“Fantastic Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

The Patacones are to die for. Whatever they put in the garnishing sauce is mouth watering. Love this place!

You got to visit Amazonas, this place is fantastic. Awesome fresh Latin cuisine. Packed by local business people in to get a quick bite at a decent price. Good atmosphere. Clean.

“Lucked out at finding this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

It was by accident that my husband and I found this place. When we walked insdie it was confusing as to if we seat ourselves or wait to be seated. We then saw that towards the back of the building is where the Order Here sign was. The food is cafeteria style, do not let this keep you from going. Each and every item we had was delicious. Even the veggies that looked like your average stemed vegetable medley packed a grat vibrant taste. The restaurant itself is very beautifully decorated and clean.

“Quick and good Latin fare from Venezuelans.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

I have gone here around four times or so.

Very cheap food, very friendly servers. The food is already cooked you just picked which ones you want in your plate like mall places do. The shredded beef (ropa vieja style) is tasty, so is their rice-and-beans (congri).

Their fried yuccas are not that great though. I am Cuban so everything they sell I've had Cuban style. Everything tastes different but still good. So when I want Latin food with a flavor variation, here's where I go!

“Great food, quick and inexpensive - too bad it's for lunch only”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

This is a great place for weekday lunch (see below). Very good Latin food (slow-cooked meats, beans, plantains, yucca, what-have-you). They have all the standards so this is a great place to try a wide variety of Latin/South American-style dishes. Try the potato ball for an appetizer.

I was disappointed to find they're closed on the weekends. They also recently changed their hours to be only open for weekday lunch, so we can't get dinner there anymore.
