SF Weekly's Description

Lively, informal neighborhood spot, sunny during the day, grungy at night, serving inexpensive tapas inspired by Caribbean (jerk chicken), Cuban (sautéed plantains), and Cajun-Creole (Cajun shrimp) cooking. Wash down the hearty, flavorful food with a pitcher of the popular sangria. No reservations, but turnover is brisk.

    Although it gets crowded, I love this restaurant... I always order the chicken quesadilla and fried banana's and of course, Sangria!
