“Our least favorite restaurant in Rincon”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

Our first restaurant on our recent trip to Rincon was not our favorite! The food was mediocre except for the oysters and coconut shrimp. We were a party of 7 and 5 of the seven had stomach problems for nearly a day after eating at Lucky 13. Prices were high and refills were automatic on soft drinks and we thought they were free since we were never asked if we wanted them. The bill was nearly 90.00 for iced tea refills never requested. Rather than make a scene we paid the $$$ bill and learned a lesson. Never under any circumstances would we every go to a Lucky 13 if there are, God forbid, any more of them in the world!!!! Beware!!!!

We are incredibly shocked at the contents of this review. To start from the top, I find it very hard to believe any of you could have had stomach problems from our establishment being that we make everything fresh every day. We get produce deliveries every afternoon to prepare for each shift. Our prices on all of our items are as low as we can make them without giving it away for free. Puerto Rico is not the easiest place to get the products you need at a low price as everything gets shipped to the island. All of our beverages have free refills except for alcohol, of course. I am very sorry that you were charged for refills, this is something that most certainly would have been appreciated being brought to our attention at the time the bill was presented. We are truly sorry you feel the need to write such a distasteful review about our establishment. We only could wish that you would return, let us know its you, and we will do what we can to make your next experience better. Or who knows, we may even open another location in Freeport, NY..

“Surprisingly good breakfast spot!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

I would have never expected a restaurant with BBQ in the name to be a great breakfast spot, but it really was. Service was average. Atmosphere is interesting, but otherwise the view wasn't great (of the busy street). French toast was great!

We're so glad you enjoyed our breakfast! Where we come from, BBQ can simply mean, great southern style food.. Alot of our inspirations come from the south. So don't let the name fool you! I'm sorry your service was only 'average' ..but it seems our food made up for it! As for the view being of the road, luckily for us, local Puerto Ricans love watching traffic! Too bad there wasn't a parade passing through on the day of your visit... Those are fun to watch! Either way, were glad you enjoyed it and hope to see you soon!

“Great place for dinner especially if you're tired of PR food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

We ate here three times for dinner during our recent stay in Rincon. It was only 3 blocks from our Casa so we thought we'd give it a shot, then we were hooked. We tried everything from the tacos to the BBQ and enjoyed all of it. My favorite was the pulled pork sandwich, but the tacos were also very good and they had numerous types. Wish we had a Lucky 13 back home.

“Tasty tacos, solid beer selection, amazing mac & cheese.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

After plenty of Coronas on our trip to Rincon, I craved a good craft beer. Lucky 13 has a good selection of just that. We most enjoyed the 413 tacos (they've got a long list of "tacos" with inventive and FRESH ingredients) and just about died in love with the mac & cheese.

The price is a little higher than a lot of quick stops for food you'll find in the area, but it was worth it to my husband and me for a non-fried, well-seasoned, creative meal.

We went two nights in a row, and would definitely recommend it. That is, except for the sangria, which was served to me hot and left much, much to be desired. Overall, a lovely stop.

We're so delighted to hear you found us to be a great find on your trip! We try our best to keep our craft beer list desirable as well with all of our fresh tacos! Our prices are as low as we can make them, unfortunately (as you noticed) most of everything on this island is shipped in.. Leaving it at a higher price. We do feel we're a little more than a 'road side stop' ..but either way glad you enjoyed!! As for your sangria, I'm so sorry you found it displeasing. Although, we had a conversation about how your server for the evening was being trained on the bar. I so wish you would have let one of us know what it was you didn't like about the sangria..however, we did notice you didn't enjoy it, and since you and your husband were both so lovely, we removed the drink from your bill..
