Good food!

I've only ordered takeout from here. But everything I have ordered has always been good! I love how the chicken is so tender and flavorful every time I order it. And whatever sauce that is that comes with it is spicy and an excellent accompaniment. They really know what they're doing! I will... read more

If you are looking for a great, casual place that serves consistently delicious Colombian/ Spanish food & at such sensible prices that you can frequently go there with your family to enjoy great 'like home made' food, then this is the place. My husband and I have been coming here for more than a decade because the food remains just... More

easily located on old country Rd in Westbury, this restaurant is very deceiving from the exterior appearance. Once inside the help is wonderful. The lunch / dinner menu is superb. many of the dishes and gtoppings are just like home. My standard lunch meal is the arroz con pollo -chicken and rice. Also available with shrimp. The campanadas are also... More

My wife and I have been here many times and have never been disappointed. The food is fresh and delicious. The service is excellent and efficient. The atmosphere is friendly but nothing fancy. Always busy.

This restaurant has been somewhere I have wanted to try out for a while because of my love for Columbian food. I finally went and I enjoyed every bit of the experience. Apart from the fried red snapper which seemed to be to be a plain fried fish, just with the bones, the food was amazing. One item I craved... More

I have heard of one hour or more if you go prime time..The place in nothing fancy but the food is outrageous. My wife ordered the shrimp in garlic sauce and I had the skirt steak. Both were excellent... More

Every single time I come back to the 'States I MUST visit this place. It used to be a diner back when I was a kid, but for the last 10+ years it's been the home to the hands down best Colombian restaurant I've been to outside of Medellin. The roasted chicken is moist, seasoned perfectly and delicious. The skirt... More

How to even start!? Went for lunch it was super crowded but to our surprise we had a very short wait. Staff is super courteous and orders come fast. They have a great selection of Columbian favorites and general Hispanic food. Prices are good and food is delicious. It was exactly what you want: flavor, good portions, good ambience, good... More

We have driven past Pollo El Paisa a hundred times and every time its packed. This time we figured we would give it a try - now we understand why it's crowded. The food is very good, portions large and prices are right. My wife had the rotis chicken - moist / fell off the bone - delicious. I had... More
