Nice place, good prices, and very good food.The only thing that i will change is the bread for the hot dogs. The one they use is very good but is not for hot dogs it takes away from the colombian hot dog experience.

This is the second Colombian restaurant I've visited and I loved it. You don't feel like you're in a restaurant, you feel like you're eating with friends or family. Their bakery is something you have to try, same with the Bandeja Paisa.

We went due to other reviews. Like some others, we have eaten next door at Mena's for years and never notice this place. The food was good and plentiful. The owners were very helpful with the unfamiliar menu. We were not big fans of the cheese rolls others have raved about. We will definitely return.

You mau expect very rich meal with a home made taste. Good selection of fresh fruit juice. Service is good and environment very informal.

Even though I might recommend it as "authentic" Colombian, I have had a few bad meals in Colombia as well. It is a mom & pop place located in the strip center by the fitness gym. Small but sufficient. Very friendly people in the restaurant but the food service is slow. The meats were left in the fryer too long... More

My family enjoys the bandeja paisa!! On Sunday we especially like the brunch styled menu calentaos. The place is small & full of energy! The owners are "hands-on" hard working as well as personable. We are always greeted and made to feel welcome. The menu is great. I wish there was another location closer to home. Also, the fresh baked... More

After lunch at Mena’s we strolled down to the Colombian bakery El Portal, which was only 50 feet away in the same strip mall. Neither of us had been there before. Om: Very mixed feelings about this place! It was clean, the guy that helped us was nice, and the food looked great. We tried a variety of baked goods,... More

The place is more of a casual bakery/cafe where you can relax, hang out, and order snacks or simple food. Coffee is just so-so; I suggest you bring your own. However, I found their almojabanas (cheese bread), guava & cheese bread, bistec a caballo, pollo ala plancha to be good. Enjoy!

A true gem of authentic Colombian cuisine. Tucked in a strip mall of stores, take an extra minute to find this place! A truly varied menu covering all the bases of any discerning palate. You will find all entrees to be freshly prepared and professionally served. It that is not enough, make sure to pick up some freshly prepared Colombian... More
