In the concrete. Enough said. Fair priced open late food from the Caribbean and South America. Delicious Batidos. I recommend la bandeja paisa for those undecided.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner. Peruvian, Colombian and Costa Rican food. Nice family friendly place, you feel like you are visiting friends as staff is very friendly. Spanish and English spoken. Delicious!

A smaller size restaurant on 21st Ave in Paterson, serving delicious food for years, parking can be a problem, on street only, no lot, but its worth the trip....try the Lomo Saltado!
