The owner was very friendly but he started serving food from his buffet stand , he even did not offer the menu. Chicken was dry, looks like leftovers. Only fried bananas and teaI liked . Later home I checked one more time my Groupon, I paid for food from regular menu and was served from day special, it was not right service. I would not recommend this place

Dirty and horrible service. Waldo says that he is a chef but acted more like a comedian from Univision. Bought a groupon the food was way cheaper without it. I don’t know how he pass inspection with this dirty place. I gave the food to a homeless and felt bad because he didn’t derve that nasty food. The place and food dont look nothing like the pictures.

About El Ceviche De Waldito

Waldo Castro was just a young boy in Peru when he began preparing street food for his family and friends, as explained by Javier A. Flores of the San Antonio Express-News. As time passed, and his passion for the culinary arts grew, he clawed the ranks of dishwasher, waiter, and line cook—often holding multiple positions at once—in pursuit of his true dream: to open his own Peruvian eatery, where guests feel like family.

Now the proud father of El Ceviche De Waldito and owner of Sabor a Mí Festival Internacional, Chef Waldo can look back on his journey to the top. In addition to training with the Iron Chef and Hell's Kitchen crew, he held eight executive chef positions at other people's restaurants before applying his passion to his own Peruvian menu. His team whips up several varieties of lime-marinated ceviche, along with traditional Peruvian aguadito with fish or chicken, homemade Cuban sandwiches, and an assortment of Puerto Rican dishes. While noshing on a Huancayo-style yucca or potato, patrons are invited to relax as if they are at home, but preferably wearing more than a robe, slippers, and backpack holding the TV remote.
