Many great options to choose from. Love the old, quaint atmosphere and family/friendly feeling staff. I had the manicotti, which was delicious. Bruschetta was a great appetizer. Had cherry cheesecake for dessert.

Had lunch at the Latin King today. If I built a house across the street from this place I wouldn’t even put a kitchen in the plans. I would eat every meal every day at the Latin King. Great food and great service. None better.

Dinners run around $15 to $20 per person + drinks and extras. There is plenty of food, it is all good, and some can go home for lunch. I haven't eaten lunch there in years, don't really know what lunches run.

There is no dress code. Reservations are only accepted for a large group. (I think it is either 6 or 8).
