The food is very good, excellent ambiance and fast service. Bring your own wine to complement the amazing dishes and flavored sangrias.

What a lovely restaurant. The appetizers were delicious - shrimp in garlic sauce, cuban sandwich, chorizos. But the star was the dates wrapped in bacon. Main courses were large and well prepared. Yes I'll drive another hour and a half to go back here.

Leave granma home unless she’s used to ethnic restaurants with flair beyond...More

This was my first visit to this restaurant. I drive past it on my way to work. The staff was accommodating. The food was very flavorful and abundant. I would return there again. They don't take reservation.

What others wrote about rude management is 100% true. We asked the owner (Dominic) to lower the VERY LOUD music since the speaker was right over our heads and my grandma is hard of hearing. He responded by saying "If you don't like it you...More
