Very good food. This restaurant is very loud and very busy. I didn't feel rushed but you can tell that is constantly on the go. There's a line to sit down so most likely you are going to wait to sit. We did go on a Saturday around 5pm so it was busy but we didn't have to wait, right... More

I only order take out when I'm desperate and even then the delivery time average is 45mins to 1hr & 15mins. If you call they will say it's on its way even without asking for your information! If you decide to pick up there will still be a wait time but it's much better than ordering. The food is ok... More

This place has amazing food and good prices... Their chicken Mogongo is GREAT. The restaurant is always crowded but you have the option to sit outside too.

Terrific experience, looks like they think they are in DUBAI or any other expensive city, when they're actually located at the crowdy and slappy County of Bronx in NY. Que Mofongo, and by the way, IT'S RIDICULOUSLY SMALL, (I'M NOT BEING FATTY OR FOODIE) But please... also people talking LOUD, AND screaming all the time. HORRIBLE! If you're looking for... More

Could be a great restaurant if improve customer service and it's natural drink... More

We sat outside watching the people go by and the cars stop to pick-up there very reasonably priced meals. (You know its good when the cops pull up and run in grab their order). We had a rotisserie chicken and the beef dish, it was quite tasty. The Yellow rice is exceptional.

I come here all the time with my family to eat dinner. The rotisserie chicken is amazing. I recommend having it with rice and black beans. Everything else on the menu is good but it's a bit pricey compared to other Dominican restaurants.

I recently was in the neighborhood and decided to go eat there with my family. The kids and myself enjoy the picadera of chicharron de pollo, longaniza and masita. We know that it is not on the menu but they usually ask the chef and he makes it. Pricing is not an issue. The waiter this day decided that he... More
