You gotta try everything especially their oxtail entree (Rabo) and the empanadas! Cozy dinner atmosphere... pretty popular. We always find our friends from neighboring towns having dinner here. Staff is very friendly and accommodating.

I order lunch from here all the time from work and it's always good! I would expect the quality of the food when dining-in to be even better, but as far as take-out goes, I'm never disappointed. I always order the Minuta de Pescado sandwich,...More
