“Friendly service and good Puerto Rican fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

El Fogon is high on the hill with a wonderful view of the ocean, especially around sunset. The owners are present and greet you, wait on you, and chat. The food was Puerto Rican fare, you must try the mofongo.

“Great Food, Great Owners, Great Value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

On a 7 night stay in Rincon, we ate there 5 nights as it was that good! We would have eaten there more, but they are closed on Tuesdays & one day we went out for breakfast instead of dinner. By the time we left, the owners recognized our rental car!

The food was amazing! The first night there, I had the grouper and it was the best I have ever had. Each night we had something different on the menu. The ribs were great - Mom loved the sauce. We had traditional Puerto Rican food - seafood monfongo as well as Italian - eggplant rollatini. All of it was delicious.

“Love the Fat Boy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

What a great idea! I have already tried 7 different kinds of "fat boy" sandwiches... YUM!!! Start with a wonderful fresh loaf bread, fill it up with any number of yummy things (so far, my favorite is the roast beef), served up cheap at six bucks and change... great deal! The soup is the best that I have had in a restaurant in PR. Another great option from the folks that brought us EL FOGON, thanks y'all!

Thank you, Fat Boy is our idea for those who are looking to have some home style Italian food! Don't forget to try our eggplant rollatini, fried ravioli & rice balls too.

“nice food/great scenic view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Usually when I visit the west coast of the island (im a beach-lover) visited this restaurant with my sister. Good atmosphere,service and prices. Spectacular ocean view, in which you will see a beautiful sunset. I think the menu is limited, but the quality is good . This time we tried the pork ribs with yuca (cassawa) and amarillos (sweet plantain) . I invited a friend to eat with us and she love the fish (chillo).

PS Do not forget to try the mango shots are divine !!!!!!!

I will sugest the manager to remove the dogs of the entrance,they are cute, but not all the people will like dogs as a hostess ;)
