Why dine with us?

Here at Cocina Borinquena, we serve real homecooked foods. All of our recipes are handed from down generation to generation in the family. We serve foods we grew up eating. One of the biggest compliments we receive is, "This tastes just like my grandmother used to make it!" Besides that, our decorations, murals of our family home in Puerto Rico, and a mural of my grandfather dancing in the streets of San Juan are all personal touches that we'd love to share with you. That, along with our friendly staff, keep our customers coming back!
