The food was good for the price.. nothing speculator.. but good for the price. The rice was good and the yuka was very tasty. I would recommend to those looking for a cheap, fast place to eat Puerto Rican food.

Great local place off the highway to get some authentic book. We had the puertorican rice, chicken, and ribs! Prices are affordable and worth the wait when you see lines. Oh, and they speak English there, so no need to try and translate while standing...More
