The Best Pincho Stands in Puerto Rico

Picture of Kris Pethick
Updated: 21 January 2018
Pinchos are one of the favorite and most easily found foods on the island of Puerto Rico.  Try these tender savory sticks loaded with chicken, pork or more at a food truck, restaurant or a front yard grill.
Jumbo's Pinchos

Located in Plaza Las Delicias in Ponce, Jumbo’s offers tasty pork or chicken pinchos, or both on the weekends.  Axel and his sister have mastered a marinade so the meat is wonderfully tender and flavorful.  Great with or without sauce, for breakfast, lunch or dinner or a snack in between.  Don’t wait too long to stop by, because they are only open until the pinchos run out, and they go fast.

Opening Hours
Sun - Sat :
9:00 am - 6:00 pm

Arecibo Flea Market

Near the entrance to the flea market you will find this pincho stand, and come hungry because you’re going to want to try them all.  Not only are the different meats incredible, they have a variety of sauces from which you can choose.  The spicy mango is excellent, as is the sweet guava sauce.  They also have traditional bbq sauce.  Grab one as you walk in and tour the kiosks, then go back for more.  Note:  The flea market technically opens at 2pm, but most stands and kiosks do not start business until about 5pm.
