About this Business
11:00 AM - 9:00 PM
This is a good place to eat. Monday through Friday has a much menu from 11 to 2:30. They charge extra for chilero (encurtidos) which I find weird because in all the Nicaraguan places that is a given since it is part of the culinary experience. Most Nicaraguan comiderias pride themselves in having a special chilero (encurtido) which circulates for free!!, here a small portion the size of a ketchup cup (think in'n'out) cost $.50 cents, but it tastes good. The food is delicious, I love the Gallo Pinto con tajadas. The fried cheese is not made in the traditional Nicaraguan style since they have small bites, a size order of 6 cost $3. The service is very good, friendly staff, bilingual. The place is cozy, bathrooms are clean and don't smell bad (huge plus). They have Toñitas, Milca roja and other natural drinks. Price is better in the weekdays, I give a $$$ in terms of cost on the weekends and $$ weekdays during lunch. Location is perfect. Overall I rated 5 Stars
Awesome service , good food .
The only minus is consistency , sometimes everything is perfect and sometimes they miss the mark. Salpicón today looks like sawdust with lots of bell pepper, had it before... perfect.
No salad on my to go order , Happened before .
As a said consistency with food prep . They have a great place and food in contra Costa
Quality food. Authentic flavors. Good service.
Awesome food and service.
Price point is a bit high. Very slow getting the food out, but food was great. It was a culinary adventure. The server was nice but needed training. We would go back for a little something or lunch.
From Our Editors
From two Nicaraguan natives comes an eatery dedicated to serving authentic Nicaraguan cuisine. La Fritanguera opened in 2014 as a place for the two to share their heritage and food with others. It serves the San Francisco area with such delicacies as achiote-marinated chicken and braised pork as well as specialty shrimp dishes.
