FALL RIVER (WBSM) — El Jibarito Restaurant closed last December and will reopen next month, bringing back its mouthwatering Puerto Rican flavors.

Once located on Rhode Island Avenue, El Jibarito is opening its new doors on Bedford Street. It first opened in 2020 but was permanently closed just after three years. Now, customers can re-experience its authentic dishes.

If you are unfamiliar with El Jibarito, the restaurant takes pride in "offering authentic culinary experience that showcases the vibrant flavors and rich tradition of Puerto Rican cuisine," as its website states.
