- Chris CCame here as tourists, then came back as residents. Great experience both times. Delicious chicken empanadas (5 for 3.95, a steal). Wife loves their mofongo and the alcapurrias were a favorite of the kids. The bacalaítos were tasty as well. Fed a family of 5 for $40. Will be back!
- Crystal VAbsolutely hands down my favorite place to eat lunch/dinner in Old San Juan. Food tastes just like grandma used to make. Prices are very affordable and staff are friendly. Never had a bad experience here.
- Timothy KThe absolute best place to pop in for a delicious, filling, and authentic Puerto Rican meal. Located away from the busy cruiseport of Old San Juan, El Jibarito is a welcome escape from the heat for a relaxing meal. Don't expect a quick meal - be sure you have time to kick back and eat slow. The menu is packed with great options and you can't go wrong, though I recommend cubed skirt steak with onions or the Plantain tamales.
