  2. Ralph Blessing says:

    I know of two Outback Steakhouses in PR … one is in the Embassy Suites at the San Juan airport and the other is in the Caguas Shopping Center.

    There are at least two PF Changs in PR. One is Caguas Mall next to Outback and the other is in the Ponce Mall.

    EDITOR: Thanks for the tip!

    When will Daily Queen come back to Puerto Rico also dunkin Donuts and checkers all my favorite


    • Hi Myriam,
      It would be better if you write the parent company of all your favorite restaurants that you want to see in PR. If they see high demand, they are more likely to bring those restaurants to PR. I have no inside information as to when or if those restaurants will come to PR. There was a contract dispute with Dunkin Donuts, resulting in that brand leaving PR about 3-4 years ago.


  4. Duane says:

    Dave & Buster’s is now in Bayamon (Plaza del Sol).


  5. Rafael says:

    There is a Boston Market in the food court at the Fort Buchanan army base. Also a Burger King in Santurce that closed following Hurricane Maria is set to reopen as a Dunkin Donuts. However, I think all the Blimpie Sub places closed down. There were two in Santurce as well.
