Staying down the street from this restaurant, we decided to try it one night. My mom ordered a shrimp dish, and I ordered the plantain-stuffed chicken. We were both disappointed in the shrimp, which the waiter had recommended, although she enjoyed my chicken, which was good but not amazing. My mom also ordered a half pitcher of their sangria, which was very good. Our waiter was kind and hospitable, although his hospitality could very easily become a bit annoying. This is real Puerto Rican food, although there is other Puerto Rican food available in the area without the awful service. Earlier tonight, we decided that we were going to go there and try it again. When we walked in, there was extremely loud salsa music playing and a buffet/party sort of thing going on, which didn't bother us too much and we decided to eat there anyway. After being seated in the middle of the loud music by a waiter, we waited 15-20 minutes for a waiter to walk over just to take our drink order and say hello. All this in the middle of extremely loud music, at a restaurant with only 2 tables of around 6 people each. While we were waiting, my mom could see the female waitresses dancing in the corner to the music together, while I could see all of the male waiters standing around the hosts' podium at the entrance of the restaurant. After waiting this period of time, which we found to be completely unnecessary, we decided to get up and leave as we had not even seen our waiter yet. Thankfully, no one stopped us on our way out and we went to Plato's down the street for a yummy and similarly priced dinner. It is unfortunate that Made In Puerto Rico lost us as customers because their waiters and waitresses were too busy socializing to serve their customers, although we were very happy with the food and awesome Tres Leches cake(one of my favorites) which we received at Platos just a short walk down the street.
