Great food and wonderful service. Tough to beat! It was my first time there so I was expecting to it be OK but they outdid themselves in every fashion. It also helped that they had my favorite wine on the menu.

Everything we ordered was so dull of flavor. The plantain chips and salsa were out of this world! Soup was delicious and our entrees were fresh. The best part was the homemade coconut ice cream. We will be back!!

I normally do not like tres leches, but here I could be my entire meal. I will never try it anywhere else - this is the only and only tres leches.

Had high expectations and had heard good things about Churrascos but came away disappointed. Two people had to send crab claws back because they were cold I ordered the special steak. Seasoning was a bit over done and made it hard to tell quality of...More
