Chicken, pork, rice and beans. Do not forget the bacalao. This is a real and honest Dominican fare like you would expect in DR. Their roasted chicken can compete with the best in town.

If you are used to fatty and greasy food please go to this restaurant. The service
is fast but far from friendly. Rude is the better descriptive word for the people that
work at this restaurant chain. Also, place close attention when paying for
your meal...you might not get back your correct change!! As with the "infamous"
chicken...eat at your own risk. I know of three instances
where people ended up at the hospital due to their INFAMOUS CHICKEN!!! Looks can be deceiving!!

Pros: Very Cheap food; you get what you pay for

Cons: Rude Service, quality of food, dirty restrooms

Wow, this place is delicious! The food is fantastic, the portions are insane and the price can't be beat! If you are in the mood for home-cooked food with aromas that sweep YOU away and NOT your wallet....good luck beating this find. Try the sirloin steak, the flan, the chicken and the tostones.

Pros: Good food, good price

.

Just to clarify: the food is Dominican, not Mexican or Spanish. There are 2 more locations further north as well. I love this place because the food is great and the price is too good to pass up. Best bets: Rotisserie chicken, pepper steak, cuban sandwich, steak sandwich, stewed chicken or beef... basically you can't go wrong. The coffee is delicious and only $1. Parking around the 97th location is impossible. The 175th street and Broadway location has decent street parking during the day. The 231st and Broadway location has the best parking situation. As you can see, I love this restaurant, I've been going to their Uptown locations for years.

Cons: parking, sometimes noisy

Great to find a place that has authentic spanish food-though their listed as "mexican" its actually more dominican to me. Make sure to try their coffee to put a jump in your day----much better than Starbucks and only a $1 !!!!

Pros: inexpensive, great taste

Cons: , bad parking

Absurdly cheap! My brother and I shared a whole chicken and had side dishes of brown rice and fried plantains. Then we had flan for dessert and coffee. Total bill: something like $11. You cannot possibly spend more than $6/person. We laughed outloud when the bill came. Furthermore, it's a fun joint and "as real as the streets."

Pros: value, music, price

Editorial from

Patrons flock here for whole chicken and rice and beans, but unusual desserts like majarate, or sweet corn pudding, shake things up.
