Ribs were cold. Rice & beans with sausage had no sausage. The view was nice and this place has a cute atmosphere and that's about it.

The ribs and brisket had good flavor. The pulled pork is not close to good southern pulled pork! It was dry and over cooked. The Carolina BBQ sauce tasted like white vinegar. It definitely was not Carolina BBQ sauce. The rooftop location was fun and the decor was pretty spot on. Don't think I would return to this restaurant.

The food wasn't great, but the beer (Medella Light - a Puerto Rican beer) was cold and the view was great!

This is a chain. Food was average. Service was slow. They were on Island Time. Acceptable for filling your belly, not a place to go out of the way to dine at.

It was our first night in San Juan and we were looking for a easy dinner in our hotel -- the El San Juan -- so we gave Brother Jimmy's a try. There was a long wait. Not because the restaurant was busy, as it was nearly empty by the time we got seated. There was a "kitchen delay"; not... More
