This is a place mainly for typical puertorican food. Food is excellent and prices affordable. Service is great as well. Major handicap is waiting times in queue

It all started in 1957, when Don Juan Vera-Martínez, an expert and impassioned gamecock breeder, started the Gallera Loma Bonita, a cockfight arena in the town of Yauco, Puerto Rico. There, he decides to open the restaurant where the famous "Can-Can" pork chops first appeared. The Can-Can pork chop became so famous that it's been copied all around the island, yet no one equals Don Juan's.
