“Join the Madness”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014

I went here the other day with a few of my classmates. The food was on point. The service was on par, the arepas were super tasty and the empanadas were, well. . . crazy. I've never been to South America, but I bet this cuisine is pretty authentic. I highly recommend.

“What a great new addition to the Boulvard!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

We ate dinner here last night.
The "party Arepa" was large and stuffed with pulled pork. The pumpkin soup was a great surprise on the varied menu options. It's so nice to try new foods and the service was excellent.
Andrea explained each plate and then gave us a sample of some items just to try.

We will be back. If you want to break away from the norm and want some great food--GO!

“Go! Just Go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

If you've a craving for something just a little different from the usual Mexican food found along the Blvd, this is a great choice. Well presented street food!

The tequeños arrived quickly - little breadsticks with melted cheese inside. Homemade and so good. The arepas were delicious - perfectly golden and crispy. The pulled pork was chunky and perfectly textured. The gouda cheese is a nice touch, adding a more complex layer of flavor. The beef arepa was similar - slow cooked to perfection beef! The chicken empanada was fried crispy deliciousness - arguably better than the potato and cheese one. Their Venezuelen take on a tamale was interesting, with olives and raisins for some flavor and texture variety. Even the rice and beans were a step up from most places - the yellow rice was super tasty.

The desert empanadas, filled with caramel sauce would have been good, but the ice-cream and then drizzles of chocolate, caramel, and white sauces made it incredible goodness! Great to share.

In short, everything looked, tasted, and felt home made.

If they were open late at night and served alcoholic drinks they would become a regular place for me. They do plan to do BYOB at some time, and eventually get a liquor license.

You need to go.
