This location is simply amazing. Everyone is extremely attentive and friendly, not to mention they have great prices for those on a budget! My family and I always receive such delicate treatment when we go here. We love Laritza so much, she is one of the managers at this location and she doesn’t disappoint. She’s so nice and kind whenever we come by!! Their name is fitting! They are “gentle” indeed, I would recommend this location to any and everyone. 5 stars from me any day of the week!
