I felt like I became a regular at Rustico during my week in Jaco. My go-to dish was the gallo pinto along with the stewed chicken and sausage. Who eats chicken for breakfast? Costa Rican's do and now I do as well. The meat was tender and fall off the bone, and I made sure to mix the stewed chicken... More

If you are looking to taste local food, fast service and great value this is your spot. Centraly located in Jaco, Rustico y allays full. As full as you plate with food for $5 including drink, As it is always full the food is fresh.

Simply point, smile, and enjoy homey, delicious food. The fried fish reminds me of my own abuelas. I am becoming enamored of the Costa Rican way of serving everything with mashed potatoes. Try something new, its probably good.

Go there are just point to the food you want. Its that simple. The locals eat there and they take American money. Eat vegetarian, they charge 1.00 less. Eat extra meat, 1.00 more. Breakfast was quite ample and good. Lunch and dinner had more fish, pork, chicken and everything included a drink, even pepsi cola light! Cheap, easy, fast. Right... More

This place serves traditional Costa Rican casados. The price is very good for the amount of food that is served to you. You will enjoy it for sure.

Our family of 4 adults and two children ate here for a very reasonable price. The lunch plate of the day with a drink is 2500 colones. The food was Costa Rican and delicious. You can eat Subway, Pizza Hut etc. at home!

I eat at this soda almost once a week! They offer both breakfast and lunch with a drink for only c2,500 ($5)!! The food is always fresh and hot because they are always busy and sell so much. The place is clean and just off the beach. Best fast lunch in town for only $5!
