Really good overall value. Home style cooking and generous portions. Try the bakery/snack display for carry out or quick eats. more

Editorial review from Urbanspoon 4/3/2011

I have been wanting to try this restaurant for a long time and I think my expectations were alittle to high. \r \r I went in for take out and the first thing I noticed was The restaurant is very clean and orderly, see pic. The staff were friendly and the service was quick. \r \r I had the Pollo a la Crolla, a side of tostones, and two beef empanadas. The chicken was pounded thin topped with a creole sauce served with a salad with house dressing, I think, and white rice.I also asked for some hot sauce because I wasn't sure how this creole sauce was and I like my food spicy. Everything was packaged up within 15 minutes and I was gone. \r \r I went straight home and opened up the container. It smelled real good, but I didn't like that they put the salad in the same container as the hot food. The salad was warm and honestly it sucked. The chicken was tasty, but not as good a LaGranja. Nothing really stood out about the sauce or the chicken. The sauce was mild and I'm glad I got the hot sauce. The rice was ok and it came with some fried yuca. The yuca was very good especially after I put some hot sauce on it. Some of the tostones were overcooked and to hard to eat. The bright spot were the empanadas. Nice crispy exterior with some flavorful ground beef packed inside. \r \r Hmmmmm, mistake #1 I should have eaten the food there. I have to give them some slack for having take out because the food especially the salad would have tasted better. Also I could have returned the Tostones for some new ones if I stayed. I can't fully recommend this one right now. I'm going to have to go back and eat in house before I stick my rep on the line. Stay Hungry! more

Columbian Empanadas and chorizo are extra special. The ajiaco is great. This place is always busy any time of day. more

Boring food-Bad Service 1/8/2008

Food was low quality and service was bad. I took my girlfriend there and she was not happy. The crowd was really very loud and we could not even have a conversation because of the noise. The meal was cheap in price but also cheap in quality. I would not go back again and cannot recommend this place to anyone who wants a decent meal which you can eat in peace. Pros: low cost food Cons: poor tasting food; environment not quiet or relaxing more

Food was a disaster 12/12/2007

Great hopes for a real Colombian dinner turned into disappointment. Crowded, uncomfortable seats and food that tasted like fast-food left me feeling like I got ""ripped-off."" The food was cheap and I guess you get what you pay for. To top it off, the service was very slow. Pros: Cheap food Cons: Bad food and bad service more

Breakfast is great 3/13/2006

I have been here on numerous ocassions. The overall service is great, and pleasant servers. Breakfast is great but their coffee is not colombian is the american way a disappointment for coffee lovers like me. The two times I have had beef is tough. But all else is great. Like their natural juices, enpanadas and pandebonos. Pros: Good Parking, Pleasant atmosphere Cons: weekends is crowded more
