Jack's Shack is a gem! Personable staff & fresh quality ingredients is a recipe for a Winner-Winner. Fresh Watermelon Juice & Grouper Tacos are among my favorites / not to mention their amazing Veggie Burgers! I highly recommend Jack's Shack.

I visit Jack's Shack for dinner. The mako shark with carrot purée is over cooked . The fish tacos are slimy. The service is good but the dinner is average.

The place has vegan and glutenfree options as well as many homegrown ingredients, which is nice. The service was also good and the owners were friendly. The food sadly couldn't live up to our expectations. It was fresh but the taste was not very wow...More

Serving and supporting fresh, local and organic food in Rincon, Puerto Rico. We recently moved locations and we are now in the Old Puntas Bakery, next to Happy Bowls, above the Maria's Hill. We are proud to be serving fresh breakfast, coffee, lunches, and early dinner. We still have our old favorites, like fish tacos, veggie burgers and our famous vegan, chocolate chip cookies, as well as some new, delicious items! Dine in, take-out, or if you're in a rush grab a quick yet healthy grab-and-go meal. We also now feature a small market with fresh fruits, veggies, organic snacks, beer, wine and more! CURRENTLY CLOSED FOR REMAINDER OF SUMMER. WILL REOPEN IN OCTOBER AND LOOKING FORWARD TO A GREAT WINTER SEASON. THANK YOU AS ALWAYS FOR YOUR SUPPORT.
