Description: Southern Style Smoke BBQ with a Caribbean twist. Right in the heart of the historic Santurce neighborhood in plain view of the famous 100 year old Farmer's Market "La Placita". Just minutes away from Old San Juan, Condado and Isla Verde. Come and join us for some great Caribbean - Tennessee BBQ along with some great blues music in a great environment and overall great area to walk around and explore afterwards. We also have a Southern Brunch on Saturday's and Sunday's.

Love this place, the decor is nothing fancy for the food is phenomenal and a must visit when you go to PR! I took hubby here for a low-key birthday dinner and we both loved it. I especially love the brisket served inside an avocado since I like to do keto-esque meals when I travel and I don't eat gluten. He had the fries and ribs and loved everything. Super deelish!

We found this hidden gem from fellow Trip Advisors! If you love BBQ and great drinks you can’t go wrong. We met the owners and they were so nice and helpful. If we are in San Juan again we will be back.

Great BBQ, huge portions...the avocado and pulled pork dish was amazing...we did the sampler for two and it was great but took half home as it was so much...ribs awesome, great pulled pork and huge juicy chicken...Alex took great care of us...come early as we came late and they ran out of brisket and deserts but that just tells how fresh and good the food is
