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.

So I see this place today for the first time and I'm like oh, that looks interesting. At the end of the photo shooting that I'm doing I tell them I'm hungry. Give me everything you got.and so they do. The macaroni was good the bowl was good the fries were good. What can I say but thank you.

We order a chicken soup, what could go wrong with that? A Lot! The only good thing about it was that it had good quantity of shredded chicken, immersed in a salty water with nothing else! Not even a piece of potato, or carrot, nothing else! No good! I tried an empanada, well, not good enough to return... Update. I appreciate your honesty and customer service, I received the refund, thank you! I will give it another try, your customer service deserves another star, thank you for paying attention to these reviews

This place is amazing. We used them to cater our holiday party at work. The food was so good that I needed to bring my family to experience the food. Great owners with really good conversation. Can you tell that we really like the food?!?!

I LOVE the food truck and now the restaurant! I usually get empanadas, but those bowls at the restaurant are THE BEST.

Boricua soul is a wonderful place to get good food, and have great fellowship with friends. I go to Boricua when I want the taste of culture but also the taste of home. I'm always greeted with a smile and even if it takes a little longer than usual I don't mind waiting because there are always good conversations.

Absolutely amazing! The fusion of flavors is perfect, and the prices are worth it, regardless of which menu item you choose. Wish I lived closer to frequent this place more often.

I got the empanadas and Mac and cheese on a whim and was immediately regretting not getting a dozen. Flaky, delicious and soulful!
