I had "chicharrones de pollo con tostones" which is small pieces of chicken deep fried with fried plaintains. They were SO good. Great sangria and they have a live show of a woman singer which you interact with her in her show. Had a great time with my friend. The owner is super nice and comes to your table and... More

Long time didn't lunch at this place which was one of my favorites. We arrived at 11:30 am on a Friday 9/19 and there were only two people, we ordered quickly and it took almost half an hour to bring is the food ... The fish, usually bought, looked like it was flavored with seasoning as it looked pink. The... More

Great food. You have to try "chuleta can-can" Huge deep fried pork chop with the skin attached. Super cold beers, local and imported.

The food was good, especially the pasteles which were VERY good, but the service is what will blow you away. The warmth with which they welcomed us was wonderful. The owner, Edwin, really cares about his clients - treated us like old friends. He plays his guitar and sings beautiful traditional puerto rican music along with his friend Tito the... More

I sing with the owner it was an awsome entertainment just like if I where in my own house. Blessings to this restaurant and may... More

My associate took me here for lunch this week for authentic Puerto Rican fare and we were not disappointed. I had the Chuleta Can Can and thought it was very tasty. We started out with an appetizer; a pastie. Not sure what was in it but it was explained that normally these would only be available at Christmas time. It... More

I'm not sure what are the good reviews are for. The food wasn't good and the service was bad. Be prepared to buy bottled water for $2 a piece as they have no tap water. Wouldn't advise.
