Second Time Even Better.

I returned after 6 months to try Porky's Burger Bar again. I was satisfied the first time but thought the burger, although good, was over-rated. We had an order of Alas or wings (12 for about $10) and they were excellent. Unlike the original Buffalo Wings these were breaded. I usually ask and won't... read more

I love their burgers (good prices too) but since they expanded and built their deck the music they have been playing on weekends just seems to be appropriate for a nightclub and not a neighborhood joint. (extremely loud) Will not go back on weekends...

I have watched this place evolve and the food has evolved immensely. They have a delicious selection of burgers. The wings are delicious too. Sometimes I get my burger cooked a little dry and when I asked for a juicy lucy, there was no cheese in the burger. I have had a share of hit or misses, but overall, great... More

I love this place. They're practically my corner bar. I'd say I might eat here at least once every 1 or 2 weeks. They have FOUR PAGES of burger recipes! By that, I mean... different combos and sizes of meats, from beef to chicken to chorizo and even lamb. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of the meats, which... More

I've had the best burguers in this place. it's even better than more refined burguer restaurants and it's cheaper. I recommend the Juicy Lucy.

My son had to have a Porky bacon burger so off we went to Porky's for dinner... Yes, the burgers are as good as I have found in Costa Rica and as pricey as any. They have a large variety of stuff to add to them... I prefer the pork burger covered with cole slaw.... We had some patacones with... More

You must come to Santa Ana and visit Porky's to watch a game or have a beer and a delicious burger. The place has grown from a very small little restaurant to a now full blown bar with live music and high def TV's in just over a year. Their specialty: burgers. The menu has the biggest and most exotic... More

All are good if you are up for fried ground meat on a bun.. That is the specialty, not barb-b-q. They do offer ribs but the price is unbelievably high.. The ground beef is good... The ground pork is better for my money and my wife loves the ground lamb. The potatoes are cut there and not frozen french fries... More

A local business in Santa Ana that has tasty food and great service - perfect! The place is clean and the ribs, according to my husband, delicious! He had a half rib order which he found filling and the plate came with cole slaw and potato salad that tasted of summer picnics. I had the chicken fajitas with nice fresh... More
