My new husband and I went to this restaurant two nights in a row! The first night was the first day of our trip and we had a full meal...pina coladas, appetizer, and entrees. The service was excellent and the food was even better! The owner of this place is so nice...he found out that we had just arrived in... More

Good food. Good service. Good atmosphere. Delicious apple crisp, big enough for 3 to share. Highly recommended. Don't be put off by the location.

We were staying at the Wyndham Rio Mar in Rio Gande. The Brads Cactus was a quick 15 minute cab ride from our hotel. The restaurant has a quaint little local bar atmosphere. The walls are covered with signs and license plates from everywhere. All the staff was very friendly. I ordered the fajita burrito which was absolutely wonderful! My... More

It looks like a run down, scary place from the outside, but if you do venture in, you will be pleasantly surprised. The food took a long time to arrive, but this may be due to a larger table ordered their food just before we sat down. We had Chirassco, a Fajita Burrito and a Mahi Mahi salad. Everything was...

Me and my family visited this place based on good comments we heard before. What a huge disappointment. The ribs and baked potato were cold and waiter said he would use the micro to take care of it. The place smells and looks very rundown. They need a bar rescue ASAP.

We may be old (21 years same location) but never are we rundown! You came in on the morning of tropical storm Bertha, by law we can not have our liquor exposed that is why the back bar was draped without full display (maybe that was your perception of run down it looks like an old house with the furniture...

I cannot understand the high ratings for this place. I read the reviews and thought it would be a good spot for our family to grab dinner. It was the worst meal we had all week in PR. We had a horrible experience. Both the food and the service were poor. Just head down the street another mile and go... More

One of our favorite restaurants here, definitely try the pulled pork enchillada caserole. We went here after hiking around rain forest all day, and walked to restuarant, which was a bit over a mile from our hotel. JB the owner, very cool old school surfer, came around and talked to us a few times while we were eating. After a... More

Good food. Good service. Kind of a neat place. Was a bit dissappointed as they no longer had the steak special that they used to have. I had the Mahi and it was pretty good. One of the few restaurants that I will eat in in Luquillo.
