just awesome!

went here with a friend and now I stop by every chance I get. I always get the buffet they have going on from 11 to 3 pm and even if it's the same, I could never get tired of it! ^_^ love this food!

If you are looking for authentic Puerto Rican food, this is not the restaurant for you!! I am Puerto Rican, raised in Chicago. Their Jibarito had roast pork on it, they would not make it with steak. Their accapurias were horrible and they charged $2.50 for one. In NY or Chicago one is $.75. Their prices are way too high! These are simple dishes they are serving. The rice had little flavor I could tell they didn't use sofrito an they used little sazon. The ropa vieja was average. The cooks are Mexican. Not to say Mexicans can't cook good PR'n food but generally we season food diferently. I wouldn't get asada tacos from a restaurant that is advertised as a Puerto Rican Restaurant, hopefully you get the point! Don't go there with high expectations, especially if you are familiar with PR'n cuisine.



Just Great!

I'm Puerto Rican and this food is soooo good! The staff speak spanish so I have to translate for my boyfriend ha. Although, every time I go, they don't have tres leches cake. Best time to go is around lunchtime or a little after. Nighttime gets really packed. I prefer to call ahead of time and pick up the food.

Go to this place. I've been there plenty of times and it gets really packed. Yes the food is authentic! Try the buffet. It is very reasonably priced. The tembleque is awesome!!



pueto rican food

It's not the best food. The spices are a little bland and odd. The staff is friendly and the happy hour is quite reasonable. Not on the best side of town though.
