Ok I will admit it, I love hamburgers, I'm always on the look out for a good one, living here in CR that is not an easy task, finally a place that uses homemade patties, great location for a quick bite, do yourself a favor and try the Monster Burger!

I saw Tacos Serrano and i was thinking great some great home made tortillas and good tacos. I went inside and was floored they didnt even have a soft shell taco on the menu. Only hard shell tacos that looked like they were made by Old El Paso taco shell company. the rest of the menu was hamburgers, chicken burgers... More

Visited this place a few days ago, Had the equivalent of a crunch wrap supreme from taco bell. It was good! However what i did not like was the price. The meal came with fries,and a coke. the cost was about $7.00US, way more than it's worth. The menu included hamburgers,and Burritos. Not your standard fare here in Costa Rica.... More

Fast food at a good price. Good fries. This place is like a local taco bell with other fast food like burgers. The owner is a cool guy with friendly service. However one of his employees suck. I go often to tacos Serrano but whenever the other dude is there I just skip it. His customer service skills suck. I... More

Asked for patacones - not even sure it was on the menu - and they made them for us. Delicious!! Great little find, slightly off beaten path.

This is a typical fast food restaurant - order a combo meal at the counter then they call you or bring your tray out when it's ready. I recommend any of the burritos - we had two different ones and they were delicious, fresh, and very filling. The chicken quesadilla was dry but flavorful. A great break from bland Tico... More
