All the typical Nicaraguan dishes served in a quaint colonial ambiance. Quality Meats and chicken are chargrilled for that unique flavor. Excellent, friendly service. This a great neighborhood restaurant, one of several of a small local chain.

If you like meat with chimichurry either churrasco or other meats, this is a good chic at affordable prices. The jalapeño sauce is highly recommended.

For the last 25 years, our Latin American restaurant has specialized in serving authentic Nicaraguan and Central American style cuisine to the area. Our house special and most popular dish, the churrasco which is a tenderloin meat filet, is accompanied with our favorite chimichurri sauce, gallo pinto and sweet plantains. We don't stop there, we also have chicken and seafood available. If you're looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, our tres leches dessert is a crowd favorite. Soaked in three different kinds of milks and topped with marsh mellow like heavy cream, it is sure to put a nice cap to a wonderful meal. We've continued to be a great family place to dine with live music on weekend. If you're looking to host a special event with a small or large group we can accommodate you. We can easily hold 80+ people at our restaurant. Come see us today, we look forward to having you as our guest. Bienvenidos!
