The waitresses are dressed theme-appropriately. Andres Carne de Res is so big and diverse, that it will take some time to see it all! The music is at its best, with people dancing rumba, salsa, cumbia and local rhythms, while lighting up the dance floor. The place is usually very crowded, and stays open till 3 AM on Saturdays.
