My wife and I decided to try a new restaurant called Cali Viejo and were completely surprised by not only the food but the atmosphere. Brandon is has so many restaurant choices that you sometimes get in a rut and eat at the same ones because you know they are good. Cali Viejo had a great selection, excellent service and... More

I went into this restaurant and found it to be very clean. There were only Hispanic customers in the place, which told me I have come to the right place. I got the feeling that the staff was surprised to see me walk in, but they were extremely helpful and unbelievably nice. There was no problem with a language barrier... More

Great food ! Small bakery/resturant but the steak was excellent. Second time and I will come back to eat the steak (Churrasco con chimichuri). Service was good and clean restaurant.

Ran down facility, it may have been a better visit had I been able to speak Spanish. Language barrier was difficult, chicken was dry, rice was dry, service was borderline unacceptable. Paid for meal, did not eat much of it. Was in/out of the restaurant within 30 minutes due to dislike of the facility.

Overall, food was fresh and flavorful. Two doors, the regulars and the "expensive one." Same kitchen, different presentation. We always go to the regular side, maybe 10 to 15 % shipper. Plates are plentiful, servers are friendly. My son loves their Churrasco. I love their rotisserie chicken and some of the Colombian's typical plates. I have been to this restaurant... More

Stopped by this small Columbian restaurant that you can easily pass by on busy Highway 60 in Brandon. I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich with green plantains as the bread instead of Cuban bread. It was delicious! Their fried sweet plantains were probably some of the best I've had. Great, quick, and cheap lunch spot. I'll go back for sure.... More
