We love ethnic food from all over - European, American, Latin, Micronesian, Asian and the Caribbean islands. We found "El Pilon", a small Puerto Rican restaurant, by accident, next to a large grocery market that sold natural and homeopathic foodstuff. Being from NYC, we know what fare these restaurants offer - all tasty and fresh made. Wow! We have gone... More

My wife and her family are all Puerto Rican, so it is them I can say who introduced the cuisine to me. I havent been eating it long but I loved this place. The alcapurria and guisado my wife had was amazing. It was definitly worth the drive from the beach while we were on vacation.

Food is absolutely delicious. Friendly staff, great atmosphere and phenomenal prices. My mother and I have been here several times in the last couple of weeks. My only regret is that I didn't try this place sooner!!

The first time I went and ordered a Midnight sandwich had bones and mostly fat, instead of the pork meat that characterizes the sandwich. The second time I ordered Chicken soup and was no meat, just bones! WONT EVER GO AGAIN!

They do review on Internet them self’s so don't believe if you see good reputation. The "chef" looks drunk and very dirty. Just stay fares you can from... More

This was my first visit to El Pilon. It is located in the shopping center on the corner of Colonial Blvd and Cleveland Ave. I was surprised to learn that this restaurant offers all the goodies of Puerto Rico. From the island juice drinks to the pastries too. I had the small pieces of fried pork with plantains (monfongo). I... More
