They were already on my list, they're fantastic. We used to hang out at the Mercado often, but since El Pueblito moved we have not been back. We go to La Fresita instead for flavorful Mexican food. I try to get to El Pueblito's new location at least twice a month, It's one of the few reasons I would be on that side of town.
But Yvonne, they must have someplace equally as good in Snottsdale at 5 times the price, with plenty of parking for Lexus's and Acura's.
I love this taqueria! I was so sad when they moved, I lived abut two minutes from the Mercado. I also know the downtown lunch crowd misses it, too. I miss the spicy and always piping hot chilaquiles. I am very happy to hear that the new location is just as tasty. Sadly, I know miss them even more since moving to Scottsdale. If the owners or employees read this, don't ever change! Best chilaquiles in town!
I have asked owners at some independent restaurants why they do not use "earth friendly" carry-out containers and the answer has always been cost. Profit margin is pretty small for independent restaurants and those type of containers are pricey. So are we willing to pay a bit more to help our small restaurants be "earth friendly"?
Agree with those who do not find their food is very good- miss Frog that was up on Oracle and sold their super bread & pastries st the farmers mkt & while pretty pricey food at restaurant was good
I read this review as one that is advocating for the pluses and what she sees may be some minuses; leaving us deciding to take out or if you enjoy a divey leisurely meal, to enjoy it here. Unless the day she reviewed there was a take out special... It sounds like she witnessed other people enjoying their meal the same way she prefers, to go.
When dining in at places with large potions most people ask for take out containers either way. I say start with asking your favorite restaurants to use earth friendly disposables, because it awesome to see people finally caring about this issue, I stand behind the importance of this for sure.
Happy dining out or at your house!
I have eaten at Karuna's for at least fifteen years and love it dearly. I generally do the lunch buffet where the selection is limited (veggie and meat sides) but the food is excellent. And, quality and range of selection at dinners is much better than lunch buffet and prices are always reasonable, especially on the duck! The dining room is dingy and cramped, but it is great Thai food at a great price. Worth the inconvenience.
For those who Knew Him (Mukhjeev Singh) or heard about him, its very sad to announce that he passed away yesterday 21 Aug 2015, I am just mentioning this here as I got to see this message board, He was a batch mate in School "Modern School" in New Delhi - India - Batch of '81. We just heard the news today!
May his soul Rest in Peace .....
Other comment get it right! More landfill over 20 precious minutes! Boo-hoo. Also there is no mention of the lunch buffet which is a great deal and doesn't pose the waiting/service issues that the writer complains of. I feel bad for slighted Karuna's.
Advocating take-out in our waste-oriented society is very short sighted. More garbage in our landfills to save a 20 minute wait? Wow.
Don't forget Thunder Canyon Brewery.
I have lunch at NOOK at least once a week and have had a weekend brunch party that was very successful. I've not experienced the poor service that is described in this article rather enjoy the efficiency the waiters show as they hustle through the busy hour of the day. I've had business lunches at NOOK and have always appreciated the servers discretion and awareness of opportune times to offer refills. I don't know the girls name but she, Jack and Logan are some of my favorite servers downtown. I wonder if the kitchen was backed up during the writers visits or they were short staffed as that could be the cause of this otherwise unusual experience? You'll find me in the back corner booth enjoying NOOK.
Wow, not at all my experience. Nook is 3 for 3 with me. Love the young, happy staff and the food is spectacular. We will be back!!!!
I have eaten there and find the food, the owners AND the service wonderful. The food comes out when its ready and prepared properly. Maybe we should stop nit picking and concentrate on the positive. We had servers all around us taking care of customers. Highly recommend Nook.
Sounds absolutely dreadful. Why subject yourself to such an experience. Another good reason to eat at home where I get good food properly served.
Pascos is the best!
The Hermanos burger looks really terrible.
Gardening is a great experience for all ages. My favorite plant to grow is the TickleMe Plant. I love how the leaves fold together like magic when you Tickle it! Everyone will want to grow a TickleMe Plant.
You can find the kits online
Heather, next time you go, enter via the hotel/resort and avoid the casino craziness.
