We keep going again and again, for lunch and dinner. Consistent, innovative, beautifully presented food. The spices compliment the dish well. The small complimentary taste of chicken soup to start your experience leaves you wanting more. The Pupusas are the bast I have ever eaten.

I would give this place 5 stars if they would switch to actual cups and glasses. Found it very odd that they use disposables...very wasteful and tacky. The vegetarian plate is awesome though and it's the only place I have found baleadas outside of Honduras!

Chucherias Hondurenas is located in Holly Hill, Florida in The Market. The old building is a renovated old city hall and is constructed of large coquina rocks. A beautiful piazza or courtyard is centered inside the connecting four rectangular buildings. Beautiful. Parking is plentiful.

Resevations are a must and the patrons arrived on time and were seated. The dining room featured a small bar and 15+ tables. There are table outside also. A huge old coquina fireplace was featured at the north end. The comfortable linen covered tables were adorned with fresh flowers. The decor was comfortably elegant and walls contained original artwork.

The diners were greeted by our well-dressed and articulate server Gregorio. He is Costa Rican by birth and has been in the United States since age 4. He enhanced the entire dining experience with his knowledge, skill and humor. If asked, he would give an accurate opinion about each dish that the diners would ask about...the writer dislikes cilantro, but G assured the writer that the cilantro was used judiciously. Gregorio was correct and the writer had no problem with its use.

But, what the writer does have a major problem with, is describing the incredible food that is freshly made on premises. The writer has never experienced Honduran food with its own eclectic identity. An appetizer sampler and a pitcher of freshly made sangria (delicious) was ordered for the party of four. The platter featured a number of tapas sized delights. Portions were large enough to share and truly get a good taste. Every appetizer was incredible and enjoyed thoroughly. Four entrees were ordered featuring steak, chicken, pork and fish (tilapia and shrimp). Deserts were a chocolate espresso dish and an upsidedown pineapple selection. The writer regrets that he cannot describe the ingredients but can only gush with praise at the incredible flavors and the quality of the food. Simply put...a gastronomic triumph.

An unexpected delight was music provided by a very talented musician who played a native Spanish harp (smaller than one expects and made of wood) and classical guitar. His performance was not intrusive and he played some beautiful Latin selections. The entire dining experience was enhanced by his presence.

In summary, this is not your local taco joint. Chucherias is fine and authentic Honduran dining at its best. The party of four thought that the pricing was very reasonable for the quality of the food, the ambiance and the music. The owner came to the table several times to make sure the diners were all satisfied. Again, he was sincere and warm.

In summary, Chucherias Hondurenas goes to the top tier in this writer's list of gems. Do not miss this fine dining experience, but do make reservations.

My wife and I decided to try chucherias hondurenas out based on tripadvisor. We were very pleased to find how good it was! In fact, we made reservations to come again when we left the first time. Unfortunately our next trip we went on a busier night and it seems they have only two servers per shift which I think is inadequate. However the food does make up for it. Just be sure to go on a slow night.

The Food was delicious! I think they should lower their prices though. I thought it was just going to be 70 dollars max . But it was 150 dollars. Very Expensive.
