Que Perros – West Kendall, Florida – CLOSED

I thought long and hard about what I would write about Que Perros. I had a few witty one-liners like Two Words: Shit Sandwich (alright so I stole that one from the movie Spinal Tap) or even Que Perros: Que Mierda! I’ve been accused by a few folks of having a fixation with Colombian Fast Food places and they might be right. Well, as of this review I have sworn off these places due to a few factors: 1) The girl who works at Mao rubs me the wrong way 2) I went to Mega Perros and I was served a burger with a moldy bun (yes the bottom had green all over and smelled bad) and 3) The burger at Que Perros tasted like a week old Salisbury steak(more info to follow).

Alright, so let’s get this non-party started. I was excited about going to Que Perros and when I showed up at about 12:30AM on a Thursday they were closed. So attempt number 2 came a few days later on Sunday. This place has a very slick look to it. When I walked in, it was empty which as you know is never a good sign for a food place. I ordered a Todoterreno anyway which is a double Burger with Cheese, Ham, Bacon, Potato Sticks and Pink sauce.

Todoterreno Wrapped and Deadly


This thing tasted odd and upon a flavor dissertation of the burger by my friend and I we realized that it tasted like an old Salisbury steak (as previously stated). A friend of ours would not even try it after hearing our conversation. I’d prefer one from Picadilly or from a decade closed Morrison’s Cafeteria. The Hot Dog I had was El Perrito and it comes with Mozzarella cheese, Ketchup, Mustard, Pink sauce, Pineapple sauce, and Potato Sticks.

El Perrito

The condiments were actually pretty good but the dog itself was lackluster. It makes Arbetter’s original hot dogs taste like real beef. The Maicito was average and had the usual suspects: Pink sauce, melted Mozzarella cheese, Pineapple sauce on Corn kernels. I tell you, proceed with caution when ordering the burger, that is of course if you value your taste buds.

    Well I don’t know who you are… but let me help you, and anyone who reads your opinion… which this is only that one opinion.

    first I will qualify my self by telling you,… I know the original owners and the new owner. I am also a very good friend of the manager. not only have I eaten there I have managed the restaurant for the new owner while she was away.

    Yes Que Perros is a Colombian fast food place, which means most Americans have never eaten food in a style from another country,.. just like food in the US is regional so goes the world…I guess you have not travel much?

    Que Perros is a niche restaurant which means it servers a small market segment and is not a McDonnell’s / burger king. it was and is a restaurant designed for people from Colombia and other latin counties. but all are welcomed. you just need to get used to the flavors (buy the way it is pink sauce, not red similar to thousand isle dressing, which is found on all “big Mac’s”) Que Perros concept is, Latin street food. Like a NY hotdog or Chicago dog, not everyone likes them either. there busy time coincides with the habits of there cliental. fridays and saturdays are there most busiest Thursday is a slow day, most of the week is to latin people work too and mostly hard late hour jobs for little pay. Oh I am married to one.

    as for the food, in may opinion its great… I know, how?.. like i said I managed the placed and know the owner and manager I have cooked the food and bought the supplies. They buy from restaurant depot and cosco so do most restaurants and families, which means the food is pretty much the same at most places… its how you season and how you cook it. as for the hot dogs they use Sabretts and only Sabretts which is kosher and is all beef.

    and if you like Piccadilly or Morrison’s…. you’ll pretty much eat dog shit on a stick… those are the two worst …well i really cant call them restaurants there more like chow lines,… like the ones I use to eat at on Navy Air Station Jacksonville…One day in the mess hall we had chill the next day we had lazonna with chill beans and meat…pretty much shit or like SOS which is “shit on a shingle” or cream chipped beef on toast…..kack.

    so before you bash something you should give it a try once or twice and always do research. never listen to anyone or any group deiced for your self God gave you a brian not as a hat rack….please read the owners manual and use it…you’ll be happily surprised.
