We had jibaritos delivered for dinner. A jibarito is a steak sandwich with plantain instead of bread. Probably my favorite sandwich ever.

I'm not new to the restaurant, I've been coming for about 10 yrs now and I'm a Chicago native. Best Puerto Rican food I ever had. I usually stick with the chicken, Spanish rice and beans 😍 my husband and friends enjoy the jibarito's as well. The place is small, but I generally call in my order and do take... More

There is little seating, so if you have a large group, it might be better to order take-out. They do take-out as well. Parking is metered, but there is free parking on the side streets. I had the vegetarian plate, which... More

Its a B.Y.O.B. venue a little smaller in winter months due to lack of patio, but as far as a good meal for a very thrifty cost you will love it here.

The smell is great, they have nice outdoor dining in the warm weather (will that ever return?). The food is tasty and very reasonably priced. Not a big spot, but cozy.

This restaurant serves great Puerto Rican food. The staff is friendly and the restaurant's atmosphere is cozy. My favorite dish is the chicken, yellow rice, and the tostones. I will definitely go back!
