Izzy's is gross.

Izzy's Restaurant sucks. The restaurant is small. The staff is not the best. The servers are overweight you know that they are eating a lot because Izzy's food is fattening. The guy at the counter is nice but again it's not enough to give this place more than one star. There is no room at all in there. I asked myself all the time why do people even go there? What do they like about this place and their nasty and tasteless food. I still can't believe this place is still open. Let me first say that most hispanic food is gross. It's too salty and taste nasty. Izzy's is a puerto-rican restaurant. Puertoricans can't cook. Why do their food is nasty let me tell you. My mother's friend is a great cook but lately she has been sick and can't cook. She lives next to Izzy's restaurant so she wanted me to order from them couple times. Every single times I was disappointed. She wanted a soup, some meat, I got some plantains, something called a potato fries. The soup was disgusting, it had not salt at all. I want a tasty soup not a soup that tastes like a hospital soup. The meat my goodness how do they get away with that. All of their meat pork, beef, chicken had no taste no salt nothing nada. I rather go to Camie's even if they are not the best haitian restaurant. Haitian can cook puertoricans can't. The rice was plain again no taste at all. The plantains same no salt, tasteless, they added a yellow sauce with it. The sauce tasted like someone threw up in it. Their sweet plantains are so sweet and so greasy, they looked so ugly. That potato fries thing was not yummy, it's called a potato fried and it has meat in it. I wanted a plain potato why did it have meat?? It was so gross it tasted like vomit. Their salad is gross and has too much sauce that of course they did not make. The worst part of their food. One time I had some white rice and beans on the side it was not cooked beans they got the beans from a can. I know my food and I know when is real cooked beans and when it's canned beans. Another day I got a rice that was mixed with beans again same thing I knew it was canned beans and the whole thing with rice was Nasty. This is unacceptable for a restaurant to serve canned beans. Haitian restaurant don't do that serve people canned beans. I was shocked to see that many people ordering food from them and all the tables were busy and full with people. The tables and chairs are so small and they have a plastic cloths on them. The whole restaurant has pictures of people all over the walls. They are really trying hard to make people think that they are the best restaurant in Cambridge. Customers were mixed blacks, hispanics and whites and a lot of black teenagers. Again I was really shocked. I also don't understand why so many haitian cab drivers eat here. Haitian restaurant are 10 times better than this nasty place. Haitian restaurants serve real and tasty food. Maybe the cabbies are too lazy to go to Somerville or other places to get real food and they are left with nasty puertorican food. I rather eat at home or order from Mcdonald's or Camie's. My mother's friend asked us to get some food for a third time there and my mother and I refused to go. We told her no way never again. I rather go hungry for days. I told her just give me the money I will eat at home and I will save it or get myself a pedicure with it. I see a lot of stars for this garbage restaurant. After 31 clueless reviews I am the one who tell you like it is. Finally this place is getting a real one star. Truereview here to tell you the truth
