Criollo flavor at large!

We visited this place as regular customers since it's very close from our home. If you want to taste a good (mofongo and carne frita) is mashed fried plantains and fried pork this is your place. We recommend this restaurant for families, couples or carry out since they have a drive thru.

The food was average quality. The meat was way too salty but the portions were very adequate. Would not recommend it to anyone who's on a low sodium diet. The pricing was very reasonable.

we were looking for some place to eat that we couldn't get at home. We found this restaurant and decided to try it. Fast food, it's what's for lunch. We tried the combo plate and enjoyed every bite of it. The chicken was cooked to perfection, the steak was very tasty and the pork was better than the pork we... More

This is one of my favorites. The fried pork with onions, delicious. They have chicken broth to eat your plantain mash "mofongo". One place where you can really eat good and not break your budget. I really think you will enjoy it.

This is one of my favorite fast food restaurants in Puerto Rico. The food is consistenly good and I love their mofongos with carne frita. Price is cheap and service is fast. I always go here when I go visit my family in Puerto Rico. A small place with great local food.

We've been eating here for years. Food is great, service is fast & staff is always in good mood and prices are low. Most of time, we order by phone and pick up. Some times, drive thru takeout and sometimes we just eat in their salon. All dishes are very good. We prefer the family combo; we, all five, eat... More

This restaurant is known for its mofongo. A mash up of fried plantains that are usually stuffed with meat. It is very good and their cooking has been very consistent every time I've been there. Very informal setting and atmosphere. More fast food in their approach.

The place is one of the best caldo con mofongo (brooth and mofongo) there is in the area. There are a few other choices in the menu. All of them good too. Nice familiar place.

They are known for their pork with onions. It is soft and good. Their mashed plantain, known as "mofongo" is good, you can have it plain green plantain, but you can also request it with the sweet plantain or the combination of both.
