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

I have to admit I've been in here more than once. Their "bandeja paisa" is amazing and every time I went there I order the same dish. I'm kinda eclectic when it's about food, but I couldn't order another one since I felt in love with that dish...

We had never had Columbian food before but our waitress was very patient and helpful. The food was homey and delicious. I felt like I was eating authentic family style food as if I was in someone' s kitchen. Sorry that I don't live in the area but if I did, I would be a regular customer.

I have never been to a restaurant where you feel so welcomed and at your own home. Carlos and Vicki do a magnificent job at making this place a comfy stress free environment. And the food is out of this world! My family and I have been coming here for years and this is by far the BEST Spanish food... More

La Estancia de Luisa has great food and great service. The chicken and steak dishes are especially well prepared. I am not a big fan of deep fried foods, but the Empanadas are the best I've ever had. I would highly recommend them as an appetizer. We were pleasantly surprised by the side salads that accompanied the meals. The plantains... More

After reading so many great reviews, we had to try it for ourselves. Located in a strip mall, this small but inviting restaurant is not a place you'll just drive by. We sat down and were greeted by whom I assume to be one of the owners. Couldn't be more friendlier. I had the shredded beef and my wife had... More

The food is very good and great service. We enjoyed the dinner menu especially the plantain soup and fried plantains. The desert was also excellent.

Received a warm welcome our first time there. Food is fresh and delicious! Believe it is run by family and friends and it shows! If looking to avoid a big "Chain" experience definitely give LA Estancia de Luisa a try!
