Since I was in the area I decided to try this restaurant for lunch. The interior needs some maintenance, the walls and molding looks like they have not seen paint for a long time, stains and soiled areas on the walls and molding, not an appealing sight for a food establishment. I decided to order to give the food a... More

There gift certificate process and records are horrible. I purchased a gift certificate from them and lost it.

This is a great authentic Colombian restaurant. The wait staff is very nice, but speak limited English. However, the menu is bilingual. The margaritas are phenomenal, but don't drink too many...

great setting, good food but the heavy musty smell of mildew or mold hit you as soon as you walk in. I dont get it there are no carpets. It takes away from the experience.

We have been visiting this restaurant for many years. We all love it here. When we have visitors from outside the country we also take them here. So far every single person we have taken here has loved the food. We just left and there, had a great time today. There was a 30min wait on a Sunday afternoon. The... More
