This is a must try restaurant. It is a gem in this small town. Service was exceptional - family run with pride. Food was delicious and plentiful. Only wish they had a larger choice of wine selections. Were given two bottles to choose from, a cab and a malbec. Both choices were good ones but would have like a little... More

Do not be fooled by this restaurant's outside appearance. It is tucked in a strip-mall over-shadowed by Winn-Dixie and displays a rather plain facade. Inside hides a place with that was just delightful in its service and culinary surprises. I am no expert on South American cuisine, I do, however, love an adventure.This family-run place specializes in home-cooked Argentinian and... More

Great hidden gem! This is a family owned Columbian restaurant. The food is so GOOD. You must finish your dinner with their fabulous desert & espresso.

This was very good food, cooked with care and was very user-friendly to Anglos, since the waitress spoke near-perfect English and was justifiably proud of her country's excellent cuisine. Try the bandeja paisa, often viewed as the Colombian National dish. Luisa's version included a fried egg, an excellent Colombian-style sausage link, an entire slice of fried fresh (uncured) bacon, including... More

This is by far the best latin food in the area! Everything on the menu is flavorful and the presentations are gorgeous! The service is phenomenal and this restaurant gives you such a welcoming feeling. It's hard to find food close to this!

This has been my go-to lunch spot for quite a while now. For about 6-7 dollars + a discount from my employer, I usually eat soup, salad, rice, beans, plantains, and a different meat each time. I always arrive hungry and leave completely satisfied. Their hot sauce is also amazing! Along with great flavor and an amazing food/price ratio. The... More
