We stopped here for lunch on our vacation. The food was good, but did take awhile. The owners are incredibly nice and we wish them success!!

I was a surprised when I saw this restaurant, the restaurant is so well put together, but I was like "Really BBQ in Costa Rica" normally its all about the seafood. But someone mentioned to me that there was BBQ place with great ribs. So I figured that I would try it out. I arrived and ordered the "Smoked BBQ... More

Never thought I would be having BBQ in Costa Rica but I had already heard great things from this place so decided I had to check it out. Ribs were out of this world and I chose mash and homemade baked beans which were yummy! Even came back for breakfast and had their breakfast burrito full of pulled pork, cheese,... More

I'm a BBQ junkie, so I'm usually pretty tuff on rating bbq joints. But I knew I wasn't at home when we stopped in here. But I can say I was fairly impressed with our food. My daughter and I both had the brisket platter. It was sliced brisket and came with a side of beans, fries and a couple... More

LongBoards has the BEST ribs in town! I've also tried the Pulled Pork Sandwich, Chicken Wings, Hamburgers and Tacos and they were ALL fantastic! Great place for people-watching too. Highly recommend LongBoards!

Casual dining, great spot for watching the World Cup. My kids would go often for lunch. My favorite thing on the menu were the tamarindo-style nachos. Fun, casual place.

Really good food at a reasonable price - I had the pulled pork sandwich and sat at the longboard right by the street - fun for people watching too while we ate some tasty food.

My husband and I laughed at the idea of American BBQ in CR. We were just there to watch the world cup and have a few beers. We were WRONG! An expat from the Carolinas started this restaurant and brought the best the South has to offer with him. Happy we happened to stop!

My wife and I didn't expect the world when we walked up (Costa Rica had just won a World Cup game, so the scene on the street was outrageous). But after we sat down, Jeff made us feel like we were the only ones in town. He's a tremendous host, and the BBQ was fantastic (with three types of sauce).... More

We went here one day for lunch because it was recommended to us. My daughter (3 yo) doesn't eat many things so my husband ordered the shredded pork platter so everyone could have some. My 5 yo loves food so we weren't surprised to see him munch it down but my 3 yo couldn't get enough. She loves the food... More
