Stopped in to get lunch, excellent burger and sweet potato fries. Not terribly expensive and clearly a popular local spot. I would eat there again

Ask any native Puerto Rican if they have eaten here and the answer is usually a resounding YES! Passed by this place a few time on visits to old San Juan. One day I decided to step in for a quick bite with the family....More
