The steak is not your typical "steakhouse" steak. It is thin and juicy and melts in your mouth. The onions add a nice bit of flavor and are big enough that you can still pick them off (if you are a hater like me.)
Just a bit of a warning - the beverages (soda) come in cans with no refills. This doesn't bother us because at $0.95 a can, you can get 2 for the same price you would pay in a restaurant for a fountain drink.
- Mofongo - served with pork skin mashed into the plantains. I prefer my mofongo skin free, but the hubby seems to enjoy it.
- Camarones a la diabla (Spicy Shrimps) - Please believe the menu when it says spicy. This is "slap your momma" spicy and you need to be prepared when ordering this. I really like this dish, but it always clears out my sinusus :)
- Pernil - Roast pork at it's finest. Enough said.
- Marcitas de carne frita - This entree consists of fried pork cubes. Again, enough said.
Make sure to bring your appetite because the portion sizes are massive...you might also want to bring some stretchy pants with you :)
On a serious note: I have no idea why the Urbanspoon rating is so low. All I can guess is that people unfamiliar with the cuisine have been bringing it down. Please don't let that discourage you. We have been going here for 3 years and have never had a bad dish.
