Ajiaco for Halloween's hangover

El Mega Chuzo is a small strip retail business that we stumbled upon as we discovered the DENNYS was closed. Unlike other businesses in the same strip, there were diners there. We ordered the skewer entrees which were tasty, fresh and came with salad, plantain or corn cake sides. The salad had a nice sweet honey mustard dressing. Glasses of... More

We are on vacation and this has been the best restaurant yet! Great service and awesome food! We loved the arepas, pepitos and tostones. Our picky eater liked the hot dog and devoured it.

I've visited twice with my family and have enjoyed both visits. Having never eaten Columbian food we were unsure what to order, but it was all good. The one downside for me was the tip being added to the village automatically.

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
