Mistake Made in Restaurant Review

RECEIVED Thu., May 12, 2005

Dear Ms. Wood,
    I have lived in Austin since 1979. I have had the nachos at the Armadillo and the chicken-fried steak at the Stallion. Over the years I regarded you as someone who was knowledgeable about the local restaurant scene. Recently you proved that to be wrong with your review of El Pollo Feliz ["Cheap Eats," Food, April 15]. In the first place, Guadalupe Street and Airport Boulevard do not intersect. There is no such address as 6801 Guadalupe. You were apparently thinking about the intersection of North Lamar Boulevard and Airport Boulevard. However, there has never been a restaurant at that location called the Hamburger Haven. The name of that restaurant was Airport Haven.
    I suppose everyone makes mistakes now and then, but I expected better from you.
    Here is a bit of advice – if you want a truly fine meal for a reasonable price, go to El Patio at 2938 Guadalupe and order the chicken enchiladas. Good luck to you!
