Succulent meals are served everyday, Mon-Fri. The staff is very accommodating. The meals are reasonably priced. The speed of the service is relatively fast because it is a buffet-cafeteria style business where you make a line and then choose from the amazing variety of local cuisine dishes. You are getting what the locals eat, and the portions are more than adequate. The place does not appear to have parking space, but it has plenty on the right side and towards the back of the business. The cafeteria is maintained with an A/C unit, so the temperature is perfect. There is no clear sign advertising the place, but it is right in front of route #2 in Arecibo.

Took a party of six adults to check out the place. We all ordered different plates to compare our experiences. Everyone scored their meals excellent. We found the place to be authentic Puertorican cuisine and most importantly, it was very, very good!

The place is big, air-conditioned, with plenty of seating. However, for lunch, you need to get there before 11:30am or after 1:00pm to beat the lunch crowd. The lines could get really long during lunch, maybe a wait of 15 min in line. Nevertheless, it's worth the wait!

Went here during a Family Reunion while visiting the Caverns of Camuy with a large Group (23) the service was good because it is cafeteria style and the food was amazing. The staff was great and patient as we had many kids. If your in Arecibo or passing through well worth the stop.

Our local guide took us here twice for lunch as he knew we wanted local food and experiences. Cafeteria style with different selections during the week. We were able to try many of the dishes we had read about. Everything was tasty and freshly prepared. Would definetly recommend this place.
