Recently visited with family group of six and treated to a wonderful culinary evening; Joe Padilla was a great host. Highly recommend but suggest making reservations.

Great food and service! We had dinner on a Sunday night after the afternoon rush hours. Chef Joe welcomed us and took the time to drive us through the whole BBQ experience. The smoked meat (carne ahumada), the ribeye steak, vegetables and fruits on the...grill and ‘mamposteado’ rice were all amazing! We even had a taste of a homemade corn ice cream with cinnamon. Everything was cooked to perfection and delicious. Thanks to Chef Joe for a very nice dinner. We strongly recommend this place and we’ll definitely be back soon.More

So far the best bbq place I have visited. The owner is super attentive and passionate about the art of local and foreign bbq without fear of experimenting with new bbq methods. The spectacular view, the ribs THE BEST. In short, the stop is mandatory.

If you need a break from traditional Puerto Rican cuisine and are in the mood for a Caribbean twist, you will not be disappointed here. The food is delicious, especially the cowboy steak, salmorejo del jueyes, and rabbit empanadas. Get the grilled veggie side too,...that was a sleeper hit. Also, their pumpkin mojito is the best thing ever. The staff were super friendly too, which just makes everything better. Highly recommended!More

Make sure you do not leave the Island without making a stop at this spot! The owner takes real pride in his cooking and everything is fantastic! My husband had the roasted pig and all the fixings and made sure to take some home! Will...definitely take friends and revisit often.More
