Wanted to take a break from the traditional Costa Rica food dishes. Stoped here while stoping in Jacó for the night. Great atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and helpful when it came to understanding the language barrier, and the burgers were amazing!!!

This place has delicious food! The portions are perfect, the prices are good, and the service is great. I had a burger and my boyfriend had the chicken fingers and we both walked away very satisfied. We will definitely be going back!
