  • The goat: succulent, falling off the bone, with salty plantains (instead of salad) on the side.
  • El primo caray se me fue de vacaciones. Really good home cooked style food from el primo Izzy who is everybody's cousin (primo).
  • I love the black beans and yellow rice, fried shrimp, fried plantains, cassava with garlic, chicken and cheese patties, fried pork. The stewed beef and steak tips are tender and delicious.
  • Best Puerto Rican food around. Being coming here for the last 20 years. Flavor still the best.
  • Jamaican beef patties are warm and on point!
  • Thursday's we get roast pork subs.
  • Great food, love the fr pork. Big portions!
  • There's a Spanish menu hidden behind the counter. Only order from that. I'll give you a hint: if you are fine with pork (which is a staple of the cuisine), get the Pernil. Also, tostones.
  • The Pork Chop combo was hella bomb!!!
  • Patty, cocoa bread and cheese!
  • Try the roasted pork sandwich with cheese. It is very tasty.
  • Their roasted pork special sub available on Thursdays is the best.
  • Ean recommends getting the special of the day. Really enjoyed my steak bomb sub. Was the bomb.
  • If you've never been here, go right now. Best fried plantains in the universe, among other tastiness.
  • Great place for lunch - make sure to try the daily specials - liked the shredded beaf - great rice and beans
  • The steak tip dinner... that's all you need. And if you like plaintains, ask to substitute the salad with plaintains (green or sweet)! Also you gotta get a Jamaican beef pattie! It's got a kick to it.
