Donde Timmy Perros Colombianos aka Caliempanadas- Kendall, Florida – CLOSED

I stopped to eat at Donde Timmy against the wishes of my wife Marcela. I had sworn to myself that I would stop eating at Colombian Fast Food joints because they’re hit and miss…big time! We walk in and the guy at the counter looks as if he’s seen better days (no for real). This guy definitely doesn’t want to be here, at least that’s the vibe he’s giving off. I look over at Marcela and she has the face. What is the face? The “There’s no fuckin’ way I’m eating here” face. I’m on my own. While she goes to the restroom I think to myself “Maybe if the food is good, I can convince her to share it with me“.

I order a Regular Perro, a Carne Sirloin Especial & a Mazorca Desgranada Regular. Once Marcela returns, I tell her what I ordered and she agrees to at least try the food. First up is Mazorca Desgranada Regular: It’s a platter of Corn Kernels topped with Potato Sticks, Cheese, and Sauces. In this case, I went with 3 of their sauces (Pineapple Sauce, Pink Sauce aka Mayo/Ketchup mix and a Curry). Take a look at the picture and you’ll see, it was mostly Potato Sticks.

Regular Perro

It actually looks like a Breakfast Cereal. It tasted good but more Corn would have been nice. The regular Perro was found to be pretty terrible by both of us. It wasn’t a Hot Dog but more of a sausage. Stay away! The Burger was not too bad and Marcela liked it.


This place doesn’t become Donde Timmy till 6PM. I’m sure by that time they’ve had enough time to round up all the homeless dogs and cats in the neighborhood. Just kidding.

    Thanks for the cautionary tale. This sounds like another place I'll never have to grace.

    Poor Marcela…Looks like Donde Timmy is off the list for now.

    Cant wait to head down to Colombia this year for the holidays for a shot of the real deal. Pics and posts will be sure to follow.

    I do not agree with any of you. I believe people have different taste, maybe this was not your style of food. I personaly love this place and many people do as well. By the way this style of food is not just "colombian" is a tipical type of fast food from a city in colombia called Barranquilla; not every colombian is familiar with this style. Its something you just have to try in my opinion.

    Hey.. There is a new place in Pembroke Pines, Called MAS QUE PERROS.. (No se equivoquen).google it!!

    It is very good, tasty, cheap prices.

    This is a Colombian Fast Food but from Barranquilla.. In my opinion you can find the BEST Fast Food.

    Go try..

    I read all of your blog and I disagree with you I know many people that eat at timmys and love it, as do I. Next time you write a blog make sure you really know what you are talking about because timmys doesnt have a curry sauce, read the menu over. So how can we trust advice from someone who doesn't really know what they're talking about and goes into a place with negative attitude from the begginning and a close mind.
    Its wierd you are a food critique and aren't open into truly trying new things.

    In response to Anonymous from March 7th. I'm not a food critic. I write about my food experiences. You obviously have no idea what you're talking about, I mention other Colombian Fast Food I've had at the bottom of the post. There are some places that are doing it right: Los Perros, La Moon, and Yellow Submarine Truck to name a few but Donde Timmy's is not. Sorry to be the bearer of that bad news.

    There's no amount I could get paid that would be enough to write good about Donde Timmy's.

    I stumbled upon your page because I keep hunting down Timmy. So in a quest to find him, the google search rank showed your page. I’m not sure if the guy keeps getting shut down because he sells crack on the side , but I don’t care – I love his food. Seriously, he opens up a place for a couple of months , then he gets shut down again? I’m thinking Mr. Timmy dabbles in drugs or owes the govt taxes – who knows. His food is amazing, so I have to disagree with your review. The man has a cult following in West Kendall for a reason. I’ve been a fan of him since 2003.

    Truth be told, I’m not Colombian so I might not be the best judge. It could be like like saying Olive Garden has the best Italian food ever.

    The sauces are what makes Timmy’s food yummy. I loathe anything that is Los Perros and on a mission to substitute what Donde Timmy’s offers, I also tried La Prepago because I’m in the Hammocks. La Prepago has nice people working there, but the food is subpar. They spent a ton on creating a great ambiance but if I’d have to rank it, it’d be Donde Timmys, Los Perros, and La Prepago. However, I only eat Timmy’s.
