“Not all that and a whole lot less...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2010

Coming from NYC where you can find good restaurants in every other corner, I can tell you that El Sabroso is not all that. I have ate there several times and noticed that the portions are very small, the servers don't use head gear and if you are in a rush, don't even bother. They seem very disorganized in their process. If you go there to get some "Alcaurrias" (spanish banana fritters) you have to wait at least 20 minutes. The place is OK because there is nothing else better than this around.

The food is phenomenal! If you like Boricua food this is the place for you.
Their Mofongo with camarones is to live for. The honors are lovely people
