It doesn't take much to impress me, and i generally love mexican food, even americanized chipotle mexican food. After reading somebody say that that chicken avocado tostada was really good, I decided to order it for myself with rice and beans. 11 dollars. It was horrible. Everything was extremely bland, and the tostada looked horrific. it didn't even look close to appetizing. The chicken looked and tasted funky, the actual tostada was falling apart, rice didn't seem very fresh, just bad overall. Waste of money, waste of time.

Well done. I agree that restaurants allow "to(sic) many families with screaming crying children" in them. Similarly, Wikis seem to allow too many idiots to write assinine comments, such as critizing a restaurant for the clientele that chooses to come there, rather than the food the restaurant serves. Personally, I think all restaurants should start posting big signs announcing who they'd like to limit seating to. We can start with those pesky gay people, move on to right wing conservatives, of course limit families with kids, and how about a big blanket policy that prohibits Dancohen from everyplace. --["Users/mediator"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> La Esperanzahttp://daviswiki.org/La_Esperanza2007-08-24 19:36:11GeoffJohnson(quick edit) <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for La Esperanza<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 17: </td> <td> Line 17: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- </span>La Esperanza is a Mexican sit-down ["restaurants" restaurant] in Davis.

It seems to be more of a family restaurant because when I was there with a friend, there were about 5 or 6 families that came. For the amount of food you get, I thought the price was reasonable. Yea it's not as cheap as one of the Taquerias but you are also paying for the service since it's sit-down. The service was excellent, friendly, came by in decent intervals, refilled our chips. The only complaint I have is that it was dim in the restaurant. Maybe they were trying to save on energy?
