Food was ok, but not great. My dish included rice and beans but the serving size of each was very small. Chicken was a little overcooked and dry.

Enjoyed our first visit there after passing by for years! I had a cuban dish which is nice to find and my husband had an EXCELLENT pork dish. Prices were good and the portions were adequate.

The restaurant was nicely laid out with good ambiance. The wait staff was efficient and friendly. The food was very good, really enjoyed the chips and salsa. I had Carne Asada and my wife had a taco salad, both of which were very good.

The food is good and the servings are plentiful. They have a large room in back that is good for large parties. They will take reservations.
