In a few weeks, I'll be driving down from Long Beach to visit a friend with whom, when she was last in town, I shared a decent meal at the Old Town RBL. I have noted that the chain draws howls of derision from hardcore hounds, and wondered about the nature of the beefs. Price? Quality? Service? Also, I'd love to know of better places which follow RBL's format closely, i.e. casual dining Mex seafood. The friend in question is from northern Ontario, and good Mex is a requirement for any So Cal visit.
