My pulled pork had no semblance of any pulled pork that I have eaten in Mexico. Caesar salad.....I guess that they have never had a Caesar salad- no resemblance to a Caesar salad whatsoever. And to top that off, the waiter was either untrained or he should look for another profession.
The above is about the best that I can say about the place. Usually, having been the restaurant and bar business for many years, I will give a place a second chance. Not sure after yesterday's experience (and it was an experience), that I will give the Smokehouse a second chance.
GoogAL, this is why chef andy cooks at home, there aren't many restaurant items these days down here I can't duplicate and execute better than they do it. Exception: Don Betos Cochinita.......unsurpassed.

Yes, but Chef Andy's is not always open..........at least not to me

I will get back to you about your voice mail question, as soon as I remember what I took there. I did have everything BUT my passport , which, I believe was the one thing that is definitely required. And copies, copies and copies of the copies
