We craved some Mexican while in San Juan, so looked on Trip Advisor and found this spot. Do not go here. The food is absolutely terrible. I'm not sure what the other reviewers ate, but everything we received was awful. From the stale chips, to the watery "salsa," to the undercooked beef in the enchiladas. The margaritas were the only saving grace at this spot, but even those were fair at best. We asked if they had Queso and they said yes, then brought out microwaved shredded cheese with a thick layer of grease on top. I presume this is one of the things they use the microwave for that you can see in the kitchen from the dining room.

We had just gotten into town and were looking to unwind. Armando's was just a block away from our condo rental and recommended by the property owner. Awesome margaritas and tacos! Perfect meal to get us started in SJ.

This is a genuine Mexican. Bit pricey but they have some good gourmet dishes. Their service is VERY personal.

Go with a friend, make sure both of you are hungry and order a Pelangocha, you won't be disappointed.

Drink: Cadillac margarita, on the rocks, salted rim and make sure u order herradura reposado tequila inside that margarita!

Btw, love their new location!

Good food, more of a diner vibe but none the less the food was what we were looking for authentic Mexican.

Good Mexican food in a clean, friendly place. If you are in the Condado area, try it. I recommend it. Enjoy!
