I love Malecon. I moved to the Bronx because of it. There's the original in Yonkers, and I'm thinking of having my 40th birthday there, that's how much I love their Dominican roasted chicken, mojito (marinade) on the side, and plump, glazed sweet plaintains. (Though my dietician said I can't eat there more than once every two weeks.) But today, whilst looking up the number online to order, I saw a reveiw with only two stars. How can this be?!?! I clicked on it, and it was talking about how bad the service was. And there were a couple others talking about bad, unattentive, rude service. Huh? I don't get it. Maybe just a language barrier, that's all. Gentrifiers moving to the neighborhood not patient with English as a second language (heaven forbid). So whatever! I ordered! AND THE GUY WHO ANSWERED THE PHONE WAS NASTY. He was short with me, rude, sounded irritated, and this was after he tried telling me I was out of the delivery range ... before I told him he JUST delivered to me yesterday! This was no communicado thing. This was a guy with A LOT of attitude. Like ... ""You seem to be in a bad mood, buddy. Everything okay?"" That kind of attitude. (I still ordered though. I'm going to call and complain, but AFTER I get my food. And I'll call from the pay phone downstairs.) BE WARNED!
Pros: Dominican roasted chicken, mojito (marinade) on the side, sweet plaintains, fruit drinks, milky fruit drinks, price
