Not real BBQ too pricy...I thought it was a BBQ joint and was disappointing that they really had nothing on the menu.. Only one time is needed to know ..never go back..

Disregard my rating because we didn't get to eat here -- there was a big poster sign out front that it was closed for the season. (The sign said the actual months, something like May until November?)

At the beginning of April i traveled to costa rica and stayed at a hotel where they offered an all inclusive plan. Let me tell you, a couple of days in this place saved my stomach. There was nothing like filling up on a poutine and a Philly cheese steak after days of rice and beans. It was great! May... More

This is a very simple eating place with picnic benches just across the road from the beach in Hermosa and simply the best value we had during a 2 week stay in Costa Rica. The owners (who are hands-on owners as cooks and counter operators) are Canadian who a simply a delight to talk to. Their range of smoked meats... More

We didn't expect to find Montreal style smoked meat and poutine in Costa RIca so Papa Hog's was a pleasant surprise! I had the pulled pork sandwich, my husband had the ribs and we split an order of ribs accompanied by beer that we purchased at the grocery store next door. The food was amazing and the owners were so... More

This is a small, informal, outside, roadside restaurant with 3 picnic tables. The owners (from Canada) are friendly. The BBQ ribs were good - served Friday and Saturday. The chicken was tasty and fresh.

Seriously! This guy sells poutine and smoked meat sandwiches. An ex-pat from north of Toronto, Canada. Very friendly! Ask him how he recreates the poutine cheese and where he gets his pastrami from, quite interesting!

We stopped in here for dinner ( it looked dark and slightly deserted at about 7:30pm, but we went up to the window anyways) and were greeted by the super friendly canadian owners. The pulled pork & chicken sandwiches were really good, but the fries were the real highlight - actually made from potatoes, not frozen like everywhere else! Visit... More

We were a group of 7 and stopped by for some awesome pulled pork sandwiches one day. The owners were very nice and agreed to make ribs for our group during the week, since we didn't have the chance to try them on the weekend. We ordered them the day before and they were ready right on time. We enjoyed... More
