“Authentic Puerto Rican Food - great price!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

This place is right off a busy street and definitely a place that locals go to. The place is not fancy and there isn't really a nice seating area. I would suggest taking your food to go. We ordered the lechon and arroz con gandules which was delicious. Serving was enough for 2 of us and cost less than $8. They had everything from plantains, rice & beans, rotisserie chicken, yuca - all the local puerto rican dishes.

“Where all the locals go for bbq”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

This is a great spot for Puerto Rican bbq. We ate here two times on our trip and we were able to feed five hungry people for only $20 each time. We didnt know what everything was but tried it all and were not disappointed by any of it. The chicken, red sausage, and yuca (an interesting looking white substance that all the local got that was suprisingly deicious) is a must to get while at el verde.

“great place for cafeteria style take-out - local BBQ joint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

great BBQ chicken/pork located on a busy road. Wonderful side dishes. Everything we tried was excellent. Pleased our entire party of eight. Great food, value & service, lacking only atmosphere.
