"It is of little consequence to the crawlers whether I respect them or not," said Henry lightly."Perhaps not, but it is of great consequence whether Luxa does. Or so it will be in some five years when she comes of age to rule," said Vikus. "At that time, foolish jokes at the crawlers' expense may make the difference between our existence and our annihilation. They do not need to be warriors to shift the balance of power in the Underland."This sobered Luxa up for real, but it killed the conversation. An awkward pause stretched into an embarrassing silence. Gregor thought he understood what Vikus had meant. The crawlers would make better friends than enemies, and humans shouldn't go around insulting them.To Gregor's relief, the food arrived, and an Underlander servant placed a half circle of small bowls around him. At least three contained what looked like various types of mushrooms. One had a ricelike grain, and the smallest contained a handful of fresh greens. He could tell by the skimpy portion that the leafy stuff was supposed to be a big treat.A platter with a whole grilled fish was set in front of him. The fish resembled the ones Gregor was used to except it had no eyes. He and his dad had once watched a show on TV about fish that lived way down deep in some cave and didn't have eyes, either. The weird thing was that when the scientists brought some up to study in a lab, the fish had sensed the light and had grown eyes. Not right away, but in a few generations.His dad had gotten very excited over the show and had taken Gregor to the American Museum of Natural History to look for eyeless fish. They had ended up at the museum a lot, just the two of them. His dad was crazy about science, and it seemed as if he wanted to pour everything in his brain right into Gregor's head. It was a little dangerous, because even a simple question could bring on a half-hour explanation. His grandma had always said, "Ask your daddy the time, and he tells you how to make a clock." But he was so happy explaining, and Gregor was just happy being with him. Besides, Gregor had loved the rain forest exhibit, and the cafeteria with french fries shaped like dinosaurs. They had never really figured out how the fish had known to grow eyes. His dad had had some theories, of course, but he couldn't explain how the fish had been able to change so fast.Gregor wondered how long it took people to become transparent with purple eyes. He turned to Vikus. "So, you were going to tell me how you got down here?"While Gregor tried not to wolf his food, which turned out to be delicious, Vikus filled him in on the history of Regalia.Not all of it was clear, but it seemed the people had come from England in the 1600s. "Yes, they were led here by a stonemason, one Bartholomew of Sandwich," said Vikus, and Gregor had to work to keep a straight face. "He had visions of the future. He saw the Underland in a dream, and he set out to find it."
wonderful food, service &great atmosphere
My family has eaten here for years but, the last time will BE the last time for me. Food was cold by the time we sat down, every veggie was swimming in there own juices, the meat-ham-was inedible and looked awful. Even the dessert was bland and had almost no flavor. I expected better for a $50.00 meal. Not going back.
This is the best Mexican restaurant in Columbus. The food is always served fresh and hot. The service is the best. The Maragaritas are terrific, but the thing that brings us back 3-4 x a week is the way we are treated. We feel like we are a part of the Morales family. Perfecto.
One of the worst experiences I have had in any restaurant for years. Lunch took 1/2, no server EVER came to the table. The food was overcooked and dry but cold. The menu is way overpriced and they nickel-and-dime everything. Totally terrible.
We always stop when we're in the area, definetly one of our favorite "Mexican" resteraunts in town. Food is usually pretty good, prices are decent & most of the employees are super friendly (minus our last waitress). Overall I'd recommend to anyone looking for a nice place to eat.
Food was great . I had a mad- mex burrito with chicken and a side of rice and black beans . Madison My server was very friendly and excellent service . I will be going back soon .
Love the setting and was completely satisfied with their service! :) thank you tee jays!
I went with a friend on Monday and I believe they opened on the previous Friday. We were welcomed and the people who worked there were friendly and courteous. The problem is the price and the food. The lettuce was saturated with water. Even before they added the lettuce the silver bowl it was mixed in had at least a cup of water just laying in it. You have basically a huge bowl of lettuce with 5 ingredients for $8.00 I can go down the road to Jason's Deli and get as many toppings as I can put on my salad for the same price. Or go to Chipotle down the road and have unlimited ingredients in my bowl for one price (except an additional price for guacamole) I will not go back because the taste was primarily...water! They measure the 5 toppings that you add to the copious amount of lettuce and let me tell you, the measurement is SMALL. I was so excited to try it and I believe it is one of a kind premiering in Columbus. While I wish them success, they will need to step up their game with the food!
Fantastic food! Great prices and awesome staff. Truly authentic food! Not to be missed!!! The tacos are the best in Ohio!
