  • “I always get the medio pollo w/yellow rice and black beans and tostones or meduros and it's always soooo good. Very flavorful and tasty. Party in my mouth. I did get the empanaditas once but will never order them again, I expected them to be different similar to Havana Central's empanadas but they were really dry and not tasty. Besides that, though, great food here.”

  • “One of the worst ordering experiences I've had in NYC in almost 10 years. 1.5 hours after I placed my order I call them to figure out what's going on. First they hang up on me. Then they lie to me about the manager not being there. Then he magically appears after I tell them I'll be coming down there to discuss. Then he yells at me and I received no refund for the terrible service or lateness. ”

  • “Terrible customer service. Food was not ready until 20 minutes after it was supposed to be (ordered to pick up) They admitted to me that they forgot to make the main item I ordered. They did not offer to do anything to accommodate for the long wait. The food is good. But they don't care about your experience. I won't be getting dinner there anymore. ”

Delivery time stated was 30-45 mins, after waiting 55 mins I called to find out where the order was.."It's ready to go, just waiting for a delivery person, should be about another 15 mins"....lucky me, not only was delivery late, the food was already old, and the order was incorrect.”
