Best Rum Cake!
“Like other people in Downey, I first read about R & J’s on the Downey Patriot. So this week, my boyfriend and I decided to check it out and were NOT disappointed! I had the fried chicken and he had the red snapper. The chicken was so yummy, extra crispy but not dripping with oil…just perfect! Our portions were not small at all and were full with our plates but had to try a dessert. We decided on the rum cake and all I have to say is that it was by faaaar the best rum cake I’ve ever had. Julie, the owner, is so nice and welcoming…really takes the time with her customers. I will definitely be back. I live in Downey so this is perfect. Close to home and supporting a local business. The prices are very reasonable and although the outside of the business may not be “inviting” to some people don’t let that deter you from going in and giving it a try! There’s been many times when I’ve been to “nice” restaurants and walk out so disappointed with the food. I’ll take an older building with awesome food and great people over a new building with bad/bland food and rude waitresses any day. And when you’re there you have to try the muddy water…..A MUST!!”
