The food had no flavor. Inedible. The owner picked up my full plate and never even asked if there was a problem. He didn't even say hello. What a waste, I left hungrier than I arrived.More

El Guardarraya offers a great selection of puertorrican cuisine including their trademark chuletas Can Can. But you can also indulge in arroz mamposteado, pot roast, amarrillitos, etc. The service, atmosphere and selections merrit a visit for lunch or dinner any time

Good food excellent price.We stop by recommendation of a friend. Can't complain the service, the quality of the food was authentic Puertorican cuisine. I recommend the restaurant to everyone visiting the South West side of Puerto Rico. Is an authentic Puertorican rural place.

30 minutes to sit us ( 2 ) another 20 to take our order and almost and hour to eat. Need attention to custumers. Not friendly emloyees and the food was not good. Fried plantains with a lot of oil. Nobody can it that. And...the chuleta can can, the specialty was unflavor, dry and looks bad. Maybe at the first years of doing business was the best rest in the area, now is not. Need renovations from service, food and fisical plant. Sorry im not recomend it.More

We were taken here by a local who said it was the birthplace of chuleta Pan-Pan. It was delicious and huge! We split it among three plus the tender encebollado can mamposteado, it was melt in your mouth good. The service was excellent. It was...worth the stop.More

My wife, a great friend and myself went to La Guardarraya to have lunch on the 4th. Our friend had never been at the restaurant and my wife and I came back because we love it. They were celebrating their 59 year anniversary and they...had lovely live music. We order the Chuleta Can Can their signature dish and the breaded chicken for our friend. The rice and beans was delicious the Can Can marvelous (you need to like fried pork) and the tostones (fried plantains) crispy. I also tried our friend’s chicken and was also impressed with the flavor and great texture. No doubt why they have been in business for this long with the same quality and great service as ever. Their menu is limited but everything they make is great. Recommend this place!!!!!!!!More
