This restaurant offers tables for diners who pick up counter orders and eat there or you can get '"to go" orders. Very fairly priced for the amount of food you get. The shrimp soup or Chupe de camaron in particular can easily feed two people...More

Chicken is the best, but you can actually eat many delicious dishes from the menu such as anticuchos, chupe de camarones, lomo saltado. You have to give it a try!!

Wanted to find a new place to eat and saw this place. All I can say is wow the food was plenty and left stuffed. I would pay 2 times more for the amount of food at other places. It is a self serve place...More

This little hole in the wall is a good find! The food is classic of south american cuisine. We ordered the white corn and cheese as well as a nice chicken meal. Flat out delicious. The service was a little slow, but then again, it...More
