As usual these people know how to treat a customer. Servers are veteran gals. They know how to serve and take care of us. We will go back once a month. Love it

“Great eatery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

Tursi's Latin King is one of my favorites with a wide selection of food and wine so that all may find something of their choosing. Very much a neighborhood restaurant where you are greeted warmly and given prompt service. Sometimes too busy to get in on Friday and Saturday, but otherwise, delightful!

“A GREAT PLACE TO TAKE THAT SPECIAL PERSON !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

We have ate here many times and it is always great. They make you feel special as soon as
you walk in. The food is always very good.
We had our 50th wedding aniversary there with 30 people, and what a spread they served!!
Bobby is there most of the time to see to your every need. He also has several Managers
who also take great pride in the resturant

“Run, don't walk to the Latin King”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

In a midwest town hidden is the Latin King, don't be fooled by the name, the food is off the scale, go early on the weekends it gets jammed by 6:00pm
