“Awesome Colombian experience”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Family all went here our last night of vacation. Food was TOO plentiful, and oh, so tasty. Staff was friendly. Atmosphere was family-friendly as well. Ask for typical Colombian favorites. They will oblige. Shocked at the low price at the end. We were very stuffed and happy.

“Soups was terrible.”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

We went to mega chuzo in August 2012, the place is nice inside,clean but it has a bad smell of like a drain is broken or water is leaking. We ordered a fish soup and chicken soup and both were bad... Just water with fish and chicken flavor. The grilled chicken was good, the steak chuzo was ok, the meat a little hard. I think that for Colombian food is overpriced at this restaurant, I'm Colombian and I have been in many restaurants around the country and this is a little overpriced.
Tip is included on the bill.

“Excellent Colombian Cuisine”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

The food was spectacular and the atmosphere was very relaxing. This place is situated adjacent to Sunny Isles Beach on the popular Collins Ave. I ordered the fried green plantains with shredded chicken and beef with a spicy garlic/onion sauce (3) for only $6.75...delicious!! The cocktails are all $5 and the drinks are super good for the price. The kids loved their Colombian foot long hotdog with crumbled chips and sauces on the top. The hubby enjoyed his shredded chicken hoagie...long story, we left the place full and with lots of leftovers. They close at 1:00 am during the weekdays and at 6:00 am on the weekends...awesome hours for night owls!! If you are every strolling down Collins, you have to stop by for some fantastic Colombian food!!

“Good Colombian food”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

Not a wide selection, but an interesting one. From some of the traditional to the typical fast food

The place is very spacious, the service is not bad at all, but some times depend on the waitress. The wait for food is not typically long. I would not say is the best Colombian food in South Florida, but definitively is not bad.

This food was great! The Bandeja Paisa was just like the one I have had in Colombia. Service was good too.
