Second Helpings


2728 S. Congress, 443-4252

Wed-Fri, 3-9pm; Sat, 4-10pm

It's impossible to miss the brightly painted Borinquen as you drive along Congress between Oltorf and Ben White. This friendly family-owned spot has the honor of being the only Puerto Rican restaurant in town with a menu that includes such specialties as Cuban pork sandwiches, arroz con pollo, arroz con giandules, and a dreamy flan, plus other national delicacies. The service is hospitable and if the weekend merengue music doesn't get you moving, you probably don't have a pulse.
