  • Cash only
  • The soups are excellent! And they came with steaming hot tortillas!
  • Breakfast, steak and eggs, Mexican omelette
  • I have lived in Newport my entire life and have never tasted a better taco anywhere else. Very well priced and of high quality. Besides the crispy tacos, I highly recommend their Picante house soup
  • The carnitas are delicious, and the chicken is lean and healthy.
  • Their breakfast burritos are amazing! Make sure to ask foe sour cream and salsa with it! Also, their soup is to die for. Definitely a must if you're on the island. They also cater!
  • Excellent food and customer service. Also Picante Martin's is no longer cash only, They utilize Square and accept credit cards.
  • Delicious chicken enchiladas and flautas, very fresh! Their side salad presentation is also very nice, and tasty.
  • Wonderful place. Had a nice little vegetarian breakfast
  • Try the Picante's Chicken Soup - One of my favorite soups!
  • Try the Torta de Carnitas
  • Call ahead and get your food to go- this place is popular, for good reason, and doesn't have a lot of seating. Definitely get the chicken soup.
  • Make sure you bring cash but all the food is awesome!
  • It's either the enchiladas suizas or the sopes. THE BEST!
  • Chicken Tacos are great. The mini bean and cheese burriots are a favorite for the kids. CASH ONLY
  • Best chicken soup
