16. #HotTip: Their food honestly tastes enough like homemade that you can try tricking people into thinking you made it yourself.

Been slavin' over a hot stove all day making you waffle fries and grilled chicken, so.

Yessss.

19. But... are all that rice and yuca and plantain and chicken and 163 sauces too heavy? That's OK. Their salads are here for you.
