El Chuzo BBQ is a late-night hotspot for Colombian food. The restaurant stays open until 4:30 a.m. - not many places in Tampa can offer you good food at that time of the night. The crowd is mostly clubgoers and primarily Spanish people in the know. When I visited the first-time I made the mistake of ordering a Coca-Cola and had a few people stare at me as I noticed I was surrounded by people drinking Postobon Colombian soda. I had a Colombian burger and fries, it was great and really cheap - everything on the menu is under $10. The parking lot is tiny so you may have to park and walk. Just visiting the restaurant was a fun, cultural experience so I recommend giving El Chuzo BBQ a shot sometime even if you normally are not a late-night snacker like myself.
Pros: Open until 4:30 a.m., great Colombian food, cultural experience
Cons: Gets super crowded, club-crowd, parking is limited
