Great tacos with your choice of various meat choice (beef, chicken, pork) and various seafood choices (shrimp,squid, and various fish) It had a great salad bar that you can fill up on while they are making your tacos.

Food here is a bit expensive, but if you take on the salad bar (all you can eat), then you can easily make it well worth it. My nephew came with me and really enjoyed the swings you could sit on outside while eating. Very casual, but a funky, hip atmosphere with very fresh food! If you like fish tacos....... More

I might have eaten here everyday for breakfast. They have a $3 breakfast special daily. I stayed with two items, the Omelette Crunch and the eggs with rice and beans. Not only were the entrees perfect but the salads and side that came with them were fresh and the tomatoes are still something we're raving about. Now I need to... More

Food was average and overpriced. Service was average. My kids loved the swings. I was expecting more, but was not satisfied. Food in Costa Rica is delicious, but this was not up to par.

We all had fish taco's and two drinks and was $90. The food was great, and like to others state, you order at the window and go find a seat. The swings around the bar look kind of cool, but they were all full. They come serve you and then you go up and get all the condiments you want... More

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.
