I used to go to this place very frequently during the first owners but now I don't know if its the time or different cooks. The food is inconsistent and I used to enjoy it a lot but I have found some days its great some days its just not as good. I think the menu is severely confusing and might as well not have prices bcs what you see is not what you pay. The older menu was simple and easily understood but now you might be ordering something for 8 to 9 dollars and by the time you are ready to checkout it could be well above what you thought you would play. Its not a place to experiment new food bcs you never know what you will have to pay. The food averages in portions but not my first choice for restaurant any more. As a born and raised in Puertorican this is somewhat authentic.

What an amazing experience! I am from New York and traveled to visit DUKE University. Feeling a bit home sick, I decided to feed my soul with authentic latin food. Heard about this restaurant from a couple in the mall and knew I had to try it before I traveled North. I wish I had the couples number to thank them. Very welcoming feeling from the moment I walked in. Great tasting food at a low price = A great day! Looking forward to returning... Keep up the great work!

Our work bought a Groupon and had them cater. Everything had a wonderful twist on it without taking away from traditional Thanksgiving. I would recommend to anyone.
