The ribs were so good, we ordered a 2nd plate! This restaurant was recommended to us by one of the bartenders at our resort. Ceviche and ribs were amazing! Fresh, tasty, and way cheaper than resort food. I would come back here for more bbq. Good spot to hang with locals.

We tried this place out today and thought it was great! We ordered ceviche, steak/shrimp meal and chicken/rice. It was all great! It tasted good, had great service and the food came out quickly. They also offer free wifi and the bathrooms were clean. If you're passing through this area check it out.

My boyfriend got the famous ribs, and for the price it was a delicious steal. So much food! I picked a ransom tilapia dish off the menu as I didn't understand it, and god, I made a great choice. It was tilapia perfcetly cooked with garlic and oil. The sides were amazing as well. Every time we drove by this place my boyfriends mouth would water!

Came here for lunch around 3pm after zip lining near La Fortuna. We were hungry and this hit the spot! My husband had a rich seafood soup and a massive portion of barbecued smoked ribs. I enjoyed a fresh palmito salad with a good amount of slivered cabbage and for a main dish I tried chifrijo, a delightful variation of beans and rice topped with chicharrones, pico de gallo and tortilla chips. Not the cheapest food on Highway 142, but fresh and tasty and worth a visit.

Amazing local flavor and style. The value for the money here is incredible. Steak and ribs are the specialties, and everything is served with the personal care, respect, and authentic goodwill so common in small, breezy, authentic Costa Rican restaurants.
