My boyfriend and I have been coming here the last few years, and it is not always consistent. We usually order the pulpo, which is a hit or miss. Some days it is really good and some days not so much. The marinated shrimp, pernil,...and red beans are always good. My only concern is that there are barely any healthy options. Rarely do I see salad. And the vegetables, when they do have them are drenched it oil. Let them be steamed and crunchy, so people can do whatever they want with them.More

Most favorite meal and latin restaurant LechonerA El Barrio. Pernil Pork, Arroz Gandules w/ red beans, fried plantains. The best in town. This is the place Former POTUS Obama stop at when he’s in town. Chef Rickie has the touch!

Visited for the first time. Plenty of lunch specials under $6. A single plate is enough for two. Great taste!

The arroz con gandules was really good and so was the pernil. You order a plate with rice, meat, and another side--I chose Maduros. Went for lunch and had so much leftover that we had it for dinner. Would go back for sure. Not a...fancy spot but definitely a popular one with the localsMore

Honestly it's different than where I normally go but I'm glad I took a chance. The food is great and you get a lot for a little.

If you are looking for real traditional Dominican food this is the place!! Well Known by Hispanics of the area , thanks to the visit of president Barack Obama during his last campaign. The venue is small and humble but the food pays it all...and the prices starts around $5.00 bucks for the lunch special, and spect to choose a side of rice, salad, meat, and beans, what can be better than that???More

Lechonera El Barrio sitting area is not big and not confortable but the food is very good and very reasonable priced. If you feel uncomfortable with the sitting area, take it to go but pleas buy food there and you will be impressed.
