We haven’t been going to Poblano’s as much lately because I’ve felt the quality of the food has gone down. This used to be our go-to place for Mexican food. Loren said he ate here with some friends a couple of weeks ago and that it had gotten better, so we headed over there tonight. I started off with the beef & cheese dip.
It’s funny, normally I complain about things being too spicy, but this had to have been one of the mellowest cheese dips I’ve had here. I liked it, but it had no spiciness whatsoever. I’ve had it here before where the jalepeno flavor is over the top. Guess it just depends on who’s in the kitchen. I was in the mood for fajitas tonight; but unfortunately, this meal did little to satisfy the craving.
I’m a firm believer that fajitas should come to the table sizzling hot. There should be steam rising from the plate. These were lukewarm and overcooked. The chicken was tough. I admit, I can be overly critical when it comes to food, but when Loren took a bite and kept chewing and chewing and chewing, I knew I wasn’t overreacting. I’ve never had any luck with the fajitas here, so I guess I should have learned my lesson by now. Loren went for one of his favorites, the carnitas.
He enjoyed them. He also mentioned that he thought the restaurant was doing a better job with the presentation of the food. Basically, they’re not slopping the rice & beans together on the plate anymore. The plates may look better; but unfortunately, if the food doesn’t taste better then it’s just window dressing. Total bill was $31 and I’ve pretty much crossed this restaurant off my list.
