“Great chicken”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2013 via mobile

This is a restaurant that is known for chicken and big platters. However I was disappointed with the shredded steak . I should have known and stayed with what they are good for. Next time chicken.

“horrible staff and service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2012

I won't recomend this place to anyone. The waitress that was serving me, conviniently forgot to bgive me my $60 change. After I complained to the managment about it and they just covered up among eachother. When I told them I was gonna call the police to check their cameras, the careless waitress suddlenly rememberd where she had 'missplaced' the change and receipt.

“Big portions, good value Colombian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2012

Hidden in Hempstead NY is this Colombian restaurant that does big meals, rotisary chickens in window and take away too.
Atmosphere is bright, filled with people, flags, posters of Colombia, even walls inside resemble colonial Spanish architecture.
It is really an informal restaurant where I fed the family with only one of the $14 typical platters filled with more meat, chorizo sausage, buttery rice, egg, beans, plantain, cornmeal bread (arepas) than we could eat.
The tropical juices were offered to be made with milk to taste like milkshakes.
Service on Sat night we went was fast and friendly though it was busy.
Would go again with bigger appetite.
