We ate here a few times during our trip. Very casual with excellent food. The ribs and tostones were the best we've ever had from anywhere (and we eat out often)! The chicken, rice and potatoes were also delicious. Allie and staff were great!

Excellent food and very reasonable on prices! We went here for lunch and dinner one night. This is a very casual place to eat and limited seating but food and prices make up for that

Good low budget Puerto Rican options. The fried pork and chicken are amazing This is not a scenic location. You are right on the road. But there is plenty of parking. Deserts of flan were small but delicious.
