    Thanks to its sprawling back patio, this place can be a total sh*tshow in the summer - but get yourself an order of grilled corn and that perfect cuban sandwich.

    Had a frozen mango margarita and the chicken quesadilla and it was delicious! My friend had a chicken sandwich and it tasted bland.I loved the place and atmosphere and staff are pretty friendly!

    Colorful + spacious outdoor seating, which was filled with a diverse crowd. It's also solar-powered, so feel less guilty about how fast you're powering through the grilled corn & the rice + beans.

    I love that this place uses clean energy. We went over the weekend for tacos and margs. The place was bumping and had a DJ there. So much fun!

    Cash only, good drinks. Crowded on nice days, order drinks inside and grab a bite at the food truck ordering area outside. Check the outdoor movie projection schedule!

    This is a Ft Greene/Brooklyn 'see and be seen' type of spot. Go before 4pm if you can and snag a spot in the shade. It gets packed and somewhat obnoxious come evening-time.

    Best post-Brooklyn Flea frozen mojito! The fries are surprisingly fantastic—crispy on the outside, hot and soft inside. Don't miss the corn and the Cuban!

    The corn is delish. The frozen mojitos aren't amazing, but they're pretty nice on a hot day (be careful, they sneak up on you). Great weekend hangout for families during the day.

    The cuban sandwich is alright (I've had better).. but Frozen Mojitos are a must! Pretty strong and yum! Outdoor space is great, but crowded! So grab a table/seat when one's readily available!
