This is a fantastic Mom and Pop restaurant between the airport and Destin. They treated us like family and was bringing out food to try. All of it was fantastic. Service is their number one priority. I highly recommend visiting this restaurant.

Excellent pernil along with the arroz and habichuelas. The alcapurrias reminded me of my childhood on the island. Friendly atmosphere and reasonable prices.
