At this visit I got empanadas to go. They were piping hot and DELICIOUS. I brought them to dinner at my in-laws and my mother-in-lae, who typically only like home-made food went back for seconds and thirds!! At previous visits I've had the pernil and arroz con habichuelas. That is typically what I get. My husband and other fam have... More

The canoas rellenas are my favorite. The portions of meat in anything I've ordered are very generous. The burrito bowl is easily 2 or 3 meals in 1 box. Delivery is always a long wait so order early or just pick it up if you're nearby. The atmosphere at the restaurant is very nice too. Family friendly. Clean restrooms and... More

My husband and I have been ordering from here for about a year, either delivery or pick up. The food is fantastic!! Never had a bad dish. Our friend who is Puerto Rican, recently ordered from here with us and she said she was very impressed. She NEVER takes home leftovers and she took the rest of her meal home... More

I ate here with my family and two of us got a salad. One got a salad with shrimp and the other got a salad with chicken. Instead of being charged for a salad with a side of shrimp/chicken, we were double charged. We were charged for a salad and also a salad with shrimp/chicken. When this was brought to... More
