If you want to avoid entering the hosting hell dimension, here are 10 potential entertaining glitches, and how to avoid them.
Food/building good/clean. Tables in back need to be spaced for more privacy. I was seated next to what turned out to be an extremely rude, ignorant black woman who insisted on coughing on my food after it arrived. She ( turned out) deliberately did so - WHY...i have no idea. Only thing i figure i was 'doing' is just existing in (her) vicinity. Apparently she didn't like my attire which was a nice USFlag comono type top - and as I am white - evidently, a white woman wearing red,white,blue, apparently put her over the top bringing out her nasty side. The customer in question, (deliberately) and openly coughed on me right after my food was brought. I reacted with a wince, to which her table mates saw and & she did it again turning to face me even more - I was willing to let it slide the first time - but im not paying $15.00 a plate to have someone deliberately cough all over it! I turned over my shoulder and said "that was rude" - and from there they jumped on the bandwagon and lit into me. They just wouldn't let it rest. Her party proceeded to relentlessly behave ignorantly by making crude remarks and laughing raucously which of course ruins the nice atmosphere. Due to my particular experience there w/that particular miscreant, my waiter moved me, then totally ignored me, never returning to see if i needed anything. I asked another waiter who kept running back and forth right past my table w/o acknowledging me who my waiter was and she retrieved my original waiter. I asked him why he hadn't returned to my table and he repeated five times that he was 'watching me' - to which five times i told him okay but why didn't you approach me and ASK me if all was well or did i need anything. He just walked away. This negligence in and of itself can equate to extremely bad service! All in all, and insult to injury topped off what otherwise (could) have been a positive first time dining experience. To all this drama i have two questions of the Restaurant: WHY was i made to feel like (I) was the perpetrator - i tried to explain to the Hostess what happened but all she did is give me a 'weak' "im sorry ma'am". I was treated that because the perps were black and more than just one at their table - meaning more money that Mama didn't want to risk for food to just possibly walk out w/o paying. Plus the fact 'they' were most likely 'regulars' and they want that money to return - so it was easier ignore the white lady who's alone than to risk 4 angry blacks ! since i was alone, with no one accompanying me - its easier to go where the money is and didn't care if i returned or not. I hardly knew the table was there until the nasty lady decided to make a dramatized cough onto my food after it was brought to me! The placement of tables are angled and so close together with a very short (reach) between tables - where if someone chooses to be ignorant it can affect most everyone around. As happened to me. Apparently some customer 'types' feel Mamacita's being in their low end neighborhood means it belongs to ppl of color and whites just shouldn't be there! I would assume by her behavior that she and her table were regulars. This customer was clearly filled with hate for white skin & American flags. Her 'edge of town attitude' bad manners apparently were a 'freebie' thrown into the already pricey plates & ignorant service i received.Tables need arranging different to afford privacy & would definitely discourage bad behavior of ANY kind. Take out even one table - and it would help! The particular seating arrangement is awkward and seems the restaurant is trying to squeeze as many in as is possible. There is very little privacy. DEFINITELY NOT worth the fear of watching over my shoulder to make sure my food doesn't get contaminated! Pricey & food isn't (that) authentic to take another chance running into those vagrants. and that ignorant waiter!
Love this place!! Just wish they had more seating but food is excellent. Try the shredded beef tacos
I went to Mojitos on a Friday night, Tommy Tarango was playing, great music. I was greeted by my server, and enlightened on all the specials they were offering. Great Gran Marnier Margarita by the way. I had an extra shot of Patron in my Margarita. The Castillos were excellent. My server kept my drink full and my table clear of debris. The owner came around to all of the tables to check on our experience. This is a business that the whole team cares for their patrons. Definitely will be bringing out of town friends in. This is my new favorite spot to hang out and have a good time. Watch out for Juan she has jokes for days.
Great atmosphere, music is great but lack of wait staff makes for poor service...needs to hire a manager to handle customer service.
The service and food is good here. We go for breakfast at least twice a week. It's a nice a clean place. Chicken enchiladas are great too.

Visited Odessa and tried Mojitos Mexican Bar and Grill. The ambiance was superb. The food was great and delicious. I love their ceviche,pineapple salmon and ribs! Considering the portions served to us the price were reasonable. The staff were attentive and very friendly. They should open a branch in other cities in Texas and perhaps in Boston! I will definitely recommend this restaurant. One just cannot pass the opportunity to eat authentic Mexican food prepared so delicately.Good job to those working in this restaurant!
Mojitos has the best menudo and Fish Tacos!!service is good fast and friendy salsa and chips are free
Best food in odessa authentic mexican food the green enchiladas are awesome and the strawberry basil mojito was the bomb!!!!
Bad service, bland tasteless Mexican Food, not real Mexican food save your time and money. Chips cold, salsa no heat, floor had old limes laying on floor with old empty sugar packets, this place has got problems
The locks installed on the doors and windows of every home represent the most common, and perhaps most effective, form of security. That means locks can be taken for granted, until they no longer work properly or the key is lost. Homeowners should work to understand the basics behind these essential household devices, as well as how to address common problems related to them.
The concept behind a lock-and-key mechanism has been around for centuries, so it's no surprise that their basic design hasn't changed much in recent years. At the same time, a number of different types of locks are now available to meet specific needs.
Perhaps the most common type of lock is the pin tumbler lock. Enclosed in a doorknob, these devices contain spring-loaded pins of varying sizes, which must be pushed upward before the knob can be turned to open the door. When the correct key is inserted into a pin tumbler lock, the grooves on the key's blade push the pins up to the precise height needed to allow the inner chamber to turn. Pin tumbler locks are popular because they are relatively secure for most residential applications and generally inexpensive. Since the entire locking mechanism in this device is contained in a single cylinder, pin tumbler locks are also very easy to swap in and out. This comes in handy in apartment buildings, for example, where locks may need to be changed frequently as tenants come and go.
Pin tumbler locks come in a number of configurations. In residential environments, they are the primary mechanism for operating knob locks and deadbolts. Most exterior doors on homes and apartment buildings will have at least one of each of these locks. Knob locks are quick to open and can be convenient when minimal security is acceptable, but they are very easily forced open. When paired with a deadbolt, the door becomes much harder to open. Deadbolts work by driving a thick metal rod into the door frame, which prevents most quick methods of defeating locks, like using a shim or brute force. Still, deadbolts aren't impenetrable, as they can be lockpicked or defeated with much stronger ramming force.
Other common types of residential locks include mortise locks, which combine the action of a doorknob and deadbolt in one. Mortise locks engage a deadbolt with the turn of the key, just as normal. But upon unlocking, the doorknob will open in tandem with the deadbolt. These locks tend to be much stronger than traditional deadbolt designs, but are often harder to install and thus more expensive.
Finally, there's the "jimmy-proof" deadbolt, a type of lock often found in older residences. These locks engage a metal rod that fits into a separate chamber outside of the door frame, rather than through the frame. While its design is simple, it has many advantages over traditional deadbolts or mortise locks. It is impervious to being pried open like many deadbolt systems could be, hence the "jimmy-proof" name. It is also typically harder to pick, and is very inexpensive.
When a lock stops working, no matter where it is in your home or office, it's likely to be a source of frustration. However, it's rare for a lock to suddenly fail to open without exhibiting some signs beforehand.
Common lock problems include issues opening or engaging the lock, or difficulty securing a door in the proper position to lock it.
Since locks are essential security devices that might be used multiple times per day, they are bound to wear out eventually. Rekeying or replacing locks can be done on your own in some cases, but may require a professional locksmith.
When a lock is rekeyed, the cylinder containing the tumbler and pins is removed from its enclosure and replaced with a new cylinder. This is often done when a new tenant moves into an apartment that was previously occupied, but it may also be necessary if a lock needs to be replaced.
Replacing all components of a cylinder lock, or working with locks that don't use a pin tumbler system, requires a different procedure for replacement. Installing a new lock of the same type will be the most straightforward option.
If you want a new lock that is different from your old set, more advanced installation is required, and you may want to consider hiring a professional for the job.
The term locksmith traditionally referred to people who designed and built locks, but today is generally used for those who repair and replace locks. Locksmiths can be available on-call to help people if they're locked out of their home or apartment.
If you've lost your keys or are otherwise unable to enter a locked building that you normally have access to, you will need to call your local locksmith. To save money and ensure you're hiring a reputable contractor, it may help to do some research on locksmiths in your area ahead of time, so you can be prepared if you need to call one.
Upon arrival to your home, a locksmith should ask you to prove that it is in fact your residence. They should also be able to unlock most common locks without requiring them to be drilled or completely replaced. Be sure to obtain an invoice that lists all charges before agreeing to pay.
Locks are ubiquitous around the world, which means the skills to service them are always in demand. Becoming a locksmith could be a rewarding career opportunity, but like any other job, will require a bit of preparation.
Locksmiths do not generally require formal education, but need to undergo extensive hands-on training and possibly certification. Locksmiths-in-training can receive foundational knowledge and skills through programs offered at technical colleges or vocational schools. These would include basic courses on lock mechanics and manipulation, along with general skills like business management.
From there, most trainees seek an apprenticeship, where they work alongside a professional locksmith. This allows them to gain experience in the field. It can also put them on a course toward certification, which involves a standardized procedure that, once completed, allows locksmiths to legally conduct business in their state.
Successful locksmiths need to be skilled with their hands and in the use of tools. While these skills are essential for the day-to-day tasks that a locksmith performs, they also benefit immensely from being personable and able to work with people to solve problems.
There are a number of trade associations and organizations for locksmiths that may help them find work, receive training and connect with like-minded business partners. These organizations may also help consumers find a reputable locksmith. Locksmith trade associations in the U.S. include:
