We saw the Criollo sign on the way to home depot and figured we stop to eat dinner before shopping. We ordered the whole chicken with rice and beans with maduros (fried sweet plantains) and 2 empanadas. First of all i love my food hot and all the food was cold, the chicken was not burned but over cooked and dry and the maduros were burnt black and raw inside. Rice and beans were lacking flavor and empanada was dry meat and salty. Took a couple of bites of each and couldn't eat it. Noticed the people sitting across from us just looking at there food in disgust and the woman was hitting her pork chop against the table. Hey all I can say we tried it out but I will never eat there again.
WE FOUND INSECT WINGS IN MY FOOD. Need I say more? I searched my meal to ensure that it was indeed an insect and not just some sort of spice, but it was most definitely wings. I eat here all the time, so i know what to expect in what we order. It was in my mouth and I had to spit it out which is how I know something was not right. I HAD INSECT WINGS IN MY MOUTH! The waitresses proceeded to fight with me saying that I am imagining things and this is apart of the food, I say with her sifting through the food showing her that if this were apart of the food I should be able to find more. This is a DIRTY place. I have a photo and will be posting it too.
Everytime I order grill chicken sandwiches from this place ,the bread is hard like concrete, it's no good, and when u call them they just don't bother with u ,they are so impolite, re
it is such a good restaurant with the most best food I tasted!!!
The food is good and tasty ( especially, the Stewed Chicken with Rice and Peas). But, the service leaves a lot to be desired. Don't smile or try to be polite....it only makes the cashier/servers more contemptuous.
