We had a group meal served on a board. The restaurant is out of business do not look for it. The service was poor and the food was OK at best. OUT OF BUSINESS OUT OF BUSINESS

If you are missing chicken fingers, go here. There was no Gallo Pinto on the menu when I went there. We were hoping for traditional Nicaraguan, but it was not.

This place is great and shouldn't be over-looked. If you are going with a group of friends ask for the meter of meat.

Ordered El Metro, it was great, enjoyed by 7 visitors. Sitting by the patio at night was nice. I think you could give this one a chance..Owned by a joung couple.

Great plate of mixed traditional Nica foods and definitely the best Gallo Pinto I've ever had, in a very cute setting ...
