Lol! Yah, the guacamole was a big deal for us too! The wife here makes her own, and I believe it to be the best I'd ever had.......until DRM. Even she was infatuated with it, it was soooooo good. It was the first thing she noticed on one of our trips this past year :( hopefully they'll get it back for our next!

If you asked for them to make you some Guac fresh I wonder if they would be able to or just serve you what they have? That is one of those things that we think is just better "on location"

When we were at RM over Halloween we found the guacamole to be sub par with way too much onion for our tastes. When the guac is good at RM we will have it with every meal if possible.

I mentioned this to Edilberto one day at lunch when he saw our uneaten (again) guacamole on our plates. The next day at lunch a peeled sliced avocado was presented to Diane as we ate. As we were enjoying it the reaction from several staff was as if it was GOLD. ??? We had no idea that the overall guacamole/avocado situation was as it was until reading this thread.

Hopefully the avocado situation has improved so that we can enjoy in house guac at RM once again. I'll review it after our February trip.

The avocado shortage has had more of an effect on PRICING than availability. At our favorite Mexican restaurant up here in NY, our go-to appetizer is fresh guacamole with shredded beef short rib (mmmm). Last time we ordered, we noticed an overwhelming amount of beef to guacamole ratio in the dish. When questioned, the waiter said that as per the chef, the MEAT is cheaper than the avacodos these days! It’s likely that in times of a shortage, the bulk of the supplies are diverted from Mexican resorts and going to the highest payers like us schmucks in the US...lol
