Stopped in for a sentimental Puerto Rican lunch with my brother, sister and mother. None of us were disappointed. We started with the tostones - amazing, crunchy on the outside with a tender center. The arroz y abichuelas were phenomenal. The chicken empanadas were crispy and full of tasty tender chicken. The hot sauce spice snuck up on me and... More

Have you ever made an unplanned stop at a restaurant simply because your restaurant of choice was too full? Well, that's how we ended up having some very good Puerto Rican cuisine. By appearance, Rincon Boriqua is normally one of those small places you would only go to because of a friend's recommendation. Let me be that friend! We ordered... More

Home made Puertoriccan comfort food. Highly recommend the tostones especiales which are fried salty plantains with chicken/ cilantro/avocado. It has a Mexican twist due to one of the owners being Mexican. Can't go wrong with anything you order. Very friendly service. They remember us each year and open early if we are waiting outside.

This is a little hole in the wall place where you order at a counter and they bring your food when it is ready. We didn't know what we were ordering, but everything was good. The lunch crowd was locals, including military personal. The diner style seating was not air conditioned, but they has fans blowing. Wait time was about... More

Excellent pernil along with the arroz and habichuelas. The alcapurrias reminded me of my childhood on the island. Friendly atmosphere and reasonable prices.

Amazing food and nice friendly atmosphere. They make you feel like home and welcoming. I felt like I was greeted by one of my uncles when I walked in the door. The food is just amazing.

The establishment may be a bit small but the taste of the food is definitely really big! Loved, loved, loved the empanadas, the tostones, & rellenos-Absolutely Delicious! The service was fast and friendly, and the prices won't hurt your budget. Absolute must go to if your visiting the northern panhandle area. Check their hours first though because I know they're...

Did some research prior to my trip to Panama City. It's about an hour away from Panama City Beach but worth the drive. The place is your typical hole in the wall. No frills but the food is amazing. The owners and their daughter are awesome people. Make you feel right at home. Everything I tried had authentic Puertorrican flavor.... More

This place was everything I could have hoped for and served the best Puerto Rican food I've had in a long time. It is small, looks like a dive (usually the best restaurants), you are served by the owner/cook and the menu is on a white board. I told him to just bring me something and I got a combination...
