I'm sad to say but we are in Rincon, PR now and Arturo's is gone. I've been told he was forced to leave and may have gone up to Aguada but we haven't found him yet.

When we first came to Rincon, I was a bit skeptical about buying food from the small roadside vendors. But I have to say Arturo's is great, and I'm glad we stopped! The tacos are HUGE and stuffed with good ingredients. My son who is 9 and very picky, LOVES these tacos and declares them the very best. Arturo is... More

Arturo (un mexicano) runs a roadside taco stand so let's not call for a table. Being Texan, this is best taco probably in all of PR - and price is right....all fresh ingridients....even homemade salsa. Opens after 4:00 everyday in season - worth it - trust me.

This place great, the food is fresh made right before your eyes, and the price is right. Get the soft shell tacos, full of meat. The homemade salsa is just right.

Right off the bat the man gave us a really bad attitude and the food was very expensive. The place didn't look nice at all. Do not recommend.

Arturo is great folk! He sells a basic mexican menu, good taste, great price. Keep in mind Arturo is a place to eat near the side of the road; no fancy upscale, chairs are plastic, nothing expensive just the best mexican food in rincon and posibly the west side of puerto rico made by Arturo a REAL macho mexicano.

After reading rave reviews, we found this cute roadside stand for dinner. Arturo was friendly and welcoming. He used fresh ingredients. But the food was not as great as we'd expected. I love Mexican food and have eaten at many Mexican restaurants. This was average. I was expecting it to be more flavorful. I didn't like the beef in the... More

Stopped in on a Saturday Night...great ambience..Arturo was friendly prepared the meal with fresh ingredients. Good presentation of Chimichangas...took a bite expecting authentic "Mexican" flavor...If "Salt" is the national spice..he was right on! A little disappointing..but hey, that's the way it goes. Still a great vacation!

Arturo has a great way of marinating this chicken, because it's always delicious. I tried his food one night when I couldn't decide what to eat. I'm always curious about new place's versions of Mexican food (I'm from Texas) so I'm always for trying it out! I have ordered the chicken enchilada and chicken quesadilla and both are good! The...

Arturo is actually Mexican, so that is comforting! It is a truck by the road that opens late (after 4pm). Great for a casual (very casual) dinner or late night snack. The menu is simple but complete (nachos, tacos, burritos, chimichangas..) Not expensive for the serving.
