We stopped by to get some food to go, seeing that the Yelp reviews were very positive. Disappointed did not even cover it. The tostones were solid, and I mean like rocks, cold and not edible. The rice was salty and dry, could have easily...More

There was tasty food, great offered menu selections, nice music playing, and friendly staff-plus a kind owner, too! Definitely enjoy going there as much as we can.

It's a small place but with excellent Puerto Rican food and great service. Portion size is good and is value for money. Highly recommend it.

We dropped in at lunch time and the welcome was so warm and friendly. The food was great, good size servings but the service, though very friendly, was very slow and unsatisfactory.

If want some delicious Puerto Rican food in a casual setting, ME Casa is your spot. Went as a party of 3 on a recent Sunday evening and not one bite was disappointing. Attentive, nice service in a cozy subterranean space. Every dish we ordered...More

Found this place in an ad and I bought one for two people. The place is a whole-in-the-wall but boy it is clean with nice ambience and the food is authentically Puerto Rican! Loved and I will definitely try it again!

I heard good things of this restaurant but when we sat down to eat there on Sunday I thought we were never going to leave. It was almost an hour before we saw an appetizer and another hour before we saw our dinner. No refills...More

Came in for dinner on a Thursday night at around 8 and had a much better experience with the food this time around. We had a Groupon deal, which included an appetizer, two entrees, and two soft drinks. To start, we ordered the Papas Rellena...More

So good! I live across the street from this place and was hungry so I decided to check it out with my boyfriend. The place that was there before was not good at all. It is a new restaurant with new owners. Boy was I pleasantly surprised. The appetizers Empanadas and trio of Monfongos are freaking to die for. I am not of Puerto Rican decent but I have seen the light of what I have been missing. The Entrees were equally as tasty, my boyfriend had the pork and I had the chicken with Aji Verde sauce. So yummy , the owner calls this his money sauce, which could not be any further from the truth. I know online their menu was like family style but that is a typo they serve single entrees. I was a chef for over ten years before I got into food sales. I know my food! This place is a diamond in the rough excellent.
