One last observation: near as I can tell, the mission of this website is to encourage tourists to try locally owned and operated businesses. It would appears that tourists, among others, seem to love Otates and that many people staying at all-inclusives make the effort to come into town to eat there. So what is the issue?

I started the thread as a discussion of how internet hype can snowball out of proportion and was using a specific example to try and make my point--that one little place should be ranking so high in tripadvisor, owned by Expedia, while other equally good or better local places were being completely ignored in that same venue.

As far as one thing I noticed on the Trip Advisor forum is that Wet Wendys is rated as the top restaurant. To me, I agree with opinons I have read that it is nothing more than a bar with a few tables on the street. I have read that Wet Wendys solicits good reviews on Trip Advisor , thus a top rating. The Trip Advisor ranking are nothing more than a popularity contest, as I understand it. They have nothing to do with the quality of the place.
But so many good cheap eats here, its always difficult for me to pick one.

I dont live far from them (a bit farther North than Carey) and back in 05 walked by it almost every night as that rental house was even closer. Normally I would walk the extra few blocks to Serras. At Otates I have tried the pastor, gringas, charros, queso fundido, arrecheras, chicken tacos, etc etc... The only thing 'I' care for there is the queso fundido,it's killer! But that is jmo. Not sayin' that at 3am I wouldn't go there with friends and eat just about anything jajajajaja. As others have stated there are a TON of other cheap local eats on the island and Otates is only one. Each place has its own flavor, speciality, atmosphere. It all just really depends on what you feel like that night/day. I think it is just so great to be able to walk to alot of different locations and eat for as cheap or cheaper than if you were to go to the Pelican and buy your own stuff to cook.
