quick cheap family dinner

had dinner with family while in Belen, did not want to go all in, so this was great alternative. Grilled chicken is key, tasty and affordable. call it a semi fastfood place with table service, which worked fine for us.

Always visit Rosti Pollos when in San Jose. :) Yummm Love the avocado and pico de gallo! The plantain dishes are superb. Always a great affordable place to grab a bite.

We stopped here before dropping the rental car off, heading out of town. The food was less than average. The chicken arrived without skin. My plantain after the rest of the meal had been almost completely finished. The selection was poor and the waiter was just there. All in all, I would have been better off eating at kfc.

I guess if you like chicken in a large variety of ways, rosti pollos is the place. It is all fast food and no so healthy but some people like that. It is a family place too and the price is OK.

Near Clinica Unibe hospital in San Jose, not the one in Alajuela, but they are all about the same. I frequently travel there with groups of Americans going to the hospital for medical care, members from Samaritan Christian Healthcare Ministries. We usually eat there at least once during the day, between appointments. So, I have eaten there many times. For... More

Fast food, specializing in chicken. Nothing to write home about, but very convenient to the Holiday Inn Express.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express 2 nights flying in and out of the SJO airport. One night we ate at the Denny's across the street the other we decided to try Rosti Pollos which is also across the street on the other side of the Casino and were pleasantly surprised. This is a reasonably priced restaurant (much better... More

As noted by others you have 2 choices if staying at the nearby hotels. We chose this as we prefer not to use chain restaurants when traveling. The rotisserie chicken was very good. We ordered sides that were new to us for the experience - after tasting the yucca sticks we decided that the plant got it's name when the... More

I was staying in the Hampton Inn next to the Holiday Inn Express in Alajuela, because it is near the airport and is located on the highway that leads to Monteverde where the Cloud Forest is. However, as far as dinning is concern, there is very limited choice. This one is one. The menu is simple, basically roast chicken with... More
