  • Be prepared for anger and rude behavior by the cashiers if you dare to ask for extra green sauce. I was given a flat out NO and had to offer a dollar to get extra.
  • Heavy food
  • Not a fancy lunch spot. Just legit Cuban food that will satisfy your home cooked meal cravings. Try the Roast Pork (Pernil), paired with rice and beans and fried plantains...then loosen your belt.
