Really fantastic. It is clear that the chef really cares. Everything is perfect! You can tell from the little details like how they cut the food that everything is perfect. This place is amazing. Good prices too! Very clean!

Delicious from another country. The food transports you to Central America. Best plantains I have ever eaten. We sat at an outside table and enjoyed every bite from empanadas to chimichurri.

As a suggestion from a friend in St. Louis, she said to try Fritanga. It's off the beaten path from downtown or Delmar for example. Tried the churrasco nica (grilled skirt steak) with chimichurri sauce and it was so flavorable that I could not put...More
