Restaurant Review Roulette: Bravo’s Mexican Grill

August 11, 2010

To be reviewed this week is Bravo’s Mexican Grill, which appears to be a fairly standard Mexican restaurant in Cary.  Nothing stands out about the menu.  The website has the most god-awful sound ever, which I think is music, but it comes through as distortion (and I would hate it even if it were nice music).  The owners apparently have two other places in South Carolina, but I know nothing about those.

This is the type of place that screams for a review of 2 or 2.5 stars, but the teaser in today’s N&O suggests that it might be a bit better than that.  Maybe it’s their “Pollo Relleno” that is served with something called, “Creamy Broccoli Gravy.”  I have no clue, and the online reviews don’t provide any great insight, either.  Damn it, I hate guessing these places.  But I suspect that this place just might be better than mediocre, and that’s why my target is 3 stars.

5 stars — 2,000 to 1

4.5 stars – 250 to 1

4 stars — 25 to 1

3.5 stars — 3 to 1

3 stars — 5 to 4

2.5 stars —  2 to 1

2 stars — 5 to 1

1.5 stars — 7 to 1

1 star — 25 to 1

Let me know if you’ve eaten there.  And how many stars you think it will get.  And if you go back, please tell the owners to drop the music from the website!


Edit, August 13, 2010 — Hah, take that, you naysayers!  Bravo’s got 3 stars from the N&O.  And so what if there really weren’t any naysayers?  I just like to say that I’m right and create controversy when there really is none.
