This used to be one of my favorite places in Silverlake. Apparently there are new owners and they haven't had a positive effect on the food. The service is very friendly and accommodating but I had the worst 1/2 roasted chicken I have ever had....More

Eating here is like eating in a Cuban family's home. Authentic and simple food honestly prepared and presented at affordable prices. Friendly service. Parking is a bit of a pain but that's LA.
