Re: “El Tenampa

This had been a favorite restaurant with our family, but we ran into a very negative maitre d' a few months ago when we stopped in to try their Saturday buffet. Our family are vegetarians, usually no problem with their large menu, but since the buffet did not have much in terms of vegetarian options, I asked for a chile rellenos with cheese instead of with chicken. Above the fee we paid for the buffet, I was charged extra for the special order, which I considered fair. My 12 and 14 year old children were happy with just making their own bean burritos on the buffet. What troubled me was the visibly negative attitude and comment from the manager as I paid for lunch, which added up to just under $70 for my wife and I and our two kids. I think the waiter might have tried to get the price reduced and maybe that was the issue, but I felt that, as a vegetarian, I was being treated as a pariah, even though my wife and I had been more than willing to pay the extra. The bottom line is the food is great and I can recommend it, but the friendliness was lacking... as least on that day.
