Unfortunately, because the place was short a cook, everything took a long time to be brought to the table. My meal. which was their standard taco plate with corn (maize) tortillas and pork, was sadly without any real flavor. I am aware that only Mexican food features truly spicy offerings from that region, but this was deficient all around. The... More

Caribbean soul food - fried plantains is a dish we liked. There are sandwiches, and a very large menu to delight the taste buds. Cozy atmosphere. They are open morning to night.

2nd time there had an asparagus/turkey omelet which seemed more like a crepe - imagine they use egg beaters as it was paper thin. Absolutely no flavor. The asparagus, though small, was a bit tough. My friend had a Denver omelet and had the same opinion. Very bland. Service was good, they weren't real busy so didn't mind that my... More

Second time here, tried new things and was a little disappointed. Their breakfast omelet was just ok, not very fluffy or satisfying. Sister had something from their more ethnic food, was good flavor and decent portions. Service is good, fun to color on your table covering while you wait.

Awesome Latin American cuisine! The owner is also very personable which makes the experience that much better and 'homey'. Everything is made fresh from scratch which is an advantage! The gluten free noodles are actually made to order. The pigeon pea rice is very good and I also love the shrimp (or chicken) pasta a la criolla! There's so much... More

* My husband and I tried this place for the 1st time, we're so pleased that we did. We told our nice waitress how allergic I am to gluten (CELIACS) and cross contamination, she explained options and even had the chef(owner?) come over to meet with me. He told me how they keep gf options safe and then he showed... More

Amazing food, finally something different!! Service is always fast and they are really friendly. They have many things on the menu to pick from but the make your own tacos are the best. Get the mango sauce on the side it really adds to the flavor. I can't wait to go back!

We stopped for dinner with a promotional Restaurant.com page. Our service was a little slow, but it seemed a number of tables had arrived just ahead of us. It gave us time to talk! The food was terrific. I had the fried plantains with avocado on the side, dip, and "tropical" pork that was melt-in-your-mouth tender! I also had the... More
