Love the food here and the very nice staff! They supply delicious meals for the annual Prime Time Family Reading Time bilingual literacy program at the Norcross Branch Library. Worth visit or two..or three!
Had dinner there last night.
It was great!
Mofungo was a ball of garlic/starch goodness and roast pork was tender and delicious. Empanada was crisp. Even the cafeteria-style food was good.
No booze, but lots of exotic soda choices. Malta, with ingredients such as hops and malt, tastes like beer.
This has always been one of my favorites and caused bouts of depression when the original restaurant burned and they reopened in Canton. Thankfully they are back. My favorite is the cuban sandwich plate, which comes with their black bean soup and yellow rice. The sandwich is on exceptional bread, always fresh and crunchy. The soup is spiced perfectly and the rice is well seasoned. I also love their empanadas, the beef, mushroom and jalapeño are my favorite. My wife eats healthier than I do, she always get a salad, black bean soup and fried plantains. My son gets a grilled cheese sandwich and the Mango milkshake. The service is always the same, you stand in line, place you order, get a number and wait until they call. There is not waitress service. You carry your food to the tables when your number is called. They do bus the tables afterwards.
I would not recommend this restaurant. I found the food to be unremarkable and the management to be both rude and dishonest.
I had a Cuban Sandwich with rice and beans and a side of tostones. The food was fine, but not spectacular. The Sandwich was dry and flavorless. The pork seemed more like turkey than I am used to. I was not excited by the sauce that accompanied the tostones like I have been at other places.
The food, however, couldn't make up for the service and management. The woman behind the counter was brusque and rude. I brought a coupon I had printed out online. I was told without explanation or apology that they were no longer accepting the coupon. There is no excuse for this. They could have easily contacted the site and had the coupon removed.
I do not plan on ever returning. There are better Cuban restaurants in Atlanta and far better restaurant options along the Buford Hwy.
queridos amigos a mi la comida restaurante guatemala me encanta ,su cervicio es d lo mejor q lastima q aveces hay personas q sean tan ingnorantes ,q se expresen tan mal d un lugar tan bueno.
WELL, Firt I really don't care about how many hours the employes work...DAAH I really care bout the delicious food that im going to eat!!! haha and visit FRIENDS is the best motha fuckin sweet restaurant
5730 Buford Hwy, Norcross GA 30071, ph. 678 646 0421, great place, good food.
I got this confused with La Churreria at 3336 Buford Highway.. which is the one I frequent.. I've never been to one in Norcross
I went to La Churreria looking for.. well, just that.. Churros. When I stepped into this little hole-in-the-wall, I found a tiny store. They serve Greenwood ice cream. There's a huge sliding-glass case against the wall full of tasty (and I'm pretty sure, all Mexican) breads, cookies, and pastries. When you walk in, you grab a metal shopping basket, metal tongs included, that's lined with parchment paper. Pick out your pastries and pop them into your basket and take them to the counter to purchase. Back to the point, I came looking for churros. I was told they would take five minutes while the lady at the counter fried them up and tossed them in cinnamon-sugar. They are SO GOOD! I took them home and dipped them in good drinking chocolate. The prices at La Churreria are low and the tasty sweets suprise you after seeing the actual store (they even have almond-nut cookies!). I hit a language barrier because I know zero spanish but don't let that scare you off.. I just kindly asked another customer to translate.
La churreria is the best place to buy fresh and delicios colombian products and excellent bread. Is a big bakery. I desagree with natalia and Kelly. The place is good and colombian 100%
I was impressed by the cleanliness, the good food, the great prices and service. You could very well pass this restaurant on Shallowford and miss a great meal. I took a group of my friends here after they came back from Guatemala. Everyone was thumbs-up about the food, service and the ambience. There was more food on the plates than most could eat. I think the tamales that I had are some of the best in Atlanta. We had nine people and the check came to $101, which included four appetizer ... Hey, that's great for Atlanta. On the downside no cerveza -- there is only soft drinks and water -. Still Highly recommended.
The most delicious caribbean food I have ever tasted.It is home cooked food. It is well seasoned.
I'm original from Guatemala and they have exactly what we eat there. The food it's out of this world, the service is great. Very clean place and very cheap. If you miss your Guatemalan dishes, give it a try you will be back there soon.
the owners of the restaurante guatemala make their employes work 70 hours a week with the minimun payment of 350$ a week they use abusibe words to treat the employes that is the worst place to work there they contract ilelal people because that people dont say nathing and they can fire whenever they want i wish somebary read this mesaje and help that poor people still working there
I was very disappointed in this restaurant cause its definitely not Colombian at all. Not good quality and it seem 99% more Mexican than Colombian and the 1% that was Colombian was the empanadas that were not freshly mad and seemed cold! I agree completely with Natalia Gaviria
You should definitely check out this little place next to Feast across from the old RR depot in Decatur. Wonderful, moist, smoky Peruvian chicken, beans, rice and be sure to try their sweet potato fries. Inexpensive and nice folks run it, too.
Paella & Mojitos!!!! Nough said! Its FANTASTICO!!!!
I am colombian new in this area, so I have been looking for a real colombian bakery, in my visit to la churreria I was pretty disapointed that the place is completely mexican I really dont understand why they have the colombian flag....uuummm there is nothing colombian oohh except for the old and cold empanadas
la churreria is the best place to buy fresh bread, and some delicious food
congratulations the rate for this place is 5 stars
I've been here many times and have never had a bad experience. The food is excellent and they have a wide selection of imported beers. Be sure to go on a nice day and sit outdoors!
