Had a snack here - nachos for me and a sandwich for my wife. Both very tasty and large portions! Good value for money, good service and the staff were very friendly. Nice location and premises. Totally recommend it.

We decided to stop here at random, and were not disappointed in the least. We had a nice chifrijo (pork, rice and beans) and a plate of rice and shrimp, along with 2 drinks. Everything was great, and only about $18
