A little piece of Colombia in the middle of westbury NY

The place looks like a little hole in the wall, but inside it will surprise you. Staff is attentive, and the food is delicious. All of the rice and chicken or shrimp are wonderful. The steak dinner is superb. The salads that come with the entrees are just so so. They do not serve liquor. Get... read more

This place is packed on the weekends because they are so good! I choose to go during the weekdays instead...but sometimes even then they are really busy as well. Why? It's their rotiserrie chicken...so awesome! Another option is their steaks and the platenero mountain dish with carne asada. There's rice and beans, griddle cake, port chicharron, a sliced avocado and... More

Generous portions, real bang for your buck not to mention delicious. My favorite Latin restaurant on the island. Recommend the skirt steak comes with salad, rice and beans. Yum! If you like seafood, can't go wrong with paella, salmon or shrimp with garlic sauce and the whole fried fish. It's a small diner and gets extremely busy Friday thru Sunday... More

My family loves to do takeout from Pollos El Paisa! The rotisserie chicken is delicious, the fried flounder is very tasty but my favorite dish is the grilled skirt steak. The chicken is moist and tender, the skirt steak is marinated with great flavor and the Paella tastes spot on. Most of the dishes are a complete dinner with a... More

We love taking out from Pollos El Paisa. All of the dishes taste great and give you that authentic Columbian flavor. Do yourself a favor and visit.

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 come here again!

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
