Excellent food. I live within walking distance, and every time my friends come they make me take them.

The fried plantains are great; make sure you get there early because they run out. That is why I have never had the oxtail! I recommend the chicken and gravy or beef in gravy with a side of yellow rice or mixed rice.

There are little Formica tables to sit at, and a counter in the back, but it seems the majority of people take out. Hispanic supplies are sold here too, like Arroz spices. You can get a small or large tin of food to go, and they sell soda and beer on site. A picnic table is on the side of the plaza if you want to eat outside.

Don't be intimidated if you are not Hispanic, the staff is very friendly and will explain every dish. You can even tell them what you like, and they will recommend. Large portions for a modest price attracts a lot of people. Just stand in line and point (and say in English) if you don't know the name of what is in the serving platters. Be sure to use their hot sauce (and plantain) for your rice, delicious. And now they deliver!

It's the pork that makes this sandwich sing, for it is fresh-cut from a long-cooked roast and fairly radiates sweet-pig flavor.

A neighborhood grocery, cafe, and butcher shop, Amigo's is a friendly place frequented by locals, workmen, and visiting omnivores.

This was the pile of roast pork and sweet onions assembled to fit into my Cuban sandwich. Amigo's knife-and-fork meal of hot roast pork is a winner, too.

While all the usual North American sodas are available, I had to sample these two oddities: Goya malt beverage, made in Pennsylvania, and 'Tutifruti' soda, bottled in Mexico.

Roast pork, peppers and onions with yellow rice and beans: what a fine lunch!
