Can I give a review of "0" stars? They don't sell authentic Puertorrican food and gives a bad reputation to it. Way to expensive for the poor quality of the food, they steal our money. Pernil should be roasted not pull pork in tomato sauce....Chicharron de pollo (chicken skin fried) should be fried chunks of chicken with bone and skin not boneless and skinless overfried little pieces of chicken breast . The rice was spoiled, the beans was watery and sour and the mofongo, their specialty, was the worst mofongo I ever tried. We were not allowed to dine-in. Obviously because they were gonna sell me spoiled food. Today I asked for the restaurant owner and the "manager" didn't wanted to tell the name of the owner. To the Manager, as I told you, I found the name of the owner. His last name is in a newspaper. I hope the owner can read this because maybe he doesn't know that his restaurant is been badly manage. We went to give them our business. Please don't do it. You definitively will be disappointed. They should change their name to the corner of disappointment and deception.More

This restaurant is right off the highway (I-95) by taking Exit 44. The parking sucks. Look... the service was pretty good, but the food disappointed. It also does not have good value, because from the appetizers to the dishes, the prices are a bit high....The Mofongo was not as tasty as I thought it would.More

Visited with my family. We were a little skeptical about the place. It is on a street busy street corner. Once we went in the small restaurant, the waiter provided excellent service. They offer different family meals. I bought the Mofongo with shrimp. OMG!!!... it...was small, but it was a good portion. It was DELICIOUS!!!. My family bought a family meal, with rice beans, chicken, green plantains(tostones, patacones)...It was Excellent!! From customer service, cleanest, decore, and the food was out of this world. Definitely a place to go if you want Mofongo!!!More

This is a no-frills clean restaurant featuring Mofongo and mostly Colombian food and shakes. Portions are large. Great place for ordering take out also.
