They eventually leave, still famished, overwhelmed by all the choices they have to make before ordering.

    Well done! I’m an Oasi fanatic…and glad to hear of a couple more Mexican places. I went to Joe Pena’s recently…liked it a lot, but found the prices outrageous for what we got. Also wanna try the Thai suggestions. Love Thai food. Thanks so so much!

      I’m glad you agree! Let me know what you think about the Thai places, I loved Thai Square and will be going back there for sure.

I'd love to hear what you think
