One of those best-kept-secrets that's not so secret anymore. The food here is fantastic. Jo, the owner, has a magic touch with her black beans. Seriously! They are so good, I often stop in for a carryout order just to have around to serve alongside eggs for breakfast the next day. And the summer dill chicken (with artichokes) ... wow.... More

We had the sampler, lechon and palomilla steak!! As an appetizer we had the shrimp ajillo(not as garlicky) We were pleased with our meal. After vacationing for several days having this meal hit the spot. The flan was great, a cream cheese flan!! Worth stopping next time we r in town

His lechon- pulled pork was delicious! I had the camarones ajillo - shrimp in butter garlic sauce. I loved it. We were both pleasantly... More
