This place has truly gone down hill & it's so upsetting. This used to be my go to place, but since the original owners got divorced and she hired a new chef, you can totally taste the difference. I ordered the usual, garlic shrimp mofongo (plantain ball) & it was tasteless. The shrimp had no flavor, and they were so... More

It looks like a hole in the wall place, but the food is very good and the service was pleasant. The garlic chicken, in particular, is fantastic. Everything else was good. The portions are plentiful and the prices are reasonable. Don't be put off by the downmarket-looking exterior.

EVERYTHING we've ever ordered here has been wonderful- only thing is that the running joke my hubby and I have, is that whatever he has ever ordered has been, "we're all out of that for today". He must have a knack for the popular... but- he's always been happy with his 2nd choice :-)

I had mixed feelings when I walked into Tata's. The decor was a bit mishmash, the place needed sprucing up. The menu intrigued me, with it's Puerto Rican cuisine, but my feelings went from mixed to downright disappointed when I asked what beers they had, was told they had Budweiser, ordered one, and then was told they were out of...

Tata's previously had very tasty food and I used to enjoy their lunch specials (although dinner prices are on the high side). On this last visit my food was very heavily salted. Since this hadn't happened before I asked if there was a different chef and was told yes. Even though I was the only customer in the restaurant the... More

We first went to Tata's for a private birthday party last year and were very impressed with the fantastic and authentic Puerto Rican food served at that time, so we decided to go back and try a few things from the menu. We can't stop!! Tata's serves the kind of food we have searched for and couldn't find for years!... More
