Great place to eat. My wife and I were coming back from the beach and saw this place and tried it. Very good food, friendly service and relaxed atmosphere. I would recommend the chicken wrap on the menu but everything looked good.

My wife and I walked up and down most of the strip looking for the best deal for dinner. We found it at Papas and Burgers. The staff is super friendly and laid back. Good burgers - one of the best I've had in Costa Rica, in fact. (And I've been here 5 months.)

Wanted a change from rice and beans so looked on tripadvisor for best cheese burger in Jaco Beach which led me to Papas and Burgers, a place I probably would not have found otherwise - and I agree it was excellent!

In Costa Rica finding a good burger and fries is not as easy as you might think. This was fresh, tasty and well priced.

Good choices for burgers and generous size. Disappointed in their fries as they were not crispy. Service was very friendly. Reasonably priced
