I had read one comment about the main dish is served without any side. I felt like wanting pork, and I chose boneless pork chops. Then, I asked before and then I ordered two sides, white rice and beans, which are expensive- $2.95 each- considering that they were plain, no extra ingredients. Summarizing, don't create big expectations and you get... More

Great hot delicious food in a nice setting. It's a small restaurant so get there early. It's great to be able to support locally owned establishments.

Someone recommended this place for lunch. I don't eat downtown a lot so I tried it. OMG. Good stuff. We tried the chicken (sorry I can only remember it by picturing a painting of a pie 'Pie-Art' but I think it's Pillard) It's fabulous. We also had the Salt and Pepper shrimp and white rice.. Fabulous too. We liked it... More

Ok so I finally tried out Mama Roomba's and was very disappointed with what my friends called a "great place to eat". Their tapas should not be called tapas instead they should be called microwaved finger foods. We ordered the empanadas and they were so bland not to mention expensive for what you received. Our main dish was a "Brazilian... More

Fresh tortilla soup, flavorful and moist fresh salmon with a zesty mango and corn sauce, a variety of beans in a tasty marinade. ALL DELICIOUS. Service is a little slow, but I was there on a Friday night and grateful to get a table. Nice ambience, colorful decor, outdoor seating, close to the local theaters so perfect for a pre-performance... More

The poor girl waiting tables seemed to be alone with a fairly full house. She took our drink order then got out of sequence in taking food orders...so a bit of a wait. Not a big deal. We ordered and asked for bread - was told bread was being made and would be 5 minutes. Had to ask again for... More
