“Took forever but awesome crab”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

One of those places that are filled with tourists but locals still like the food if they're willing to brave the crowds... 3 friends and I went there pretty late one night. The service was awful - it took forever to get anything, from drinks to our food - but the food made up for it. My friends all liked what they got, and my spicy crab dish - I forget the name - was awesome. Mofongo was good too.

“Must-stop spot when you land!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

A must if you would like to eat local Puerto Rican cuisine! Typically a not so fancy eatery for locals, now tourists have been discovering it. Very close to the airport and Isla Verde. Very afforadable especially for the San Juan Metro Area.

Best on the menu? EVERYTHING!!! Try the mofongo, rotisserie chicken, yuca, roast pork, and ribs.

What this restaraunt lacks in ambiance it more than makes up with tasty food at a great price. Don't be shy if you do not speak the language. Someone will be more than willing to help out. The Staff is always friendly and helpful even on a busy day, which seems to be most of the time.

“Good Food at a Good Price”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Try the beefsteak and mofongo or the shrimp and rice. What this restaraunt lacks in atmosphere it more than makes up with tasty food. Saturday night at 10 it was still crowded with couples and families. Staff was friendly and helpful. Try it!

“Love this restaurant!”
Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

This was our second time here, the first time was several years ago. In the intervening time more tourists have discovered it as I remembered it being mostly locals before. The mofongo is outstanding, service and atmosphere are great.
