I ordered $56 worth of food and got only half. This was after the lady told me it was the only bag she had for me. I live 20 minutes away and when I called them to let them know that they missed my rellano papas, all of my beans and my sweet plantains and a order of stew chicken,... More

This has to be the greatest P.R./Latin cuisine I've ever had...even in Puerto Rico itself. I recommend trying everything! My only complaint is that they don't have a nice restaurant to sit down in. I would go every day, if they had that. Mofongo Done Right-O. lol

They have an excellent Pernil (Baked Pork) and authentic Spanish food. Although it is hard to find and small inside, they were accommodating when I ordered 10 plates for a party "to go" at the last minute.

The mofongo had good flavor. The service is fast mostly take - out orders. The place is very clean and cozy. For future reference please don't serve in aluminum or plastic plates when you eat inside the restaurant.

Maybe i just had a bad experience, as this was my first time there. However, if what i experienced was the norm, i question how this location is rated a 4. I have been to many hole in the wall spots that were absolutely amazing. This was not one of them. I ordered a chicken wrap (no sour cream), a... More

This reminded us of the Heights- awesome DR/Caribbean food. The empanadas and stews were delicious, as were the maduros. Our toddler couldn't get enough of it. Be forewarned they do run out of stuff, so maybe you'd be better off going for lunch. We were there for dinner, and pickings were slightly slimmer than the printed menu, but honestly, it... More

We ordered a variety of Puerto Rican dishes and all were delicious and tasted homemade. Service staff/owners could have been friendlier, a smile goes a long way.

It's actually by dollar general right next to the Chinese restaurant. It a small place that has 1 table so it's essentially take out only. The girl behind the counter was very efficient with moving the crowd and personable. But she did forget to give me any forks or napkins. Food was average I've definitely had better. I had the...

Stopped here to get take out on our way out of town. One of my friend is Spanish and wanted to try the food. She tried an empanada first and was very happy with it so we all order stuff to go. Everyone was pleased with their selections. Reviews said the rotisserie chicken was very good but it wasn't ready... More
