Bar-B-Que Tres Hermanas combining the method of cooking meat typical of the Pampa, which is in smoked to preserve it better and barbecue sauces traditional American style.

Where the Bull is, there is beef

The food is very good, the open air dining area is nice and clean, but the best part of our visit was the outstanding service. All of the waiters were excellent.

This is a roadside restaurant. I like that it is not too fancy and still it is neat. The food is good and the staff polite.

We stopped here for a meal on our way to Bagaces since it was on the main highway it was an easy stop. Restrooms were clean and nice. Had caprese which was decent and I shared a dish of beef kabobs with my sister. The beef was a bit tough. However, my husband had a rib-eye steak that was very... More

The restaurant located in the interamerican Highway is a great stop for having lunch when traveling. The place is comfortable, although doesn't have air conditioner and it's very hot. The food is delicious, it has great Costa Rican meat and sides. The service it's great, in my experience when the meat wasn't of my liking they replaced the plate, and... More

I go back and forth between San José and Guanacaste quite a bit. I also have family in Las Juntas - the closest town. When Tres Hermanas opened a few years ago it provided pretty good food (I mean meat) at a pretty good value. Now the food is nothing great and it's ridiculously expensive. Most cuts of meat are...

We stopped here on our way to the beach for lunch. Food was tasty. Very good Arroz con Pollo. BBQ Sandy was also very good. Priced a little high for a road side restaurant but would happily eat here again.

The place looks better from the road than on the inside, food and service were ok, but as they grew some fame in the country I was expecting something more on the high quality side. Guess I'll be giving them a second chance.
