We love the rotisserie chicken at this place! We have used it to cater large gatherings and everyone always asks where we got this great chicken. Always accommodating of large orders. They also make the best Cuban sandwiches in the area. Highest recommendation.

We had a mixed dinner experience here. The cuban sandwich and black beans w/rice were very good. On the other hand, the masitas de puerco were extremely tough and did not taste fresh. We also did not care for the fried yucca and the plantains...More
