To start, this is one of my favorite places to eat when I visit the East coast. I seriously can't get enough of it and they never disappoint.

The food is consistently excellent. We have gone there for lunch and the service is pleasant and inviting. Seems that everyone in the restaurant orders at least one mofongo per table. Can't wait to go back again
