For me, it is one of the best restaurants in Puerto Rico for Mexican Food! Great prices, great service, but even better, awesome food!!! Ask either for a Tripleta Taco or a Key Taco! Trust me, you will enjoy it! Buen provecho!

We were staying nearby and El Churro's was suggested to us. We've been to Puerto Rico many times but never heard of it before. From outside the place you would never know how large it is. We were greeted quickly and given our choice of seating. Downstairs is a large patio, which is where we sat. The menu is all... More

This is a relatively small restaurant, but the food is excellent. We were pleasantly surprised and enjoyed several meals there. The Ceviche is incredible and service was prompt and attentive. This may be the best Mexican food that I have experienced. Would definitely go back again.

Went here from the hotel Caribe, took a taxi and it was worth it. The food is really good and has a nice atmosphere. Very reasonably price and very friendly service. The location on Tripadvisor is way off so don't use it. Get a taxi, it pays for itself since the food was great and cheaper than eating on site.... More

I had the chicken fajitas. They are SO GOOD! With a fresh home made lemonade. The service is great and prices are even better. I really recomend it to everyone.

My wife and I traveled to San Juan in May. (booked through travelrcnow.com) A friend of ours said he had some friends who owned a restaurant near Candado so we decided to check it out. The food was outstanding. I had a steak fajita that was cooked to perfection. The customer service was great and the place had great vibes.... More

This restaurant is close to Old San Juan. Very good mexican food at more or less good prices. My dorados tacos ( fried tortillas) were excellent. Specially the vegetarian taco and the beef taco. Three tacos for $7.50. My husban had the chicken burrito. The restaurant has parking. My only flaw with this restaurant is that the tables are very... More

If you are looking to eat amazing tacos, simply this is the best place so far. Love the key tacos and the chicken chimichanguitas. Highly recommended and excellent prices.
