Venezuelan food and it is good. This place offers a unique setting in the small town of Elkins West Virginia. Much more interesting than tacos so see the menu. It is located in a home on a side street. Parking is all on the street but that is not usually a problem. The flavors are delightful and... read more

Food was great. Menu had lots of choice and reasonably priced. Best part was uniqueness of the restaurant. How many places have authentic Venezuelan dishes? You won't regret trying this place out. LIve music twice a week.

Excellent food and service, authentically South American in a charming old house. The Cachapas are memorably good. They were having Wi-fi problems at one point, but they seem to have straightened that out. This is, I think, the best restaurant for the money in Elkins. Be aware that a LOUD amateur band sometimes plays in the evenings. If that's not... More

My husband and I have eaten here a few times and each time it has been great. I love the pork cachapa, it's amazing. They have probably the best margarita I've had. Very authentic Latin food. We will absolutely eat here again. Looking forward to our next trip to Elkins just to eat here.

On a trip to Snowshoe, we stopped here for dinner based on online reviews. The appetizers were so good, we never got to the main menu which looked wonderful. The cachapas (think soft taco with shredded meat on a sweet, soft tortilla) are the bomb. The process were very reasonable as well. If you want to avoid chains, this was... More

This family run Latin restaurant has reasonable prices and an interesting menu. But, both the food and servers are inconsistent. We have eaten here four times, both when busy and as the sole table and want to love this interesting spot. A raucous back room suits college folk while the front room houses quiet dining. Because of slow service, incorrect... More

Authentic Venezuelan food, great local beers on tap plus a complete bar, servers are top notch, and the music is always first rate. The owners take great pride in pleasing their customers and it shows.

We found this on T.A. and decided we must try! Staff was very friendly and attentive. Menu was extensive. Three were in our party for lunch, we had a hard time choosing! We ordered a taco salad with beef, a chicken chimichanga and the arepa and an empanada combo. Our meals were out in a flash! The taco salad shell... More
