I fed 8 adults with $60.00! Great Puerto Rican Food and plenty of leftovers

I am Puerto Rican and I know my food. The food here is authentic, good and affordable. There are so many different things that you can have, but if you don't have mofongo here, well, there is something wrong with you. Pork and Chicken Chicharrones are good as well. We order that and some steak... read more

If you want to go to a very local Caguas place not expensive and good quality food this is it. Is all about traditional places to go eat in family with variety of choices. The fried pork with onions and mofongo is the #1 plate with red sauce.

This is an iconic restaurant in Caguas. You can eat one of the most flavorful fried pork (Masitas de cerdo encebollado) meal ever. You can have it with mashed plantain (mofongo). That's only one of their many native puertorican food they prepare. They serve fish and steak too. Tried it, you won't regret it!

We'd heard about Los Gorditos on Trip Advisor but missed that it is a Puerto Rican fast food spot. We were surprised but it was great though. We stopped while in Caguas and enjoyed the experience of ordering and eating like a local. I got almost all of our meal successfully ordered without using English and call it a confidence... More

I apologize for this bias review. I grew up eating at Los Gorditos back when they pretty much only had a walk up window in downtown Caguas. Everything they make is delishes. They make a turkey dish called Pavochon, roasted turkey that taste like the Puerto Rican Famous roasted pork, so if you are not into pork, try that and... More

The food was average quality. The meat was way too salty but the portions were very adequate. Would not recommend it to anyone who's on a low sodium diet. The pricing was very reasonable.
