I actually read the reviews of this place after I had been there and I was surprised by some of them. The service was excellent, the margarita strong and not too sweet, and the fajitas were among the best I've had anywhere in Mexico or the American southwest. I found the chips and salsa a bit different than in North and Central America...in a good way. And a nice appetizer sized quantity so you weren't full by the time the meal arrived. And it's a good thing! The portion was huge. Sizzling Nebraska beef grilled medium rare and very tender...unlike a lot of Mexican beef. Seasoned perfectly and with the right amount of lime and a hint of garlic. In additon there were grilled onions, sweet and jalapeno peppers, tomatoes and portabellö mushrooms (unusual but a welcome addition)....but mostly it was the juicy beef! On the side, plenty of fresh flour tortillas (no need to ask for more like at most places), pico de gallo, but in a thicker consistency that I am used to--preferred!--sour cream, a wedge of cheese and homemade chunky guacamole. I hadn't eaten dinner the night before so I was starved. It was my first food in over 24 hours...and still I couldn't eat it all!
Regarding the time wating for your check. I find that this is the norm, rather than the exception in Germany. My German friends told me it is considered rude for a restauranteur to present the check right away after your meal. That is strictly an American thing. If you ask, they are happy to bring it to you whenever you are ready.
I sat outside on the patio which I recommend if the weather cooperates. Oh, and my server brought me an English menu when he realized I wasn't a native German speaker. (Easy to tell!) I will definitely go back before I leave Dusseldorf in a few weeks.
I don't think this a restaurant for children...not sure why, just the vibe I got. It's not ChiChi's--which is fine with me!
