Mexican food here is the place.

This is a very good option if you want Mexican Food in San Juan. The food is great and margaritas are better. Lunch or dinner is a good place.

Visit Aurorita for the Margaritas and stay for the food. First the Margarita can be killer if you are not ready for the kick. Learn your limits and try not to go past three if its your first time. Combining Margaritas and food is important to make it through the lunch or dinner. The best appetizers are the Chihuaha Especial... More

This a nice place that I enjoy with my friends frequently, good food (could be better), but they need to review and change their menu, to refresh their offerings and also, let people enjoy their time, without being rushed by the waiters.

Aurorita, Mexican restaurant with a long tradition in Puerto Rico. The best Margaritas in town, watch out in drinking more than two of the big one's, if You're going to take a designated driver.

It has been a while since we went to this mexican restaurant and it has changed a lot... First of all theres so many servers and they don't seem to communicate effectivly between them, because they kept asking if we were being attended. Then after they served us the drinks we waited around 10 minutes that nobody showed and I... More

This busy eatery is a worth a visit for lunch or dinner. The pricing is just about right, neither a bargain nor expensive and the food is generally quite consistent. If you were to dine here 5 times not much would change from one visit to the next. It is unique in its method of service (in that it is... More

I frequent this restaurant on many occasions and have always had a good experience. If you are looking for a peaceful restaurant it's not it can get loud between the people talking and the mariachis it's all fun

We met friends for lunch and they introduced us to this wonderful spot. The pico de gallo was delicious and so were the nachos. I ordered the Ensalada de Norteña de pollo for my entrée and I'm still thinking about it today!

Aurorita has been there for ever. I have been visiting since 1990 and the food and menu is the same you had years ago. no frills..just good Mexican food and drinks.It's the neighborhood place for many ...you might get to see your high school teacher there or the governor with his family and no fuss. If in town do visit.
