Really really really impressed by the food here! I haven't had anything I don't like. If you've never tried fried plantains, I highly recommend you do so here.

I’ve never been disappointed here. It gets a little bit loud, and it can be very busy at meal times, especially on weekends, but it is absolutely worth the wait! I recommend the chaulafan.

The food here is absolutely incredible! Very flavorful and tantalizing to the tongue! Service can be a little slow at times, but that's because the restaurant is so popular. Recommend this place highly!

Arrived at 9 p.m. for a late dinner and pulled into the back parking lot. Seemed dead outside but the inside was hopping. Food was great and service was excellent. Worth a stop.

Excellent, unique South American dishes with a great atmosphere. Worth the wait. Yuca fries were a hit as an app.
