I order empanadas and have them shipped to New Jersey because I just love them so much! The owners are wonderful and friendly and the service is prompt. The price is great too! I would recommend them to anyone looking for authentic Puerto Rican food and cannot find it in their area.

The food is simple and delicious with generous portions at reasonable prices. Customer service is excellent and though they do get busy on occasion - it is worth the wait! Seating is limited so I usually do take-out. I recommend the roast pork dinner and the tomato/avocado salad.

Ordered some of everything, roast pork, maduros, black beans and rice, an assortment of empanadas, and a great sandwich. Everything was excellent, best black beans, the cubarican sandwich is a big improvement over the standard cuban due to quality fillings. The owners are nice and explain what items are without making you feel dumb. The portions were so large that we had leftovers for lunch even with a teenage boy (who liked everything!).

Food is excellent! Great Service! The chicken stew and rice is the best! Food is so good the restaurant can be very busy at lunch so my recommendation would be to call ahead when ordering take out.

I never been to a Puerto Rican restaurant before and I was surprised at the quality and quantity of food I ate. There was on inside dining and the weather was overcast and gloom but the pork chunks and red beans with white rice warmed my whole body including my tummy. The service was great also. Can not wait to go again and again! Thanks a lot and I will definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone I know.
