I was passing by going to another rest when I saw this place. We decided to come for lunch the next day and it was great!! Super rico, just like home. I am from Panama and it's hard to get hispanic food in the city that resembles the one from home. Try the pernil and the soup, and we spend less than $20 and ate soooooo much. In this recession, this place is worht every penny. Everyone should go, is more of a mom and pop place, so don't sit there reading this and try it out.Buen provecho!

This is a tiny place but if you can get at a table you will be fine. I love their bacalao guisado and pollo guisado (stewed cod and stuwed chicken). My friend loves their chicken soup. I am going to try their pasteles next. The maduros are delicious too. The people that work there are so so sweet you feel right at home even if you are at the counter by yourself.

The food is excellent, wonderful portions for an outstanding price and they deliver too! Try their rotisserie chicken with black beans and rice or yellow rice accompanied by their yummy advocado salad. If you think you will have room for dessert then the flan is cool, creamy and perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth!

Pernil to die for, yummy chicken. Basic foods here with large portions you can't beat! Highly recommend for takeout.

Gena's Grill is by far my favorite place to eat in the city. The food is some of the best around, and the value and portions can't be beat. You always get kind and friendly service, and the friendly staff and neighbors always add the "home away from home" touch.

This is a teeny little place, two tables and a counter so takeout is advisable but this place is so delicious. The garlic sauce for the tostones is one of my top cravings in the city. They have a drink called Orange Dream that's like a melted Orange Julius, I highly suggest it.
