Description: So good! I live across the street from this place and was hungry so I decided to check it out with my boyfriend. The place that was there before was not good at all. It is a new restaurant with new owners. Boy was I pleasantly surprised. The appetizers Empanadas and trio of Monfongos are freaking to die for. I am not of Puerto Rican decent but I have seen the light of what I have been missing. The Entrees were equally as tasty, my boyfriend had the pork and I had the chicken with Aji Verde sauce. So yummy , the owner calls this his money sauce, which could not be any further from the truth. I know online their menu was like family style but that is a typo they serve single entrees. I was a chef for over ten years before I got into food sales. I know my food! This place is a diamond in the rough excellent.

Love this place. It is small and intimate, the service is great, and the food is amazing. This place is kind of hidden but I am very glad I found it.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

Fantastic hidden gem off Columbus in JC. Eddie & Maria are awesome, as is the food. Best part? BYO! Stop on the way. Portions are great- allow for plenty of lunch the next day too.

“Best Puerto Rican (and Latino) food in JC!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Bypass the conveniently located latino restaurants on Grove street, and walk the extra blocks to Me Casa. You won't regret it. Don't forget it's BYOB (nice!).

“Excellent, authentic Borricua cuisine”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I loed everything about this restaurant except, perhaps, the size. My boyfriend and I went to have an intimate date night and there was a large and very loud group of people in the restaurant. We barely heard each other speak. The food was amazing. The service was phenomenal.

“Huge Servings and Great Taste!”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

I visited the Me Casa while in Jersey city, and I found the food superb! Tried the pigeon peas with yellow rice and the Pappas Rellena, both of which were very tasty. One thing to note is, the serving sizes are absolutely huge here. One dish might be enough for two people, if you're light eaters.
