Having moved here recently from VA, we're new to Cuban food. We've eaten at this location for lunch and dinner now and have really enjoyed it. Food and service are excellent and prices are reasonable. We look forward to our next visit.

This Restaurant has the best chicken livers around. Is served in its own spices and is superb. Price is the best part. Very reasonable. Their mojitos are excellent as well. Staff are attentive and courteous.

I've been going here for probably close to 20 years now and the food has always been consistent. The portions are large and the food is full of flavor.

One of our family favorite restaurants. On certain weekend nights they have live music which is a nice touch. Love the Pollo a la plancha and all their shrimp dishes.
