Live in NYC my entire life. The place has been there for decades. Go there and eat. The food is excellent.

I love this place. The menu has a kind of grand simplicity to it and the basic dishes are great. Things like garlic shrimp and baked chicken are superb, the back beans delicious and the rice - well - OK. It's down home Spanish cuisine done up right.

Discovered by chance one random evening when we were bored with our usual choices, we decided to order from an untried source. What a pleasant surprise for a couple of foodies who otherwise never would have ordered from here (based on appearances). The Pork Mofongo was excellent, and the unattractively yet honestly named Soupy Rice (Shrimp and Chicken) were outstanding. Very flavorful with lots of meat/shrimp (although one has to watch out for the chicken bones) and quite complex. Plenty of leftovers for the next day too. We look forward to trying everything else!

I was very excited after I found this place - truely wonderful pernil, and I have also had the best roast chicken, and a nicely done octopus stew. There is a simplicity about the service and the food that I admire. No need for gimmicks here - just do the basics well. I love it.

this restaurant is the best restaurant of Brooklyn and maybe even NY. I love the food there, it is amazing, the chicken is the best, they got the chickens roasting there all day long. The portions are huge, enough for two and a half people, all the food is great. Its the best Dominican food I ever tasted. The service is very good too. The people are very friendly and cooperate nicely. The place looks very nice, but can look nicer. Overall I rate this restaurant a 5!!

I go to this place often with my friends and family. It has the best Latin food around, especially for the prices. The rotisserie chicken is delicious. We often buy one to have at home on weeks when we are too busy to cook. The portions are big enough for two meals. The mofongo with pork is kind of oily but very good. Although its exterior isn't very appealing, the inside is passable. Once you start eating and talking, you'll forget everything.

I loved it it's a small but great place to eat if you're looking for good spanish food. The Broiled Chicken pollo al horno delicious. I had the breast which is usually dry in some restaurants but this place is fantastic! It was juicy and very tasty and the beans were awesome great taste. Although the price was good, I get more in the BX. But no complaints because its definitely a gem in the neighborhood great food!
