I have been wanting to try Boricua Soul for quite some time. Finally tried it today and WOW! Unbelievably delicious and when you finish your empanadas you will be stuffed but want more because the food is so good. If you have been waiting to come and eat here STOP waiting and come feast.

Where to start.... we went looking for this place late on a Tuesday night. We are not familiar with the area so we called to ask for directions. The guy that answered the phone was very attentive and helpful. We got to the restaurant like 40 minutes before closing time, but we were greeted and welcomed immediately. All the staff was very nice and friendly. We ordered beef empanadas as appetizer. Those empanadas were DELICIOUS!!!!! For main course we had a bowl of arroz con gandules, tostones (fried green bananas) and pernil (pork). The whole thing was amazing! Very flavorful!! I can happily say that I finally found a great caribbean food place with lovely people and an outstanding service!! I almost forget, they served us a yummy sweet potato 🍠 empanada 🤤🤤🤤 for dessert! It was to die for! Location is very nice, specially at night in the Christmas season.

Counter order deliver to table type spot that merges soul food and latino. I tried 3 empanadas (1 beef, 1 chicken, 1 pork) and mac n cheese. I really enjoyed the texture of the empanadas. Not falling apart and nice and firm bit but not hard. I would rank them beef, chicken, and then pork. Pork was supposed to be NC BBQ style, but I thought it was a little dry. Please note this is a minor criticism and they also have an assortment of sauces which were delicious and took care of that problem. Really enjoyed the beef and chicken empanadas. Mac n cheese was delish. Bunch of there sides I would like to try. Was really eyeing someone else's right and peas which looked great. Nice spot though and I will go back. Nothing seems to ever survive in their location of ATC but maybe this was the right model. I should have added that staff were exceedingly friendly which was nice. Small place so not a ton of seating.
