    Brings you back Home!

    We drove one hour to get to Kelso but it was worth the drive. My fianc├ę is Panamanian and hasn't had an authentic meal in over 13 years. I researched the area and only found one Panamanian restaurant which was Kelso. So for the first time on his birthday I surprised him with a Trip to have a taste of Panama. He was so pleased, (and he's very particular with his food) He was so happy he goes any chance he can get! Kelso....best ever!!!!

    Daily soup

    My husband and I love love Kelso's soup. My husband and I live in Florida and We travel once or twice a year to NY our first stop in Brooklyn is to Kelso restaurant to have their soup. I also look forward for Saturday for the mondongo with white rice.

    I'm Panamanian and I love the food from my heritage we live in Staten Island and every Saturday we come to Brooklyn and shop especially for things we can't get out here, so before we leave we go to kelso and buy food along with the frituras cooked and not cooked we freeze it for later use. I love my Panamanian food. especially the mondongo with white rice yummy

    Great spot! Daily Specials

    I'm a Brooklyn native and my girlfriend did Peace Corps in Panama. We live in the neighborhood and both love this food! Sopa de Res, Hojaldres and Pollo Guisado are our favorites. The service is wonderful, the people are very friendly. The recent renovations are a nice addition too. An overall A+!
