Super popular, always a line. But worth it unless you are starving. Great sandwiches using plantains instead of bread

Great place to go for lunch or dinner! By far the best Puerto Rican food in all of the bay area, unless you know someone personally that's willing to cook for you!

This is not a sit down restaurant. You order at counter and take a number., the line to get to restaurant is insane. My mango tea fresh made was fabulous!!! Puerto Rican food at its best!!!!! Everybody should come here!!!

We loved the fast service, and the excellent portion size. We had a half roasted chicken, with generous sides of plantains and salad. Outstanding and healthy meal.

I've been to Puerto Rico & I must say my Cuban sandwich & the tostones I ordered were just like in PR!! Others in my party ordered the bistek sandwich & loved it! Make sure you either order a pancho or limeade drink!

Ate lunch here recently while visiting nephew in San Rafael (his recommendation, living in area almost 2 yrs, his fave place to eat!) and enjoyed fresh-tasting, delicious authentic PR food! Very crowded, waiting about 10 mins for our table of 6. Delicious specialty drinks, loved the chicken thighs and rice! Be careful about nearby on-street parking (only until 4:00 PM,... More

This food is fantastic. My favorite is the pinto beans with olives-- add a little of their hot sauce and YUM! One of my favorite restaurants. Eat there, family style, or take out!

I must say I am a frequent visitor of this place, and have had it delivered many times. The place is crowded which I don't like. But the food is fresh and yummy with lots of options. It is informal.
