Great place for a Columbian meal. We came here for lunch over Christmas week. They were playing Star Wars which was great. The waiter even let us choose which of the Star Wars movies we wanted to watch. Pretty great. The Arepa vegeteriana was awesome....More

Our server, Eva, was so helpful in directing us to an authentic Colombian meal. The food was delicious and so reasonably priced. This is BYO and there is a corking fee, which worked very well for us. Try it, you'll like it!

This place has good Colombian food and drinks. However, they do not serve alcoholic beverages. This is a BYOB, so bring your beer or bottle and sit there and drink and wait for your meals.

A refreshing experience. It's different, but familiar enough to please even the non adventurous. I had the steel city arepa. It was the best pulled pork I've probably ever had. Lots of flavor without being covered in sauce, and the accompanying sauces they serve on...More

A new and nice place in Southside. Service was excellent. Everyone who helped us made us feel at home. The menu is not extensive and includes basic Colombian staple foods. We ordered 2 chicken empanadas and a beef arepa (vieja ropa), which was enough for...More

Good price for the special plate of the day, my choice was Sancocho de carne, but there was another option, Ajiaco santafereño. For $10.50 you could taste a traditional plate very popular for most of Colombians.
