This place used to be the "go to" place for lunch in Mayaguez, is has deteriorated terribly. The quality of the food has gone to the wayside. The recipes or the cooks have changed and the quality of the ingredients are lower. The prices have...More

This was our second time going to the restaurant. It's located right downtown. The seating is cozy and the staff was very friendly. The food is authentic in keeping with the culture. Prices a pretty darn good too.

If you want a sandwich (pastrami, cubano, medianoche, etc), this is the place to stop. AND if you want very traditional food, always accompanied with arroz and habichuelas or tostones, this is also the place. A prefered place for locals! Don't miss it!

This restaurant sells any type of food. From sandwiches and pastries to a wide variety of Puerto Rican plates. The taste was great, the service was fast and respectful, and the environment is fun. Not a fancy place, but certainly with great food.
