Went there with family. Great tasting food. Combination of Cuban and Mexican. From Ropa Vieja & plantains to Burritos & fajitas with a twist of the other culture. Interesting concept. Delicious food though. Clean atmosphere. Prices are reasonable.

Seems like fast food but is not. Cuban tacos are my favorite with black beans and plantains. Veggie taco is very good. Summer plate is good.

Can't live my life without a little El Rey. Good peeps work here and the quality shows in the food. It's homemade and never disappoints.

Such a nice hidden gem. Seemed to be always busy at anytime of the day. Food and the drinks were just superb and just too much for us to finish. Can't complain about the price either. Keep it up like that!!!
