I sat down and was almost immediately served my food. Wow, that is a lot of food! Looks like I have dinner tonight or lunch tomorrow!
As I was eating my late lunch/early dinner, 4 people came in and sat at the booth next to me. I heard the woman order a taco salad and I wanted to see what it looked like. When the food was delivered to the table, that taco salad looked amazing!! I had to go over to the table and ask her if it was as good as it looked! She said that it was delicious and she always gets it when they go to there. I am getting it next time, too! The other members in the party had a Cuban wrap ($7.95), the "original 1979 salad" ($8.95) and the roast pork entree ($10.95). I wanted to take a picture, but I didn't want to interrupt their dinner party!
When the server came back over, I said that even though I was stuffed and needed a box, I had to try the flan. (is it flan that rhymes with pan or flan that rhymes with dawn?) Either way, here is my bowl of deliciousness!

Another thing to try on the next visit!
