Love the Burrito de Pastor! Taco Pastor! Chimichangas! Make sure to mix the hot salsa with the mild for more flavor. Best flan de coco in Puerto Rico. Owners are very hands-on and legit. Highly recommend.

This is a relatively small restaurant, but the food is excellent. We were pleasantly surprised and enjoyed several meals there. The Ceviche is incredible and service was prompt and attentive. This may be the best Mexican food that I have experienced. Would definitely go back...More
