“Tasty, cheap, very friendly”
Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

Tasty food, fast and friendly service. You can get a sizable lunch here for less than $10 including tax and tip. Mofongo is only decent, but you can't beat it for $6. Bistec encebollado (steak and onions) comes with your choice of beans and your choice of rice - a total steal at $8.50.

“Delicious Puerto Rican Diner”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

When we arrived at the counter, we were immediately bombarded with all of the smells and sights of the delicious food behind the counter. We ordered the bistec empanizado (breaded steak) and rice and beans. All of this was beyond amazing, and we were very impressed with the service. We will definitely return next time we are in NYC!
