Have driven past this place I don't know how many times while driving Aurora.
They always appeared to have a decent crowd no matter when.
I went tonight with another couple who happen to be Haitian and lived in Miami for many years.
After 10 minutes or so into the meal I asked them if they were happy or not with this location. Both of them agreed that everything tasted very very good. One of them wished there was a hotter sauce on the table. Other than that it was for flavor ahead.
We all ordered the plate entrées. Pork, jerk chicken, borough chicken and I ordered the special steak dinner with their special rub.
Along with a couple side orders of the regular plantains. ALL ITEMS, Yum.
Consistently all meals main meats were moist and layers of their flavors. If we all felt we would order everybody's dish as we all sampled. I know I'm ready to go back and try different things on the menu. And they also have a Caribbean hash that really sounds terrific to try it.
The plant hand were perfectly flattened out and fried while leaving hardly any grease to eat. I had him straight up as others enjoy them in the dipping sauce.
I personally ordered the steak and I cannot believe how tender and juicy and flavorful it was. The black beans and rice were delicious. I had my share of Cuban food and it's the first time I've had black rice served. That's only an observation. The coleslaw was not wet and it was a compliment to the rest of the plate for balance and texture.
Well done to the people at Bongos!
