Great Food But Wow It's Hot!

I've eaten at Tacobar in Santa Ana many times so decided to eat here. The food is exactly the same. Great tasting food that is relatively healthy. It's very hot in Jaco and all of the seating is outside. If you go here in the middle of the afternoon you will be sweating. The parking situation isn't... read more

Very conveniently located and a healthy eating option. Very casual set up. Order at the window and sit yourself and your food is delivered to your table. Very good salad bar and large portions.

As a local, I've checked it out a few times and the place was a mess, staff was a bit meek and the food was disappointing. But if you're there for the swings, you're set!

After a long drive we stopped at the Tacobar. The bar salad was terrible, just left over, not fresh at all and the staff were not nice, I ask for a spoon and I got a bad face and the spoon never came. I when to pay and the cashier wasn't happy and the toilets dirty. Not recomend it.

Great concept and super easy to modify according to dietary restrictions.. We order fish and chips and a mix of fish and shrimp tacos, and the serving size was HUGE!! I mean one fish taco could...

For 2 tacos it cost nearly $12. The food was okay but way too expensive. You do get the all you can eat buffet with that price, however there's no option for those who choose to eat just the tacos. Also the buss boy there was very pushy and you could tell he disliked tourists

TacoBar is not a bar it is a informal type of restaurant centrally located in Jaco Beach. You have to aproach the cashier to order what you want to eat and they will deliver it to your table once its ready. It has a good salad bar. Price range is médium but its worth it for a new experience. If... More

The Food was very good and they give you A LOT of it for the price however the Service was subpar and treated us in many ways like we weren't even there. A lot of younger employees standing around and it took us a while to get any help. We would go back for the flavor but wished the attitude... More

This is a must stop while in Jaco CR. The menu is extensive and everything we have had over the last 4 years has been very good. The Smoothies stand out as they are reasonably priced and refreshing on a hot day. You can even sit on swings to eat. The fish is very fresh and they offer an extensive... More
