Located behind the Olive Garden)2 hour wait) we landed up trying La Fogata Ribs. The food was really good, the atmosphere was great, and the young singer also added a lot of vibrancy, Would certainly eat there again when I'm back in Miami.

Good food and of dependable quality. We took a taxi from the airport, went home, took our car and went to eat there. Dependable food in a very clean place. Food is not too greasy either.
