Great bar food and laid back atmosphere. The special drink is a frozen mango rum thing, it's delicious and strong! Food is pretty cheap for its quality, bacon cheddar burger and the chicken caesar salad were our faves

I ate here a couple of times so I can watch the NBA playoffs. Their food is good and they have an incredible hot sauce. They screwed the bun on my blue cheese burger, it was stale. How they screwed up the bun I don't know. Everything else was awesome. Good coleslaw too.

All of the American expats hang out here along with a handful of locals. We enjoyed stopping by because they played good music and showed sports on the tv. The Tiki Toss is also a great game to pass some time. We had food on two occassions, the first night the meals were really good. Plentiful amount of wedges/fries and... More

I came here for lunch and the burger i had was great. Good quality meat. They also have really cheap beers in happy hour. Known as the gringo bar, so theres no shortage of expats here

If you want cheap beer , good burgers and killer wings. Toro Loco will not disappoint. Delightfully inappropriate decor and lots of TV screens abound here. Only thing which would make it better would be AC

Good happy hour with 1.50 drinks. They had 5 or 6 screens showing the champions league semifinals with commentary. I didn't get food myself but it looked good.

I went to Toro Loco the other night & they had fantastic new specials on the menu. My friend and I shared a beat & blue cheese salad with almonds, fresh arribiata & carbonara pastas. Too bad the fish soup was already sold out! The price was just right for anyone on a shoestring and the vibes, well they are... More

Local hang out, great burger, and an attentive staff. My favorite lunch spot on the island. What else do you need to know.

This place was the best we could do for sports. We were desperately looking to watch NFL football, and this place was our safe haven. They have lots of TV's and you can catch some games. If they don't have it, the owner was kind enough to stream it from his computer - it got the job done. The ownership... More
