Many CHers have posted great things about both locations. We were promptly seated at 6:00 last evening, only to wait 30+ mins or so for appetizers. I'm not a fan of large portions, but three of us were not given enough rice to even feed my 4-yr old daughter. A request for more yielded a "cereal bowl" of rice (and a charge of $4.50 for rice and beans). The arepas and pollo adobo were not bad, though the tostones were dripping in oil. We left underwhelmed.
