Our driver have taken us to this restaurant and said he has eaten there several times. We love the variety of food the atmosphere and how inexpensive it is to eat there. This is a gem not to be ignored. El Pecos you are on the money

Always been the best food. I love the fig salad!! A must try if you're visiting T&T! Whatever your diet, Pecos has something suited to you. The layout is great also, you get a nice view of the ave but not directly in the sun. 10/10

I just LOVE El Pecos. I think they provide the best home cooked meal you can get outside of home. I don't buy food from any and everybody, but I've been buying from El Pecos closing on a decade now. The fact that they are always busy is a testament to the great quality of food. Great hygiene standards as... More

Buffet style, a good set of very tasty classic Caribbean options. I particularly liked the stew beef. Very clean setup, which is important in my opinion.

I was able to obtain vegan options. However, I was too late for the dumplings. Provide patrons with gloves for health reasons when choosing dishes. Line moved quickly. Purchased lunch for 4 for about $30.00 US. Food fresh, employees pleasant. Difficult finding a park close by. But walked off the extra calories consumed by walking back to car.

best meal for the quality and price. local dishes, lots of choices, everything tastes good. lines may look long at first but it moves along quickly. be cautious about the wreckers, you have to park on the side streets unless you want to fork out $500.

The range of choices and great flavors made this a culinary treat. I enjoyed the vegetarian and mea choices the ribs were succulent and mouth-watering, as indeed, were all the dishes. The cost was quite good.

i think the food completely represent the trini culture foods on the whole. You don't have to worry about service because they charge by the weight so you dish out your food and customize your box to your own liking. The prices are excellent as well. If i can- i will eat there everyday
