Never had a bad meal here. Servings area huge and consistently good. This is where the locals hang out. It's no frills, but who cares?

Surprisingly good breakfast, Cuban style. Try the steak and eggs. The Cuban lunch and dinner menu looked pretty good. Pleasant accommodating staff.

Stopped in with a party of 8, heard it was good food and a tremendous value. That part was true, huge portions for under $10, so much you have to take 1/2 home. Staff was polite, the cook was very friendly and attentive. We were...More
