Good food and prices

Stumbled upon this little joint when I was volunteering down the street. I have been told about this place 3xs since my last visit this past May and decided no better time to try than the convenient present. So glad I did.

This is one stop that everyone has to make, great service, great food, and and a nice location. Guess you can call that your entertainment as you eat. Every meal that we have ever had is really great. Great home cooked meals.

If you're in the La Gloria neighborhood, stop here for lunch or dinner. Good food, good service, good prices.

Like not good in any way. Food service decor are all lacking and that's me being nice. I can't believe the good reviews this place get. Dismal everything. Someone explain one thing they liked and why. Too many mindless reviews

Took a cab here several times and always timed it when they were closed. Gave it one last chance and they were open. Poor service and the most disappointing meal we had during our four week stay. There's nothing that would bring us back. Bastos will get our business instead if we're looking for an economically priced mid island dinner.

Chicken enchiladas, garlic fish, cold beer! Owner is super nice. As with most restaurants on the island, it does not have AC and is a small family operation so don't be in a hurry. Part of the charm.

Off the beaten track in a residential neighborhood, this place is a great place to stop for lunch while you're on a golf-cart tour of the island. This is not a fancy place, but it serves good Mexican food in a good atmosphere.

I always live going to this place, one of the few places you can see the fresh fish brought in the front door to be a great meal. They have a great selection to choose from and you always walk away with a very full stomach. Highly recommend if you want to have a great Mexican home cooked meal.

Roberto & Maria are always very welcoming and appreciate you. We always try to make it there a few times each visit. Love the enchiladas & grouper fish. Maria always has a smile on her face. Great place!
