This is a place mainly for typical puertorican food. Food is excellent and prices affordable. Service is great as well. Major handicap is waiting times in queue

The place has been serving this delightful pork chop cut since 1952. You will not go wrong ordering it as your primary choice. The restaurant is quaint and rustic, could use some updating; however, it makes up for it in the kitchen with the Chuletas...More

Everyone raves about the chuletas can can, and I have enjoyed them here many times in the past, but these days I find them too fatty for my taste. Not that they're done poorly here, quite the opposite, it's just what it is, a big...More

It all started in 1957, when Don Juan Vera-Martínez, an expert and impassioned gamecock breeder, started the Gallera Loma Bonita, a cockfight arena in the town of Yauco, Puerto Rico. There, he decides to open the restaurant where the famous "Can-Can" pork chops first appeared. The Can-Can pork chop became so famous that it's been copied all around the island, yet no one equals Don Juan's.
