“Best chicken.”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Hands down, best chicken place in Puerto Rico metropolitan area. Sides are just as great. Authentic at its best. Every time we visit Puerto Rico we have to stop by and enjoy a great hearty meal. Great casual restaurant.

“Great value, extremely tasty”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

First of all, this is a roasted chicken on a spit place. If you want a fancy meal, or something super healthy, this is the wrong place.

I thought I had written a review on this. I wonder if trip advisor is blocking my reviews.

The service is great, outstanding at times. My wife and I once ordered to go because we were in a hurry, but we had to sit and eat a bit we were already dizzy with hunger. One of the wait staff rushed over and helped us even though we had a to go order and he wouldn't get a tip.

BTW place is super cheap. $10 for a whole chicken cheap.
I hope trip advisor posts this review.

“Down to earth , local attendance”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Fuentes is a down to earth, clean, inexpensive and incredible BBQ chicken restaurant. It's decor is basic and old, but after this first impression, you realize the food is cooked fresh, well season and good service.
It's a great place that San Juan locals protect for themselves!

“Excelente pollo!”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Excellent chicken with amarillos. A family favorite when you mix the rice and beans, mofongo, guineos and batata.

“Criollo Food”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

Definitely not fancy but gresat roasted chicken. One of the truly best mofongos in town. It still uses chicharron for their mofongo and that is very difficult to obtain in San Juan.
