If you love street food then stop on by!! Options are local favorites and the best part is pricing. Nothing beats great food at cheap prices. Don't forget to have a beer while you are there.

Hi- if youre coming from the airport its right off the autopista- From Luquillo it is about 8-10 min depending on traffic-- I dont love tourist traps or recommending them- and this is simple and delicious. Enjoy
