THE BRONX -

Customers say they are flocking to a small restaurant near the 6 train’s elevated tracks for its authentic Puerto Rican experience.

La Cocina Boricua serves food such as mofongo, steak, chicken and shrimp dishes. The restaurant opened about eight years ago.

"The food is delicious, it's fresh," says customer Denise Davis. "They're good with service. This isn't the first time I've been here, I come often."

The restaurant is complete with a stocked bar and promotes a family-friendly experience.

La Cocina Boricua is located on Westchester Avenue and is open for lunch and dinner.
