The best latin foods in the area, from their fry chicken to their mofongo dishes and the drinks, such as passion fruit drinks The presentation of the dish is A plus. The staff is very friendly. The bathroom is very clean and the tables are clean not stickily with food spots. Its a hidden gem in the area. I have recommend it to very one I know and they like it.

Since they've open, they took over from others who tried to make a go of it. As with other reviewers, the location is off any main toad and small. Their success lies with their take to present what they have on their menu with outstanding flavors, aroma and honest good ole fashion cooking. This may not be the best for certain palates or cuisine type, but for Puerto Ricans, this is the real deal. Their apps like morcilla con tostones de pana spot on. Trifongo con carne frita (mofongo made with green plantains, ripe plantains and cassava with pork crackling and spices) was perfection. Asopao de pollo would make a Jewish mom envious. For those that like bacalao (cod fish), on Sundays bacalao guisado is on the menu. But they sell out quickly. Their outstanding efforts makes this small location hard to get in. In the words of Yogi Berea "Hardly anyone goes there because it's always crowded". Expansion or another location may be in it's future, but why mess up success. WEPA

I would swear my deceased mother was in the kitchen cooking. We could not ask for a better waiter Alejandro. Food delicious and service was excellent. Tiny restaurant but very nicely decorated.
Will return again and again

My first visit to Rice N Beans has been an awesome experience, and they have extensive menu offerings. We had their mofongo with pulled pork and grilled chicken with rice and beans; and it was delicious and affordable. The atmosphere and presentation of the selected menu choices of real Puerto Rican food is outstanding. The cleanliness of the restaurant and friendly staff was a big plus; and well worth the visit. I will certainly be returning to try some of their other menu selections and bring along friends & family.
