My wife and I love mofongo (a Puerto Rican dish made with mashed plantains and yuca, and served with a curry). Went to this place for lunch, and ate mofongo. My wife bought shrimp mofongo, and I bought fish mofongo. Mofongo was great. Curry was a little monotonous (mostly tomato and red chili taste).

This is the place to go for those looking for authentic food of the Caribbean and willing to travel further west than Collins Avenue in Miami Beach. We stopped in here for a late lunch after riding bicycles around Miami for a couple hours. The location is in a small strip mall type place and the parking is tight but... More

It's a fast casual restaurant with a relaxed ambiance. The food took a little longer than usual but the Ahi Tuna Special was worth it. The Bistec Encebollado... not so much. They offer a happy hour from 4-7 Monday- Friday.

Loved the food ! Had the steak frites and the wife had the beef stew and was very happy with both. Nice hidden spot with a great menu. Will try the pork sandwich next time!

This little cafe /restaurant located just off of Alton Road is very good. My friend and I stopped here for lunch and had the fresh trout special, although a little pricey for lunch at about $19, it was very good. The fish was cooked perfectly the vegetables sauteed very nicely as well and the avocado and tomato salad was very... More

Its a local place. ITs a small Deli like storefront. Do not expect ambience! There are hardly an seats, but you will really like what you order. Take it to go. The salads are so fresh. It is in a tiny strip mall, which is hard to park in.But every time I go by, my mouth waters a little! yumm

I was a bit skeptical at first but my wife was recommended to try this place. We were not disappointed. After living and enjoying local food for years in Puerto Rico, Jimmy'z Kitchen definitely nailed the right flavor for Beef Stew. The meat was so tender, juicy and the sauce was so flavorful that anyone would appreciate. I wouldn't call... More

Reasonable prices, but this is not the place for ambiance or anything close to it. You go there for good food only. There about 4 tables inside and two outside so the seating capacity is negligible. We always go there for the Grilled Churrasco, black beans and rice, and plantains, $17.95. Everything perfectly cooked and arrives at your table steaming... More
