The best there is in Colombian food in the tri-state area, great family setting, as well as a bar area for singles, and live music on the weekends...

    The bull dog drinks will get you there on the first glass :) . This is Columbia fan support central. If there's a soccer game involving them- this is the place to be. Food is average.

    The margarita rocks! Nice place.

    Try the Bandeja Paisa (they call it Bandeja el Basurero). But before that make sure you are very very hungry.

  • Kimmie O.

    The bathroom is kind of an adventure lol. Service wasn't too great though

    Be careful of the Jack Mojito! DELICIOUS but DANGEROUS!

    The place was empty and it took them forever to bring out our food. Had to look for the waitress to pay because she disappeared. Wasn't impressed.

    Great food, fun if loud atmosphere. We were there during a soccer final so it was crazy, but we didn't mind once the food came!

    Prepare for awful service if you are not hispanic. Waitress left my table in mid order to say hi to her friend. And didnt stop by our table once the food was delivered.

    Service here is amazing. And the women... Absolutely beautiful.

    Typical authentic Colombian dishes here (or at least occasional Colombian takes on dishes that are Peruvian or Ecuadorian like cerviche). Delish & fun environment, but more pricey that it should be.

    Stephanie P. · January 28, 2013

    First waiter doesn't take my order. Secondly we never got our "free" empanaditas. I recommend not coming here in the afternoon. Horrible service.

    Jose Negron · July 28, 2012

    Don't expect any service at all if you are not Latino. I don't leave remarks like this lightly, this is the 3rd time I've been in this place and it was always very clear that i was not wanted.

    I used to go there when they first opened. I have had better Colombian food, but it is a very chill spot to hang and drink at the bar.
