The Best BBQ restaurant in Puerto Rico

If you want the best BBQ restaurant in Puerto Rico, come on down to San Juan Smokehouse.  In front of the Historic 100 Year Old Santurce Farmer's Market, at San Juan Smokehouse, we make it our top priority to make you feel at home. Ask around! We are known for our humble hospitality, cold brews and our BBQ ribs!

Recreating southern taste with a Puerto Rican twist, our Memphis-style dry rubbed ribs will make you glad you chose our Smokehouse among other restaurants in Puerto Rico. These delicious ribs have a very dark bark, smoked on our flaming grills to give it that excellent smoked barbecue taste, impossible to resist for any meat lover.

We are a family owned restaurant, so make yourselves at home. Choose from our great selection of classic southern food favorites, and enjoy occasional live musical performances while you eat.  

Making your Dreams come True by serving up Southern Favorites with a Local Puerto Rican Twist. 

Here's the word on the street:
