Ely's place is always great, I always end up here when visiting the island. The staff is nice and the food is great. Like the vibe here b/c it is very laid back and family oriented. Ocean front, this obviously makes it a favorite. Make sure you check before you go, I don't think they open every day

I really enjoyed Ely's Place, Kiosko #10. The staff was very nice, friendly and funny. The food was spectacular. We shared the alcapurrias and the piononos which were heavenly. Absurdly filled with flavor and goodness. My friend ordered the fried cheese.. wow! I could've eaten the whole thing myself. I ate pork chunks with rice and beans. It reminded me... More

Sometimes a "hole in the wall" type place can be a big surprise in terms of quality. My friends and I walked into the place because there were a few people close to the entrance that had mouth-watering plates, I still don't know what they were eating but it looked great! I had the fried pork with tostones and it... More

Been here a few times. During the day to eat, have some alcapurrias and other fried local food. At night, like all kiosks, the ambiance shifts into the local bar pub. They have live music sometimes. Good LGBTT amaaince to hang out.

We were hungry and wanted to eat something before heading out to the beach. Elys Place seemed quite inviting and we went in. We had some bacalaitos, tostones and chicken empanadas. We were expecting the food to be brought out quickly but we had to wait about 20 minutes as they were all made fresh. Really enjoyed the hot snacks... More

Food, service, friendships all you need is here. Authentic and fresh every time. Never a cold plate. Guaranteed to be the best kiosko in Luquillo.

Great food for a great price! The food is delicious, taste just like homemade. The service is good too. We ordered a mahi mahi filet and chuletas, they were both extremely good, great seasoning.
