Stopped in for a quick bite before starting our journey to Stratford, Ontario. Ordered a quarter roasted chicken with red beans and rice. My friend enjoyed pastellos and a half chicken with rice and beans. Lemonade and water were our drink orders The rotisserie chicken was a bit greasy for my taste. The service was efficient and polite. The prices... More

Very good food. I like the arroz con gandules. Order the platanos; it comes with this red garlic sauce that is very tasty.

I'm not an expert in Hispanic food, but the food at the Niagara Cafe is excellent! I eat here at least a few times each month. The service is on point and very friendly. The chicken melts in your mouth with flavor that bursts with every bite. I definitely recommend going here for some lunch or dinner in Buffalo.

While waiting on my order, a customer made a comment that the service was slow. One of the worker that was taking orders replied, "McDonald's is down the street and is faster." Not a good way to treat customers. Gave service 1 star, but the food is good with decent price and deserves 4 stars. Definitely needs to work on... More
