For the last 25 years, our Latin American restaurant has specialized in serving authentic Nicaraguan and Central American style cuisine to the area. Our house special and most popular dish, the churrasco which is a tenderloin meat filet, is accompanied with our favorite chimichurri sauce, gallo pinto and sweet plantains. We don't stop there, we also have chicken and seafood available. If you're looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, our tres leches dessert is a crowd favorite. Soaked in three different kinds of milks and topped with marsh mellow like heavy cream, it is sure to put a nice cap to a wonderful meal. We've continued to be a great family place to dine with live music on weekend. If you're looking to host a special event with a small or large group we can accommodate you. We can easily hold 80+ people at our restaurant. Come see us today, we look forward to having you as our guest. Bienvenidos!

Great Churrasco

Excellent meat dishes in true Nicaraguan style. Try the Vigoron appetizer!!! The steak portions are true to the ounces shown on the menu.

My wife's family is from Nicaragua and this is the place we always go to. It's a great atmosphere in the evenings with the music. If you get the appetizer sampler you can have many unique dishes. The gallo pinto is the best that I've had at any restaurant thus far. If you want authentic for a little more expensive... More

Very noisy and loud. Food and Service is OK, but you must be bilingual, otherwise you will have a problem. Always busy and a bit pricey for what you get

If you like to eat Latin Food, then this is the place you must visit. When you walk in to this restaurant, you walk into an old fashion courtyard in a far away latin country. They have a large water fountain adorning the center of the restaurant. Private booths along the wall look like little casitas (houses). It seems as... More
