    Sweet food mixed with a great atmosphere

    This is a very chill place in downtown Brooklyn that is a must go. The food and drinks here are amazing, no matter what you order. The Cubans are the best and the waffle on a stick (with chicken too!) is the bomb. Doesn't hurt your wallet too much and is worth the wait. I love the outdoor area that they have where you can sit outside in a relaxed setting after getting your food from a HUGE food truck looking counter. Big plus? There's a train station right outside for those, 'one too many drinks' nights.

    Great place for take out

    Walked in off the street one day. It is wonderful here. The first time I went in the woman behind the counter recommended the fish sandwich which I still get. The corn is fantastic and I take all my visitors to NY here. Most defiantly worth a visit!

    Some dishes are goods, others not

    I've been here a few times, and to summarize: some items are good and others are not. Corn is great! Cuban Sandwich, Chicken Sandwiches and some burritos are good. Fish sandwich and tacos were very greasy and not appealing. Catfish not the right fish, too fishy. A different fish like cod or sea bass, might have improved the flavor. Yellow rice could be better. Black beans are ok. Chicken cutlet w/ garlic and spinach has been inconsistent, sometime fairly good, other times greasy and bland. I'd say go for the yummy corn and a torta or burrito or cuban sandwich. Food can be inconsistent.

    Great Cuban

    The cuban sandwich is delicious and of course the corn. The space is small though and I always find myself getting knocked in the head by waiters passing through the aisles.

    Good Food & Drinks!

    The place is way too crammed when the queue gets out of line. They are way understaffed but it's great that it stays opened till midnight.

    Short of Table Help

    They need better table service or hire more help because the waitress was running around the tables and seating customers coming in that she forgot to get water for us until the end of the meal. It was hard to get her attention to get extra plates or to clear off the empty dishes (and the tables here are very small). There was an 18% tip added to the bill. The small place was crowded elbow to elbow so it's not good for a party larger than 4. Corn on the cob was delicious. You get two (2) cobs per order. Ask for chili powder on the side so you can add it on the corn to your liking. The sandwich hero bread was nice and soft for the sandwiches and the french fries were very good also. Mexican Hot Chocolate was very good with a spicy kick to it. Perhaps next time I'll try their take-out place around the corner...there's a couple of seats there where you can sit and eat.
