Delicious food and great service

Me and my husband went during lunch (dinner menu was also available). There was a good variety of different kinds of food and even vegetarian dishes. Everything was very good and we will definitely be back.

This restaurant has a good menu, including gluten-free options. Service was attentive throughout and we will certainly go back there when we are next in the area

We were on a long road trip and stopped to have a meal here...the Cuban Club sandwich is an extremely fresh ciabatta bun and tender pork with BBQ sauce on the side with crunch Sweet Potato Fries...truly delicious. Also the portion is large enough for two people. The Watermelon Chimichurri Salad is also delicious. We would not recommend the Squash... More

This grill was a delightful surprise. We expected little and found much. TripAdvisor travelers said it was a great restaurant and it was. It is hard to find. It can be noisy (although the tables are not close together, there is just a lot of people noise and hard walls). It is even confusing finding the front door. But the... More

A place we having been going to for a while and again, the food and service was great. The food is Cuban/South American fare. One of the go to dishes is the Pork Panama Dinner. If you have room for Desert, the Chimichuri (SP) is awesome. Just go........

Looking for something more interesting than steak or barbecue, I stopped here for an early dinner while spending one night in Tehachapi. The restaurant is 8 minutes from the center of town in a suburban strip mall, but it's easy to find. The menu is decidedly fusion: a mix of Central and South American-inspired dishes. My Pork Panama was very... More
