This place looks rundown from the street, but don't let that fool you. The food is fresh and extremely tasty. The chicken is some of the best I have ever had. They also have great side dished that include rice and black beans and fried yucca. I highly suggest trying this place out.

Went to MN's for Taco Tuesday as we do almost once per month for the past 5 years last night and was sorely disappointed. All of the drink dispensers were either out of product or the product was flat. After ordering, I watched at least 6 people behind me with the same order, the special, get their orders before mine...

The place is constantly busy, but the staff make short work of long lines. The first time I went there, a mistake was made somewhere along the line which significantly delayed my order getting to me; that didn't happen this time :) One minor trouble spot: if a customer accidentally spills his food on the floor, it can take a...

Mami Nora's has great food for a great price! The chicken, rice, beans, and plantains were all delicious! It isn't the nicest or cleanest restaurant, but oftentimes the best food is found at hole-in-the-wall type places. We will be back to Mami Nora's again and again!

Disappointed with soup: canned veggies & specks of meat. Fried yucca was great. Rotisserie chicken was moist. Egg, rice chicken /sausage fried dish was mediocre with little meat in it. Service was quick & friendly & everything was clean.
