I am a local reg on this place, going to drink and eat there twice a week apprx. Yesterday I invited 3 friends to share what was until yesterday a great place to eat/drink/chat... But well, due to a misunderstanding about a petty money change, I argue a little with the uneducated waitress. So of course I went on to... More

We stayed overnight in Santa Ana before a flight out of SJO on 7/23. We needed to get dinner for the four of us so we looked at the top rated restaurants on trip advisor and picked Porky's since burgers sounded good at the time and was only 2 km away. Not speaking much Spanish had not been a problem... More

This place is almost next door to us. One of the best cozy places we like to go to often. The staff is friendly, the owner is always on top of things (something you like to see). Burgers are out of this world. A very nice selection of burgers. Good combinations of seafood, bacon and all you can imagine. My... More

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
