Has been here twice. First time I wasn't impressed so I tried a second time. We sat down after 10 mins someone took our order. We waiting 30 mins for a chicken sandwich and some rice and beans, really? It wasn't even crowded. Got up and went to feed the meter, came back and food is nowhere close. Just got up and left. Played are overpriced for ok food. I know how Spanish food should taste like, I was born and raised in a Hispanic household. Go somewhere else. You're lucky if you get acknowledged as soon as you walk in this place!

I've been a faithful patron since their humble beginnings on Lincoln St in a small hot 2 burner kitchen. Now in their new improve location on Central Ave, I'm still a faith faithful customer. The food is the most authentic, the Pernil (pork) and Yellow rice is always delicious. The Ropa Vieja is tender and tasty. The Pupusas on Wednesday are the best around. The chicken in the oven is consistently delicious. The Alcapurrias are known by everyone to be just like in Puerto Rico. If you want a taste of real Latin Cuisine try El Sabroso. Advice if you don't want to wait order in advance or have it deliver. They have enough room to sit and enjoy your meal. And they take credit cards.
