AOL Travel Editor’s Review

It’s been around since 1953 and people keep flocking to Sam’s, even if it’s no longer at the height of its culinary prowess. Once a powerhouse of Puerto Rican cooking, it’s now mostly famous for its thick, juicy burgers—although you can still get dishes like fried pork, grilled shrimp, and Cordon Bleu chicken. The location can’t be beat: El Patio is close to the Ponce de Leon statue in Old San Juan, and has an attractive, sand-colored exterior with dark wooden doors and black grills on the window, a la old Spain.
