Description: Treat yourself to the Taste of the Puerto Rican cuisine. The new world cuisine of the Caribbean, with its emphasis on only the freshest ingredients and seasonings, offers an exciting blend of taste sensations. Puerto Rican cuisine has been influenced by many culinary disciplines, including European, African, and Asian to name a few. Enjoy the taste of our original mashed plantain stuffed with shrimp or chicken or just our onion beef steak with rice and beams as a sample of our great variety of Puerto Rican dishes.

“Good local cuisine at reasonable prices”
Reviewed April 24, 2011

We called in here @ midnight after a late bio bay kayaking tour. We were pleasantly surprised. Food was hot and tasty and was delivered reasonably quickly. There is a good range for a family - with local food as well as stables such as burgers and sandwiches.

“Don Jose? yeah right!”
Reviewed September 13, 2010

Ok, here's the situation; the special was baked chicken, I was served a leg/thigh greasy and dry from the microwave. The beans taste worse than my high school cafeteria. I think their idea of customer service is " the customer is here to serve me"

“Most underrated place we ate”
Reviewed September 3, 2010

Wife and I ate there on the last day before going to the airport. Wish we had tried it sooner....like the other reviewer said- best pina coladas around! i ate sopa de pollo and mofongo and was stuffed! the soup was a small and it was bigger than the soup bowls i have at home, and it was totally home-cooked with fresh ingreDients. Also. the staff is very friendly and nice.
