Been back a few times since our first visit. Food is constantly tasty and I notice a bit more salt infused than I generally eat - I was more thirsty than after Chinese food. Goat stew was a great lunch leftover treat today. And both of their pork entree, crispy and something shredded were mouth watering. I love the vibe... More

Drove up to Lawrence tonite for some authentic Spanish food. Kathy had a grilled chick n with fried plantain dish and I had Goat Stew and boiled jacca. Both were delicious. That and two beers for under 25. Loud music in the bar kept the place in the groove, best if you speak Spanish Friendly service

Their food is Delicious, and the price is right. Never have been disappointed with their food. The Business is small, and often crowded but the staff does their best to take care of everyone promptly. It's best to take the food home to enjoy it, that way you don't have to feed the parking meter, or wait for a table... More
