My wife and her family are all Puerto Rican, so it is them I can say who introduced the cuisine to me. I havent been eating it long but I loved this place. The alcapurria and guisado my wife had was amazing. It was definitly worth the drive from the beach while we were on vacation.

Food is absolutely delicious. Friendly staff, great atmosphere and phenomenal prices. My mother and I have been here several times in the last couple of weeks. My only regret is that I didn't try this place sooner!!
