2 adults, 2 kids. Adults shared stuffed burger sampler, both kids got burgers. Service was great, food came out timely and was good. Didn't live up to the hype from friends but wasn't disappointed either.

Driving by on the main road, I was a little intimidated to take the family to this venue, but I am so glad I did! From the front, it is not much to look at, but inside and out back, what a great atmosphere! The food (we all got burgers of course!) was tremendous as was the local beer, but... More

I don't remember what they were called, but the beer battered chunks of onion are addictive. I could have sat there all day munching on them. We made a point to go here after some extended family ate here a couple weeks earlier and highly recommended it. After our morning spent in El Yunque, we arrived very hungry. We sat... More

Hamburgers were small. Almost nothing in the stuffed burgers. Less fries, and no more ice buckets for the beer. Felt sad this time.
