The place is famous, but with terrible white bright light, ugly Kitsch furniture. The food is stuck in the 80 ties concept, fried or overcooked

Came here for a quick lunch after meetings and was recommended to try the typical meal of Colombia. It was strange - crumbled meat, rice, potato, bread, avocado, a bowl of mashed beans, fried egg and plantain - and the piece de resistance being some crispy fried pork back fat. Bizarre but it worked.

My second time with Mondongos. This time Laureles.Still not blown away. Had the sancocho. It's much better the place two doors over. it's a bit cheaper at Mondongos. They have an outdoor carry out service that can be a 15 min wait to order. the most popular local chain for regional food. You shouldn't pass it up if you only... More

My friend and I went here on our first day in Medellin to try authentic Colombian food. The Mondongos soup was amazing even for my friend who truer tripe for the first time and the avocados are the biggest and tastiest I've had in my life. Would definitely go back.

Very tasty. I had the chicken! It was amazing. Can't get over how big their avocados are. Everything tasted so fresh. The service was good too.

After catching up on some much needed rest from flights at crazy hours and long airport layovers, I ventured out for lunch. Mondongo's came highly recommended, and the closest location was within walking distance of my apartment. I had to try the mondongo, of course, which is a traditional Colombian soup made with cut up tripe and slow cooked with... More
