“Great Food (& beers)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

When we first stopped by this place we were approached off the sidewalk. Having already ate (at two other kioskos) we decided to grab a quick drink. Initially we avoided as we wanted to try new things and it had a very American feel. We noticed the Tigers game was on (quick preview or score update), the staff saw our interest and switched the game on right away.

Although we're not 'bar-folk' the staff was so incredibly warm and genuine. We kept hearing about the BBQ sauce and how we needed to try it.

The next night we returned. Again, service was second to none. Even though we had only been there 45min the night before they welcomed us in the same as regulars.

We ordered the Epic Burger and Pig Wings. Both were great, although Pig Wings takes the ribbon. We stuck around for a fried ice cream (tip: know it takes about 15min to set, so give your server a heads up early).

Everything was great. We're stopping by again on Thursday before we head home. Doug has mentioned he hopes to be able to ship his sauce in the future. When he does we'll be buying it up! This was one of the best sauces I've ever tasted. (tip: they have a number of great local sauces/mustards that you can ask to try.)

“BBQ Ribs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014 via mobile

This was some great food! Doug knows BBQ (even being a California guy). Great food & great service on a really busy night. Only thing I needed was more napkins!

“Amazing beer selection, even better food! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

We stumbled into this place along Luquillo Beach while returning from El Yunque. It's in the middle of all the kiosks and had a good vibe. The kids loved the traditional chicken fingers and burgers. We had the daily catch of grouper in garlic sauce with fried plantains and chicken mofongo. Both were so good. Amazing flavors and moist and perfectly cooked. Best mofongo so far! Friendly and good service. I asked for a hoppy beer and the local went to the back and got me a beer out of his private stash! Milly was a great server!

“First time here...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

Absolutely disgusted! The manager was friendly at the door, claimed he could provide what we wanted to eat, then at the table we were served fish sticks! Who wants to eat fish sticks on vacation!!! Then the food was cold upon a long awaited arrival, our food didn't even come out together! One of the plates had to be sent back and the manager just brought the bill, but never brought the actual plate. The water tasted like bleach! I will NEVER go there again and will also NEVER recommend it to anyone. Horrible with American tourists!

“Good bbq in pr”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

I am from Austin Texas, so have had my fair share of BBQ. After eating several Puerto Rican dishes (all good but similar) it was time to try an old favorite with a new spin. We met the owner who left northern California to open this place. Man is it good. It is probably the nicest place along all the kiosks. Recommend pig wings.
