You can order off the menu or go with the buffet. I got the lunch buffet for $10 and everything was amazing! You won't be disappointed!

We went with four couples. We go here frequently the food is usually very consistent but two of us had the baby Pernil which was very dry and not too flavorful.

This is my second time to this restaurant and once again I'm pleased to say the food was awesome!! Was fortunate this time to have met the Chef, very friendly and courteous and made us feel at home. Don't let the outside of this place fool you, it is small but very inviting and very nicely decorated. I can't wait... More

We have family who insist on going every time they come to visit, not that we ever object. Everything on the menu is good but the baby pernil is my favorite. Service is always friendly. You won't be disappointed.
