I make every possible excuse to find a reason to go to Hampton Bays just to eat at Orlando.
It's not a great restaurant in a town for me, but rather a destination in and of itself.
At first blush, it has the feel of a dive, with a lot of take out, a dozen or so chairs and no atmosphere. Once you settle in, you realize that the place is filled with regulars who come again and again for the food -- myself included.
Orlando, the owner, is from Costa Rica and the guy can COOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! While heavy on Latin fare, there is a lot to chose from...and I've never had a bad meal there.
I order dinner portions for lunch and bring the other half home with me, going into heavy mourning when I finish the second portion.
I love Latin food, have lived in and traveled substantially in Latin America and this is some of the best Latino food I have ever had in my life. Period.
I would recommend it without reservation.....as long as you leave a seat for me if I'm in the neighborhood.
