Visited on TripAdvisor recommendation, and as usual was not disappointed. A literal hole in the wall place that one might easily skip, but I am glad we did not. Simple PR food, at an excellent price, served by cordial and appreciative owners. A place where the locals go. No ambience but good food and lots of it.

We Winter in Luquillo an love PR. The owner here makes the best Cubano sandwich we have had and we have had a few in PR over the years.

My friend convinced me to pop in for breakfast. I ordered the ham, egg, and cheese. The sandwich was quite large and very fresh. I was able to watch him make it. It was absolutely delicious and became my breakfast routine. The sandwich is only $3.50 and is large enough you could split it or save it for two meals.... More

This place touched my heart when I passed it yesterday evening, so I decided to have breakfast here morning after. We will never regret, and promise to come back. Tasty lokal food and excellent coffee

Just picked up lunch to go at La Differencia. Nice, fresh chicken, beans and rice, plus a soft drink for $5.00. Everything was very tasty. Did not eat in because it was too warm inside, but the beach was a two-block walk away so we went there. Came home with enough food for another lunch or at least a hearty... More

This restaurant looks more like a small convenience store. There are only a few tables. Everything is clean. Surprisingly, it is air-conditioned. The menu is very limited. If you want a chicken with rice and beans dish, you will be very happy. The food is delicious and is served very quickly. The portions are generous. My wife and I came... More

Service was really good and we got lunch (for us it was pork chop or chicken) and soda for 5USD. Small place, owned by father and his son. They were very nice, happy and welcoming. We are definitely going back!

We had sandwiches, which are huge, inexpensive, and very tasty! The owner is very nice and hospitable as well. Will definitely want to find this place again when we return to this area.

If you want to escape the tourist food and really have a taste of what real Puerto Rican food is all about, then this is the place.
