    The coconut chicken was amazing! Get the 1/4 chicken as it is plenty of food. And be sure to get a lemonade!

    The cha cha chicken is everything - and if you don't get that, the jerk chicken enchilada is pretty legit too

    You can't go wrong with the cha cha chicken or the coconut fried chicken. Get an agua fresca or byo!

    The cha cha chicken and jerk sauce is so good. The chicken croquette is better than the empanadas. And beware of the incredibly slow line to order. The food comes out fast otherwise.

    Coconut chicken is significantly heavier than the roasted but it's so, so good.

    Had the awesome Jerk chicken enchiladas with the dirty rice and beans and plantains. All of it was delicious with great flavors. Also, the lemonade and mango-guava Aqua frescas were refreshing.

    Very cool, laid back, casual carribean food place. Crowded but worth it. If you really don't like spicy avoid the jerk chicken

    Great dinner pregame spot before a night out in SaMo. Patio dining, BYOB, eat with your hands! $12-13 gets you a good sized plate with two sides. G

    Ignore the menu and go straight for the Jerk Chicken Enchiladas - if you can't take the heat go mild and they'll still make you smile.
