The atmosphere at this restaurant was relaxed, homey, and the music channel they were playing on the TV made me want to get up and dance right there and then! The waitress was very helpful and professional, and we loved both the Mangú Tres Golpes and the Burrito Caribeño. We also tried the Passion Fruit juice, (to live for!), and... More

We really enjoyed the service and the food was outstanding. The plantains, mufongo, beans were really good. The giant Horeb burrito was outstanding.

It's my second time here and I will definitely continue to support this place. Hispanic music all the time. It makes me feel at home. Food is excellent and service is fast. I have been here for lunch only; don't know how busy it gets for dinner. They offer take out and catering. The only bad thing is that it... More

Went here today with a group of people from work for a going away outing. We had 15 people, service was fast and food was great. I had the Cubano with fries and a side of plantains. It was excellent! A friend ordered The Horeb, a large rice, beef and veggie burrito so big it looked like enough for 3... More

I never thought I could find a great cubano sandwich in Virginia!!! The bread is fresh, and there is the perfect balance of meat, cheese, pickles, and mayo mustard mix. The portion is HUGE and the fries do not disappoint! The location is kind of hidden in the corner of the mall, and they have a big selection of Caribbean... More

This place is still serving some the best food in the area. Do yourself and go. It is like eating food out of someone's home kitchen., Love this place.

Visited here after picking my husband up from the airport. Touted as Spanish, the cuisine and clientele are decidedly Lationo. My husband and daughter enjoyed Mofongo - a mashed plantains concoction - my daughter had pork and my husband shrimp, while I enjoyed my ppork with rice - all very good and super fresh. The chips and Guacamole are not... More

Visited for lunch after seeing the high marks it got on Trip Advisor. My wife had a chicken taco which was pretty unremarkable. I am vegetarian and had only two choices. I got the bean burrito with rice and plantain. The portion size was large, but the filling was just a bland mixture of starch on starch. It did come... More
