Awesome folks that takes the time to describe the different dishes. Prompt and just enough attention to meet every need but not be intrusive!

Boriken has delicious and authentic Puerto Rican food. It's the next best thing to being on the island. My husband grew up in Puerto Rico and it's a wonderful trip through memory lane every time we go in. It's quickly become our favorite place to dine and all our friends have loved it!

Being from Puerto Rico but not having visited the island in many years, I was so excited to see all of my favorite foods on the menu. We ordered a lot of food and everything was absolutely delicious! The owners are so welcoming too! We’ll be back!

There was a table reserved for us in this small restaurant. Our party of 5 arrived early and there was actually a "Reserved" sign on one of the larger tables for us. The staff/owners were kind and gave good recommendations. There were many menu items that were special, including a chicken stew that they only offer for a short time, homemade lemonade, and Puerto Rican coffee that they have shipped from a small grower. In addition, they have a to-die-for hot sauce that is homemade and available to buy in a bottle. We had a wonderful visit and want to come again.

We picked this place to try something new for a special day. It’s a casual place, definitely not fancy but comfortable and clean. The service was fantastic and the food was really good, affordable, and we had leftovers! We had fun trying a new place that is unpretentious, has staff that treat you well, and serves delicious food that we’ve never eaten before. We will certainly come back!

Delicious Puerto Rican food and friendly, thoughtful service. For those unaccustomed with Caribbean cuisine, the menu is focused stewed and braised meats and seafood, paired with yellow rice and plantains. Sauces are generally tomato based and not too spicy (but feel free to add a generous helping of hot sauce). The empanadillas and tostones are great for an appetizer, and you can't go wrong with any of the pernil dishes or the carne guisada.

Authentic Boricua. This restaurant serves authentic puerto rican food. No imitation nor fusion stuff, this is Real Rice and Beans with a great selection of beef, pork, chicken and seafood. Enjoyed the chuleta kan kan with a side of Mofongo.

Prices are reasonable and the place is EXTREMELY clean. Even the bathrooms are sparkling.
