This place is unpretentious and the real deal. Its not the prettiest of places and doesnt try to be. It is however clean, welcoming to all, and they serve and absolutely remarkable Puerto Rican culinary feast. The food is cafeteria style, the prices are cheap, and the taste and value is "primo". You will see patrons wearing expensive suits, to... More

The family who runs this restaurant are truly wonderful, they treat me well everything I come in. I usually order the steak and onions, with rice and beans, and the portions are enough to dine on for 2 days! Such good food and great customer service!

Very good food. Good portions for the price and very friendly staff👍 Big variety of Spanish food to choose from. Definitely a great place to eat. It's more of a carry out but there are a few tables and chairs to dine in if you'd like.

I can't say enough about this place. Everything I've had is really tasty. The beans and rice are solid and every different meat I've tried is good. Especially love the pastillos (I think that is what they're called... the meat pastires) as a quick cheap snack.

Good food, very large portions for a reasonable price. Everything is good. The roast pork is great to order ahead for holidays when you don't feel like making it yourself.

The food is delicious. You get a lot of food for a reasonable price. I bought food there for my family. I ordered the red rice and beans with the pork meat. I got a couple of acapudias to go as well.

The food is Good. but the empanadilla are flavorless. Taste like they just put salt on the meat and nothing else. No Puerto Rican flavor like SOFRITO. What is up with that.

Rice and beans are only the beginning of an authentic PR dish. Choose from several local entrees that are prepared from scratch daily. Pastilles and more traditional PR favorites.
