La Parilla is Kiosk #2 located right behind Luquillo beach. We usually park right behind on the grass because there's never any parking in the front. There's an entrance in the back as well and we never had to wait long. The arepas de coco are legendary, must try these! Sorruitos are fantastic too. They mainly specialize in seafood but... More

Came with the wife while staying in Rio Grande. WOW! We were looking for seafood, we found it! Many locals come here, obviously a good thing. Place isn't cheap, but definitely reasonable for what you get. Some of the best lobster I've ever had, and I've had lobster all over the Caribbean. I had the trifongo stuffed with seafood in...

It was an interesting eating experience. Everyone seemed to enjoy it. I gave it a 4 bcuz the service was a bit confusing... Others who had come after us had gotten served before us. We got 1 plate along with them and then that was it for another 10 minutes or more. Then we got a few more things, but... More

We were sat next to a waterfall that splashed on us the whole night, but the food and the flab made up for it! I do not eat seafood but if you do this is the place for you the lobsters are huge! Everything was good and the guava juice was really good!

This place is the real deal for seafood especially Lobster and Whole Fried Snapper. I have been here on many occasions and I have never been disappointed. The pricing for the Snapper is one of the best deals in Puerto Rico. Don't let the fact that this is a one time food stall. This place is the real deal and... More

My family and I on our way in from San Juan to Fajardo made it a point to stop at the kioskos in Luquillo. We happened to pass by La Parilla - so glad we did. The experience was great, service was fantastic and the food was fresh ( we got to pick out our own lobsters). My ten and... More
