Adios Siete Mares
After ten years in business, Siete Mares Mexican & Nicaraguan Restaurant has closed up shop at 3204 South Grand. I wonder if the arrival of Qdoba up the street influenced their decision. Siete Mares was locally owned. Qdoba is owned by San Diego-based Jack in the Box. Siete Mares generally had slow service. Qdoba is a fast food establishment.

I had only eaten at Siete Mares a couple of times about five years ago, and I didn't find it worth going back to. I don't ever see myself going to Qdoba, though the 'fast food with liquor' angle is intriquing if only for its rarity.

I was excited to have authentic Nicaraguan food until I tasted it and, well, it was authentic, but like with all cuisine, sometimes authentic isn't as good as you'd think.

I guess I would have to agree. I liked the food, but then again I am not very picky, but I couldn't get my wife to go back more then once. Qdoba and Siete Mares were different types of establishments... but I guess it could have had an impact. I always hate to see a locally owned business close it's doors.
