Food is very tasty especially when adding the hot dressing. Popular with the young crowd and it's always busy and very noisy. There's a take out section next door to the restaurant.

Our grandson goes to college nearby and this is his favorite restaurant! We always order way to much food because there is so many things we like! Service is good and people are friendly! The roasted chicken and flank steak are two of our favorites!

The food, the atmosphere, and the people are all so great! You come in, order from the extensive menu of Puerto Rican food, and find a seat (or are directed to a seat by waitstaff), and eat up! If you want to try something new,...More
