Must try restaurant. Owner personally greets patrons. Service was slow during visit, but it wasn't for other patrons.

I stopped here again for a family lunch almost a year after first eating here and it is just as good as I remember. Outstanding food, friendly service and fair prices. Authentic Puerto Rican food but they also had some chorizo from Columbia, Mexican style tamales and Argentinian styled empanadas. The owner and family are super nice. They don't always... More

You can't beat a restaurant with authentically delicious food with a great family host. It's like you're in their living room. They are so gracious and kind. My son and I are hooked on empanadas. There's no place in town to get them like this but everything on the menu is good.

Came on a recommendation from coworkers for dinner. Figure is Puerto Ricans are blessing this place, then it has to be good. Lord have mercy, this is awesome. Pork mufongo is damn good. Will be back when I am in town.

Got the chance to come here. Had the pork mufongo and all I can say is DAMN! I love great food and non-chain places. This brought a smile to my face and brought back memories.

This is a nice little mom and pop place. Not much atmosphere but that's not why you should seek places like this, it's for the authenticity. You sure get it here. I've been here several times, the restaurant seems to be family run and at different times three generations can be seen about. With cooking and food much like I... More

"That was so worth it." was my 8 y/o's comment when we left. We visited this quaint little establishment because of the glowing and the fact that I grew up in PR. We were not disapponted! Great personal service too. I see us coming here to eat every time we visit this area.

This is a little place that doesn't say much when you get there, however the food is 100% authentic puerto rican... Mon and Dad take care of the kitchen while son (quite a character) entertain you with his anecdotes... Overall great tasting food...
