Always great to find a great place for food. I had the pernil with rice & fried yuca and it was delicious. I see they offer week night specials. Will return for those.

A large group from work ate dinner here on evening. The service was top notch, but the food was just OK for taste. And the portion sizes were quite small, especially considering the price tag.

I would ask manager next time to control the salt/seasoning on the Ropa Vieja. Empanadas were over fried. Otherwise rice and beans and maduros were great.
