Kids are Gone--How to Prioritize Triangle Eating Opportunities?

I would call Panciuto the best, as well as most pleasant, restaurant in the Triangle.

California Pizza Stones?

Does anybody have experience with this brand of pizza stone? The great appeal is the stones come in any size you like.

Durham: Mex. Grocery on Roxboro -- name?

Can anyone tell me the name of the large Mexican supermarket on Roxboro, not far from Super Tacqueria. Thanks.

El Paraiso in Durham has changed hands

I have to disagree. I went there a few weeks ago for the first time and found it shockingly ordinary. Everything was frozen; the tortillas were premade and refrigerated. I had come directly from Los Comales on a kind of tacqueria crawl, and the difference in quality could not have been more plain.

I also had a bad experience at La Vaquita not long ago. The tacos were fine, but they took about 20 minutes to prepare. There were a few other people waiting for food, all looking at their watches and clearly feeling annoyed. I've had other people mention to me that La Vaquita takes an unaccountably long time to serve a few simple tacos. At Los Comales you have your food in about 30 seconds.
