We saw the reviews and gave this place a try. So very happy we did!
It was fun and eclectic, with great food and drinks.
The converted gas station is unique and well done, kudos to the owners for not only fabulous food but an all around cool dining experience.
Staff was friendly and attentive, and the prices were very reasonable.
I had tried Mufongo in other places on the island and really didn't care for it, thought I would give it another try this trip. The garlic Mufongo with barbecued chicken was outstanding and the cocotazo drink was like drinking coconut pudding, so smooth and yummy.
We will be back on our next trip.

Amazing pulled pork, shrimp pinchos, whole fish especially good. You must order the baby sweet banana and vanilla ice cream pastry! Nuyorican BBQ and grill. Stylish and hip and friendly. You will feel at home.

La Estacion was excellent. The food was well-cooked and flavorful, and the value was exceptional for the quality of the meal.

We visited on a Friday night just when the restaurant was starting to get busy. We waited just under the 45 minutes we were quoted, but soaking up the eclectic ambience, and the smell of the grill with drinks in the bar made the wait seem pretty easy.

I ordered one of the specials, the mahi-mahi, and it was superbly cooked and seasoned. The fish was fresh, light and tender. To start I had the BBQ pork stuffed arepa, with a carribean Cole slaw that was amazing. My wife order a pincho of grilled chicken as a starter and it was practicalluh enough for a meal and was some of the juciest, most flavorful chicken I've ever had.

We'd definitely recommend La Estacion!

We had a great meal here last night. Our hostess Maybelline, was lovely, and eager to answer questions about the food. The lobster mofongo was like lobster pudding, the barbecue was awesome too. Love the laid back atmosphere, like Gilligans island. We're going to try to return again.

Sitting outside on La Estacion's patio, drinking a delicious cocotazo, life doesn't seem like it could get any better. The vegetarian platter is welcome for those of us who don't eat meat (or who have od'ed on pork already), and the mafongo is very good. Not the best food in fajardo, but very, very good.
