We have been twice at this place because we like the local food of PR but the food on this place has not been the quality of years before. Something has change.... and the customer service is poor.

They have staff that are not organized, and they don’t follow any Covit 19 protocols. Where is the beef because my order was bones and pig fat and soggy pig skin. I know it’s was busy but the staff was the ones holding the lines....We wait for half the meat and the sides were cold. Sorry I will avoid this place in the future.More

This time will be the last time, because its was worst than the previous one. First the "lechon" was suppose to be 2lb, but it had about 3/4lb of pure meat-off bones, looks like the person scraped the cutting board and place them in my...order. Yes, only bones like the Dr. Bones from Startrek. The "pasteles" were under Cooked and water damaged and blind, two tiny pieces of meat each and more skinny than Popoye's Olivia. It looks like they were under water for a week. The "alcapurias" if you can call that an "alcapuria" was old and greasy and over fried. This was a take out order, maybe that was the reason, but that is bad business. It's sad to se an establishment grow to be come a money making pit first and service and quality not to be found. It's a sad day. Guess what will be myMore

The service sucks, way to expensive for a lechonera and the food was not that good. Better try another of the many lechoneras along the road and skip this one. The arroz con gandules had no gandules, I’m not kidding it was ridiculous and the...lechón was eatable thats the best I can say.More

I love Lechón and was looking forward to some all week from the town of Guavate. We decided to stop at Lechonera El Mojito. The food looks delicious which you look at before you place your order. I have no complain with the food but...for my taste I feel that the meat needed a little more time of roasting. Maybe it was an off day but the next time I come to this town I’ll try another restaurant. On the plus side they sell a coconut flan which is delicious but they ran out before I could order extra to take home.More

Lot of people depending the day and hour. They offer a lot of options if you don't eat "lechon" pork. Even though the food is good it's a little pricey.

Excellent locals place just off the 52 (exit 32) as you enter Guavate. My wife says that the beans taste just like her grandmother used to make. Lechon, habichuelas con patitas, morcillas, bacalao guisado, arroz con gandules, I had it all. Great food priced right...and ready to go when you are. It took us 20 minutes to get here and we ended up eating faster than at a regular restaurant where we would order then wait 30 or more minutes and pay twice the price. Not gourmet. No waitstaff. Just authentic local food served in foam containers with plastic utensils.More

This is one of the best places to enjoy one of Puerto Rico's signature dishes - roast, spitted pork ("lechon asao"). For nine dollars, you will get at least a half-pound of the meat with crispy skin, accompanied by plantain, potato, sweet potato, and/or rice...and beans or pigeon peas. Cold bottled beers available. You're in a rural mountain setting in a rustic atmosphere. Fantastically good experience, both for locals and tourists.More
