This is just a cafeteria. Wanna eat cheap and be full then come here but keep in mind that you get what you pay for. Don't expect 5 star food here.

The ketchup they brought me for my fries tasted bitter and out of date. The Media Noche Sandwich sucked, it had too much of a bold spicy mustard overpowering the sandwich. I have yet to taste an authentic Cuban Sandwich in Puerto Rico. Nothing like the way they make in Union City, New Jersey. I will not eat here again.... More

We ate great meals mostly breakfast and dinner. We are on our 3rd day of our stay and have not found bad food! Fresh orange juice is a must no need for ice. The selection is amazing and our kids enjoy the attention given to them. Great place to eat!!

Only place in mayagüez you can eat cow tongue cooked in tomatoes. Spanish restaurant that have been around way too long. Not in the best years but still good food.

In town for a doctor's appointment and decided to had lunch at one of the spots my then boyfriend (now husband) and I visited while studying at the University in Mayaguez.

I grew up in this town now I leave overseas, but every time we visit Mayaguez we literally go for every meal!! My favorite is cod fish with yuca!! To die for!! The price for food is perfect especially when you compare the quality and amount of food.
