It is one of the best places to go and eat fried luncheon meat with "mofongo". The service is really fast and also they have a drove thru just in case you are in a hurry. It's not expensive and the food is very tasty. It is also a #Caguas landmark concerning gastronomy. A place you must visit if you're... More

Let's be honest, if you travel to PR you must try carne frita with mofongo as it is a traditional day here. There is many places you can find this but Los Gorditos have been doing this for generations as a fast food concept. The carne always good, no overcooked or dried and the mofongo moist and well condiment. You... More

They closed down for a bit before they renovated the place. It's great and made to order. Fresh and cheap Puerto Rican food!

For the past few years, food at Los Gorditos Bairoa Caguas has been too salty. Even seasoned meat the sell for people to cook at home. Restaurant gets crowded and staff doesn't clean up often.

We tried here because we heard it's a must to stop at while here. It was actually very good. I loved the Caldo de pollo mofongo and Tostones rellenos de pollo... It was extra good when you dip the cups in their ketchup mayonnaise. Authentic puerto Rican Fast food. Delish!

I am Puerto Rican and I know my food. The food here is authentic, good and affordable. There are so many different things that you can have, but if you don't have mofongo here, well, there is something wrong with you. Pork and Chicken Chicharrones are good as well. We order that and some steak, ripe plantains and arroz con... More
