"Cuantas personas? Cual es su nombre?" You know a Latin place is going to be good when the hostess automatically assumes you speak Spanish (or doesn't care if you don't). Good thing my Spanish was passable enough for me to not feel like a complete idiot. Yes, the area is sketchy, with shady characters hanging around on most corners outside. And yes, they will stare at you if you don't look Latino, particularly if you are a woman unaccompanied by a male. But the restaurant itself is well-lit on the outside, relatively classy and full of people on the inside, and it's like stepping into a nice (by Latin American standards) restaurant in Havana or Cartagena. So park in the Rite-Aid lot across the street (the restaurant says you're allowed to) and make a run for the door. The food is decently priced at around $12 for most entrees. I had the churrasco Argentino which was delicious, but a juicy steak grilled medium-rare is pretty difficult to screw up. My dining companions didn't seem to find their carne asada quite as delicious. The food in general seemed somewhat unrefined, not exactly sophisticated or exceptional. However, it's pretty good for what it is: basic Latin food in fair portions for a reasonable price. I will be back at some point for the tres leches. Hasta entonces... tres estrellas.

Went there last night. One of my friends had never been to gay bars so we took her around to a few. It was exactly how I remembered it. Expensive drinks, crowded, kind of meat markety. I probably would have enjoyed it more if we had gotten there in time for the drag show.

I really like this place during the week for dinner. I've also been on a Saturday night for the music and It was a little too crowded and way too noisy (that's the point of the music). The food is great and the house specialty cocktails are amazing. Everyone who works there is nice and the atmosphere makes you feel like you could step out onto the beach. Nothing in the place is expensive either.
