Some highlights of their menu: Empanadillas for $2, Medley De Platanos – for $3, Gandules Dip for only $3.5, and their famous Flan for just $3. Oh, and we can’t forget! Topped with their auntie’s Magic Caldo Sauce, the Carne Frita is absolutely delicious! Their Carne Frita is bone in “pork wings” that they marinate overnight in a special rub from a family recipe — is absolutely delicious!
