I was brought here by a local who promised us great pinchos and they did not disappoint. I had the pork pinchos. They were absolutely delicious. Its a dive bar essentially located near the road. If you want cheap drinks and eats, this is the place to get it. I doubt we could find a better pincho in... read more

My daughter and I found Willy's Pinchos after she moved into an apartment nearby. It's an outdoor bar/grill with great local flavor all the way around. The pinchos (we call them shish-k-bobs in the States) were absolutely delicious. We tried the chicken and the pork. They're grilled to perfection and brushed with a tasty BBQ-style sauce. They also have mixed... More

Went here because of all the fuzz from people I know about this place, it is even used as a landmark! LOL Anyway, the place is basically a piece of concrete on the side of a road, with some metal ceiling, a guy on a bbq making pinchos (something like chicken or meat kabobs), and a bar where people hang...

They change the price depending the person. Chances are that they charge you something now and something different minutes later which is not fair. They should have the same prices for all the people. In addition is depressing to see dogs walking between you begging for food. There are better places... On the brigth side, cheap beers and the pinchos... More

People claim this makes for good value, but before the place burned, this was just a watering hole that served pinchos, the Puerto Rican version of a shish kebob. Mine reeked of charcoal when I ordered them. I've seen more meat in pinchos served elsewhere. Don't waste any time going there unless you want to get bombed and you take... More
