Went there on advise of hotel. The cab ride was 20 US dollars. The food for two was 30 US. I have had better burgers at McDonalds and I haven't eaten there in years. This place was suppose to be the best burger in San Jose. Avoid if possible.

Extensive menu of burgers, with what may be fresh baked rolls. It comes with seasoned fries and makes a filling meal. Best burger so far in Costa Rica. Yes the parking is poor and they don't speak English (we are in a Spanish speaking country), but the overall atmosphere and service was great. Will go back again and recommend for... More

The burger was ok. Not sure it was worthy of some of the other reviews. It was really not all that large of a patty. Buns seemed like they may have been home made. Potato wedges could have been cooked a little longer. Communication a bit difficult if you don't speak Spanish. If you are close, give it a try,... More

I will say right off the bat that we were pleasantly surprised with Porky's. We knew it had been in Pozos for a couple of years and decided to give it a try. It was some of the best service I have had in Costa Rica (for a bar/restaurant), the burger selection was outstanding, the restaurant was spotless and nicely... More

We had so many neighbors and friends here in the Santa Ana area who bragged about the hamburgers in this restaurant so we decided "We must go there and find out what this is all about!" So yesterday our Driver who takes us around grocery shopping every Tuesday, always wants us to stop to get lunch or dinner before we... More

The environment is nice. The background music was too loud but we requested the waitress to put it down and she diligently did. The food was great. My wife's ribs were excellent. I had some patacones with avocado and Caesar's salad. Very tasty

Lucked into this place and so glad we did. Parking is limited and owner came out to help us. Food was absolutely scrumptious. Perhaps best BBQ ribs we've ever eaten (of many!). Burger was also terrific!! Prices were very reasonable, staff was attentive and both owners came out to speak to us. Ticos from San Juan, and all visitors, should... More

We were in Santa Ana for one night after 3 weeks at a language school and home stay in Turrialba and found this place on Trip Advisor. Great option for kids and families looking for a big burger selection and kid menu. Not too spendy, about $40 for a family of five including 3 beers!
