Los Pinchos

Okay. Before you go here, you gotta know a few things

  1. The place is tiny. (on 20th, 1/2 block N of Hollywood Blvd)
  2. The bathroom is even smaller (think airplane bathrooms...)
  3. There is no AC. Again: NO AC! Once more: SOUTH FLORIDA. SUMMER. NO AC.
  4. If you dine-in, you will smell like Colombian food for the rest of the day and a solid portion of the following day too...

Those things aside, the place is pretty cool. More importantly, they have $6.50 lunch specials which include: soup, 1 meat, 1 rice, 2 sides and a soda. It is alot of food and it is good.

I got the grilled chicken with congri(mixed rice and black beans), salad, and tostones(fried green plantains) + chicken veggie soup($6.50!!). While the food a good and cheap, there is nothing terribly outstanding about the place. According to the people who work there, the place is popular during the wee hours when people need to soak up debauchery with some greasy grub, or on V-day when you can't get a table anywhere else(right Jorge?)

Two recommendations if you go 1) Ask for the hot sauce (its a homemade green mixture) 2) Mid-day South Florida + no ac+hot soup +car w/ broken AC = go some other day

  1. Loved this place. Nice food. the empanadas was really good. The perfect place after the club. And yes you will smell like Columbian food for the rest of the night if you sit inside.
