Found this little gem by googling good restaurants parked near Ybor City and walked crossed the train tracks and started to get concerned as it was off the beaten path. Turned out to be one of the best meals on our trip food was cooked...More

I fell into this place by google search and the reviews matched the food! It's not cheap, but it was worth it. Had the sautéed chicken and onions and it was amazing! Ordered with a side of beans and it was amazing.

Good, generous, home style meals served courteously and without pretense. My colleague and I had empanadas, tilapia breaded with rice and beans on the side, and pollo breaded with a salad along with bread. Full square meal. Recommend.
