I live in the area and decided to stop in for late breakfast on my way back home from a meeting this morning. I regularly order dinner for delivery from this restaurant, so I trusted that the breakfast would also be good. The place is set up like a sports bar. Clean and inviting. I was greeted by a waitress... More

I went the first-time and let me tell you I was very disappointed. I really was expecting more from this place; I order a sishkebabs mixt but it was terrible. I told the waiter and she didn't care. I will never come back to this place.

Though I love Cuban food, I am always interested in exploring. This Colombian/Venezuelan food restaurant was a nice change of pace. Their "tostones/patacones" with dipping sauce were phenomenal and their churrasco was worth every penny. Nice special on buckets of beer and empanadas is also a must! Enjoy...

Man, what mojitos!!!! Tall and plenty of alcohol! I won't even try and remember food names, but we got empenadas, skewers of shrimp & chicken, etc...hot and delicious! I am now officially addicted to sweet plantains, thanks to them. Wonderful experience, great service!

Every visit to the Miami area I have to visit this restaurant! I have had Cuban empanadas and Colombian empanadas are by far the best, especially from El Mega Chuzo! Before flying back home, I always order at least a dozen frozen chicken empanadas to take back! The ají picante sauce is a must with the empanadas which is hot... More

They take forever to serve your food. And when I say forever is FOREVER. Two hours to get your food and either is cold when you get it or they forgot your food. The food is delicious but the service is TERRIBLE!!! Worst service EVER!!!
