This spot has been a go-to for a quick and affordable dinner on Ponce since it was still acceptable to refer to the city as Hotlanta. On one side of the restaurant, there’s a counter for meat-and-two options, where the best deal is the jerk chicken with rice and beans. On the other side is the pasta counter, where you can mix-and-match different pastas and sauces - though, if you’re not in the mood to make decisions, you can’t go wrong with the turkey lasagna. Your meal will likely be less than $10 and ready before you’re even done paying, so grab your tray and find a booth by a window.
