“"Great Puertorican Food... Great Price... Open 24/7...”
If you like Puertorican food, with all its spices, grease and condiments, this is the place to come. They're always open, and always busy... so come without being in a rush cause you're going to be in line for a while, but it is worth it. They have great food at excellent prices. You can come alone, in groups, with family or friends... either way you'll leave happy and stuffed.
If this is your first time, please know that they specialize in Puertorican food and the BBQ is great. Try "arroz con gandules" (rice with pigeon peas), "yuca" (yucca with garlic, onions and oil), "platanos maduros" (ripe plantains), "batata" (sweet potato) with "pollo asado" (rotisserie chicken) or "lechon asado" (rotisserie pork) with "cuerito" (pork skin). You can choose from a variety of drinks including alcohol. They serve very large portions and other than my suggestions they also serve white rice, pork, stewed chicken, beans, fried plantains, blood sausage "morcillas", mondongo "tripe" and much more.
This is not a fancy place, so if you except to find something like it, let me bring you to reality. There is no AC, you seat outdoors, at night is cool, but during the day it can be stufy and hot... You seat on wood booths (see pictures), you some times see flies flying around (outside, not on the food), the ocassional stray dog; but other than that the place and tables are kept clean.
Locals drive there from many places, and its very popular. For tourists on a budget or daring of new things, it's great because its located minutes from San Juan's International Airport, along side the highway to Carolina. I believe that there are no english speaking employees, cause I saw a cater strugling while serving a tourist, so try to order in Spanish, have a spanish speaking friend come along or simply point to the food and they'll serve it.
There are 2 more Bebo's... a Bebo's BBQ in Carolina (65th Infanteria) and Bebo's Cafe in Calle Loiza. This last is a more fancy looking indoor with AC restaurant, I've never eaten there but I hear the food is great as well.
Even though I'm a local, I drove by several times on my way to Carolina and never stopped until last month when I was hungry at 3am with everything else close by closed, my boyfriend and I definitely enjoyed the food...
Remember don't expect anything fancy, but you'll definitly enjoy great food. Bon appetit!.
