Interesting place. Fast food Costa Rica style. In downtown Jaco, a taco bar.... you stand in line, order you taco, pick your meat, your quantity, your preferred style (fried, grilled, etc.). They have beer and softdrinks as well. You pay and get a number, you go to your table, all outside. There is a bar like counter with fun swings... More

Sometimes the atmosphere outweighs the food experience. TB hits a home run with their quaint atmosphere. The kids had to sit in the swings for dinner. Nice! Tacos were very good. A little pricey for the offering. $15 usd per person with water. Add 13% tax.

Tacobar has some of the best food in town! The staff is always friendly, and I love enjoying my gallo pinto in one of the swinging chairs. The food is reasonably priced and the quality is always top notch.

We went to eat here twice because it was so good. They have a fabulous salad bar that is included with your meal. Tip: just order one taco and fill your plate from the delicious offerings in the salad bar. They could improve their beer selection, though.

Had two 3 taco dinners, and drinks for $40. Not horrible prices, but a bit more than expected. Tacos were good if not great. Worth the experience, but have had better tacos.

Tried this place on a recommendation and it was good. A little more geared to tourist but not a bad choice. The smoothie was really yummy and they had a great salad bar!

The food is really good, and the salad bar included with the tacos offers rice, baked potatoes, pasta, bread, different types of salsa, and more! The place is nice and open, the service is really good, and the portions are quite big.

Their $3 breakfast special is worth it, and changes every day. The fish tacos are delicious, I've been here about two weeks and I think I've gone to taco bar at least 5 or 6 times. It's just so good!! They have a pretty wide selection and you can mix and match. The "bar" of sides is a nice addition... More
