Delicious food and huge portions. Authentic Puerto Rican food. I have been here multiple times! Great service every time. I made a reservation for 16 a while back to celebrate a graduation and everyone left full & happy! I just wish eating place was bigger (restaurant food and atmosphere are perfect, but eating area is TINY, sometimes feels cramped). Sangria,... More

Love this place! Is PRican food without been actually in PR. Be aware that is almost full during the weekends, so it may take a while to get you settle. But the wait is so worth it! The food is amazing, the mofongos are great, and the portions are generous. They also have Medalla and several PRican sodas... Great for... More

Sympathetic little resto owned and run by one family. A fresh breath of air in the middle of all the chains of "blah" food places pretending to be restaurants. All food made from scratch daily. How it is supposed to be. Very friendly service. We especially enjoyed the garlic shrimp ( cooked just right ) and the meat. Definitely going... More

Skirt steak is to die for and you got to get the corn fritters. Support a small business serving homemade food made from quality ingredients.

Love the good here! I tried a couple of things here and I must say everything is really good! It's a little crowded due to the restaurant being so popular yet a little small but it's worth the wait! The churrasco is very good and the Chillo al ajillo as well! Staff is very friendly when you sit down, although... More

This place is the closest to authentic mofongo (off of the island of Puerto Rico) that I have found in the USA. Very good.. Nice atmosphere, albeit it's rather small.. Not anything fancy, but classy in a basic way.. Nice occasional visit, since I'm a local..

Just came back from a vacay to PR and am already missing it. My sweet husband surprised me one evening after work with food from this restaurant so we could recreate, relive and redo PR to prolong our vacay with one more night. Great food, close to authentic. It's quite a drive from where we live, but worth the trip.... More

Food was delicious. Service was friendly and helpful. Had shrimp in creole sauce and it was great. Wish it was closer to tourist area. Had tembleque and it was delish. Will gladly return.

As a 100% disabled veteran, I will NOT be spending my money there unless they do something DRASTIC to make up their blatant disregard for disability laws toward the individual whose civil right were abused. The woman with the service dog who was thrown out should have called police to acquaint the restaurateurs with the law. But then again, who... More
