Close parking. Good service. Call ahead seating. Busy, but still seated within 15 minutes. Nightly specials. Good selection of drinks. Full menu. Super Cuban coffee. Can be loud with the drums and birthday singing. Good food. Been there several times always good.

The food and the service are great but it can be quite loud. If conversation is important, I might make another choice.
