My husband and I love this place! Everything here is cooked to order, top quality products, and tastes delicious!! I like the arepas much more than the empanadas. They are a bit softer with more filling. The garlic sauce —- I could just drink it....More

I had the shredded chicken and a shredded beef empanada, both with cheese. They were prepared quickly and were quite delicious.

Liked tamale wrapped in leaf with beef, olives, raisins, beef empanada was deep fried, greasy but good. Lots of typical South American dishes

I so wanted to give this place a 5-star because the food is definitely worth it. The arepas were unbelievably delicious as well as the empanadas. But the service was lousy. I had to get up and ask for refills twice. I was hoping for...More
