Walked in to enquire about the menu. Limited Spanish on our side, but one of the owner's daughters spoke English. She suggested a local dish Chifrijo (meat, beans, rice with garnish of tortillas, cucumber and lemon wedges), tamales and a pear pulp drink. Very tasty...More

I went for lunch, it is a casual restaurant, nothing fancy. The service was very good, tasty mexican food and affordable prices. I tried the horchata and was superb. Tacos al Pastor and Gringas were tasty as well. You pay at the cashier.

If you want the best tacos in CR, come here! Pastor meat is really tasty. Great place for family or business meal.

8 of us had 1 hour for lunch. The waiters are attentive and fast. The menu hasn't changed and serves good food. Closest to the real tacos al pastor. Drink order (sodas and plenty of fruit juices like pineapple, strawberry) was served fast and always...More
