My husband was so leery when we walked up to Izzy's from Kendall, but once inside he understood. The aromas, the doñas and locals added to the around the way feel. The place is small (8 tables), but does a great amount of take-out business. We had the Churasco and fried snapper. Bread, rice, beans and salad were included. Both... More

After reading the reviews, .we were excited. My husband is Puerto Rican and we haven't been to visit in many years and sorely miss the island cooking. We decided to give this place a try. First time we went they were on vacation for a month. We told them that it was our first time there and if they can... More
