Taco Rico (Punta Santiago, PR): Nothing Fancy, But A Very Good Value


Taco Rico
Punta Santiago, Puerto Rico
$$$$$

 A small restaurant where you order at the counter, then they bring you your food. Our hosts, Tony and Bonnie, recommended Taco Rico, so we had to give it a try. It's a small place on Route 3 adjacent to a bar/ nightclub.


The owners are very friendly and the men spoke limited English, so our poor Spanish was put to the test. Tacos are $2, burritos $3.75-$5, burgers under $4. A whole meal including drink easily had for under $7.

The microwave was broken, thank heavens, so quesadillas and burgers weren't an option. So we went with the namesake tacos. The shells were pre-fab, but the cheese, tomatoes, and lettuce were fresh and the meat flavorful. I had a beef burrito and at $3.75 was a great tasting value with beef, beans, lettuce, tomato and cheese. The salsa was "butt-burning" good, coming in a squeeze bottle.

Taco Rico is nothing fancy, but was a very good value, hence my rating ...
