“Great dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2011

Great dining experience here and possibly one of the best restaurants. My family and I thouroughly enjoyed our meal and service and we could not fault anything. It was very busy on the evening yet food quality remained excellent and our server was attentive and very informative. We will be recommending and will definitely be returning this side of Christmas!

“A Second Home To Many-With Good Reason”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2009

You can always count on a quick,tasty, inexpensive and satisfying meal at this West Village/Chelsea institution, thus saving a few bucks for your meatpacking district fashion splurge.
On Saturday's their pavo asado (roast turkey) is a Latino seasoned delight (don't forget the garlic sauce). Add some arroz con gandures (included), maduro (sweet banana) and of course a cafe con leche and you might swear you're in a cafeteria in old San Juan!
They're closed on Sundays, but the rest of the week you can always count on yummy roast chicken, pernil (fresh ham),cabrito,chuletas,pasteles,soups etc..virtually all of which come with rice and beans.If you're adventurous,perhaps the oxtails, mofungo or mondungo will appeal.
Sure, the place isn't for the strictly white linen/bottle or Applebee's crowd, but if you want a taste of authentic nueva york,baby, this is the place.
You might even absorb a little Spanish while you dine, and if you're solo, the lively counter beckons.
