I went to this buffet and was happy to see that it offered Pastelless ( a trini dish) all year around. The sanitation is monitored and the food is yummy. You definitely need to go here to experience a Trinidad style buffet. Worth the drive and if you go at lunch, it is worth the wait.

Serve yourself, plenty of choice, pay by the weight. Usually a queue but moves fast. You're sure to find something you fancy, vegetarian options.

A self service, purchase by weight quick serve restaurant which as built a quick reputation for value, consistency and great food. The concept is simple while options are wide enough to stop for lunch daily without having the same meal twice all week. Great spot.

A great way to sample a little of all the local food. It's a buffet, and usually has a great selection. But unlike other local places, it's not intimidating for a foreigner to go there.

If you're searching for Caribbean/Trini/Creole cuisine look no further. Slip on a glove, pick up the tongs and you're off loading up your plate and any of the dozens of dishes laid out for you to select the platter of your heart's desire! Callallo, corn pie, plantains, cassava, salads, stewed pork, lamb, curried this or that, soup de jour... It's... More

This place is clean but the staff is rude. I waited about three mintes to buy a bottle of sprite only because the caahiwe was busy chatting with her friend about weekend plans and phobia going to text whom. When I interrupt they both looked at me annoyed. The good is over priced and tasteless..it sure was missing the Trini... More

Our driver have taken us to this restaurant and said he has eaten there several times. We love the variety of food the atmosphere and how inexpensive it is to eat there. This is a gem not to be ignored. El Pecos you are on the money
