Cesar's is in the same strip mall as the celebrated Enrique's, but deserves attention as well thanks to its great Latin-American cuisine. This is not Mexican food-- don't come here expecting tacos and chips. You come here to order dishes representing the cuisines of countries...More

I stopped and got the shredded pork classic Colombian Calentao. Seasoned rice with onion, pork sausage and more. It was delish. It also comes in vegetarian and I highly recommend you try one.

Some time ago we spotted the Empanada signs. Only recently did we decide to try some. We selected the beef and potato empanada, and it was done to perfection. While we were eating we noticed that they had Kobe Beef Hamburgers. This was a must...More

Dinner of Jalapeño Fingers, Caribbean Rice and a glass of Merlot "Lapostolle". $32.35. The Merlot was mediocre at best, served in a water glass. Not at all worth the $9 price tag, maybe $3 max. The Jalapeño Fingers were good but it is the first...More

The place is small and cozy and the staff is friendly. I've been here several times trying a different meal every time. The pork, meat, chicken and rice meals are good. The arepas with chicken and ropa vieja are okay although I'd rather have the...More

This place is an amazing spot for lunch. The food is amazing!! Latin American Influenced cuisine but has a twist of Contemporary American. I recommend the Chicken Milenesa Sandwich with either Lentil Soup or Papas. Must Try! Oh but what's even better is that the...More

Seven of us went here for a casual family birthday brunch last weekend. Everyone else in the family had been before, but this was the first time for husband and me. The atmosphere is casual, but the service is good and the food is outstanding....More
