It is hard to say which empinada is the best. Try them all it’s well worth it. Each one is identified on the crust, which is a nice touch. The plantains are also excellent cooked both ways. I also really like the tropical juices. They...More

Featuring only 6-7 tables, Quiero is owned by a Colombian/Chilean couple and features many traditional Latin dishes, plus a number with an unusual twist. Arepas, tostones, empanadas, quesadillas, Cuban sandwiches,...More

I’ve been driving by Quiero Cafe for about a year, never stopping in because I didn’t know what type of food they sell. My daughter wanted to try it and now I make a point of going at least once a week. The ingredients are...More
