - 12:45) and if so was there a wait?

Anybody disappointed in the food? We go to Mexico often (or used to) and are pretty familiar with the cuisine and the menu looks pretty interesting, but I'm wondering if there's been a drop-off with the fame.

Thanks!

Will
