Where to Eat in Rincón

Located on the westernmost tip of Puerto Rico, Rincón is known as the town of beautiful sunsets and is a paradise for beach lovers and surfers. Life in this picturesque place is relaxed — as any town with surfers should be — and there’s a special mood that distinguishes it from other places on the island.

One of the hallmarks of Rincón is its culinary offerings that are sure to please those who value finding healthy food without sacrificing flavor. This western municipality has food trucks that serve farm-to-table food, natural juices, fresh salads, and a variety of smoothies.

Or, for those who prefer to enjoy a well-seasoned, juicy steak, there is Cowboys Cantina, a family-friendly ranch on a mountain. You’ll find an elevated breakfast at The English Rose, which is so popular you will probably need a reservation.

Jack’s Shack

Jack’s Shack is a food truck, located near Maria's Beach, supports the fresh, organic, and local food market in Rincón with breakfast and lunch creations for vegans, vegetarians, and meat lovers. Jack's Shack food is light, fresh, and delicious.

You’ll find breakfast burritos or cinnamon-raisin French toast with fresh fruit. They also prepare sandwiches and wraps, and quinoa salad, all excellent options to grab-and-go on your way to the beach. Likewise, their ginger lemonade is popular and very refreshing.
