Nice service, I visited mostly for lunch. They change the special dishes everyday. Love the Empanada de Yuca stuff with chicken. Tostones de pana (breadfruit tostones) and Plantain tostones are really good. The carne mechada is one of their famous dishes. They bring bread with garlic and olive oil as a courtesy. They have homemade orange juice.

Good small restaurant with variety for their lunch specials. Twelve of us stopped for lunch and it was served promptly. We had several small kids so we split an adult plate for two of them. Food was typical from Puerto Rico. I would definitely come back if I'm ever back in town.

This was our second time going to the restaurant. It's located right downtown. The seating is cozy and the staff was very friendly. The food is authentic in keeping with the culture. Prices a pretty darn good too.

If you want a sandwich (pastrami, cubano, medianoche, etc), this is the place to stop. AND if you want very traditional food, always accompanied with arroz and habichuelas or tostones, this is also the place. A prefered place for locals! Don't miss it!

This restaurant sells any type of food. From sandwiches and pastries to a wide variety of Puerto Rican plates. The taste was great, the service was fast and respectful, and the environment is fun. Not a fancy place, but certainly with great food.

Was in the town taking care of some personal stuff and decided to have lunch at this landmark restaurant which brought back memories of the diners from the US. Had the Carne Mechada and Arroz Mamposteado. It was very good and the beer was really cold. I must say that it was a bit expensive but I recommend you try... More

The most horrible food I've probably ever had. I am of Latino descent and am used to typical PR food. I don't know what to call that which they served us, except horrid. We paid $30 for a small meal and couldn't even eat it. I'm tellin' ya: don't bother!
