Stopped in for lunch and left satisfied. Very nice service. It's a simple, small restaurant in a very latin neighborhood and it seems to have a lot of regulars. The mango batido was very good and so were the empanadas. There are several types of empanadas, including guava!

A staple in Union City, serves good Cuban food at great prices, order the Specials; great churros, take some to go. Great shakes as well. Parking could be tough, located on busy ( and crowded ) Bergenline Avenue. Service is good.
