This was the first restaurant we ate while in Jaco. It was recommended to us by our driver. The seating fit about 30 people and it's outdoor seating. You stand in line and pick out what you want to eat. The selection was pretty basic, but the freshness and ingredients used was really flavorful. We had a group of 7... More

I ate lunch there and the food was great. It's cafeteria style with lots of good, freshly cooked choices. I had a pork chop with rice, beans and plantains. Real tasty sauce on the pork chop. The price is reasonable as well. It's open air and on the street, but I love that atmosphere.

Cafeteria style, with just enough of choices. We had lunch there, but I'm sure the breakfast would be just as good.

It's almost like somebody's grandma is in the back cooking. Buffet style, selections plentiful. Ice tea a bit sweet for me but otherwise, a gem off Pastor Diaz Ave...

This is hands down the busiest restaurant in Jaco and for good reason. Owned and operated by a local family that keep the soda clean and neat considering just how much business they do everyday. It's nothing very fancy, but if your feeling like a home cooked Costa Rican meal, this is the place. Open air, buffet style where a... More

You cannot beat the food here and the value! We missed the first day (too late) but let me tell you - you cannot beat this place for a killer "typical" breakfast! four people absolutely stuffed for $20. We never made it back for dinner, but the next 3 days we made sure to eat here for breakfast!

Was highly recommended by the locals here. Came here twice during my 5 day trip in Jaco. They serve specialty dishes from pork feet to ox tails and many other local dishes. Come hungry and expect the long wait on line, but it will worth it.
