Ok,so this place is noisy,and full everyday,and maybe you don't really like a Mariachi band interrupting your meal , but....The food is really good! Don't expect high Mexican cuisine..this place serves straight uncomplicated really delicious Mexican food. Very good "Pico de gallo","queso fundido" ,etc..you get the idea,and the Margaritas are very,very good. This restaurant started more than 40 years ago... More

We were a total of 9 persons, We had 3 double Fajitas for two people all they gave was 5 tortillas for each couple? 2.5 for each? don't worry they'll give you 5 more for $2.00. Didn't give you sour cream or tomatoes? don't worry they'll charge you $2.00 more each. Food is good (not great), Mariachis are good. OOOh... More

I went to this place thinking it offered something extraordinary taking into account that the parking lot is always very crowded. Indeed, the restaurant was crowded inside. Food flavor (burrito) was average and the service was below terrible. The waiter was very busy and very rude. I am never returning to this place!!

If you are looking for an authentic Mexican restaurant in Puerto Rico this is the best! Not their swiss burritos and pork tacos are simply the best I had in my life. When I go to PR this is the first place I go after the airport. They have a restaurant and a carry out area, we usually go to... More

This place has been going forever. vi been going since I was a little kid and now I go with my family and kids. Pork tacos has to be one of the best things here but everything is so good that is dificult to pick one. My faves are Tacos, burrito suizo de carnitas, chihuahua, filete azteca and the carnitas....

My girlfriend and I decided to check out Aurorita one night for some Mexican food. The restaurant was crowded with many people, and it was very busy and extremely loud. This is one of the loudest restaurants in which I have ever been. I'm not sure why it's that noisy. We were quickly seated and given menus. Our drinks were... More

I went last thursday night. It was full, but there was an empty table so we were lucky. We ordered an appetizer, nachos with carnitas. It was Good. The main food came 3 minutes after the nachos came out. Too fast so we didnt have time to actually enjoy the nachos. We ordered the Burrito Suizo Elefante. Again, it was... More

This was our favorite restaurant to visit while vacationing on the island. This last visit the servers were rude, the ambience very loud, you can barely hear the person across the table. The food is very good, but it was not a relaxing lunch experience at all. Very stressful and couldn't wait to get out of there.

This is the typical restaurant where you go with your family various times a year because it's good and has good prices. The margaritas are really good as well as the passion fruit frappe (my fav!!). It tends to get a bit loud during dinner time, but I've gotten used to it. Just a good old restaurant with good Mexican... More
