North American eateries

Ratings are on a scale of 0 to 24. The scale used to be 0 to 10, so restaurants written about before 2012 may have only had their ratings adjusted by formula and not by hand (hence all the 2s, 5s, 8s, etc.) The scale works as follows:

PRO
24 23 22 21 20 19 18 17 16
pro
15 14 13 12 11 10
mixed
9 8 7 6 5 4
con
3 2 1
CON
0

An asymmetrical 0 to 24 scale may not be intuitive, I realize. But as a rule of thumb: a double-digit score means I liked it, while a single-digit score... less so. Also, as you might expect, scores from many years ago may not be very reliable, so do check the dates.

Pro: The desserts looked great! Con: When we got there, they were out of half of the desserts. Con: The dessert we did get (pina colada bread pudding) was not very good. Pro: Therefore we were less distraught about the fact that they'd run out of the other dessert we wanted! (Also I got a nondescript vegetable soup and Lizzie got a bad noodle bowl.)

Lizzie and I got some chilaquiles here. They were great, and the service was excellent as well! Highly recommended.
