Well it's a great restaurant. Extremely clean. Great Cuban food, like rice, beans, and pork. A DJ and at the heat games they give out prizes in trivia games! High energy restaurant and friendly waitstaff. Fast service!

All Bongos locations advertise themselves as "kid/family friendly" so the restaurant is open to all ages and the local laws regarding drinking ages will determine if you can be served. I've never been to there after 10pm so... More
