Excellent local food! Nicely presented menu and very friendly staff. Food portions are big, so they can be shared. Dining room space is slightly small for all people seeking services. I recommend reservations and/or arriving early.

Nice local family restaurant. It's small, so it gets crowded quickly. The service is fast and food is well priced and good.

They give you a lot of food to eat and you get your money's worth. The people were friendly.If you are on a budget this place maybe quite pricey. It was authentic Puerto Rican food!

Really friendly service and fresh Puerto Rican cuisine. I've eaten here a couple of times and the food is great. Try the Don Pepe sauce. It is very good....very hot as well but with flavor.
