    Awesome veg option- sweet potato black bean quinoa cake!! They were flavorful, hearty, smoky, sweet & spicy yet well balanced. Tostones & gallo pinto perfectly rounded out the dish. Huuuge portion.

    Great vegetarian, vegan, wheat-free and gluten-free options. Best arroz con pollo I've ever had, and the banana bread pudding was a great way to end the night. Gets busy, make a reservation!

    The Sangrita, half frozen margarita, half sangria (white OR red) is excellent. Less sweet than your typical frozen drink but still just as refreshing!

    Overpriced. The Pernil was dry and cilantro mash & sautéed kale was just OK. Jerk chicken was over-cooked, but the peas & rice it came with were delicious. The tortilla soup was good. Music was loud.
