This is a great place to eat because it is "REAL" not some place serving Mexican food cooked by Americans. Real food cooked by Latins with real Latin seasonings. You can enjoy food there that you will not find anywhere else in Elkins. How about shrimp soup bet you can not find that in West Virginia. The relax atmosphere is wonderful. everyone from suits to T shirts are welcome here. It is a real treat because once you step inside you are in a another world. It is a world that is friendly and easy to fit into. The food might be different but it is all very good. The prices are reasonable and you can get a lunch portion anytime of the day. It is a very welcoming place in this small West Virginia town.

This was our first attempt at Authentic Venezuelan cuisine. The food was very good and the staff was nice. I really enjoyed the Hot Chicken soup, I could have taken the whole pot home with me. The prices are very reasonable and its well worth a trip. But do not expect a quiet romantic dinner. The families kids were running through the restaurant with play guns and neighborhood friends where coming in and out.

The arepas are great but the tilapia tacos are horrible. The food is generally better when the chef owner Derdlim is present. The atmosphere is romantic and there is music by local musicians some nights.
