We enjoyed our lunch here, seems to be a local hot spot which was cool. Good plantains and loved the beans! I agree that service could have been a bit more attentive, but they were busy. Will go back again when in the area.

We got the beef elpinyanas? They where only $2 and they where the best thing i've ever eaten! I also had the fried grouper, it was a little spicy but also fantastic!

While we're glad you all enjoyed the plantains and our rice, Alice, it's obviously disappointing no one was impressed by their main dish. That really isn't typical, since we're known for our tasty food, so we hope for another chance at showing you all just...More
