Same owners. Apparently different shifts for workers now. Had a pleasant, yet still slightly disappointing (for there) meal Saturday. Here's a few things I've learned lately...

1.The big cook will not disappoint. He just hasn't been there the last few times I've been there. I've found that his meals are consistently twice as good as the other cooks. I don't know why this is the case but it is.

2.Salsa might be made in large batches on Sunday. Just seems that it's great on Sunday and gets progressively watery as the week goes on. Loses some flavor too.

3.Counter service vs. waitress. I have no idea why I was asked to order at the counter for lunch last week. Back to normal on Saturday night. Might be a lunch vs dinner thing. I've had lunch many times there but maybe it just wasn't enforced before.
