We had to wait 15 minutes to be seated but was awesome!! For start the chicken wings for appetizers was great. For main plates the Steak Bread was so big with rice and beans. If you're in Rio Grande area, you have to go!! Recommended!

I had the mofongo and ceviche. The ceviche was so very fresh and tasty, but could have used a bit more lime juice. They sang happy birthday to me. Never had fried cream cheese in a puffed pastry! The owner made sure we were OK....More
