Its hard to find Puerto Rican restaurants in orange county or inland empire so I was excited to find Senor Big Ed. I have been coming here for years and always get the pasteles and gandule rice. Growing up in Hawaii, we grew up eating pasteles and gandule rice...probably the influence of Puerto Ricans in Hawaii during the plantation days.... More

Clean, friendly and quick. Great food at a reasonable price. I had the wet burrito. Fresh ingredients and hot. What's more to ask?

Tried it with a Groupon offer and were we lucky! The pasteles are absolutely legit and delicious. Also had a canoa, arroz con gandules, y bacalaitos! A piece of home in Cali.

I'm Puertorican and come here quite a bit to buy frozen puertorican fritters and pasteles so I can defrost and fry anytime I get a craving. Love this place!!!

Found a deal on groupon for this place. I ordered the sampler platter so I could try all the Puerto Rican goodies.The waitress was si helpful explaining all the different dishes. It was ok but every thing was fried. Next time I'm trying the carne guisada.

I got a sampler platter and everything was good especially the ground beef wrapped in mashed potato. I had never eaten Puerto Rican food before but it was good to me.
