I'm a brisket junkie, it this was excellent. Good crust on outside, tender to eat. Portion was better than i expected. It is in the El San Juan Resort and Casino, so everything there is more costly than most. If you like good food, very casual atmosphere, then forgot about the cost and enjoy. I'll go back. Oh, and the... More

Says sports bar and its on the 10th floor which at night have amazing views. We had kids and were very disappointed they were playing very loud music that was COMPLETELY INAPPROPRIATE (literally every other song had an F word in it or a B word in it and was mostly rap). I get its a sports bar but they... More

Great place for a group dinner. Informal and light atmosphere with good food and drinks. As it sits on an open terrace at the top of El San Juan Hotel you also have a great view to enjoy. Last night I had the southern style BBQ ribs which were done to perfection. The meal was served hot and remained hot... More

This rib house sits on the top floor of the El San Juan Resort & Casino. The views were breathtaking and the food was very good for the price/value. It's a fun and casual atmosphere, totally different from the rest of the hote. The views alone along with some great cocktails are worth the visit!

In fact he was the rudest person we encountered during our entire weeks stay in PR. We only came here because there was a private party at the casino bar and we couldn't get in. The place was pretty beat for a Saturday night. While sitting at a table talking and contemplating our next move the bar tender harshly and... More

Stopped by Brother Jimmy's to catch the Sunday night NFL game with my wife (both Packer's fans). View was great, beer was cold, and service was ok. They stopped asking us if we wanted anything else to drink about 45 minutes before close... I think the bartenders were ready to get out of there. Bartenders did keep my wife's Magic... More

Arrived late one night and ordered salads and drinks. They were out of coronas on Thursday night, so I ordered a moijito. $12.50 was the price. 2 salads and 3 drinks came to $55.00 Lots of TVs for sports viewing. We watched Lebrun James lose..... Plenty of space for large parties.

I've been here several times. The foods not fantastic BBQ but it's good and you can't beat the price. The view is really fantastic. The bartender, well I love him, he's a hoot! Always remembers us. So if you are staying at the El San Juan, and don't want to get all gussied up for the downstairs restaurants, this is... More
