Friday nite Fish & Chips was a delight. The outside was crispy and the inside was cooked just right! Real home-made fries, too, and plentiful. The onion rings were also very good, but I found them a bit wide. - There was enough for 2....More

At Locos Backyard Grill, we are committed to creating dishes with only the freshest, highest quality ingredients available. This sets us apart from others in the area. As a bonus, our portions are more than generous, which is how we got our motto "big enough to share, good enough not to!" Check out our menu on our website or on our Facebook page (/LocosPanama).We are also involved in our community by holding recycling events, charity drives for the local orphanage, and talent exhibitions performed by students at the local international school...and you even get discounts for your donations! Locos also has a multitude of other events for all ages, like karaoke, salsa dancing (with free lessons), guitar competitions, and beer pong. Every Friday evening from 5pm-8pm, we host our Signature Happy Hour featuring $1.75 homemade sangria, $2.50 Cuba Libres, and buy 5 get 1 free buckets of beer. The environment is also important to the Locos family and we use the donations we receive through our recycling drives in projects around the property. Fences have been made from bamboo and wine bottles; planters have been made from broken stools and airplane tires; and we've even constructed our bar out of recycled chain-link fence and liquor bottles.
