Restaurant Review time

Dave and I are excited that some new eateries will be coming in along with the new Walmart on the south side of town. Today we decided to try out the Bajio Mexican Grill at lunch. It is much like Cafe Rio and Costa Vida. I ordered the enchilada and basically my tin was full of rice, overly salty beans and one itty bitty torilla filled with about 2 oz of sweet pork and toppings of my choice. I got fresh salsa, cilantro, sour cream, cheese and a side of lime. I did not get the guacamole as it was 80 cents extra. 80 cents for a spoon full of guacamole! You see where I'm going here.
Dave had a chicken burrito supreme of sorts, rice and the salty beans as well. I had a bite of his and the chicken was dry. With drinks and tax our bill came to $19.85 Needless to say, we scratched Bajio off our list of eatery choices in the valley. The positive-it was fast. It's also conveniently located in the old Macey's new strip mall. Although I don't foresee us going back again, they were fairly busy. Dave and I wondered what will come in once they go out of business. Maybe the Walmart traffic can keep them afloat. Time will tell.
