Fodor's Expert Review El Resuelve

$ Vieques Casual

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

When you hanker for hearty platters of real local fare with real island-born locals, this is the place to be. Bustling at lunch and by night, this open-air colmado (grocery-restaurant) presses up against the main Isabel Segunda–Esperanza road. It's barely more than a shack with a counter and shaded aluminum and plastic seating out back. Service is laid-back to the max, but it's worth the wait for albondigas (meatballs), crab empanadas, chicken with rice and beans, barbecue ribs, and—for the daring—boiled pigs' ears. Locals sometimes kick up their heels out back, where there's a pool table and slot machine.
