This family-run BYOB located just west of the Puerto Rican flag arches on Division Street serves up authentic fare at reasonable prices. The tiny, inviting dining room, painted bright orange and decorated with a beach motif, provides clear views of the chicken rotisserie behind the counter. The most popular item here is the jibarito, a sandwich in which two flattened deep-fried plantain slices take the place of a bun. Here, they're filled with steak or garlicky chicken. A vegetarian option laced with red and orange peppers is available if you ask. (You'll get a choice of white or yellow cheese. Go for the white.) Other options include steak, chicken and pork chop dinners, all generously portioned and served with a choice of yucca, tostones (fried green plantains), sweet plantains or French fries. Forget to bring drinks? Paco's Liquors is just down the street.
