Pleasantly surprised by La Lechonera Cafe

I live in Roslindale, and the wife and I were stressing over what to get for dinner, as the cubbard was bare so to speak. We wanted to try someplace different, and I was yearning for something like Cafe Latino downtown, and remembered that La Lechonera Cafe existed. Well what a nice surprise to find parniel in my neighborhood that is actually cooked over coals!!! I am talking smokey crispy skin, a smoke ring on the meat, the whole nine yards!!!! I came late in the day (they close at 8), so the yellow rice with pidgeon peas was not really viable, so I had white rice with beans, and the cook gave me a free piece of chicirone (spelling?) as he wasn't sure he had any crispy skin (he did!!!!). It really hit the spot, and the fellow preparing the food and working the front was very pleasant and appreciative of my business. I plan on coming back, any other CH try this place out? It's at the corner of Cummins Highway and American Legion Highway, accross from the firestation.
