Tried El Verde BBQ on a whim our first night in town. Fabulous find. Foods was very good and reasonably priced. Had batata (sweet potatoes), fried pork, chicken and rice. Menu-friendly for non-spanish speaking.

Awesome food at amazing prices!! Don't pay an at & a keg for the food at the hotels in this area. The food here is way better and well priced.

Really tasty food. The line was odd but it seems to work. The food is delicious and worth the wait. The batatas are so good and so is the pork. There is a reason you'll see so many locals there.

The food was good for the price.. nothing speculator.. but good for the price. The rice was good and the yuka was very tasty. I would recommend to those looking for a cheap, fast place to eat Puerto Rican food.

Good food and fast service. The portions are large and tasty. We went during dinner time and it was quite busy. This is a place where locals go to, so that definitely means that it is popular. A great thing.

The staff were very patient and explained everything to us. They pointed out vegetarian food for two of us. The rest ate the island's seemingly obligatory meat. Fast service. Tasty food. Great music. Good vibe. Plenty of places to sit. We even had fun watching...More
