The food has got to be the worse. Absolutely no flavor, poor seasoning. The Mofongo must clearly be the worse in Puerto Rico. Unbearable, I will never return nor do I recommend it to anyone. How they stay in business is beyond me. The place could use a good cleaning also.

Most food on the menu and their specialty is fried pork or beef and some seafood , rice,beans, sides..... Mofongo and soup in situ or takeout. A local hangout for latin style food and drinks. Many repeat visits for me... Service is good, the place was clean and pricing very reasonable.

It is one of the best places to go and eat fried luncheon meat with "mofongo". The service is really fast and also they have a drove thru just in case you are in a hurry. It's not expensive and the food is very tasty. It is also a #Caguas landmark concerning gastronomy. A place you must visit if you're... More

Let's be honest, if you travel to PR you must try carne frita with mofongo as it is a traditional day here. There is many places you can find this but Los Gorditos have been doing this for generations as a fast food concept. The carne always good, no overcooked or dried and the mofongo moist and well condiment. You... More
