El Caobo has clsed down. The restaurant will not be re-opening after the hurricanes. There are plans for another restaurant by different owners to open at that location, but there is no definitive date.

This place feels like a real local joint, and the menu is traditional dishes, so we were looking forward to our dinners here. However, they ended up being a bit disappointing. The shrimp dish only had about 4 shrimp in it, and the pork chops...More

It is a small restaurant with simple and basic seating arrangements. The owner takes the orders and serves the food while his wife cooks in a little attached kitchen. They have ample choices for drinks. Food menu is not too big as I believe everything...More

So this is truly local - food is good and made to order - one at a time. So come early and be prepared to wait. Prices are reasonable and drinks are cheap. Wouldn't choose it if only here for a day or two as...More
