Great food! Traditional Puerto Rican chicken and pork BBQ. Don’t miss arroz con gandules/habichuelas and plantains as side dish. The food is good, but nothing especial in drinks.. Is not a fancy place, but food is authentic and affordable. A great value..

I use to go to this restaurant when I was a teenager, and my dad use to buy the cuchfritos platter for my mom. I didn't like the platter, I don't like pig ears, pig's feet, or pig snout. But when I try to Manhattan, that is the place I buy my alcapurrias, and relleno de papas, (potato balls filled... More

After looking on the web to see if there were any cuchiftrito's listed I was surprised to find one listed and actually named "cuchifrito". After reading the reviews on other websites such as Yelp all of which gave glowing reviews of this cuchifrito we decided to try it while visiting NYC. First of all if you are looking for a... More
