MUST for Happy Hour

This place is a MUST for happy hour. My friends and I come here a lot to share some sangrias and small plates. The arepa con chicharron is amazing and I love the flight of sauces, salsas, and aiolis they serve. I could put that Chimichurri on everything! Don’t skip on the cocktails! They’re super delicious and picturesque!
Off the charts good!

The food here is excellent, especially with those sauces they bring out. The staff is very nice and they also make some good drinks. Had the old fashioned and the margarita before and I highly recommend it.
