I am going to add Hollywood Smokehouse to the list......we were able to fill up a bunch of teenage boys for a reasonable price and they all loved their meals. they had everything from burgers to ribs and all loved their meals.
We usually go to Fermin's a couple of times a week when we're on the island. The ownership had changed hands the last time we were there, same owner as Mojito's in downtown. Pricing was still the same. I think a bucket of beer was less than $15 US and one dinner for around $10 US easily satisfied the two of us.
We'll be stopping there in a few days and will include it in our trip report.
A lot of wonderful information.... now need to decided where to eat.
We both enjoy Grouper (me most seafood) good steak and ethic foods (like to try different things.)
Sometimes I will order my dessert before dinner, knowing after eating there is no room for it.
pegmeister and i often speak about eating dessert 1st.
it is a great idea.
