This food here is amazing! I've eaten here twice and have been pleasantly impressed. Although their food is something to brag about, the first time I was here it was extremely packed! We were put in the back room where it was a bit chilly and ended up having a waitress that I wasn't too impressed with. The second time around we had a friendly waitor but we order the pancake sampler as an appetizer and it was forgotten about and ended up being our dessert. All we were repaid with was a free orange juice...come on now. I hate to say it but the prices are a little high for breakfast :-/
I must say that La Cueva does not deserve to be in 2nd place behind El Jardin. My boyfriend and I went here with another couple tonight and will not be back again. The atmosphere and decor is very pleasant and the chicken enchiladas and tostadas were okay but the rest...not so good. The chips are unsalted and anything but crisp and fresh. I was told that the green chile is REALLY spicy and ended up changing my order because of it but after trying a bite of my boyfriends smothered burritos, it was less spicy than the average store bought salsa. The green chile is very watery and the sopapillas are paper thin (there's no comparison after having El Jardin's wonderous sopapillas). The thing that stood out the most though was the HORRIBLE service (mainly our waitress, the hostess was very friendly). I think our waitress came to our table a total of three times and we were there for two hours. I was somewhat embarassed telling our friends that we were coming to the #2 Mexican restaurant just to find out that it doesn't even belong in the top five. Sorry.
The Cody Inn Restaurant ended up being a horrible experience for my dad and I today. I cannot see how this place was awarded #1 for brunch. The flat price of $15.99 is definitely not worth what you get here. The food was average and definitely nothing to brag about. What made our experience so awful was the service we received. The place wasn't even busy and we were pretty much ignored. Our waitor was rude, NEVER asked us how we were doing, NEVER came over to refill our glasses, and we were waiting about twenty minutes after we finished our food to get the check. I will never go back to Cody Inn Restaurant.
